Soap Berries are naturally soapy berries that can be used as an alternative to detergent.
Also called “Soap Nuts” — they are the sun-dried fruit of Sapindus Trifoliatus trees in south eastern India.
Soap berries shells contain saponin (a natural detergent) and when they come in contact with water they make mild suds. Soap berries could prove more economical than your regular powder — two pounds of Soap Nut shells is enough for around 100 washes. Fabric softener is not needed.
Soap berries are effective cleaners and they have virtually no odor — they have a slight scent of apple cider.
Soap nuts will replace everything that manufactured washing detergents do — for example they do not whiten clothes.
