About Soap Nuts

Soap Nut - Shell of a Soap Nut

What are Soap Nuts for?

Soap Nuts are used as a natural cleaning detergent to clean clothing and linen. Soap Nuts contain saponin, a natural occurring substance in vegetables and herbs.

Saponins are made up of aglycones (triterpene or steroidal) and sugars (pentose, hexose and or uronic acid. Saponin is then agitated in aqua thus resulting a froth effect. It is an ancient tradition used in India and Asia since generation as an effective and gentle cleanser.

Do your part in saving the environment, use soap nuts, which are biodegradable, will effectively clean your clothes, as well as provide a natural softener. That's right you do not need a fabric softener! I promise your body will feel the difference. No chemicals involved, no irritation, no costly detergents, and no allergic reactions!

Product Information

  • Soap nuts will last longer using warm vs. hot water. Soft water may require less soap nuts. Very hard water may require a bag of 5 - 6 soap nuts (a little more than 1/2 ounce).
  • No need for fabric softener. Your laundry will be soft.
  • Soap nuts have a light vinegar-like smell when dry and a stronger scent when wet, but amazingly your laundry will smell completely clean & fresh after using soap nuts. They leave no scent whatsoever.
  • If you prefer a scent, you can add approximately 10 drops of your essential oil of choice on the cotton bag before tossing it into the machine, or on a cloth in the dryer.
  • Soap nuts do not remove heavy or very greasy stains. As with any detergent, pre-treat tough stains with a stain remover.
  • If clothes are very dirty, do smaller loads. Soap nuts will work better with the greater agitation of a less than packed load.
  • If you like super whites, you can add oxygen bleach to the load.
  • There will be very little suds. Less suds actually means no commercial foaming agents or chemicals have been added.
  • Soap nuts are absolutely wonderful for washing cloth diapers Unlike chemical detergents, they do not clog the fabric fibers causing the diaper to loose its absorbency.
  • Soapnuts will clean and remove the detergent residue and odors from diapers, sheets, towels and clothes.
