Found this on another forum,and they do get delivered,although they ask you to send large envelope,the people on forum said a normal size would do.

I've always wanted to try these,I opted for the paypal method @ 75p.

As the 48p method as you still have to post the envelope to them,this would mean the cost of another stamp 2nd class 26p (48p+26p=72p)

Got my reciept from paypal etc no problem :)

It tells you all about soapnuts and uses on site,uses etc....

To receive your sample either:-

Send a stamped (48p LARGE stamp) self-addressed envelope (DL size will do, does not need to be too big or padded, they are robust little fellas!) to the address below.


Or, as a cheaper option to save paying twice for postage you could pay £0.75 by paypal to cover the postage and envelope costs and we will send some out to you. (would love to charge less, but paypal charge £0.22p for the transaction)
Just click on the "add to basket" button below.
Please note this is for postage within the UK only, please contact us for overseas samples.

[FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Humanst521 BT]How do they work?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Soapnut shells contain saponin, a natural soap that forms gentle bubbles when the soapnuts come into contact with water; these are excellent for cleaning laundry and leaving it beautifully soft. Occasionally the shells still contain the nut, which should be disposed of.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Do they remove stains?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]They are quite effective at removing everyday marks i.e. Grass, Tomato ketchup. Remember they don’t contain stain removers so stubborn ones need separate treatment.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]What happens to the soapnut shells in the rinse cycle?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]That is just one of life’s imponderables; they just don’t seem to leave any residue. [/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Don’t ask me why![/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]How can I scent my washing? [/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Add about 8 drops of essential oil to your conditioner drawer on your machine for sweet smelling soft laundry.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Don’t I need my conditioner drawer for fabric conditioner?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]No, haven’t you read how soft they leave your laundry.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Will my whites stay white?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Soapnuts don’t contain any brighteners or whiteners so over a long period of time your whites might need a boost, perhaps try Ecover bleach.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Will my colours stay colourful?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Yes, because they don’t contain any whiteners or brighteners your colours will stay coloured for longer.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]What about nappies?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]I wash nappies with them and my little boy has the sweetest smelling, cleanest botty around, just ask me for the sniff test![/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]What else can I do with soapnuts?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Loads of things! Boil a large handful of crushed soapnut shells in 500 ml of water, simmer for 5-10 mins then strain and you have great cleaning liquid, wash your car or cooker.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT][COLOR=red]Are they good value for money?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT][COLOR=red]I should coco, at just 3 pence for a wash if you use one lot of shells 4 times.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT][COLOR=red](Kate (who is known for living on the edge) achieved an amazing total of 7 successful washes from 8 half shells!)[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]Can I eat them?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]No, don’t even try! They are not edible, nutritious or good for you.[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT][SIZE=4]Are they fairly traded?[/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT][SIZE=4]We have been assured by our supplier that everyone involved in the production of these soapnut shells are all paid fairly and no child labour is involved.[/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]And one last question. What do I get for my money?[/FONT]
[FONT=Humanst521 BT]A beautiful unbleached cotton bag full of lovely soapnuts, a smaller cotton drawstring bag to put them in when you wash your laundry and a crystal clean, clear conscience.[/FONT]

I have been using them for a while and they work! I have saved a fortune in soap powder as my bag which cost about £10 will have lasted me 6 months.

6 months washing for a family of 4 for under a tenner!

I thought this was going to be something to eat, even after I saw the image :giggle:

I have been using them for 2 months and find that i put in my normal soap powder as well . Imo they are useless but lots of other people seem to think they are good.
For 72p its worth it for someone to try them.
#12
Never seen these before,sounds impressive-i,ve ordered a sample worth atry for 75p!Voted hot
#13
thank you. i have seen these talked about on tv, but never seen them for sale. have just ordered some.
#14
I've been using soapnuts from inasoapnutshell.com for about a year and a half now (after getting a sample in my shopping bag at a UK Designer sale). I really, really like them and would never go back to that nasty chemical fragrance you get from detergent anymore...

