Soap Nuts – Eco friendly and Natural Way to Wash
Say goodbye to nasty chemicals and artificial fragrance in store bought commercial detergents!
Lil’Soap Nuts are harvested from the Sapindus Mukorossi tree which grows mostly in Nepal. The shell of the fruit/nut has a very high concentration of saponin, which is a natural soap!
These soap nuts weigh 250g and come with a small, reusable calico bag. This bag can be used up to 5 times before the nuts can be tossed into the compost heap or garden. The nuts will start to go ‘mushy’ after a lot of washes, so as a recommendation replace after the 5th wash.
Ideally add 4-5 soap nut shells to the bag, pull the drawstring tight and toss in your wash.
A 250g bag contains approx 200 nuts/shells which equates to 40 small bags. At 5 loads per bag that’s 200 washes costing around 10c/wash as opposed to approx 26c for commercial detergents!
After your wash, remove the bag of soap nuts and let them dry, or use them again right away if you are doing another load.
