Hypoallergenic Laundry Powder
Want fresh smelling laundry that isn’t made of harmful chemicals? How about something that cleans your clothes but leaves no residue behind and is hypoallergenic? Well, let me introduce you to Sapindus Mukorossi shells! The little guys contain saponin, which is a natural surfactant. Activation of the saponin from the soap shells requires nothing more than putting them directly in the wash machine in warm water. This product contains ground soap shells for easier use. It is also effective in high efficiency (HE) washers and carpet cleaners because they are a low sudsing detergent.
This natural cleaner is soft on your skin as well as your clothes. You don’t even need a laundry softener. The fine powder smells like apple cider vinegar but it leaves your clothes smelling like nothing other than and fresh, clean. The powder is anti-microbial and anti-fungal as well as hypoallergenic and perfect for baby clothes, diapers and people with sensitive skin. It is also biodegradable and do not pollute our water systems.
The shells come from the berries of the sapindus mukorossi tree. The berries are shaken from the trees onto nets by villagers in remote northern regions of India. This is a major source of income for some villages and increased demand will provide an additional needed economic stimulus, plus will encourage increased planting, growth and farming. The shells are also ground in India and certified organic in the United States.
