Seepje is a natural soap – or detergent – that already existed in nature for ages. It is a little ball that releases in a natural way it’s soap to shaking water. But not everything at once! You can use a little ball up to three times and then its natural soap material is completely empty and you can throw the little ball away.
What is this little ball?
This little ball they use is the Nepalese fruit Sapindus Mukorossi. These fruits grow at the Nepalese Sapindus trees and the peels are harvest from the wild. Organically they say – I don’t know how that precisely works – but there are more benefits such as those trees are now saved for their fruits and peels and not used as firewood. So they save a little forest as well! Farming those peels and caring for the trees and their fruits is a real job in Nepal. There are “peelfarmers”. I have never imagined that before but that is probably because I grew up in a total different area and still have to discover many things of the world.
Have you ever heard of a soap – or detergent – that is completely natural?
You can find more info – in Dutch – about Seepje here on there original website: www.seepje.nl and order Seepje as well! In my opinion it is not expensive if you know what you win by it…maybe it is better for the clothes as well!
One I heard from a shopadvisor that everything elastic you shouldn’t wash with a softener…only the normal soap because a softener ‘eats’ your elastics slowly. Seepje does not have this effect. Seepje is a natural organic lovely soap!
If you have any questions or want to know something that is not told here, you can ask it to one of the three washing men by mailing: Jasper, Melvin or Lennard … firstname.lastname@example.org.
And do you know – or have you ever heard of – farmers with such a specific craft?
