I have been trying to lessen my impact on the planet since long before it became the cool thing to do and I have recently found a new way of doing this. Soapnuts first came to my attention when I was searching for information about greener ways to do my washing and all the links I found on Google kept coming back to Soapnuts. I found myself at www.inasoapnutshell.com and after reading a little bit about Soapnuts on there I saw I could order a free sample and only had to pay for the postage through Paypal or send a SAE for them. I sent off for some and I was so impressed that I have just today ordered myself a full pack because I think they are so ... Read the complete review

Alright, I have to admit it. When I opened the pack of soap nuts I'd bought from my nearest hippy store, I was a bit dismayed to find a bunch of little squashed spheres, bearing a striking resemblance to kangaroo poo and smelling strongly of creosote. This was entirely my own fault. I'd seen - and ignored - all the signs. First of all, they were on sale right next to the jossticks. Second of all, I'd had to squeeze my way through rows of tie-dyed and besandled customers to get my hands on a pack. I sorted out the cheapest, roughest clothes I could find to wash with them first time through. No sense in ruining my best togs, I thought... let's see how they ... Read the complete review

I first read about soapnuts sometime ago and made a mental note to check them out however my memory failed and I completely forgot all about it, until I came across reference to them in a book I recently read. Not wanting to let the grass grow I logged onto the inasoapnutshell website and ordered a free sample of them. Now I would like to stress they were not exactly free, as you have to pay postage, which can be done in one of two ways. * Pay 75p through PayPal (this includes a 22p charge by PayPal) * Send a SAE (the site states a 48p large letter stamp but on checking with Royal Mail these have gone up to 52p). I opted for the PayPal method because ... Read the complete review

Reading several reviews about Soapnuts and how good they were both at washing and for the environment, plus you could save money on expensive detergents I decided to order my sample nuts, which were free of charge apart from postage and packing of 75p. :: Background :: I had never heard of this product so before parting with my cash I did a bit of research! Sapindus is a genus of shrubs and small trees native to warm temperate and tropical regions, the ones I have came from India or Nepal. The fruit is called the Soapnut and is small and leathery skinned, about 1 -2cm diameter. The soap nuts contain Saponin which is a natural detergent, which are ... Read the complete review

About an year ago I though I should look into a better eco friendly alternative into washing my clothing. Initial I discovered Eco-balls but I found them to be too expensive, It was costing me more then my usual detergent but I persevered looking further thinking as here must be something better out there. And so I started reading about SoapNuts. I was really intrigued by the fact that there wore actually dried up berries of a small shrub tree. It turns out that they have been used in India for centuries yet is such a new concept to me as I have never seen them before in any supermarket, natural health food shops, eco friendly or hippy short of shop. So I have ... Read the complete review
