Some facts about soap nut:

  • Soap nuts should not be used to wash jewelries embedded with corals, pearls and gem stones. Soap nut destroys the luster and even structure of the precious beads.
  • Only plain metal jewelries (gold or silver) can be washed with soap nuts.

  • Ladies of our grandmother’s generation used soap nut to washing clothes and vessels. It was even a hair cleanser then.  Those were the days ladies oiled their hair 24 x 7 throughout.
  • But in today’s generation the hair care routine has changed and thus soap nut cannot be used directly as a hair cleanser. The soap nut is not a suitable hair cleanser for our current life style. It will strip off all the natural oils of the hair and turn the hair strands into hay like. I have experienced this.
