Soap Nuts are growing in popularity for their all-natural cleaning power. The funny thing about Soap Nuts is that they are actually berries that develop a hard shell when they dry. They are commonly referred to as Soap or Wash Berries as well. These amazing little berries contain a natural surfactant called saponin. Saponin is one of nature's best dirt and grime removers. High quality Sapindus mukorossi nuts contain a high concentration of this natural cleaner and that's why they have so many wonderful uses around the home.

Natural Laundry Detergent

Most people do not realize how many toxic chemicals are commonly used in name brand laundry detergents. Recent studies show that at least one-third of all scented laundry detergents contain at least one chemical that has been flagged by the EPA as potentially hazardous to our health and the average laundry detergent emits 17 toxins that are not listed on the label. Many people wonder how this is even possible. How can a product in the United States emit a toxin that it does not have to list as an ingredient? The answer is that fragrances are considered proprietary and do not have to be disclosed. Once you understand this loophole, you can see how many companies would be able to hide the less desirable ingredients in fragrances.

The good news is that there is a simple solution to toxic laundry detergents. Throw them in the trash and get yourself some high-quality Soap Nuts. You only need to put a few Soap Nuts in a washable bag and put them in the washing machine with your next load of laundry. The all-natural cleaning power will go to work on your clothes and remove stains and odors while leaving them feeling like new.

Soap Nuts Liquid

It's quick and easy to turn your Deseeded Soap Nuts into an all-purpose liquid cleaner. You will need to put about 20 wash berries into a pot and add 6 cups of water. Boil the water with the berries for about 10 minutes. As some of the water starts to boil off, add about 2 more cups and continue to boil for another 10 minutes. Once this process is complete, find a completely sterilized jar to put your soap nuts liquid in. You will need to strain out the nuts and drain the liquid into the jar. Let this jar sit in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks before using it. The liquid will not be effective until it has completely settled.

You will be able to tackle just about any cleaning job once you have Soap Nuts Liquid. It is a fantastic all-purpose cleaner for your floors, kitchen, and bathroom. It's tough enough for sinks, toilets, showers and bathtubs. It's natural so you can clean your floors and bedroom without worrying about any toxic chemical residue left behind for your children or pets. The best uses for soap nuts are only limited by your imagination and you'll be permanently removing a common source of toxic chemicals from your home for good.
