What Are Soapnuts?

Soapnuts are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi, a tree found primarily in India and Nepal. The shell contains saponin, which is known for its ability to cleanse and wash. Although they are just starting to become popular in the Americas and Europe, Soapnuts have been used by many peoples for centuries and go by many common and not so common names including; soaputs, soap nuts, soapnut, soap nut, soapberries, soap berries, soapberry, soap berry, washnuts, wash nuts, washnut, wash nut, soap pods, Ritha, Reetha, Aritha, Dodan, Doadni, Doda, Kanma, Thali and noix de lavage
The most common use of Soapnuts is to remove dirt from clothing. It's not only highly effective but also very gentle and safe to use on even your most delicate articles of clothing including cashmere, wool and silk. Because it is mild and natural, it preserves the colors and the structure of your clothing longer than chemical detergents. It actually softens your clothing naturally to, so you will no longer need to use fabric softener: The laundry turns out amazingly soft! Because of these characteristics, soapnuts are the perfect detergent.

Soapnuts are completely natural. Take a look at the label on your current laundry detergent. Find anything like:

* anionic and nonionic surfactants
* buffering agents
* perfumes
* "quality control" agents

This list can be translated to: chemicals, allergens, and pollutants. Soapnuts, on the other hand, contain no man-made ingredients and are 100% all natural making them great for people with allergies and skin conditions.

Using soapnuts is easy, just place 3-6 shell halves in a cotton / muslin sack (muslin sack provided with every order from Nine Lucky Stars) or and old sock tied off works just as well. Then drop it in your washing machine with your dirty clothing. Just remember to remove it before drying. Thats it! Your clothes will turn out clean and fresh. If you prefer clean clothing with a nice scent you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil such as lavender or lemon. You can apply the drops (2-5 does the trick) directly to the soapnut sack before dropping it in the washing machine. You can use that same soapnuts for up to 3-4 loads and you can reuse the sack over and over. Soapnuts are all-natural, and are therefore healthier for you, your clothes and the environment. They are a great addition to any home that likes to be "green". Once all the soap has been used up out of the soapnut shells you can compost them!
Soapnut usage doesn't stop at your washing machine either! You can replace just about every other liquid cleaner and soap with soapnuts! Soapnuts can be made in to a liquid commonly referred to as soapnut liquid or soapnut juice. This liquid can be used as hand soap, shampoo, spray cleaner, glass cleaner, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, car wash, pet shampoo, insect repellant on plants and just about anything else you can imagine using liquid soap and liquid cleaners for. More information on how to make and use soapnut liquid is available at the provided websites above and will also be emailed to you when your order is shipped.
