Doing your own laundry... and a small gesture for the planet!
by Bora Kurum on Dec 25, 2021
When it comes to changing our consumption habits to improve the fate of our planet, we all agree with the principle! But, even if we all feel like we're doing our part, whether it's bringing our reusable bags to the grocery shop or recycling and composting with our city's system, to make a real difference for the planet, it takes more than that!
Laundry detergent sheets
Each eco-friendly laundry detergent sheet contains ultra-concentrated, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly cleaning power in a tiny, pre-measured sheet of detergent that you just throw in the wash.

Laundry Detergent Sheets Usage:
Top-loading washer: place the sheet inside the washer.
Front-loading washer: place the sheet in the detergent dispenser (tear the tape into small pieces if necessary).
Add clothes and start the washer.
We also recommend placing the Simple Living Eco sheet in the drum before adding your clothes. Simply follow your washing machine manufacturer's instructions and use Simple Living Eco as you would any liquid or powder detergent.
Some newer HE machines use very little water, and it is possible, in rare cases, for the Simple Living Eco sheet to become entangled in clothes before it is wet enough to dissolve completely. Consumers report the same occasional problem with single-dose liquid detergents. Simple Living Eco has the advantage that it can be placed in the dispensing compartment where the flow of water at the beginning of the filling cycle dissolves the tape.
Simple Living Eco is safe for 100% cotton cloth nappies, but we always recommend that consumers follow the specific washing and detergent recommendations of each garment manufacturer. Unlike most branded liquid detergents, Simple Living Eco laundry detergent sheets will not affect wipe absorbency and is hypoallergenic. However, many modern fabric nappies also contain a combination of synthetics and adhesives in their backing structure. Depending on the materials used, Simple Living Eco (and other detergents) may affect the strength and durability of this backing structure.
