Product Description

That Red House Organic Soapberries, are a natural alternative to laundry detergent.

Soapberries are the natural alternative to traditional laundry detergents and fabric softeners. They are often called 'soapnuts', but they are not nuts at all. They are in fact a fruit!

Soapberries are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, which grows in several different regions around the world, but is most prevalent in the Himalayas. The shell of the fruit is then collected, dried and packed for use. The shell is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap. This saponin content reduces the surface tension of the water so it will remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.

That Red House Soapberries are harvested from wild trees in the pristine Himalayan mountains of  Nepal, by small local communities. By purchasing this product, you are supporting the 'Grow Nepal' initiative which creates a future for the Nepalese people, and encourages sustainable practices across the planet.

  1. Simply add 5 whole shells (or equivalent) to the provided wash bag, and throw it in the machine... its that simple!
  2. Each set of shells will do approx 5 wash loads, depending on water temperature and wash cycle, etc.
  3. You can make a potent multi-purpose liquid by boiling the berries for 15 mins, and use the liquid for anything from a shampoo to a cleaner. 

After approximately 5 washes the soap berries can be added to the compost or garden to break down naturally.
