S O A P N U T S - what are they?
Soapnuts are a macadamia-sized berry which is cracked open and dried in the sun, producing a dark golden 'shell'. These shells (known as 'soapnuts') can be placed into your washing machine instead of detergent and fabric softener, and will leave your clothes clean, soft and without scent.
The pods contain a very high percentage of saponins (Mother Nature's soap), a surfactant which removes dirt and oils from clothing when contacted with water. Soapnuts can also be boiled into a liquid concentrate and used as a general purpose cleaner, shampoo, hand soap... lots of things!
Soapnuts are completely hypoallergenic, (are not likely to agitate or irritate the skin). They are so gentle that they are recommended for use by people with eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.
I always wash on cold, for stubborn stains you do need to line dry in full sun to remove. If washing with delicate whites I recommend using supplied calico bag to wash in, otherwise use the provided netting bag, an old sock etc.
