The Spring Green #22: Dropps Review and Giveaway (Ends 5/9) CLOSED

Saturday, April 24, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I have a metal shelf in my laundry room that used to be full to the brim with huge containers of detergent and softeners. A couple of years ago, when most companies realized that concentrating their products is better for the environment as well as for their bottom line - think of all the weight that needs to be transported, and the space these things take on store shelves! - the situation somehow improved. Switching completely to eco-friendly detergents helped even more.

Imagine pre-measured tablets of detergent - the size of the packs you may use in your dishwasher - that are without harsh chemicals, and 6 times concentrated! Enter Dropps, an innovative liquid detergent that comes in pacs dissolving in water. It works in all types of washers and at all temperatures. Dropps is gentle on your clothes because it does not contain harsh enzymes. And imagine the space saving factor - plus saving energy in transportation, packaging, and so on. It takes 292 stacked stand-up pouches to reach the height of one laundry jug. Now I did not actually measure that because I no longer have laundry jugs at home but it's easy to understand the space-efficiency of Dropps.

Dropps comes in three varieties - fresh scent, scent and dye-free, and baby. You can buy them in several package sizes: from a tiny 2-pac pouch (fresh scent) to 42-load (fresh scent). The scent and dye-free and baby varieties come in 20-count pouches.

I tried the fresh scent, and I have to say it's the ultimate convenience in laundry detergents - toss and go, no measuring, no mess. The scent was pleasant without being overpowering, and the detergent worked fine in cold water. The pouch dissolved completely - yes, I did look for it after the laundry was done.

Last but not least: the eco-friendly benefits of Dropps go beyond its no-waste and small size. Dropps are biodegradable, phosphate-free, and chlorine-free. They were never tested on animals, and all Dropps detergent has been recognized for safer chemistry by the EPA's Design for the Environment Program.

The Giveaway
Dropps are generously giving away a three-month supply of Dropps detergent to a lucky reader of this blog! The winner will receive 3 pouches of 20 pacs (60 total) in their choice of scent.
