Tell me more about these Eco Sheets
These Laundry Detergent Eco Sheets are small, flat, dehydrated sheets that are about the same size as your hand. We know what your first question will be – do they clean as well as other laundry detergents? And yes, they do! We tried them out ourselves and they’ve been a big hit with everyone here. In fact, we would even argue that they’re better than the normal detergents we’ve been using!
Not only are these powerful Eco Sheets great at cleaning your laundry but they’re also:
- Vegan and gluten-free – meaning almost anyone can use them
- Cruelty-free – is animal test-free
- Greywater and septic safe – they meet the standards for septic and greywater as they are concentrated, low-sudsing and completely bio-degradable
- Hypoallergenic – they’re safe for sensitive skin
- 100% bio-degradable – both the sheets AND the packaging
How do I use them?
These Eco Sheets literally couldn’t be any easier to use. They work in all washing machines, HE washers included. For top-load washers place the sheet inside the washer on top of the clothes. For front-load washers, you can either place the sheet in the detergent dispenser or pop it inside on top of your load. The sheets quickly and easily dissolve in both warm and cold water – so much so that you can even get the same powerful cleaning results if you use them to hand wash clothes - simply dissolve one in the water first!
For a normal size load (or ¾ of a drum) use one full sheet. Use half a sheet for a medium load (or ½ a drum) and if you’re washing a full drum or particularly heavily soiled clothes, you can use two sheets.
They really couldn’t be any more straightforward.
How are the Eco Sheets more environmentally friendly than normal detergents?
Like we’ve already said, the Eco Sheets completely dissolve in water – so there’s no mess or waste there. That leaves the packaging. Well, they’re packaged in 100% biodegradable cardboard and ink. They’re not big and bulky like other laundry detergents and they’re completely free of plastic. If you’re composting the packaging, you should expect it to biodegrade in about 3 months depending on the environment. Or, if you’re not a composter, you can simply chuck it in the recycling with the rest of your cardboard. Zero waste and total satisfaction.
Unfortunately, not all laundry waste is like this. It’s believed that over 700,000,000 plastic jugs - from laundry waste alone - end up in landfills and oceans each year. That’s a disturbingly high amount and we must act now, together, to reduce this number (as well as the amount of all other plastic waste in general!).
