soapnutsSquishy squishy squashie, give your clothes a washy…  Maybe Barny’s not your thing, but Soap Nuts should be.  Completely natural, these ‘nuts’ are actually fruit from the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, found primarily in the Himilayas.  They are harvested, de-seeded and dried in the sun.  When you wash your laundry with them, the saponin contained within the outer shell acts as a fantastic natural detergent.  These have been used for centuries in other parts of the earth, but are only just now gaining popularity in the western world.  Marketed by The Laundry Tree with a beautiful linen bag, they leave no scent and get laundry fresh and clean.  You even have the option of putting a few drops of scented oil onto the bag and choosing your own aroma on washing day.  After all – we all love choice as well as the environment.
