HOW TO USE:
There will be five soap nuts in the muslin bags. Tie it closed, and throw it into the drum of your washing machine along with your dirty laundry. Use warm or hot water for the best result. Cold water washes work best with soap nuts laundry liquid. You can reuse the bag of soap nuts for 4 or 5 loads of laundry. The soap nuts will be gray and dull when they need to be composted for your garden. Alternatively, you can use 1/3 cup of your own brewed soap nuts liquid detergent per load of laundry.
Soap nuts are perfect for HE and front load washers as they do not create many suds! Just remember to put the bag of soap nuts in the drum of the machine. Soap nuts liquid can go in the detergent drawer.
In India, Nepal, and other South Asian countries, a tree called sapindus mukorrosi grows small fruits surrounded by a firm outer shell. This tree is unique because it produces its own natural saponins, a soap-like product, that coats the shell of the fruit. When the fruits ripen and fall from the tree, local families harvest it, then remove the fruit from the seed. The soap nut shell is then dried out in the sun, using absolutely no chemical processing or manufacturing processes. The soap nut shell absorbs water and releases saponins which circulate as a natural surfactant in the wash water, reducing the surface tension of the water and freeing dirt, grime and oils from the clothing. They act just as commercial laundry detergents, but without the chemicals. When the clothes are rinsed, the soapnut saponins are washed downstream where they remain harmless to the environment. No synthetic chemicals, no fragrance chemicals, no foaming agents or other toxins. Just shells grown by nature. Soap nuts are an excellent choice for people who desire to use environmentally friendly products. They are a pure product, and contain no added chemicals, fragrances, dyes or fillers. They are also wonderful for people with skin allergies, eczema, or sensitivities to commercial detergents.
