Soap Nuts - The Eco-Friendly Detergent That Grows On Trees

Recently, I went to my local market and discovered something very unique. Something that I've never seen or heard of before. They are called Soap Nuts!

As unusual as it sounds, these berries grown from trees are used for our laundry washing. These nuts can replace our normal chemical detergents and can be reused over and over again. Therefore, are eco-friendly and saves us money. 

Soap nuts are:

  • 100% natural and organic
  • 100% biodegradable
  • Anti-microbial
  • Leaves no odours

How it works is that you put 5 nuts in a mini cotton bag and then place it with your laundry. Once these nuts come in contact with water, then it releases a natural soap to wash our clothes. Watch the video below.

Its great to know that you don't need to use chemicals to wash your clothes. Nature always seems to provide a solution to our needs :)
