Soap Nuts are an all-natural, biodegradable and zero waste option that can help up your laundry game! Ditch the plastic laundry containers forever with these handy little berries that are super gentle and ideal for folks who are scent-sensitive or have delicate skin conditions.
Native to India and Nepal, soap nuts have been used for hundreds of years as a chemical-free, all-natural way to clean clothes and fabrics. Soap Nuts are a great laundry alternative for folks with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. And because they are unscented and oh-so gentle, they are also excellent for laundering toddler and baby clothes.

- How It Works
The soap nut, which is actually a berry, forms a hard shell when dried that resembles a nut. The berry shells contain saponin, a natural surfactant that is released when the shell absorbs water. Soap Nuts are generally considered safe for use on septic and greywater systems.
- How to Use
Depending on the size and efficacy of the shells, four to six berries will be enough for a full load. Place the soap nuts in a cotton muslin bag and tie securely shut. There will be little to no bubbles during the wash cycle, but this doesn’t detract from their ability to clean.
Wash water may smell slightly of apple cider vinegar. If fragrance is preferred, organic essential oils can be added to the muslin bag. Soap nuts can be re-used several times before they start to disintegrate. When berries start to looky mushy and grey, simply compost them and wash + reuse your muslin bag with fresh soap nuts!
