That Red House Organic Soap Berries
Nature's laundry detergent
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.
This 500g bag will provide you with over 180 loads of super economical, chemical free washing.
Plus, this bag of soapberries comes completely waste free - so your saving tons of plastic from potentially ending up in landfill.
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.
