Place 6-8 soapnut-halves in the small cotton pouch included in the package of Himalayan Soapnutsâ ¢. Make sure to tie the drawstrings shut. Place the pouch of soapnuts in the washing machine with your laundry. For a scented wash, sprinkle a few drops of your favourite essential oil directly on the cotton pouch before tossing it in the washing machine. For heavily soiled or stained laundry, use the soapnuts in combination with non-toxic, bleach-free stain-removing salt (sodium percarbonate).
Super Economical Directions:
If they have been used twice, add them to your compost. If unused or only used once, soak them in hot water to extract the saponin, creating a multipurpose soapnut solution.
All Purpose Cleaner:
Himalayan Soapnuts are excellent for washing dishes and cleaning. The soapnut suds are extremely gentle and softening on the skin, so there is no irritation or dryness experienced when washing dishes. Hereâ¬ "!s how to make a Soapnut Solution: In a small/medium cooking pot with a lid, add some water, and cook a small handful of soapnuts for about five minutes. Cover the pot with a lid while cooking. After five minutes, remove the pot from heat and let cool. Remove the soapnut shells, and place in the compost. Experiment with the amount of soapnuts you cook each time to determine the strength of solution that bests suits your needs.
By making a soapnut solution and placing it in a squeeze bottle, or a reusable shampoo bottle, you can use it as an everyday shampoo. It is wonderful for helping to get rid of dandruff or psoriasis. Try it for a body wash too!
Bathing Your Pets:
Just as you would use a soapnut solution for your own shampoo or body cleanser; use it for your cat or dog too! They will love the mild, soothing suds - especially if they suffer from dry skin or bald patches.
Taking Care of your Plants:
A mild soapnut solution is wonderful for getting rid of common houseplant pests, and protecting the plants from possible ones. The mild suds deter any prospective pests due to the saponin content, which is repulsive to insects and pests. Simply make a mild solution and put into a spray bottle. Spray generously onto the foliage of your plants and the top of the soil.
