Use and Storage

STOREAGE: Soapnuts will stay “active” and useable for several months if stored correctly. Store in an airtight container. Soapnuts will dry out over time and darken in colour, but when added to water still function just as well.

FOR LAUNDRY: put 5-8 soap nuts in a sock or similar (we usually provide a small cloth bag but are currently out of stock – sorry!), and put this into your washing machine with your clothes. Wash as normal. These 5-8 soap nuts can be used 3-4 times like this.

FOR WASHING-UP LIQUID/DISH SOAP: Simmer a handful of soap nuts in a pan of water for 20-30 minutes. Sieve the soap nuts out and allow the liquid to cool. Pour into a bottle and store in the fridge (or a cool, dark place). This will keep for 2 weeks or so after which you can make some more! Anything that last for a really long time, is usually full of nasties to stop it spoiling. Used soap nuts can be put in the compost heap.
