You are making a difference:

  • Supporting the 'Grow Nepal' initiative which creates a future for the Nepalese people, and protecting the trees helps reduce deforestation in the Himalayas.
  • Reducing pollution by using a raw plant product with almost no processing or packaging and that is fully compostable.
  • Completely chemical free, grey water safe, septic safe.
  • No plastic bottle - calico bag can be reused and soap nuts can be composted at the end of use.


Intructions for use:

  • Place the equivalent of five whole soap berry shells in the small cotton bag provided.
  • Add bag to normal washload and remove when finished. 
  • 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.


  • Money saving. Soap nuts cost around 10c per wash load for a 1kg bag. Compared to conventional washing powders, they can save you a great deal over the course of a year. Data supplied by That Red House.

    A great laundry addition

    Finally got around to trying these, after recommendation by a friend (who uses them exclusively). I was surprised how well they performed, they were just as effective as regular powders. They didn't get the smell out of some of my husband's shirts, but neither do the full-on chemical powders. Same with kids' stains. A bit more fiddly of course, but once you're in the habit it's not hard. I will be continuing to use them as much as I can.

    Compostable at end of life

    I like that these are compostable at the end of their life but I'm not convinced they clean the best. Good for light loads of washing.
