Soap nuts, or berries, are an organic, all natural way to do your laundry and clean just about everything. Soap Nuts are a popular natural organic alternative. A perfect solution for those with allergies or those who are sensitive to cleansers and detergents! The shells of these nuts naturally produce saponin when introduced with water, creating a bubbly lather that can be used to clean your laundry. Our organic Soap Nuts are deseeded.
Soap Nuts Organic Natural Laundry
Soap nuts are very easy to do your laundry, and they are very cost effective to use. A load of laundry costs about 20 cents, a huge savings on the cost of a brand name commercial laundry detergent.
Use 6 soap nuts at a time. Place them in a tie cloth bag or place them in an old sock and tie the sock. You can reuse the same 6 Soap Nuts to do up to 6 loads of laundry.
Soap Nuts can be used in any type of machine- top loaders, front loaders and High Efficiency (HE) washing machines.
You can use either the Soap Nut shells (which are the skin of the Soap Berry fruit), or you can create a liquid made from Soap Nuts (recipe here). We recommend using the soap nuts shell, as you will use them over and over again. Soap nuts are naturally softening and anti-static. You’ll save even more money on not having to purchase dryer sheets and fabric softeners!
Note: If your laundry is heavily soiled add about a 1/4 – 1/2 cup of baking soda or washing soda to the wash to give some extra washing power.
When the wash is done, separate the Soap Nuts bag from the wash and put your clothes in the dryer, or hang them on the line, and hang up the bag of Soap Nuts up to dry for the next use.
You can reuse the same 6 Soap Nuts to do up to 5 loads of laundry! When you take the soap bag out of the wash, squeeze it a bit and see that it has more bubbles. If it does, the nuts can be used again. Hang your bag for the next use. When the nuts are done, just throw them into the compost and refill with 6 more soap nuts.
You can also use soap nuts for house cleaning, shampoo and bath soap. Click here for the recipes
