Soapnuts, Soap Nuts, Soap Pods or Soap Berries are a fantastic and natural alternative to regular laundry powder. Soapnuts offer an environmentally friendly method of washing, are economic and easy to use. Soapnuts are now available in 1kg and 2 kg quantities. They contain no bleach or harsh chemicals as normal washing powders do, after all they are a natural product picked from a tree and so their washing action is quite amazing when you consider that normal powders and laundry products require harsh chemicals to make them effective.
Customers who have tried Soapnuts have been pleasantly surprised at how good and effective they are. Like any other washing powder, a stain remover may be required for stubborn stains. Please see the cleaning and laundry category for smaller quantities of soapnuts
Place 4 - 8 half soap nut shells in a wash bag or the end of a sock and tie well. Place in the washing machine with the laundry and wash at your normal temperature. The same soapnut shells can be used for up to 4 washes depending on temperature and length of the wash. Very hard water areas may need to use a few more half shells compared to soft water areas. Please make sure that the shells are securely contained. The soapnuts can then be placed in the compost bin after use.
