  • 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 nuts can be composted at the end of use.

Intructions for use:

  • Place the equivalent of five whole 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.
  • 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:

  • The dried shell of the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap.
  • Money saving. Soapberries 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.

    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.

    Great alternative

    Tried a sample and was really happy so bought a bag. Find with the farm water supply I'm on they don't last as long and don't always get rid of strong odours (I use a little natural scent with them) but still a good alternative to mainstream laundry products, particularly for soaking and for things like towels and sheets.

    Great for clothes washing and amazing as shampoo

    A very cost effective method of clothes washing without the impact on the earth. As a shampoo it works amazingly well. Make sure to massage the roots of your hair for quite some time, otherwise dandruff might become a problem. I soak the rest of my hair in this natural shampoo and it leaves it healthy, shiny and oh so soft!
