We provide a single use pack of soap nuts with each purchase for you to try and test the most natural and eco friendly method of washing.(These berry shells grow on the Sapindus mukorossi (Soap Berry) tree in the Himalayas and they naturally contains a cleaning agent that works like detergent, called saponin. Saponin is amazing at penetrating the fibres of your clothes, lifting stains from the fabric that is then rinsed away.)
