Green Cleaning For Your Home, Laundry, You & Your Pets:The Scoop On Soap Nuts
Soap Nuts (also referred to as soap berries) are the fruit grown on the Sapindus Mukorossi tree. The shells contain a natural cleaning agent called saponin, usually present in quantities of around 10-15% saponin which dissolves in water to form suds and can dissolve fats and oils and help to lift grime. This is what normal detergent does, except now you can do it without the harmful chemicals.
Soapnuts are naturally low-sudsing which makes this a perfect natural laundry detergent alternative for all washing machines including energy efficient machines. LIVING NATURALLY SOAPNUT SHELLS are the most natural product available and can be used as a multipurpose cleaner and body wash as well!
