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.

Great alternative

Works well. Love that they can be composted.

I love the idea...

...but not convinced that they work very well. I put some in a cup of water and agitated over several days and the water was not overly soapy. If you use hot water to wsh they will no doubt work better. In any case, it's an OK alternative to chemical detergents, which I am willing to continue to use due to environmental benefits.

Great easy to use

Fantastic and easy to use. I have a front loader and works fine as long as I don’t overload the wash.

recommended

i have only really used the berries for every day wash, nothing too dirty. but i like it and love they can go in the compost when spent. the little bag has a little bit of mold on it i think so i would take care in making sure it does not stay wet after use.

Love!

I was actually so impressed at how these performed. Clothes with stains might need something a bit tougher but for normal loads these are perfect. All natural, plastic free, great for travel and road trips. Definitely worth trying out!
