What are soap nuts?
Simply dried fruit shells from India that are completely free from synthetic and toxic ingredients.
How to use?
Soap nuts come with a small wash bag. Just place about 8 shells in the bag and add to the washing machine or you can make your own laundry liquid by boiling 15 shells in 2 litres of water for 10 minutes. Once cool the liquid can be stored in the fridge and used in your washing machine drawer for loads that are more heavily soiled. Soap nuts are fragrance free but you can add a few drops of essential oils to add fragrance if preferred.
Disposing of soap nuts
After three or four washes the shells can composted or thrown on to the garden as they help to fertilise soil and keep away snails and slugs.
In Store we have a wide range of household essentials. Customers can refill containers with liquid cleaning fluids from toilet cleaner to surface sanitiser and washing up liquid. Also check out the Ecoleaf dishwasher tabs with a water soluble coating to cut out the plastic wrapping you usually find inside the box.
We also stock ‘ingredients’ to make your own cleaning products such as bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar.
