'That Red House' certified organic Soapberries are the natural alternative to traditional fabric softeners and laundry detergents. Can also be used as a concentrated all purpose liquid soap. Harvested from the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, the shell contains high levels of 'saponin' that create suds in your machine. 1kg = approx. 365 wash loads.

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 nuts can be composted at the end of use.
  • The shell is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap. This saponin content reduces the surface tension of the water so it will remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.

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:

  • Money saving. Soap berries 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.
  • 365+ washing loads!
  • USDA and ECO CERT certified organic.
  • Hypo-allergenic. Perfect for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
  • Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and odorless.
  • Packaged in reusable draw string bag with small wash bag.
  • Not tested on animals.
  • Safe for babies and children.

Useless!

I bought these soapberries based on the great reviews. I am on tank water so they seemed like a great alternative to other eco products in plastic. After about a month of use, all my clothes started to smell musty and stale, despite being thoroughly dried in the sun each time they were washed. There is no "pleasant smell" to the load after use and I cannot see that they have any stain removing power at all. I feel silly for believing that 5 little berry shells would clean an entire load of laundry. I made the liquid soap recipe hoping for an additional use of this product and it went mouldy within a week. I seriously question the claims of antibacterial properties. Disappointing product.

Great natural alternative

I have used these for a while now. My husband is not a fan, he thinks his clothes smell more. I haven't had issues.

Good for light cleaning

Happy with the product, would suggest soaking for heavier soiling though. But fine for general laundry that isn't super dirty. Large pack is lasting a long time too

Great product and packaging

Love these natural laundry wonders. Would recommend soaking heavier stained items first though.

Great laundry detergent for sensitive skin

I developed an allergy to general laundry powders and liquid some years ago and was looking for an alternative. Soap berries work very well for me, and work out much more economically than the previous laundry powders I used. There isn't any scent/perfumes, no added chemicals; just clean clothes. I also make soap berry concentrate to make a multi-purpose cleaner which is a nice, gentle and chemical-free way of cleaning my home with my own allergies (and also having pets). Will continue to buy. Thanks.
