Basic Directions (Wash Bag Method):
• Put 5-6 shells (1/2 oz) in wash bag and tie closed.
• Toss directly in washer with laundry.
• Reuse 5 - 8 times or until spent (turn grey). (Based on actual user experiences - no exaggeration.)
• Used shells are compostable and/or excellent when used as a nutrient rich garden mulch.
• Use traditional and/or natural cleaning aids as desired.
• Loads vary due to size, cycles, temp, hardness, machine type, laundry's degree of soiling, etc. Make adjustments as needed. Experiment & have fun!
Note: For best performance with HE washers, we recommend pre-soaking the berries in a cup of warm water for 3 - 5 min. (especially if soap nuts are dry). Then pour the cup of water into the detergent drawer, & toss the wash bag with berries into the washer drum.

Number of loads vary due to water temperature, hardness, washer type, cycle selection, etc. Est. loads are based on approx. 1/2 oz. (around 5 average size, seedless soap berries) per medium size load. HE washers typically yield more loads. May use with traditional cleaning boosters as desired.


• Don't overstuff loads. Allow adequate water flow for circulation and agitation of the wash bag.
• Use the pre-soak cycle for best results.
• Use traditional laundry aids as desired. (If chemical aids are used, the saponin in the rinse water will minimize any negative effects.)
• Soft water may require less soap nuts. Very hard water may require more.
• There is no need for fabric softener. Soap nuts leave your laundry soft and fresh smelling.
• Soap nuts will not remove heavy stains. As with any detergent, pre-treat stains with a stain remover as usual.
• For super whites, try adding washing soda, softening salts, borax or oxygen bleach. Any cleaning boosters may be used as desired.
• Laundry will smell fresh and clean. For a scent, add an essential oil of choice on the wash bag or put the essential oil on a rag and toss in dryer.
• Note: Avoid Tea Tree oil exposure with infants and for diaper washing. Avoid essential oils if pregnant.
• There will be very little suds as there are no commercial foaming agents or chemicals.
• Soap nuts are commonly used for washing cloth diapers. They will not cause diaper rash. Follow diaper manufacturer's directions carefully.
• Start fresh! Run a few empty loads (or with some old rags) using Soap Nuts to purge your machine of built-up, residues left by your old detergents. Avoid having that old gunk from being released back into your good laundry. Your machine will also begin smelling like new.
