Organic, natural and chemical-free, soapnut shells work by releasing natural saponin (soap) when mixed with water
Effective at removing dirt and grease from laundry at all temperatures, from 30 to 90degrees.
Naturally gentle to coloureds

For automatic washing machines:
Depending on water hardness, size of load and soiling, put between 4 and 8 whole shells in the cotton bag (provided)
Tie securely and place in washing machine amongst laundry
Soaking the bag of shells in hot water for a few minutes before use can achieve better results and a quick 3 minute hot soak is advised when washing at less than 40 degrees, to activate the soap.

(More instructions are on the box)

Stubborn stains can be pre-soaked in a cold solution of soda crystals or bicarb - or add a couple of tablespoons of soda crystals to the powder drawer (or powdered bleach) for a whiter wash.

No need for fabric softener as soapnut shells are a natural softener
They have a neutral, clean soapy smell.
In hard water areas adding a dash of white vinegar should also help soften the water and produce a cleaner wash.
If you wish to add fragrance, add a few drops of diluted essential oil in the softener drawer (eg lavender, ylang ylang, geranium, rose)
Or just use dash of Ecological Fabric Softener in the fabric softener compartment!

For a whites wash, soapnuts work well at higher temperatures and can be combined with laundry bleach such as Ecover Laundry Bleach to the powder dispenser drawer

Soapnuts can be re-used 3-4 times and are worn out once they become thin and soft, mushy and faded to light grey.
