Living Naturally Soapnuts are the only organic detergent that grows on trees - it simply doesn't get greener than this! Living Naturally Soapnuts or Soapberries are actually dried fruit shells which contain real natural soap and are 100% completely natural. They are excellent value for money - the 500g bag does up to 240 washes and the 1kg bag up to a massive 480! You can also choose smaller options - a 250g paper tube that will wash up to 108 times or try them out first with our sample bag, which will wash up to 10 times and is also handy for travel.
All Living Naturally products are handmade in the UK, from natural, organic, vegan, sustainable, ethical and cruelty-free ingredients.
Soapnuts are highly-effective and gentle at the same time. They will leave your laundry fresh and clean and compared to other powder detergents, and their mildness will keep colours bright, maintaining fabric structure of your clothes for longer periods. They can be used on all fabrics and at all temperatures from 30c to 90c. Great for all washing machines especially energy efficient machines and great for all allergy sufferers.
Inside your pack there will be a mixed of whole and broken shells. This does not affect the efficacy of the soapnuts. There also may be variation of colours due to the time the soapnuts were harvested, which also doesn't affect their efficacy.
100% biodegradable and compostable - just dispose of them in your green recycling or foodwaste bins or pop in your compost heap.
Combine with Living Naturally's stain remover stick for a natural laundry.
SPECIAL OFFER! Over time, soapnuts can become a bit sticky in the cotton bag. This doesn't affect their use but we are offering some of our older stock bags at a lower price for this reason. Grab them before they're gone!
HOW TO USE:
Place 5 shells into muslin washbag provided
Place washbag into drum of washing machine with clothes
Wash clothes as directed by fabric care instructions
Save used shells, and reuse up to four more times
Add fragrance if wished by adding 15-30 drops of essential oil into the muslin washbag before washing

You can use the shells to make liquid detergent, handwash, or multipurpose cleaner. Your used shells can even make a foaming wash for washing dishes, pets, vegetables, surfaces, floors, or as a handwash or bodywash.

Soap nutshell - they don’t make the lather I thought they would (any at all at 30 degrees) but they seem to be a good alternative to normal washing soap
Great service. Arrived very fast! Looking forward to using them. Thank you
Excellent product. Use 4-5 soap nuts in the muslin bag which I put into the drum.Lovely clean clothes and the soaps nuts can be reused for 3 more washes. A big plus was no white powdery residue which I sometimes found on dark clothes with some standard washing powders and liquids. I alway pretreat stains with the Living Naturally Natural Stain Remover which is also excellent.
Good value for money and a great start to environmentally friendly washing.
I am amazed how well the soap nuts work! My clothes feel so soft... I even shared with my parents for them to try! My mum washed a dirty oven glove and it came out great! Company provided fast delivery and I am very pleased with my purchase.
