Product Description

Soap nuts are a natural washing detergent that are literally grown on trees. The Soapnut shells contain Saponins which, on contact with water, release mild suds and can be used as a sustainable alternative to laundry detergent in washing machines. The soap nuts have been used as a washing detergent for hundreds of years in India and Nepal. Soap nuts have grown to be a popular alternative to traditional washing detergents as they are better for the environment and can be good for your skin.

More Information

Where do soap nuts come from?

Soap nuts trees can grow up to 15 metres tall and are found mainly in South India. In March and April, the tree is adorned with white flowers, and the ripe soapnuts are harvested in October. When removed from the tree, the soapnuts are sticky and golden in colour. They are dried and their colour becomes reddish-brown. Then the nuts are cracked and the black kernel, which can neither be eaten nor used for washing, is removed and the shells, which contain saponine (a natural detergent), are packed up in cotton bags.

How do Soap Nuts work?

The somewhat sticky saponine in the shells of the soap nuts acts similar to normal soap. As soon as the shells get in contact with water, this natural saponine soap is released and creates mild suds. Place 4 to 5 half shells in one of the provided cotton bags. Tie the bag and place it with your laundry in the washing machine. Start your machine as usual, with or without pre-wash. The remains of the soapnuts can be composted or be disposed of through organic refuse.

The soap nut can be easily used in your washing machine. Unlike common washing powders and liquids that contain considerable amounts of chemicals, soap nuts are good for the environment and gentle on the skin.

Tips with using Soap Nuts:

  • No need for fabric softeners
  • Works well with delicate fabrics such as silk and wool
  • When washing in cold to warm water, soapnuts can be used for a second time the same day
  • In the case of heavy stains, we recommend adding one tablespoon of stain remover.
  • For a fragrant wash add your favourite essential oils

Washing Dosage Guide:

30-40° - use 5 soap nut halves in soft water or 6-7 halves in hard water

1 pack will last for approximately 240 washes

60-95° - use 3 soap nut halves in soft water or 4-5 halves in hard water

1 pack will last for approximately 160 washes

Soap nut water for cold and hand washing:

Put 10-12 half shells in 1 litre of boiling water. Simmer for about 10 minutes, allow to cool and fill into bottles.
