HOW TO USE
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: 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.
