If you haven’t heard of it before, well, soapnuts are not actually nuts and they are not even related to nuts! They are a type of berry the size of a macadamia nut that are cracked open and dried in the sun, producing a dark golden ‘shell’. These shells are what are known as ‘soapnuts’. They are composed of saponin which is a surfactant that takes out dirt and oils from clothing when mixed with water.
