The ultimate earth-friendly laundry detergent.
Soapnuts have been used for everything from removing lice to silver polish. They are actually helpful for sewer systems, and can be reused for several laundry loads.
The pouch is made from recycled tea towels (colors vary) and can be tossed in with a load of laundry and dried out to wait for the next washing. Soapnuts have no smell so you can add your own favorite essential oil such as rosemary, musk or amber.
More uses of soapnuts are discussed here.
This is a very important item we should all be using for the health of the earth.
Each pouch includes 20 soapnuts which can be used for about 25 loads of laundry.
I’ve used this before (ordered from India) before the organic stores here started catching up on this. Singaporeans prefer it in powdered form although I prefer the whole nuts – fun to “see” the nuts shrinking as days go by cos I do the laundry twice a week!
The smell is also pleasant. Way better than chemical detergents!
