These odd looking Eco Nuts are acturally dried berries from a tree that grows in the Himalayas. When agitated in waterm they produce a naturally occuring surfactant called saponin. These berries are commonly called Soap Berries or Soap Nuts (because the fruit has a hard shell that resembles a nut). Saponin can be used as a soap or detergent which gently cleanses, or as a fabric softener - an option for those sensitive to conventional laudry detergents or other cleaning chemicals. Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, and certified USDA Organic by Oregon Tilth. This means they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals., fertilizers, or pesticides. Saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. Directions: Place 4-5 Eco Nuts in the provided wash bag and toss in washer with your clothes. Leave them in through the rinse cycle - the saponin released from the berries also acts as a fabric softener. Use as a detergent, a fabric softener, or both. Re-use until they lose their colour, become as thin as a piece of paper and are crunchy and brittle when dry and it is time to replace (about 10 times). The saponin is in the shell, se don't worry if you notice they are hollow. Even pieces have saponin until they become paper thin. It is common to not see any suds. These don't foam like a chemical detergent, but the cleaning ability is still there. Bubbles don't equal cleaning power. Gentle on delicate fabrics and colours. Ideal for sensitive skin.
