We would never deliberately put chemicals on our skin, so why put it on our clothes? Our certified organic soap nuts (soap berries) offer the most natural way to do your laundry and are very gentle on your skin – perfect for sensitive skin, allergies and babies. Plus you can safely put them on compost after use.
- Enough soap nuts for at least 75+ washes
- Includes two organic cotton pouches
- Hypoallergenic, Antibacterial and Antifungal
- Great for all skin types (including sensitive skin, eczema and psoriasis)
To use soapnuts as a natural laundry detergent, put 5-10 soapberry shells in the small cotton washing pouch and tie it closed. Then simply pop the pouch in your washing machine with your laundry and run as normal.
The hot (or warm) water enters the cotton pouch and releases the saponin (soap) from the soapberry shells within the bag, that then spreads out in the machine and naturally washes your clothes.
If you wash your clothes with cold water, you will have to soak the soapberries in the pouch in hot water beforehand for several minutes and pour soapberries with the water in the washing machine. That is to help them release the soap and make them work as a laundry detergent.
You can use the same shells 3-5 times, or until they become thin and lose their colour which is when you can recycle them in the compost. Brilliant!
