Soap nuts are a wonderful eco-friendly option for laundry detergent! Soap nuts contain saponin, a natural detergent that has been used in India for centuries. The soap nut shell absorbs water and releases the saponins which circulate as a natural surfactant in the wash water, freeing dirt, grime, and oils from clothing.
Just a few soap nuts (4-6) left in the unbleached muslin bag works for an entire load. There will be little or no bubbles during the wash cycle, and it will smell lightly similar to apple cider. They can be used several times and then composted afterward. They will look grey and mushy when they need to be changed. This 4 oz. bag will wash approximately 77 loads of laundry which is 11 cents a load.
Soap nuts are not nuts, but a relative of the Goji berry and are safe for those with nut allergies. Soap nuts have been used in many ways in Ayurvedic medicine and one of those is as a cure for eczema and psoriasis. If you have sensitive skin, this is the safest way to clean your laundry. Absolutely wonderful for baby's clothes including cloth diapers. The most eco-friendly way to wash your clothes!
**Soap Nuts can be ground to a powder as well and mixed with water to be used as a natural cleanser.
These are deseeded Soap Berries so will come in whole and in pieces.
