What Are Soap Nuts?
Soap nuts, also known as soap berries, are fruit produced by a variety of large shrubs and small trees; the most common is the Sapindus mukorossi tree. When the fruit of the tree is ripe, the soap nuts are picked, de-seeded, and the shells are dried in the sun. The shell of the fruit contains a natural soap called saponin that can be used to create cleaning solutions that are completely and utterly chemical-free. Soap nuts are versatile and can replace many conventional detergents, soaps, and cleaners. Despite their name, soap nuts are actually a fruit and won’t trigger nut allergies.
