Soap Nuts


Soap nuts (aka soapberries, with the technical name sapindus) are a 100% natural option for cleaning laundry. Soap nuts are dried berries that contain saponin, a natural detergent. The shells absorb water and releases these saponins which circulate as a natural surfactant (soap) in the washing water, freeing dirt and, oils from clothing. Each berry/nut can be used 3 to 5 times, after which they can be safely disposed of in your own garden.
