Soapnut Wash Nuts
We now offer a gift wrapping service. Find out more and add to your order.
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.
Soap nuts are easy to use.
1. Put the required amount of soap nuts into the small bag provided and tie tightly.
2. Place laundry in the machine with the soap nuts on top and run your normal program
3. At the end of the wash remove the bag of soap nuts and allow to dry. These can be re used.
For lightly soiled clothes use 3-5 nuts
For Heavily soiled clothes 4-6 nuts
For hard water areas you should use 7 nuts
Isn’t it frustrating when you buy online and your order arrives packaged in reams of plastic?
That’s not a problem you will ever have if you order from Wastenot!
We are proud to reuse our cardboard and delivery materials (you may occasionally see our supplier logos on the boxes we use) because if it’s still in good shape, why recycle when you can reuse?
You also won’t find any plastic tape holding your order together. All of the tape we use is made of paper too. Made from recycled paper with no harmful chemicals in the adhesive.
Your order will always be delivered by Royal Mail for UK wide orders, and will continue its journey with your local mail carrier for international orders. We don’t believe in putting extra vehicles on the road to deliver parcels, so keep your eye out for the postman.
We are also very proud to partner with Chooose to carbon offset the emissions created by each delivery we make; so you can buy online and still be carbon neutral!
