That Red House Organic Soapberries
$16.95 – $40.95
Soapberries, also called soapnuts, are actually a small fruit. 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.
Not only used for laundry, Soapberries can be boiled down to a syrup which makes the base for many cleaning products around the home!
Pop 5 berries in the cotton wash bag provided and double tie the top. If you like fragrance, add 4-5 drops of 100% pure Laundry Tonic and chuck it in the wash.
After around 5 loads of washing, the berries can be added to the compost or garden to break down naturally.
