Soap Nut Solutions

Leave a comment

New in to our shop today are three fabulous, brand new Soap Nut products.

Now I mostly use soap nuts to do my laundry and usually put 5 or so nuts in a little bag or old pop-sock and pop it in the machine along with the dirty clothes.  I have made soap nut liquid detergent – which actually makes them last even longer – by boiling up 50g of soap nuts with about 1L of water and then letting it simmer for 20 mins.  You strain off the solution and put it in a bottle.  Then I use it as any other laundry detergent.

The soap nut formula is very gentle for hands and is infused with Aloe Vera and anti-bacterial essential oils to keep your skin soft and protected.  Only 100% natural plant and mineral based ingredients.  It is also considered by current users not to inflame eczema which is great news.
