Frequently Asked Questions

Simple Living Eco sheets are simple and effective to use. If you have any questions regarding our sheets or your account, read our answers below.
  1. Are subscriptions required?
    No you are not committed to a subscription. All of our products are available as a one time purchase. You can choose to join if you wish, although signing up does save you £££.

  2. Do the sheets work in cold or hard water?
    Yes our sheets have been formulated to dissolve in cold water and also work well in hard water.

  3. How are your sheets better than your competition?
    Competing pods and liquids consist of 60-90% water. When you’re buying liquids, you’re paying for mostly water, and the transportation of that water. Our process extracts the water, leaving behind a concentrated sheet of natural detergent.

  4. What are the ingredients?

    Water (extracted during manufacturing), naturally derived surfactants from coconut oil, polyvinyl alcohol, natural essential oil (Fresh Linen)

    Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) is an extremely common binding agent (often used in contact lens solutions and eye drops), which we use to create our instantly dissolving detergent sheets.

    It is completely safe to both humans and aquatic life, and has been rigorously studied, due to its extremely high usage across a multitude of applications.

  5. Do you test on animals?
    Absolutely not! We are vegan friendly. We use no animal byproducts and never test any of our ingredients or products on animals.

  6. How can I add/delete products or manage/cancel my subscription? You can email us or chat with us online, but you also have full control. When you make your purchase, your online account will be set up. Inside your account, you have the control. You can add or delete products.

  7. How do I use the sheets?

    For heavy/family loads of washing, we'd suggest using two sheets, whilst for smaller loads, one will do the job.

    Simply add the sheet/s directly into the drum and wash as usual adding fabric conditioner in the normal way if also using. A more Eco way to soften your clothes would be to use white vinegar. 

  8. Where do you ship from?
    We send all of our goods from the Yorkshire countryside.

  9. Do I need to pre-treat stains?
    Yes we would recommend treating your stains as you would with any other detergents.

  10. Is there a fragrance to your sheets? Our laundry sheets carry a light, naturally derived scent which results in a far more neutral smell to your wash when compared to mainstream detergents.

  11. We have a lot of information about what makes detergents 'smell fresh' here, but in short, it's often a concoction of chemicals, many of which are toxic. Worse still, manufacturers are not legally obliged to disclose all the ingredients that make up their fragrance!

    If you then wear the garments washed in these chemicals, you are directly ingesting them.

  12. Can your sheets be used to hand wash clothes?
    Absolutely. Depending upon the condition of the garments to be wash, we'd usually recommend one sheet. This will instantly dissolve in the water.
    For those with sensitive skin, you will find our sheets much less harsh on your hands than ordinary detergents.

  13. Where are your sheets made?
    We are based in South Yorkshire and currently have our formula ethically manufactured in Europe but will be manufactured here in the UK soon. Make sure you follow us to keep up to date.

  14. Are your sheets safe for septic tanks?
    There are no septic safety concerns anticipated with use of this product, if used as directed in a properly functional septic system.

  15. What is your return policy?
    We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you are not, for any reason, satisfied please get in touch with our team and let us make it right.

  16. Are your sheets better for the environment?
    Yes, 100% better. Our detergent sheets are free of phosphates, free of chlorine bleaching agents, free of palm oil, free of animal products and contains no artificial colourings. Our sheets dissolves completely in water and transfers the full washing power to your laundry, without the toxic chemicals.

  17. Are your sheets Bio or Non Bio?
    Our sheets are classed as Non Bio simply because they do not contain any enzymes.
    Non-biological laundry detergents offer the same great cleaning power of their biological counterparts, but without the enzymes.

  18. Have your sheets been tested?