They've worked on pretty much everything we've ever thrown at them - really muddy work clothes, incredibly smelly sweaty gym kit, chocolate and other food stains, you name it. And since I sew, I just made up a bunch of little fabric envelope patches out of fabric scraps and we just rotate between them and toss the nuts when they get squishy (usually they're squishy when wet, but crisp up as they dry, but after a while they'll not crisp up anymore and it's time to throw them).

They really are as economical as they state on the site and I'm a very satisfied customer.
#15
Worth a go at 75p. Would be good to hear peoples results.
#16
Great find thanks, order some sqishy towels here we come
#17
Have never heard of this before but worth a try so have gone the paypal route as well. Hope they come with instructions!

People also think that laundry balls actually work!

I saw these in a test on the telly - chocolate stain next to a ketchup stain next to blood type thing. It compared it to normal, non-bio, the environment friendly powder, and laundry balls...and it came out bottom. None of the stains came off.

If you believe mankind has caused global warming and you also check the wattage of devices on standby, these are probably right up your street.
#20
Are these really nuts :? ????eg can I use them as my son has a nut allergy......am a bit scared to take the plunge and even have them in the house:-(
#21
Hi
I am Clare from In a soapnut shell
just wanted to reply to you about the nut allergy
they are seed pods not nuts so they should not cause any problems with nut allergy sufferers
I have 1000s of customers and have only had 2 cases of people reacting badly to them, but have had 100s of people email me who have found skin conditions (eczema etc) improved using them.
Thank you to every one who has ordered a sample and will send out asap. (thanks to this link we have had loads of orders, so will get packing !!!!!)
thanks All
:thumbsup:

#22
Will give them a go...nice little stocking filla.:santa:
#23
I really had bad skin, and can not find a detergent that is ok with my condition. So for a 75p punt, I have given these ago..

Fingers Crossed.

How did you find out about this thread,as i posted this and have never dealt with your company or used these...i found this on another forum :?


Nice of you to come and verify that you will be posting the samples too.....and welcome to Hotukdeals :thumbsup:


I have been told that these are great for colour washing,but whites and badly stained might need a boost from another source ie stain remover.

But as they are eco friendly, and pocket friendly,worth a go.....:thumbsup:
#27
Thanks for this - I'm happy to try any alternative to chemical detergents.

Heated and repped! :thumbsup:

Hi I found this thread yesterday, came home and found i had 500+ orders for samples!!!!!!! Wow... thank you all for your interest

I can trace back which websites are refering people to my website
so looked and found that over 3000 people had used your link . So thank you very much indeed!

they are great on coloured clothes as the have no brighteners (bleaching agents) so colours stay the same for longer. On whites they are good but slowly the clothes go off white. You can either use a bleach every so often (ecover bleach is good) or if you still have wash powder use that occasionally for a boost. For a really green but effective option Bicarbonate of soda in the wash drawer helps too.

You can use them at any temperature but the hotter the wash the less times you can re-use them
I always find at 60deg i get a really good wash
but 40 works just as well

Thank you all for ordering samples and I really hope you enjoy using them

By the way if you want to scent your laundry add some essential oils to the conditioner drawer (about 8-10 drops)

cheers all
Clare

Not had mines yet,but i guess as they are posted 2nd class might be a while yet :?
Anyone had theirs?
#31
Mine arrived on Thursday - basically, they're good for lightly soiled items, but wouldn't deal with stains; I'm pleased with them, overall! :)
#32
got mine yesterday.... just put a load of whites on @ 60 degrees.... put some lavender oil in the drawer and the tiniest amount of rose fabric conditioner to suspend the essential oil in... will let you kow how it turns out! well, i hope!!!
#33
Just emailed the owner about mines,they are all being posted out now,by the middle of week everyone should have theirs,as she had loads more orders then normal.

I wash a full football team kit every week,so looking for another good option to try,when mines comes,will let you know results on footy kit....:thumbsup:
