Our Organic Sustainable Laundry Soap Nuts are the perfect laundry detergent and fabric softener all in a nutshell. They are freshly packed into 1 lb. bags so you can order multiple bags for your family and friends. Soap nuts are 100% Biodegradable and Compostable which means their not only safe for you & your clothes, but they also won't contribute to the pollution of our environment. Soapnuts work in most any washing machine including both front-loading and top-loading washers and work perfectly in high efficiency (HE) washers with low sudsing. They cost less than half as much as toxic petroleum based detergents.
Fruit From Trees, NOT Chemicals From a Factory
That's right, just toss them into your compost when your done using! Soapnuts are Fragrance Free and work wonders for whites, colors, and even delicates. They are the perfect solution for people with allergies or sensitive skin especially for baby clothes and diapers. Soapberries have the highest saponin content out of all plants which makes it the absolute best natural cleanser on the planet. Our soap nuts come deseeded and ready to use. The seed does not contain any saponin, the natural soap ingredient, so it is not needed at all unless you wish to grow your own soap nut trees which take about 9 years to produce any fruit. The seed just makes the nut heavier so whole soap nuts can weigh as much as double as one that has been deseeded. This is why whole soapnuts are more expensive by weight, but your only using half the nut.

Soapnuts have been used for thousands of years as a chemical-free cleaner for practically everything from clothing to kitchens and pets to people. It's truly amazing the power of mother nature to provide everything we need. Once upon a time in ancient years, people would wash their laundry in streams without anything, but their own two hands. In this light, streams are the beginning of washing and today even though we have mostly drifted away from using streams to do our laundry directly, it's still in the aftermath of what leaves our homes that will eventually end up in a nearby stream. It's this disconnect that leads many people to think things just disappear as we're not actually conscience of doing our laundry in a stream, but this is what provides a greater understanding of the forms of life the stream and it's ecosystem support, including yours.

Once the nuts come in contact with water, the active ingredient, Saponin, is immediately released. Saponin is an all-natural surfactant which lowers the surface tension between your laundry and the wash water then bonding itself to the fibers of your laundry, literally lifting and removing stains, dirt, grease, and grime while simultaneously eliminating any odors and naturally softening your clothes.
