Natural Sponge ClothRegular price $9.99 Save $-9.99
If You Care Sponge Cloths are made in a patented process from a three dimensional blending of cellulose, non-GMO unbleached cotton and mirabilite – a natural mineral salt. During the production process, the mirabilite is washed out, leaving the remaining blend (70% cellulose & 30% cotton) extremely porous, which makes the sponge cloth extraordinarily absorbent. It can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water.
There is no better or more effective cleaning cloth for kitchens, countertops, bathrooms and general household cleaning, available anywhere. If You Care Sponge Cloths leave no streaks. They absorb liquids easily and quickly and release them with simple wringing. They are remarkably durable, tear and abrasion resistant, reusable over and over again, and can be machine washed in water up to 1900F (880C), up to 300 times.
If You Care Sponge Cloths and their packaging are made from 100% renewable resources and contain no petroleum or other fossil fuel products. Each cloth is reusable and washable many times. These sponge cloths reduce waste and the amount of material going to landfill. The packaging is a biopolymer made from corn starch which is certified compostable in commercial composting facilities, leading to a further reduction in waste, greenhouse gasses and diversion from landfill.
USE & CARE
Rinse cloth and wring out excess water to increase absorbency. Use with water, soap and water, or any household cleaner. After using, rinse thoroughly, wring out water, and leave flat to dry. Cloth can be washed at temperatures up to 1900F (880C) in dishwasher or washing machine with normal loads. Do not use chlorine bleach or chlorine products. After washing, leave to air dry. Do not tumble dry.

SOAP NUTS, also known as soapberries, washing nuts, soap nut shells and wash nuts, are basically the dried out shells from the soapberry. These berries are the fruit from a unique tree species.
SOAP NUTS release saponin when coming into contact with waterÂ between 30-60oC (86-140oF) and will last an average of 4-5 washes.
Use SOAP NUTS as a 100% organic alternative to synthetic laundry detergents. All-natural, biodegradable, organically grown, odorless, non-toxic and free of harsh chemicals. Gentle on delicate clothing, perfect for sensitive skin and allergies, naturally repels insects. Made in Nepal.
Contains: 500g soap nuts + 2 small cotton bags.
When using SOAP NUTS in your laundry, please make sure you keep the following things in mind: what type of water you have (hard or soft); the size of your washing machine and the load you are washing; how dirty the items are that you’re washing; and the temperature at which you are washing.
Experimentation will be key to finding the best use for your soap nuts. An average load may need 3-4 shells (or equivalent in pieces), a larger and dirtier load may require 5-8 shells and smaller loads may only need 2-3. Harder water may require more. We have included a cotton bag to be used for doing laundry with the soap. Otherwise you may use something you already have like the toe of tights or stockings, a bandana or maybe you can sew one out of an old t-shirt, rag or piece of cloth.
Just put your shells in your pouch, tie it shut, and drop it in the washing machine with your dirty laundry. You will not need to add any other detergent. SOAP NUTS wash most effectively between 30-60oC (86-140oF) and will last an average of 4-5 washes. When the Saponin has been exhausted from the shells for laundry use, they will look dark/grey and feel soggy. At this point, you can safely throw them on your compost heap or put them aside for making a mild soap nut liquid (see below). They also make a great hand soap - just toss them in your blender with some water and you get hand soap.
Doing laundry with soap nuts leaves your clothes incredibly soft, without the need for fabric softeners or conditioners, so no need to use fabric softener anymore. However, it doesn’t leave your laundry with much scent, so if you prefer laundry with a scent, you can add a few drops of essential oils to the wash, to your soap nut pouch, or to your dryer balls when drying.
SOAP NUTS are highly effective and gentle at the same time. It will leave your laundry fresh and clean and compared to other detergents, its mildness will keep colors bright, and maintain the fabric structure of your clothes for longer periods. It can be used on all fabrics including delicates like silk, cashmere and wool. SOAP NUTS are all natural, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, ecological, and economical!
If you prefer SOAP NUTS liquid use approximately 3 Tablespoons (or 45ml) per laundry load:
Making Soap Nut Liquid: SOAP NUT LIQUID (or juice) - Add about 100g (about 2 handfuls) of Soap Nut Shells to approximately 12 cups (3L) of water. Crush the shells into smaller pieces before adding. Bring to boil, and simmer for approximately 30 minutes. The boiling process extracts the saponin from the nut shells and combines with the water. You can use the liquid immediately or let it steep overnight. Strain into appropriate container and compost the remaining shells. You now have a concentrated, chemical free detergent that can then be used as a laundry detergent, shampoo, all-purpose cleaner, car wash, liquid soap, pet shampoo, dishwashing liquid or any other things you would normally clean with a liquid soap. Experiment with longer boil times and water-to-shell ratios for stronger and weaker concentrations.
