Lil'Soap nuts come with a small, reusable calico bag - add 4-5 soap nut shells, pull the drawstring tight and toss in your wash.
This bag can be used up to 5 times before the nuts can be tossed into the compost heap or garden. The nuts will start to go 'mushy' after a lot of washes so I replace mine after the 5th wash.
When you buy a 250g bag, it will contain up to 100 nuts (many are in segments or halves) which can equate to 30-40 small bags. At 5 loads per bag that's approx. 100 washes costing around 10c/wash as opposed to approx 26c for commercial detergents!
After your wash, remove the bag of soap nuts and let them dry, or use them again right away if you’re doing another load.
Lil'Soap Nuts contain natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and, as they are organically grown and hypoallergenic they are great for those with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis as well as sensitive skin.
Lil' Bit's 100% Organic Natural Soap Nuts engage in Fair Trade practice with our supplier, whose family are part of the communities who harvest the soapnuts. Although grown and harvested overseas, our nuts are bought from an Australian Wholesaler.
