Laundry Time: Dropps Laundry Pacs - A Quick, Easy and Eco-Friendly Way to Save When Doing Laundry

Laundry Dropps Scent & Dye Free 42 load CtI am amazed at how much time and energy Dropps are saving me in the laundry room!  In the not too distant past, I used to have at least three different laundry products (scented detergent, scent-free detergent, dryer sheets, etc) on hand at all times when doing laundry.  I also kept the measuring cups the detergent came with, along with a shelf lined with wax paper so it was easy to clean up the spills and drips that are sure to happen over time when using liquid detergent.  Then I was sent a bag of Dropps (Dye and Scent Free) to try from Mom Select (a while back) and my laundry experience changed forever!

Laundry is so easy and hassle free now, I simply load my laundry into my washing machine, grab a Dropps pac, toss it in, close the door and start the laundry.  The great thing about these is that they are safe to use in a high-efficiency washer (which I have) as well as a normal washer.

On top of that, there is very little packaging, no mess, and the ingredient list is VERY short: Laureth – 7 (Plant derived + biodegradable cleaning agent), Polyoxyethylene (20) oleyl ether (Plant derived + biodegradable cleaning agent), IPA (Processing agent), Hexylene glycol (Processing agent), Agua (water)!  All great things in my book. 

On top of that, I was comparing the prices at my local grocery store, and even when my normal brand of liquid detergent was on sale, these were a little cheaper.

Dropps come in 20, 42 or 80-load bags (there are 20 little packs in the bag, and each one dissolves completely as it cleans, so there is no messy residue and only a small plastic pouch to throw out) and are available in Fresh Scent, Scent + Dye Free, Baby (Scent + Dye + Enzyme Free).

ABOUT US

They were the best of times. They were the worst of times.
The time was the early 80s. New Wave was on the radio. MTV came to cable TV. And those big chunky sweaters were all the rage. We should know, we made the chunky yarn at our very own cotton mill just outside Philadelphia. Yep, those were good times. Except of course, if you were the sweaters. Because every time we washed them, the harsh detergents and rough laundry routine made our sweet yarn all yellowed and stretchy.

Necessity is the mother of clean clothes
What we needed was a formula that could keep fabrics looking better, longer. So we removed the enzymes to keep the fabrics vibrant and soft (and to prevent their fibers from breaking down.) The result? An innovative formula with a split personality: tough on dirt, but gentle on your favorite garments. We knew we were onto something great... but it was only the beginning!

Clean. And pretty darn convenient, too.
With all the stuff we took out of this new detergent, we knew we had a small wonder on our hands. Which got us thinking, “What else can we make smaller? ” Then we thought the last thing moms needed was another huge drippy, sticky jug of detergent to deal with. So we put all the cleaning power in small, convenient, dissolvable pacs. Each is pre-measured to make laundry down-right fool-proof. You just drop ‘em in the laundry. Voila! Dropps was born. An idea that proved to be so smart, the leading consumer publications (did someone say Oprah?) and moms couldn’t stop raving about us. And who doesn’t love flattery!

Saving the earth, one wash at a time.
A funny thing happened on the way to the laundry room. We quickly discovered the whole Dropps movement is great for the planet. (Yay!). Remember, we’re phosphate-free, chlorine-free and NPE-free, too! And talk about a smaller footprint! We use less water, use way less plastic, take up less space, cost much less to ship and leave tremendously less mess in our landfills. You’ll agree... every pac counts!

And to think, we started out trying to save some clothes... and it looks like we’re helping to save something even larger.

Enjoy
