Ingredients: 100% Sapindus Mukorossi Pericarp
One cotton wash bag
Completely sustainable, eco friendly and 100% waste free!
If you like fragrance, add 4-5 drops of 100% Essential Oil and pop it in the wash.
To Use: Place 5 – 6 soapberries in the small cotton bag which comes with your purchase. Place the bag inside the drum of your washing machine with you clothes. You can use this bag of berries to do about five loads of washing. They work fine in cold water but warm water draws more soap out of the berries, so turn up the temperature on your machine if you have a particularly dirty load. Once the cycle has finished be sure to remove the wet bag of berries from the machine. Do not leave the bag in direct contact with fabrics (particularly light colours) for a prolonged period of time. Once the berries have expired they will lose their structure and feel broken and brittle (like dried leaves). You can then throw them in you compost or on your garden to break down naturally.
Soapberries are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree. The fruit is picked, the seed removed and the shell dried. This dried shell is full of a substance called ‘Saponins’ which are a natural soap. Saponins reduce the surface tension of water, releasing dirt and grime from fabrics and surfaces. The tree grows in the Himalayan region of the world and the berries are used for many different cleaning applications. They are naturally antibacterial, anti fungal and hypoallergenic.
