Large Size Eco Nuts Soap Nuts (360 loads)
are completely sustainable dried fruit shells that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree
(also called the Soap Berry
or Soap Nut Tree) in Nepal, India and Indonesia. The ones we
harvest come from high up in the Himalayas and are the highest
quality "soap nut" on the market. These fruit shells have been
used in India and China for centuries, and are now
gaining popularity in America and Europe as a renewable,
biodegradable and organic alternative to chemical detergents
and expensive Green laundry soaps.
Eco Nuts \
saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking
the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of
your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt
suspended in the water that is rinsed away.
are gentle on both clothes
and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin,
eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they
are perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers. All-Natural
Eco Nuts are also great for septic and grey water
systems. But dont expect these shells to foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents. Foam
simply does not represent cleaning power.
Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees
grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or
pesticides. The saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides
are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated
soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified
USDA Organic by EcoCert at the source.
Nut Allergy Safe!
are actually a berry
fruit related to the lychee and are not nuts at all. They are
completely nut allergy safe and have been used successfully
with no reactions by people with nut allergies. They earned
the name "nuts" because they dry into hard shells like
nuts instead of squishy fruit.
Eco Nuts has been a terrific solution for many customers with
skin allergies and other conditions, people who have
many allergies or compromised immune systems should always take
proper precautions and first wash one small item in a small
container or sink OR do a patch test before washing an entire
load in the washing machine.

Eco Nuts Are Better for Cloth
reason why Cloth Diapers leak is residue buildup. Even if you use
free and clear or other so-called natural detergents, all of
these leave a residue on your fabric which will cause the fabric
to become less absorbent. Fabric softener will additionally
make the diapers less absorbent. This residue can also cause diaper
rash. Diapers are more prone to residue buildup because they
are more absorbant than other fabrics.
Eco Nuts leaves very little residue, so you don't have to strip as often, and will remove any residue buildup left behind by other products.
Eco Nuts are great for cloth diapers because they do not contain any dyes, enzymes, softeners, or fragrances which contribute
to the deterioration and excessive wear/tear on diapers.
Eco Nuts very effectively remove all lingering smells.
saponin in Eco Nuts actually helps to loosen fibers in the dryer instead of tighten
them, keeping your diapers as absorbant as they were when you first bought them,
even after many many washes.

fabric softener is needed for your diapers to be soft and
