What Soapnuts Are Used For

Soapnuts have recently become a fashionable trend in the environment and health conscious community as an alternative to conventional chemical-ridden cleaning products.

Soapnuts are one of the key ingredients to making your own organic personal use products including shampoo, toothpaste, body wash, household surface scrub, and laundry detergents. This article looks at how you can use soapnut powder as a shampoo and a multi-purpose household cleaner.

Bubblenutwash comes as a laundry detergent but it can easily be used to make all the other aforementioned products too! In fact, we make using soapnuts more convenient for you by providing it in powder form. It saves you the hassle of finding soapnuts in the market, crushing them, and sorting out the inconsistent powder granules.

To use soapnut powder as a shampoo, you simply rub and paste the powder onto your scalp and rinse it over and out of your hair. This method works best if you have dandruff or itchy scalp. If you want to opt for a deep cleansing method, then dilute the powder into a little bit of water so that it turns into a paste. Then apply it to your hair like a regular shampoo.

You can also use the soapnut powder as a multi-purpose household cleaner to scrub surfaces, wash dishes (including pots and pans), and clean toilets. You will not see the foaming as much as conventional cleaning products but that is indicative of its pureness and lack of chemical ingredients. Do not be fooled by the foaming expectations that we have developed from advertisements. The soapnut powder cleans just as well as your conventional product and without exposing you and your loved ones to carcinogens.

Your hair and home will be safer, cleaner, and free of chemicals! Since Bubblenutwash offers soapnut powder in a readily usable form and delivers to your doorstop, adopting these alternatives is only a click away.
