What is a Soap Nut?
They're actually not "nuts" at all! These curious little pods are harvested, de-seeded, and sun dried fruit from the “Soapberry” tree native to Northern India and Southern Nepal. These towering, thickly vegetated trees are naturally organic because pests do not like the taste of their frothy fruit.
Of all the varieties of soap nuts, Sapindus Mukorossi is the best for cleaning because it is loaded with the natural surfactant “saponin.” When dissolved in warm water saponin transforms into a foamy substance that removes dirt and odors from most any surface – from textiles to tennis shoes!
