Soap Nuts are berries that produce soap naturally. When added with water, the Soap Nut's skin will release a soaping component called the saponin, which is what produces the cleaning, lathering action. Our Soap Nuts are of the species Sapindus Mukorossi; they are organically grown in India and de-seeded by local woman at fair wage. Adopt a refreshing, chemical free and environmentally friendly way to do your daily dishes, your weekly laundry, clean your kitchen, wash you or your kid's water bottle and wash your hair! It can be easily added to your existing product line. Our certified organic Soap Nuts originates from India's soapberry trees. These organic nuts are pesticide and chemical free; always safe to use for you and your family.
Put 3-4 Soap Nuts into the cotton muslin pouch. Scrub the pouch on itself like you would if you were washing out a piece of cloth. You will begin to see foam bubbles. Use the pouch as a soap filled-scrub on your dishes.
Put 4-5 Soap Nuts into the cotton muslin pouch. Place the soap nut-filled pouch into the washing machine along with your clothes. Close the lid, and run your usual cycle. Each pouch of soap nuts can last 4-6 loads!
Find a garden sprayer bottle. Mix 8 oz. of white vinegar with 3-4 Soapnuts. Shake vigorously for about 1 minute; you should see soap bubbles foaming in the mixture. Spray and wipe clean your kitchen surfaces with the mixture to disinfect and degrease. You can also scent the mixture with essential oil or leftover soap shavings for a naturally aromatic kitchen.
This is an Indian recipe to make hair nice and shiny. First, mix the Soapnuts with water in a 1 to 1 ratio. (e.g. 1 cup of nuts to 1 cup of water) Soak it for 12 hours until the Saponin from the Soapnuts are abundantly released. Drain the mixture and put the liquid in a bottle with cap. Shake the bottle to make a foam, use it as regular shampoo.
When the soap nuts feel soft and look decayed, they have reached their expiration. Simply throw them with your compost and refill the muslin pouch.
