How to make a liquid:
Boiling yields the best saponin extract.
For liquid extract - add 1 tsp. powder per litre of water, bring to a boil, stir, let cool and strain.
Quick and easy method - use a pinch of soap nut powder in a bottle of warm water and shake to form foam.
For clarity, filter soapnut powder through the cotton muslin bag (supplied), through a tea towel or mesh coffee filter.
For rich foam, use a mixer in a wide mouth container or foaming pump dispenser.
Storage - indefinite shelf life dry, but once in liquid form it ought to be refrigerated.
