Grown on trees, Soap Nuts is a fruit (berry to be exact) that contains natural surfactant (Saponin) that works to remove dirt. When this dried fruit comes in contact with water, it releases natural surfactant that creates mild suds that washes your clothes and cleanses your household. Since centuries ago, people around the world have been using Soap Nuts for their laundry, household cleaning, and even for personal body care and hair wash. And today, it is widely recognized as an Eco-friendly alternative to synthetic detergent.


How To Use Soap Nuts For Laundry

There are 2 methods. The first method is to make Soap Nut Liquid and use it as if you would a detergent. The second method is to add Soap Nuts directly into the washing machine together with your clothes.


Method 1: Preparing Soap Nut Liquid

  1. In a 1 litre bottle, put in 15 whole Soap Nuts. Fill the bottle with room temperature water and let it soak overnight or soak for 8 hours. If you need it fast, boil it for 30 mins and let cool.
  2. Remove the Soap Nuts and store the Soap Nut Liquid in the bottle for use. It can keep up to 1 week and used for 5 loads of laundry. Minimize air exposure for longer shelf life.
  3. Note: You can air-dry the Soap Nuts and add them to your next batch of Soap Nut Liquid preparation if you like. Top up with new shells. After use, you can add these used Soap Nuts to your compost.


Using Soap Nut Liquid With Washing Machine

  1. For an average load of laundry (5-7kg), pour 200ml of Soap Nut Liquid into the detergent compartment of your washing machine or pour directly onto your clothes. And start your wash cycle. Fabric softener is not required.
  2. Note: For dirtier clothings, add more Soap Nut Liquid. For stubborn stains, pre-treat your clothes with soap bar, liquid soap or washing soda.


Method 2: Adding Soap Nuts Directly Into Your Washing Machine

  1. Put 6 to 8 whole Soap Nuts into a small cotton bag.
  2. Soak it in a bowl of hot water for at least 15 mins.
  3. Toss the bowl of liquid and Soap Nuts into your washing machine together with your clothes and start the wash cycle.
  4. Remove Soap Nuts during the rinse cycle.
  5. Air-dry your Soap Nuts and reuse for your next 1 batch of laundry. Top up with new shells if desired. After use, you can add them to your compost.
  6. Things To Note: Do not overload your washer with too much clothes. Allow space for the Soap Nuts to interact with water to release the saponin. Add more Soap Nuts or reduce the load of clothes if they are dirtier than usual. For stubborn stains, pre-treat your clothes with a stain remover. Regular soap bar, liquid castile soap or Washing Soda works well in removing stains.

    I love using soap nuts. Ever since switching to these natural detergents, we’ve had no problems with itchy skin and my hubby’s hives have calmed down. What’s more, there is less packaging to worry out. I give them a 5 out of 5 🙂
