Included: 30 berries, 2 muslin cloth bags in recycled paper container
5 berries will do 100 loads of laundry. In just one box, that gives you over 600 loads of laundry!
100% organic, natural and compostable. These soapberries or soap nuts are part of the lychee plant family. It takes 9 years for a soap nut tree to be matured for harvest, but then can be harvested for a whopping 90 years! This makes them super sustainable! Washing machines can contain some horrible bacteria due to the moist, dark environment of a washing machine. That bacteria is the musty smell you get when the washer has been left closed. Soap nuts are known to kill this bacteria :-)
How they work:
Pop the 5 berries in the included bag of in your washer and let them work their magic! They release saponin that works just like soap. They work best when used with warm to hot water. They will work with cold water, but they won't get as soapy. They are mild enough to be used on delicates and baby clothes. Do not put them in your dryer. You can use single berries to wash dishes, your hair, your pets and more!
