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 harsh chemicals.
How many washes do I get per pack?
A 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”.
You can also use our scent booster beads for more of a "washing smell".
If your clothes are particularly dirty or you have a lot of them in the machine, you may like to use a full sheet rather than half.
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 your detergent usually.
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 or very large machines 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!
I've seen other strips on the market and would like to know what makes yours better.
We put a lot of heart and soul into our products, ensuring we have covered all bases when it comes to sustainable product design. We carefully chose our manufacturing partner to ensure a high quality product that works as expected but that also makes a massive difference to the environment. We partner with rePurpose Global who repatriate plastic (thats in our supply china) from the environment on our behalf.

How can I contact you with questions?
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!
Why are they packed in a plastic liner?
The liner used is biodegradable cellulose and can be home composted, we want to make sure your sheets arrive in the best condition, protected from the elements. Please pop in your compost bin or check with your local council if they can be composted in your green bin. We use NatureFlex brand bags.
Where are the sheets made?
They are produced in China, we have no facility in Australia (yet) to manufacture them at this stage. We pack them here in Australia using 100% recycled cardboard, so as to reduce the shipping weight and environmental impact of transporting heavy cardboard from another country.
Why do they only come in packs of 32?
The shipping weight and cardboard content is roughly the same to send 3 x 32 envelopes (3 mths worth of washing) as to create a larger box and send that. Plus the smaller packs can be stored, air tight in your laundry, till you are ready to use the next one.
