Maggie's Soap Nuts™


Maggie's Soap NutsTare the only laundry soap that grows on trees! Truly effective, 100% natural and safe for your most sensitive skin. Soap NutsT are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry tree. They contain saponin, a natural cleaner used for thousands of years to clean clothes, just like the plants used by Native Americans for washing.

Simply put a few Soap NutsT into the included cotton sack and drop it in your laundry. Your clothes come out clean, vibrant, and soft. Replace your laboratory detergents and softeners with the soap made from Nature by Nature. Your clothes, your skin, your family, and your planet will thank you.

Works with HE and regular machines. Also available as a liquid detergent.
