  • Use warmer water for heavily soiled loads (40-60 degrees).
  • Re-use the same shells for approx. four more loads.
  • If you prefer a scent on your laundry, pop a few drops of your favourite essential oil on the wash bag (such as lavender or eucalyptus).
  • When finished, shells are thin and brittle, at which point they can be added to your compost to break down naturally.
You can also make a multi-purpose liquid by boiling the berries for 15 minutes, and use the liquid for anything, from shampoo to a cleaner.

Title : So far, so good
Comment : I bought some of these t try about a month ago, so haven’t been using them for very long and haven’t tried using them with anything especially mucky or mud covered yet. But so far they are working pretty well. They come with a couple of little draw string bags, which you pop in the wash with about 5 soap berries/soap nuts inside. So far, I have neede to replace the soap nuts about once per week, so they are probably quite cost effective. Might perhaps need more during winter when laundering more heavy clothing? I am using them with the ‘Clean Linen’ essential oil laundry fragrance.

Title : Work well
Comment : I love that I can now have a completely environmentally friendly laundry. These little berries are a wonderful find! They work pretty well but I'm finding that they need a little extra assistance when I'm washing whites as alone they don't work as well as I'd hoped. In saying that though, I have a front loader and so this could be why. I'm going to use them to make up a liquid instead and see how that works. All in all, I am happy with their performance and especially love that I am reducing the amount of toxic crap in my home.

Title : Amazing
Comment : Great for washing clothes that aren't heavily soiled. The soapberries themselves can be used multiple times, such a clever alternative to harmful detergents.

Title : Love it!
Comment : I love the smell of these and I've had years of allergy issues with all kinds of detergents and my skin and I've had no problems with these. I bought a 250g bag mid last year and it's still going.

Title : Good alternative, can be adapted for good front-loader performance
Comment : I have a front loader, so putting them in the little baggy doesn't work as well (less water around, so the berries don't release the sapponins as well, also I wash in cold water which doesn't help). Instead I've been boiling a few berries in water for 20 min, then I use the liquid as my detergent with a couple drops of essential oil just for fragrance. For less hassle, I do a big batch and freeze it in ice cube trays, then just put a few in the soap tray of the machine each load. With this method, they're doing great and I will definitely be back for more once mine eventually run out!

Title : Alternative to nasty powders!
Comment : We tried these out to get away from chemical washing powders as we were getting bad skin reactions after trying many different brands. We first tried these as they state with the shells in the small washing bag but because we have a front loader it wasn't able to rinse off the soap properly, so we tried boiling the nuts in water and using the concentrate from the boiling process and it works a treat. We use 1/4 cup of liquid per load for an 8.5kg washing machine with a few drops of essential oil and 2 tbsp of sodium percarbonate and the results are the same if not better than commercial laundry detergents, very pleased!

Title : Interesting product
Comment : Very interesting product, I have been using it for a few weeks now and I didn't notice any difference with normal detergents, it works just as well. I usually add a few drops of essential oils for the scent, otherwise the berries have no smell at all.

Title : Good job
Comment : I'm loving these soap berries. They last a long time, you can go in store to refill your bag, and they seem to do a good job of cleaning our clothes. The only downfall is that they don't seem to remove odors very well, so I ended up buying a bottle of the Tinderbox laundry additive oil to add some fragrance to our washing.
