Laundry Soap Berries - Kit
Soapberries, also called soapnuts, are actually a small fruit. They are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree which is found naturally growing in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains.
The skin of this fruit contains plant saponin, a totally natural gentle soap that has been used for centuries to clean skin and clothes. Saponin works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water and create a lather that lifts dirt and grease from skin, leaving it suspended in the water that is rinsed away. For laundry, this surfactant action penetrates the fibers of your clothing too, lifting stains from the fabric and washing them away with the water.
We've put together a "first-time" soap berry kit containing complete instructions for use, soap berries that will last for a minimum of 75 loads of laundry, a refillable storage bag, and 100% cotton wash bag.