DISH WASHER: Use soapnut liquid for washing your glasses, dishes, cutlery and pans as usual. Don’t be deceived by the lack of bubbles on the effectiveness of the cleaning. There are no artificial foaming agents so there will be very few if any lasting bubbles. Alternatively, just put 3 shells in the bottom of the cutlery holder and some vinegar in the rinse aid dispenser and your dishes will come out sparkling clean. (for more info see soapnut liquid making instructions below)
CLEANING & DETOXIFYING FOOD: Soak your fruit and vegetables for approximately 10-15 minutes in the soapnut liquid. Rinse off and enjoy this food free from harmful chemicals and residue. This soap nut solution can then be reused for household cleaning
CLEANING JEWELRY: Soap nuts are commonly used in Indian households for cleaning and shining jewelry. Jewelry is soaked in soap nut liquid and then rubbed with a cloth to give it a shine.
NATURAL PESTICIDE: Using soap nuts is an effective and natural alternative to repel insects off your plants and around the house. This easily replaces chemicals. This is a great use for left over soap nut liquid from washing or laundry.
SHAMPOO: Simply use soap nut liquid in place of your regular shampoo! Since soapnut liquid does not foam like regular shampoo its easy to use to much liquid. If you find your hair is feeling dry or greasy you probably used to much. For best results reuse a shampoo bottle with a pump to help determine how much you need. It will naturally help prevent dandruff and keep your hair soft and strong. When using to treat dandruff apply the liquid soap nut on your scalp and leave on for 5-10 minutes. Make sure the liquid does not get into the eye as it will burn. Rinse hair with water. Also works well as a body wash!
Storing Soap Nuts: Soap nuts absorb moisture very easily. They become dark & sticky in a very short period of time if left exposed to air. Ideally the nuts should be packed in an airtight container or a plastic bag tied tight with a rubber band. However, sticky soap nuts do not mean that they have gone bad. They will still wash & clean perfectly. Soap nut powder, however, if not stored perfectly in air tight conditions, will become lumpy very easily. Once in lump form, the powder is difficult to use, even though it still retains all its original washing properties.
Cashmere CombRegular price $16.00 Save $-16.00
Our CARE Collection helps you minimize the harmful use of resources when cleaning and taking care of your Care By Me garments and home goods. With the right care, your products will last longer! We hope you will love them forever.
A gentle comb for use with your cashmere goods from CARE BY ME. The natural peeling, or pilling, that occurs with cashmere will produce some little nubs of fibers on the surface of your knitted goods. Gently wipe them away with this comb.
We also recommend a gentle wash or two of your cashmere - this will help remove the excess fibers and fluff those woven into your goods.
Cashmere is an amazing natural material that is extremely addictive when you have brought your first piece into your home.
Please do use your cashmere regularly but remember to treat it well, so that it lasts a long time – and looks new for longer!
We recommend that you avoid washing your cashmere product too often. Cashmere is self-cleaning, and smells disappear quickly from the material. Try airing it outside or on a hanger in the bathroom while showering and let the steam clean it.
We recommend that you wash your cashmere product in a front-load type of washing machine, either on a wool or hand-washing cycle with water temperature set to 86oF (and max 400 centrifuge), however do not use large industrial machines.
Always use detergent specifically for wool and never fabric softener. We recommend our Soap Nuts as a natural alternative to detergent and softener. Please see them listed in our Care Products.
Dry cashmere lying flat, preferably on a towel in the shade (no direct sunlight) and never in the dryer. Avoid stretching the material.
It is possible to hand wash cashmere, but as it is common to rub or wring an item while doing so, we dissuade this. You risk wringing it out of shape or destroying the fibers.
If hand washing is a necessity, wash one item at a time in lukewarm water and with liquid detergent made for wool or using our Soap Nuts. Let the small bag of 4-5 Soap Nuts soak in the water before swishing to spread the saponin in the water, and then proceed with washing your CBM product. Lift the product carefully in and out of the water. Do NOT wring or rub the material. Gently press the water out using the palm, lay flat on a towel and gently roll it up to remove excess moisture. Then remove from wet towel and lay it out on a flat surface to dry, preferably on a fresh towel and in the shade.
Remember to never stretch the product.
Cashmere is naturally stain resistant, however, should you ever have a stain, wash the item as advised above. Avoid rubbing the stain! Blot only. If it is not possible to remove the stain by machine, or hand washing the item, then contact a professional dry cleaner.
Even the best quality cashmere will produce pilling (peeling), especially under the arms or other places where the material rubs against itself. We recommend that you do not use electrical appliances or shave the cashmere, since you risk cutting threats or fibers, creating more pilling or even holes. Instead, use our cashmere comb, which gently removes surface nubs/pilling. Place your cashmere product on a flat surface and ”comb” it, in the needed areas. As an alternative you can gently remove it with your fingers.
Avoid using hangers for your cashmere items. You might find that they lose their shape, especially items which are heavier. Fold the products and put them in a drawer or on a shelf. Since cashmere is a natural material it can attract pests such as moths. If long time storage is needed, we recommend that you pack the items in airtight bags. An old remedy for deterring moths and other insects, is to use aromatic cedar or dried lavender in your drawers and closets – and it smells lovely!
