How to use soapnuts in your laundry: So how does it work? You pop a few shells in a washbag, put it in the drum with your clothes and wash as normal. The soap nut shells release saponin (soap) when it comes in contact with water. The saponins then circulate as a natural surfactant (surface active ingredient / detergent). They break down the surface tension of the water and oil in the wash reducing the surface tension of the water aiding it in freeing dirt, grime and oils from clothes. Essentially this is how chemical detergents clean our clothes...but now you can do it without chemicals!

Recipe liquid

  1. 1. Soap Nuts are the purest form of natural organic laundry soap, detergent and cleaner available on the planet…
  2. 2. Soapnuts are the fruit grown on the Sapindus Mukorossi tree in the Himalayas. The nuts are collected by trained local people who live near those areas. The shells are then dried and cleaned, the seeds are removed and we are left with the soapnut shells.
  3. 3. They work just like normal detergent does, except without the harmful chemicals!! The shells contain a natural cleaner called saponin (soap), which dissolves in water, forms suds and dissolves fats and oils to help lift grime. Soapnuts are also naturally low-sudsing which makes them great for all washing machines including energy efficient machines.
