Care Instructions

Moisture free is key when storing the nuts. Store them in an air-tight container to prevent moisture from getting to them. And store them in a cool place away from sunlight.

If moisture gets to the nuts, they will become a little more sticky and gummy. With age, the nuts will turn to a darker brown shade. But the cleaning power remains and it continues to cleanse well.

Do not use it to wash your white shirt as it will slowly turn yellowish.

Packaging

Paper bag. Used plastic container.

    This worked really well at home: I’ll be using this a lot more now, no more detergent for me! Detergent was really harsh on my skin, but not this 🙂 Recommend this to anyone cooking at home.
