LaundryTree SoapNuts are an easy way to "green" your laundry!
Soapnuts aren't actually a nut at all, they are simply the fruit of a tree (Sapindus Mukorossi), found primarily in the Himilayas. And they are an EXCELLENT alternative to traditional laundry detergents and cleaners.
A few amazing things about soap nuts:
They are simply a dried fruit -- 100% totally natural.
Clothes washed with soapnuts will have no scent -- and that's how you'll know they are TRULY clean!
They are organically grown and are free of harsh chemicals, so they are incredibly gentle. (This makes them especially great for those with sensitive skin — including babies and those that suffer from allergies, eczema, and psoriasis).
They’re totally biodegradeable, so they’re better for the environment than regular detergent.
How do soapnuts work?
The outer shell of the soapnut contains saponin, a natural substance known for its ability to cleanse and wash. (That’s what makes them so GREAT for cleaning your laundry!) And here’s a cool fact: soapnuts aren’t a new concept; they have been used to clean all kinds of fabric for centuries, and are only now gaining popularity in the Americas and Europe as a powerful, yet natural alternative to modern detergents. Having used any number of other detergents, we’re here to say so far man has yet to best Mother Nature in coming up with a genius cleaning agent for clothes.
How are soapnuts prepared for use in your wash?
They are simply harvested, de-seeded, and then dried in the sun. And they WORK — they really, really work!
