Soapnuts will be sent in a sturdy , double string muslin bag which can be used for your washer soapnuts or as a bag to make Soapnut liquid.

Are soap nuts good for pets?
Absolutely! Many people use soapnut liquids for bathing their pets. The odor reducing properties of the soap nut makes for a remarkably effective pet shampoo. It will also deter fleas and other pests. Wash their bedding in soap nuts and avoid chemicals for your "best friends".
I cannot recommend them more highly. Animals are exposed to an extraordinarily large number of horrible synthetic chemicals – and they are no more biologically immune to these chemicals than we are.
If you own horses I strongly recommend making a liquid. Not only will their coats become absolutely gorgeous, but also it will deter the flies. Soapnuts are an absolute must for my equestrian friends.
Soapnuts are 100% natural and contain no chemical additives, which make them a great choice for pets with sensitive skin. They work because their shell contains a substance called "saponins" which when added to water reacts like soap. The outer shell of the soap nut gives up a soapy substance (Saponin) when it comes into contact with water. The inner seed is hard and black and contains no saponin. Therefore we remove those for you to save shipping costs due to unusable weight. You will find them cheaper, saving at least 50% compared to normal detergent.
Once you are finished with the nuts add them to your compost.

High quality soap nuts of the Mukorossi variety that grow primarily in the northern region of India and Nepal. The Mukorossi tree tends to produce fruits of consistently high saponin content. Many people, especially is the U.S., are not familiar with this amazing gift of nature. We are a country that has been bred to rely upon laboratory solutions. We have been slow to learn of the many ways we can live chemical free. This is in part because we were not fully aware of the potential harms and our options were limited. Not anymore.
