Soap nuts, one of the most eco friendly washing detergents in the world, no softener needed, 2 tsp of baking powder can be added for white wash.
Soap nuts are found in both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, but are native to India and Nepal, a popular environmentally friendly alternative to chemical detergent, and a gentle option for those with allergies to chemicals in regular detergents. Soap nuts contain saponin, a natural detergent. The soap nut shell absorbs water and releases the saponins which circulate as a natural surfactant in the wash water, freeing dirt, grime, and oils from clothing. Soap nuts can be used completely and then composted for a no-waste solution.
Put a tbsp of Soap Nuts in a muslin bag or old sock and tie it, place it in the machine and wash as usual. After washing, remove the bag and let dry. Dry the clothes as usual. Soap Nuts may be re-used several times until the shells start to become soft and grey, and then they should be composted.
The soap nuts, which are halved to be more effective, originate from India and are carefully controlled in terms of working conditions and environmental considerations.
