Doing Laundry

Put 6 - 8 Soapnuts to a small cotton bag (or an old cotton sock), tie the end and place it inside the drum of the washing machine together with your clothes. Wash as per normal.

For hand washing, you can make a tea with 8 soapnuts and wash as usual.

Soapnuts produce low suds and are suitable for use in both front and top loading machines.

Dishwasher use

Place 5-6 soapnuts into the washbag and secure to the cutlery holder. You may add vinegar to the rinse aid dispenser for sparkling clean glasses.

How to make Soapnut Liquid

Put 15-20 pieces of soapnuts shell in around 4-5 cups of water and let it soak for 12 hours. Then strain and use. Soapnut shell can be reused until it no longer has a "soapy" feel to it. The longer the soapnuts sit in the water, the more concentrated the liquid becomes.

Alternatively, bring to boil the 15-20 pieces of soapnuts shell in 4-5 cups of water, and simmer for 30 minutes. Cool and strain liquid into a bottle. These soapnuts cannot be reused again.

 

Note:

This soapnut liquid can also be used for washing and cleaning a wide range of items.  As this very pure soapnut solution has no preservatives of any kind, it has only a very limited shelf life for only a few short days. To extend its shelf life, it would be best to keep it refrigerated (some people freeze it into ice cubes and use as needed). 

 

Also known as Soapnuts/Soapberries in the West, Ritha by the Indians and Lerak by the Indonesians, these are actually small berries that grow on soapnut trees which can be found in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Indonesia. Once the berries have ripened, they are gathered by hand, sun -dried and have their seeds taken out.

The scientific name for soapnuts is Sapindus Trifoliatus or Sapindus Mukorossi (depending on where it is grown). Soapnuts contain saponin, a natural cleaning agent which is released when the soapnuts are wet. It is the saponin that has the ability to wash and clean a wide range of items from laundry to the dishes. Saponin can effectively replace chemical detergents and commercial soaps that are currently found in today's markets.

For centuries, traditional societies have been using soapnuts to wash almost everything from hair to clothes and even to polish precious metals. Soapnuts are among the list of herbs and minerals in Ayurveda. They are a popular ingredient in Ayurvedic shampoos and cleansers. They are used in Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for eczema, psoriasis, and for removing freckles. Soapnuts have gentle insecticidal properties and are traditionally used for removing lice from the scalp.

Using soapnuts to wash and clean is simply a wonderful way to maintain an eco-friendly and green lifestyle, but more importantly to reduce the use of harsh chemical agents which can harm our environment. Now we can wash and clean all we want without harming Mother Nature.
