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.

Amazing!

I love these soapberries! I was really skeptical about these when I first got them, and they sat in the cupboard for a while until I'd run out of the old powder. But these are amazing! I soaked my soapberries in their little baggie in hot water (as advised on their website) before putting in the washing machine - they worked so well! The clothes felt and smelt lovely and clean and were so soft after line-drying. I will definitely keep using these!

Work well

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.

So far, so good

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.

Good at cleaning but not removing stains

Great to clean clothes however not so great in removing stains such as oil and tomato sauce. I will certainly buy these again as I think they are probably the the most economical and best natural clothes cleaning product on the market.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Plastic free laundry detergent was one of the last things on my list so I was so excited when I found this product! As far as I can tell so far it works just as well as any other detergent! The salesperson at the store in Brisbane suggested adding a couple of drops of essential oils which I will try but isn't necessary to great, clean laundry
