Looking for a way to naturally wash your clothes, dishes and even your hair without relying on chemical-filled products? One great and highly versatile option is soap berries.

Soap berries, also commonly called soap nuts, are the berry-like fruit (related to the lychee fruit) that grows on the Sapindus Mukorrosi tree, native to India and the Himalayas.

They have recently become a popular environmentally friendly alternative to chemical detergent, and are a gentle option for those with allergies to chemicals in regular detergents.
They have traditionally been used as an expectorant, and in Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for eczema and psoriasis.

 

Our Soap Berries 100 percent natural and biodegradable, they contain saponin, which is a natural detergent. The soap nut shell absorbs water and releases the saponins which circulate as a natural surfactant in the wash water, freeing dirt, grime, and oils from clothing.

There are many benefits to using soap berries in your laundry, dishes and shampoo, or to clean surfaces. They are safe and gentle enough for use on sensitive skin, as well as baby clothing. The berries themselves have a pineapple-like fragrance, but when they are used in the wash, they leave no fragrance behind.

 

Ideal Usage:

 

Simply place about 5 soap berry shells into the free wash bag provided and pop that into your washing machine with your next load.

However, If you are washing with cold water, simply soak the entire provided cloth bag containing the berries in a bowl of hot water for a few moments before throwing in the wash.

Add the saponin-filled water from the bowl to the wash, as well. Because the saponin in soap berries is released more effectively at higher temperatures.

 

Soap berries can be used for repeated loads, as long as they still contain some saponin. To test, squeeze them when they are wet, and if you can squeeze out a foamy, or honey-like, liquid, they can be used again. Use new soap berries for full or very stained loads, and reused ones for lighter loads that do not contain as much grime.

 

For dish washing

 

Boiling soap berries for about 10 minutes in water creates a thin liquid that can be used for washing dishes. Use a dozen berries in about a half-liter of water, and add a few drops of lemon essential oil once the liquid is cool, if you wish.
