Soapnut Wash Nuts
These incredible little things are called soap nuts.
Soap nuts (also known as soapberries) have been used for thousands of years as a natural washing detergent by people native to both Asia and the Americas.
Soap nuts grow on trees of the sapindus genus, and contain saponins which are a natural surfactant. They can be used for cleaning clothes, washing our bodies and even work in the garden as a natural insecticide!
Soap nuts are gentle on your clothes, colours stay brighter for longer, whilst effectively removing dirt.
