Soap Nuts

Soap Nuts are small berry like fruits that have been used for centuries in their native lands of India, Nepal, and other South Asian regions. The main ingredient in soap nuts is saponin, an excellent cleaning source that can be used to clean almost everything ranging from your clothes to your teeth!

Laundry Detergent: Boil 10-12 soap nuts in 6 cups of water for 30 minutes. This is the result. I have used it as laundry detergent. Add 3 tbls. of soap nut liquid to each load. Put the liquid in a jar with an air tight lid as there are no preservatives.

All-Purpose Cleaner: Put some of the soap nut liquid into a spray bottle and clean counter tops, floors, and sinks. I was surprised how great it works! Visit buysoapnuts.com for more info and recipes.
