Clean, soften & remove odors naturally - great for sensitive skin/eczema.  Natural Laundry Wash.

Soap berries, or soap nuts, are dried fruit berries from the trees of the Sapindus Mukorossi - in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains.   Our soap nuts are deseeded and ready to use!

Their outer shells contain saponin, which creates a natural soap when agitated in water.

They replace traditional detergents & fabric softeners.

SOAP NUTS REPLACE traditional detergents and fabric softeners.

PRE-TREAT STAINS with our STAIN REMOVER for greasy stains and/or BRIGHTENS & WHITENS for stubborn, set-in stinks & stains (and as a laundry enhancer).

WASHING MACHINES: works in standard & HE high efficiency washing machines. 

PLACE 5 SOAP BERRIES (same for HE & std machines) in something that will allow the saponin/soap to release into the wash without leaving the soap berries loose.  You can use a sock/tube sock (knotted at the end), a reusable mini wash bag, a delicates zipper mesh bag, an old nylon tied closed.  Toss it into the drum of your washing machine with your laundry.  Works in cold, warm, hot water & with all load sizes.

RINSE CYCLE:  Yes, your soap nuts stay in your machine for the entire time, including the rinse cycle - they add extra softness.  Remember soap nuts are low sudsing so you laundry is not going to leave a detergent residue buildup full of fragrances & carcinogenic chemicals like the other laundry detergents.  You'll be amazed how clean & soft your laundry will feel.  

DID YOU KNOW other detergents leave so much residue left on your clothing/linens that you could wash them in plain water for up to 14 washes before all of the old detergent will still be released.  Those nasty chemicals stay on your clothes and trap dirt, oils and funky smells into your "clean" laundry.  AND they are absorbed into your skin every single day... YUCK:(

REMOVE bag/sock and set aside for your next load before placing clothes into dryer or line drying.  

LEFT YORE NUTS IN THE DRYER?  Don't worry, we all have done it!  They will not harm, stain or rewash your clothes.  Don't throw these soap nuts away.  If they still have saponin/soap in them, use them again!

REPLACE the soap nuts when they become thin and light tan/grayish in color.  Still not sure?  Place them in a jar with water and shake.  If they still create suds, use them again.  If not, toss them in your compost or yard to biodegrade.

AVERAGES 5 to 10 loads of laundry for the original 5 soap nuts.  Mileage may vary dependent upon the type and temperature of your water.  Soft water yields more loads than hard; cold water yields more than hot.

HARD AND WELL WATER: To help soften your water, we suggest adding 1-2 Tbsp of BRIGHTENS & WHITENS to your laundry and it also enhances cleaning power - crisper whites & brighter colors!

CLOTH DIAPERS & TOWELS: soap nuts are great for cloth diapers & towels.  They don't leave the detergent residue build up which repels water.  You want your cloth diapers & towels to absorb liquid, not repel it.  This detergent residue build-up leaves that ammonia smell in diapers and that funky smell on towels and in your washing machine.  LESS STINK. MORE ABSORBENCY!

HAND WASHING FOR DELICATES: soap nuts are great for delicates like silk, wool and cashmere.

SOAP NUTS are a great laundry detergent or soap for sensitive skin and eczema.
