90+ washloads. That Red House certified organic Soapberries (also called Soap Nuts) are the natural alternative to traditional fabric softeners and laundry detergents. Can also be used as a concentrated all purpose liquid soap. The dried shell of the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap.  Straight from nature to your home!

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.

Features:

  • 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.

Interesting product

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.

Alternative to nasty powders!

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!

Love them

I add a few drops of tea tree oil for subtle fresh smell on the clothes. Have found they work well for most everyday washes. Not for stain removal, but I don't really want to use anything harsh enough to remove stains in the wash anyway, so I'm not worried about that.

Good job

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.

Better than Expected

Thought I would try these out - and really happy and pleasantly surprised at the cleaning results!
