That Red House Soapberries are a popular choice for an earth friendly, budget friendly, hugely multi-purpose natural cleaning product that has so much to offer. Soapberries are also known as soapnuts and used within a cotton wash bag as a hypoallergic, biodegradable compostable cleaning product. They cost around 10c per load to use and are ethically grown in Nepal.
Soapberries are actually the shell of a fruit from a tree growing in Nepal that are high a low sudsing natural soap called Saponin. When using soapberries in your wash you are keeping your household free from harsh chemicals and create a very sustainable, low toxin environment for your whole family and especially those with sensitive skin, babies, children and elderly with fragile skin.
Simply pop 4-6 berries in the bag and place this in the washing machine with your clothing and remove it when the load is finished. It's no matter if you wash in cold, warm or hot water although 40 degrees is the ideal temperature for giving off saponins. You can continue reusing those Soapberries until they become grey and soft at which point they can be composted. You can refer to the image we show where new soapberries are at the left and old, used berries at to the right.
We love that That Red House Soapberries are Australian owned and operated and supporting a certified organic and waste-free laundry detergent and eco-friendly lifestyle. It's also awesome that soapberries are grey water safe and safe for septic tanks as well.
