Soap Nuts: Established in 2007, we offer soap nuts and other products that will help you maintain a chemical-free home. We discovered soap nuts while searching for the best detergent to wash our child’s cloth diapers. We spread the word about soap nuts through our local farmer’s market, and eventually created a store online. We have expanded to include the cleaning products and tea tree oil, and are always open to suggestions on other products to carry.
Greener Living Organic Soap Nuts – 500g (1.1lbs): 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.
This is a really neat idea for cleaning or for washing clothes in. This is a multi cleaning option. Dishes, Laundry and even Glass. I used mine on dishes and laundry. Its pretty neat concept. The Glass cleaner, and Dish soap cleaner takes a little more effort then laundry soap one does. The laundry soap you throw some nuts in a little bag and wala into the washer machine. I thought these were soap nuts, tell I got it and its berrys that are turned into soap. This is pretty cool if you ask me! My boys play with this music toy that uses these berrys. They are very loud. Who new they could be turned into a soap! OMG I can’t get enough of saying soap nuts. They also ship really fast, they have very nice customer service, and packaged very well in the mail. So stop by, buy some soap nuts and treat your house and clothes to some really awesome nuts!
