SoapnutsSoapnuts (Sapindus Mukorossi) are grown in India and Nepal, harvested in a sustainable way in October from 15m high trees. The soapnuts are sticky and golden in colour when removed changing to reddish brown when dried. Soapnut shells contain saponin (a natural detergent) and when they come in contact with water they make mild suds. Soapnuts are a natural, organic, environmentally friendly alternative to soap, detergent and shampoo.
WASHING CLOTHES Hand or machine wash or just soak for fresher softer clothes. Soapnuts are ideal as a natural detergent in the washing machine. Just put 4-8 half shells in the unbleached cotton bag provided. Then pop the bag in the washing machine with your clothes. No need for fabric softener but to add a scent you can add a few drops of you favourite essential oil. Suitable at any temperature, pre-wash or rinse cycles and on delicate fabrics. Shells can be used for more than one wash on the same day, discard any remains when they go dark brown and soggy.
LIQUID SOAP A liquid soap can be made by simmering 50g of soapnuts in 1L of water for 10 minutes. When cool, the mixture can either be strained or put in a blender.
CLEANING JEWELLERY Soapnuts are used as a jewellery polish in India, soak jewellery in soapnut water then rub, rinse and polish.
