Soap nuts are the only organic detergent that literally grow on trees! They produce a natural soap called saponin. This is the most natural way to get plastic-free laundry.

Soap nuts have been used for thousands of years and are highly valued by the rural people of India for washing clothes and cleaning.

Soap nuts are highly-effective and gentle at the same time. They will leave your laundry fresh and clean, its mildness will keep colours bright, maintaining fabric structure of your clothes for longer periods. It can be used on all fabrics and at all temperatures from 30. C - 90. C. Great for all washing machines especially energy efficient machines & great for all allergy sufferers.

Inside the bag there will be a mixed of whole and broken shells. This does not affect the efficacy of the soap nuts. There also may be variation of colours due to the time the soap nuts were harvested, which also doesn't affect their efficacy.

How to use:

Soap nuts are easy to use.
1. Place 3-8 soap nuts into the small bag provided and tie tightly.
2. Put your laundry in the machine with the soap nuts on top and wash as normal
3. As they are totally natural, they are unscented. If you wish, you can add some essential oil 
4. At the end of the wash remove the bag of soap nuts and allow to dry. These can be re used several times. I tend to use them 3 or 4 times.


For lightly soiled clothes use 3-5 nuts
For Heavily soiled clothes 6-8 nuts
For hard water areas you may need to use 8 nuts
