Soap Nuts - 250g


MiEco Soap Nuts are natures soap alternative that actually grow on trees! The soap nut comes from the Soap Nut Tree (Sapindus mukorossi). The trees produce the small black nut (Or Berry), approximately 2-2.5 cm in diameter, that are deseeded and the shell is dried prior to use.

The shells used for detergent contain something called saponin, which works as a natural surfactant. Surfactants reduce the surface tension of the water, essentially making it wetter and easier to penetrate into soiled fabrics. This combined with the agitation of your machine or hand washing removes the dirt or particles, then keeps them away from your clothing until rinsing occurs.

Soap Nuts are naturally odorless, hypoallergenic and do not damage fabrics.

Most commercial detergents contain chemical surfactants. Some of which (such as 1,2-Dioxane) have been shown to be carcinogenic and volatile. But soap nuts are all-natural and have been used for centuries around the world.

Simply place a few of these amazing soap nuts into our small Wash bag and throw them in with your washing. They will leave your laundry clean and fresh for around 6 washes, no need for any other cleansers or fabric softeners.
