Living Naturally Soapnuts are the only organic detergent that grows on trees! It simply doesn't get greener than this! Soapnuts are the shells of dried soapberry fruits that contain real natural soap so are completely free from synthetics and toxic ingredients.  They are highly valued by the rural people of India for washing clothes and as a naturally produced shampoo for washing their hair and for getting rid of dandruff. This is why some botanists have named the species as Sapindus detergents. Soapnuts are highly-effective and gentle at the same time. It will leave your laundry fresh and clean and compared to other powder detergents, its mildness will keep colours bright, maintaining the fabric structure of your clothes for longer periods. It can be used on all fabrics and at all temperatures from 30°C-90°C. It's suitable for all washing machines especially energy-efficient ones, and is known to be a great relief for all allergy sufferers. Using Living Naturally Soapnut Shells as a washing detergent and/or multi-purpose cleaner will help reduce exposure to toxins and harmful chemicals, so will hopefully reduce symptoms. Inside the bag there will be a mixed of whole and broken shells. This does not affect the efficacy of the soapnuts. There also may be variations of colours due to the time the soapnuts were harvested, which also doesn't affect their efficacy. Fresh shells look like satin varnish, and progressively after approx 5 washes the inside of the nuts become matt beige or grey and the surface becomes darker. We suggest composting the shells or putting them in the green recycling bin. You can also blitz them up in a blender and create more foam and pour this on your garden crops to stop slugs and snails. Comes in a cotton drawstring bag with a small biodegradable muslin bag inside to use in the washing machine. Full instruction leaflet on how to use for laundry and how to make natural pesticide and a chemical free multi-purpose cleaner is included.
