The great natural washing detergent. 1kg of Soapberries can clean 365 washloads!!!They contain a great amount saponins, natures foamy soapy detergent.
Put 5 berries in the cotton wash bag provided and double tie the top. If you like fragrance, add 4-5 drops of 100% Essential Oil and pop it in the wash.
Handy hint - Use warm or hot water becuase the saponins in the soapberries are released more effectively in hot water. For a faster release, use a warm wash setting, or soak your small bag of soapberries in hot water for 5 minutes, before throwing them in the washing machine to do their job!
But soap berries are not only for the laundry, if you feel like getting your DIY on, they can use them as the base for all sorts of household cleaners but even for natural body wash and lathery shaving cream.
