Lil’ Bit Better - Laundry Soap Nuts 250g
Soap nuts or soap berries are derived from the fruit of a tree called 'Sapindus Mukorossi'. The tree fruits for 6 months of the year and continues to fruit for 90 years which makes it incredibly sustainable.
The berries naturally contain Saponin which is a surfactant and can be used like soap and hence are used as a natural alternative to laundry detergent. Soap nuts are 100% natural and organic and can be composted after use.
Simply add 4-5 soap nut shells to the reusable laundry bag provided and throw them straight in with your laundry. This same bag of nuts can be used ~5 times before they are composted in your back garden. Dry the shells between washes (or use again immediately if doing multiple loads of laundry).
