People in India and Nepal have been doing their laundry and cleaning with Soap nuts for hundreds of years. Soapnut is the dried fruit of the Ritha tree and the saponin released is a 100% substitute to normal detergents.

SoapNuts can be used for washing clothes, dishes, cloth nappies, as a liquid soap, cleaning and shining ornaments, household cleaner etc. They are highly-effective and gentle and leave your laundry fresh and clean. Suitable on all fabrics at all temperatures. They work in front and top loaders.

Eco criteria

Eco Product selection criteria

When we source our products, we try to find as many environmental benefits as possible. We source eco products that do not cause any unnecessary harm to our environment.
This particular product matches the following critera (click on each to see other products matching the same):

All of our eco criteria explained

Made from recycled materials or is recyclable

Recycling has many benefits like saving energy, conserving raw materials, reducing the amount of stuff that goes to landfills and it's also saving you money. 2.5 Million Tons of waste go to landfills each year (8kg per person/week) 3/4 could be saved by re-using, recycling and composting. Re-duce, Re-use, Re-cycle!

Contain no toxins or harmful ingredients

Many people suffer from allergies, asthma and other sensitivities because of products that contain toxins or otherwise harmful ingredients. Most of these products are used inside the house eg. for cleaning, as body care products, as a detergent and so on. We try to source products that are mostly natural and do not cause any harm to you or your environment.

Be compostable or biodegradable

What is the difference? Compostable materials provide the earth with nutrients once it has completely broken down. Biodegradable materials refer to the ability of breaking down and return to nature. Buying products that are compostable and/or biodegradable will help to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Fairly traded or Fairtrade certified

At the beginning of most production chains are the workers and farmers (producers). Sadly they do not always get a fair share of the benefits of the trade. You as a consumer can now make a conscious decision about buying fairtrade or fairly traded products and putting this right.

Reduce the dependence on oil

Many household items are made of plastic. Because plastic doesn't react chemically with most other substances, it doesn't break down or decay. Therefore, plastic poses a significant environmental problem as it hangs around in the environment for a very long time. We stock many products that use little or no plastic in order to reduce our dependence on oil.

Cruelty free

The testing on animals for cosmetic and consumer products needs to stop. Whether you decide to buy only vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty-free products into your life, it's definitely worth to go animal friendly. The products we source are cruelty-free and do not harm or kill animals in their making.

Was unsure about soap nuts to begin with

I really loved the idea of soap nuts but found it hard to believe they would be any good, especially since I had never heard of them before. But in my efforts to be more environmentally friendly and use natural products I thought I would give them a try. They do an excellent job and my first small box lasted me ages, this is now my second purchase for a bigger box ? I have just one word of warning. Take it out of the machine as soon as your cycle has finished as where they are sitting will mark the nearby items. It doesn’t stain them but it just leaves a muddy mark where the bag has been sitting on the clothing, particularly noticeable on whites. But still highly recommend ?

Perfect for DIY shampoo

I use these to make a shampoo that’s gentle on the hair and doesn’t dry it. It’s easy and does a great job. You can also use them for liquid soap.

They come with a small cotton pouch that you can use if you do put them in your washing machine.

Very eco-friendly packaging, including outer packaging by EcoWarehouse, and fast delivery.

Great product, cleans well and lasts for ages

We purchased a box of these around 8 months ago and they have cleaned well and lasted a long time! Definitely worth buying a fragrance oil too as there is no smell with the soap nuts.

Brilliant

These are great for all your general laundry requirements. Keeps your items clean and fresh without all the nasties, and then they just go straight into the compost once done.
