  • 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 : Clothes not clean!
Comment : I got a trial packet of these with the plastic free July bundle and was very disappointed with the performance. When I was hanging my clothes to dry, I noticed that my husband's shirts still smell dirty. Having read other reviews, it seems the berries do not have good performance in front loaders (which I have) or with a cold wash (which I use). Very happy with customer service by Biome though.

Title : Never going back ...
Comment : It's taken me a while to get around to trying these but I highly recommend them now I have. I use the Clean Linen Tonic with it. Works just as good as the chemical-laden poisons I used to wash my clothes with.

Title : Pleasantly surprised
Comment : I had been eying these soap berries off for some time but was nervous and suspicious, but really I was just not informed enough. After reading the info biome had shared about soap berries I became more curious and decided to take the plunge. I now successfully use them in my front loader, as a liquid and a more looking forward to using them in other applications around the home. Very happy.

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 : Great Eco Alternative
Comment : Love these soap berries!! After a little getting used to i'm now addicted. If i have heavily soiled clothing or a large load I will sometimes add some washing powder.

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!
