Washing Nut Shels

The vegetable detergent

Die Waschnuss (Sapindus trifoliatus) ist in Indien schon seit Urzeiten als pflanzliches Waschmittel im täglichen Gebrauch. Man gibt ein paar Schalen in einem kleinen Säckchen (wird mitgeliefert) zusammen mit der Wäsche in die Waschmaschine und fertig. Für alle Waschtemperaturen geeignet: Bunt- und Kochwäsche 30 - 90 Grad, Wolle und Seide. Außerdem sind Waschnüsse farbschonend.

Bei hartnäckigen Flecken und bei Weißwäsche empfiehlt sich die Zugabe von etwas Fleckensalz. Die Waschnuss ist geruchsneutral. Für duftende Wäsche kann etwas Aromaöl dazugegeben werden. 1 kg Waschnüsse reichen für ein Jahr bei 2 - 3 Waschvorgängen pro Woche.
