Ecozone Soap Nuts 300g

Product number: 46143

It’s not often you find a cleaning product that only contains 1 ingredient, but that’s exactly what you’re getting with EcoZone’s Soap Nuts. Grown on trees, soap nuts are a completely natural and effective way of cleaning your clothes, with no abrasive chemicals in sight. The shells of these wonder nuts (although they’re actually berries) contain Mother Nature's detergent, called saponin, a natural surfactant which creates a gentle foam that effectively removes dirt from your clothes while keeping colours bright and looking their best. Better still, the skin-friendly saponin even makes your clothes nice and soft, so you don’t need to add fabric softener. Complete with a zipped washbag to hold your soap nuts, you have everything you need to tackle laundry day.

Easy to use

Simply place 4-5 nuts (depending on the size of the load) into the bag and place on top of your laundry in the machine – that’s it! It really couldn’t be simpler. Once your load is done, and you’ve taken out your clean, fresh clothes, remove the bag and leave the nuts to dry as you can use them 4 more times before they need to be discarded – they’re completely biodegradable so won’t be troubling landfill.

Kind to clothes… and you

As there are no harsh chemicals or bleach in soap nuts, they’re suitable to use on all your clothes, including delicate silk and wool items, and baby clothes. You can even use them to hand-wash clothes that are too delicate to go into the washing machine – just place the bag, with the nuts inside, into warm water and wait for a few minutes until the soap is released, then add your clothes and wash as normal.

Soap nuts are the ideal washday solution for people with sensitive skin too, as they’re free from all the usual synthetic chemicals and perfumes often found in most commercial detergents.

Kind to the environment

We’re all becoming increasingly aware of the negative impact certain chemicals and plastics can have on the environment, but you can wash away all those fears with soap nuts, as they release no harsh chemicals into the environment. As the nuts are provided for us by Mother Nature, they can be returned to her too. Once you’ve finished with your soap nuts, simply pop them onto your compost heap. The packaging and wash-bag can also be recycled.

Soap nuts are effective at low temperatures, so you keep your energy usage to a minimum too.

Kind to your purse

Each 100g bag of soap nuts will last you up to a whopping 100 washes, making them a much cheaper alternative to expensive tablets and powders that need replacing more often. You’ll also save money on fabric softener, as soap nuts naturally soften your garments.

Did you know?

Soap nuts, also known as soapberries, grow on Sapindus Genus trees and are part of the Lychee family. Not a new trend by far, soap nuts have been used for thousands of years for their natural fabric cleaning qualities.

"Specks on washing"

star star star star_border star_border

I was pleased with the results but noticed that the nuts seem to split & I end up with specks of brown on my washing. Also I am concerned that as nuts stay in washing for rinse cycles they are still washing rather than rinsing. Am I correct?

"Excellent alternative"

star star star star star

These have worked really well for us. I’d only planned to give them a go for towels as I was dubious they’d be up to the job for all my laundry. I thought one or two washes per week would at least make a small difference to the environment. I haven’t had any problems the other reviewers have and I’ve used for more than towels. They clean underwear & tshirts perfectly well. They don’t foam much in the wash and you have to live without the strong smell of softener. Wet washing smells of nothing which is no bad things. I’m really pleased & they’ll go on the compost heap when they’re spent.

"Wash bag is useless"

star star star star_border star_border

Recently bought these, as previously I used Ecoegg for washing. On the first and subsequent wash the nut shells ended up in the drum and around the rubber seal of the machine. The zip on the bag supplied easily slips and releases the shells into the wash. This is something Ecozone need to address, I have adapted by using the Ecoegg holder. As for the efficiency of this nut shells, the washing seemed to be clean - yet to try out further.

"I love these! CHEAPER than Standard Liq / Powder"

star star star star star

I ordered these as I’m trying to be more eco friendly.I calculated they SAVE me 0.12p per wash. That’s a lot and it all adds up! I also use a antibacterial cleanser in each wash and vinegar as softener.

"Good for senstive skin"

star star star star star

These are brilliant and clean the clothes really well even though I have very hard water. I get approx 3 washes out of each set of nuts depending on the wash temperature . I pre treat any stains with a spray and when washing whites I just add a scoop of Bio D nappy fresh. I do not add any fabric conditioner but have been told by a friend who also uses the soap nut to add white vinegar to the fabric conditioner draw to act as a softener.
