How does the price compare to other brands?
At approx 0.40c per wash, we feel this is comparable to regular laundry detergent. The best part is no plastic, no mess and no waste.
How many washes do I get per pack?
A small pack does 32 washes. How you decide to use it is up to you. Some people love using 2 sheets for more scent of our fragranced variety, others use 1, but half a sheet compares to what most traditional detergents call a “load”.
As an example — For a liquid laundry detergent, if you use a cap full, it actually contains about FIVE LOADS worth of detergent! You might be using 5 times more detergent than you need to be.
How do the strips work?
Other laundry liquid detergents can be up to 90% water. We think it's nuts to send all of these giant shipping vessels half way round the world filled with liquid contained in single use plastic bottles. Our strips use the water that is already going to be used in the machine as they are a dehydrated version of the liquid. The strips easily dissolve in hot or cold water. Simply place them in with your clothes or place it in where you would pour liquid.
Are they ok to use with septic and grey-water?
Many of our customer use in these systems with no issues. Please consult our ingredients list to make your decision though.
Will they dissolve in cold water?
Yes they will completely dissolve in both cold and hot water.
I have very sensitive skin, will these be ok for me?
We have many customers say the strips cause no problems for their sensitive skin, but please consult a physician with the ingredients list to make your decision.
How many strips should I use?
1/2 a sheet for 1 full load. For more soiled loads you may like to use a full sheet. Traditional detergent may mislead you! Liquid detergent bottles are designed to have a large opening or a large scoop. That encourages you to use more than you may really need. Our strips come in a pre-measured amount so you don't use too much.
How long can I store the strips for?
They can be stored for up to 18 months, we suggest keeping them in an air tight container after opening.
Are your strips vegan friendly?
Yes, we use no animal products in our products, nor do we test this on them!

Does you product clean as well as others?
Yes it does, please see our reviews and testimonials for further information.
How much energy/water goes into making your strips?
Our laundry strips are dehydrated, as compressed laundry detergent. The water used during production is about 1.5 times the weight of the strip. So very little water is used during production. They also are not filled out with water or powders to bulk them up. The are small but powerful!
