Not sure where to start with your non-tox journey? Start with these!

These powerful organic soapberries are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree. This dried shell is full of a substance called 'Saponins' which are a natural soap. They are naturally antibacterial, anti fungal and hypoallergenic.

When the Soapberries are agitated they release a natural soapy foam which is what cleans your washing effectively to remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.

These are an extremely cost effective, natural and waste free alternative to your commercial laundry powders.

A 500g bag will provide you with over 180 loads, a 1 kg will provide you with 365 loads.

Completely chemical free, grey water safe, septic safe and fully compostable.

They can be used as laundry detergent, shampoo, hand wash, household cleaner, body wash and have many more uses!

An environmentally friendly switch you can make today.

How to use

Place 5 - 6 soapberries in the small cotton bag which comes with your purchase. Place the bag inside the drum of your washing machine WITH you clothes. You can use this bag of berries to do about five loads of washing.

They work fine in cold water but warm water draws more soap out of the berries, so turn up the temperature on your machine if you have a particularly dirty load. Once the cycle has finished be sure to remove the wet bag of berries from the machine.

Do not leave the bag in direct contact with fabrics (particularly light colours) for a prolonged period of time. Once the berries have expired they will lose their structure and feel broken and brittle (like dried leaves). You can then throw them in you compost or on your garden to break down naturally. 

Add some drops of your favourite essential oils if you wish.

For household use, boil the shells for fifteen minutes and use the liquid to clean.
