Soapberries are a natural alternative to traditional laundry detergent and fabric softener.
'That Red House' soapberries are they only ones on the market that are 'Certified Organic'.
They are often called 'soapnuts', but they are not nuts at all. They are in fact a fruit!
The shell of the fruit is collected, dried and packed for use. The shell is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap. This saponin reduces the surface tension of the water to remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.
Soapberries are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, which grow in several different regions of the world, but are most prevalent in the Himalayas, which is where ours are harvested by small local communities.
Put 5 berries in the cotton wash bag provided and double tie the top. If you like fragrance, add 4-5 drops of 100% Essential Oil and pop it in the wash.
Each set of shells will do approx 5 wash loads, depending on water temperature and wash cycle, etc.
Soapberries perform well in cold water but if you have a particularly dirty load, turn up the temperature on your machine to draw more soap out of the berries.
