Review & Giveaway: Dropps

I recently had the chance to try out Dropps laundry detergent.


Dropps liquid laundry pacs are low sudsing, and perfect for HE washers. They have much less waste than liquid detergent bottles, and are biodegradable, phosphate free, and safe for septic tanks.

What I liked best about them is that they are premeasured for no mess, with biodegradable plastic kind of like a dishwasher pac. I can just throw it in my washer and not worry about spilling detergent everywhere. This is another laundry product that's great if you use the laundromat or share a washer & dryer living in an apartment!

I ended up using them on the little one's laundry. Her clothes came out clean, and I didn't have to worry about Dropps irritating her skin. I wasn't sure at first that one pac would do the job, but sure enough, even with older washer, it did!

One 20 load package costs about $7.00, about the same cost as Dreft. They also make a special version of Dropps for baby clothes too, so if you are worried about the version I tried on baby clothes, you can try that kind instead.

Win it! One lucky reader will win a 3 month supply of Dropps! To enter, tell me which scent you'd like to try, and about how many loads of laundry you do every week.

As always, my subscribers or followers get another entry!

Those look really neat! I have never heard of those before. They would really help out when my kids do laundry. They always use too much laundry soap. We average two loads of laundry a day so I really do not like them using too much soap and wasting it. The fresh scent sounds nice. I really do not like some detergents that have strong flowery smells.

Lauren said...

I'd try the scent & dye free b/c I have sensitive skin. We currently do probably five loads a week, but that will likely double when the new baby arrives & we start to cloth diaper!

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

sent and dye free...we do about 20 loads a week.

I have just begun to look at these and wonder about the plastic breaking down and if it actually clogs up anything in the long run in the washer- I loved those dishwasher packs and found that some do not toally break down and clog up in the olong run in the washing machine

Now that's a bright idea. I would like the fresh scent one. Curious as to how this product smells.

Thanks for the giveaway... We have never tried the "Dropps scent + dye free" version so we would like to give it a try; we have used Dropps before (until the local WalMart stopped carrying it) and the "Fresh Scent" Dropps imparts a light, pleasant fragrance on your clothes; as for our laundry frequency, we wash 3-4 loads in a typical week, a load or two more in the summertime.

I have never heard of this before, but it seems like a very clever idea. I would love to try it!
Fresh scent sound as if it would be my favorite.

cstironkat said...

I would like the scent + dye free since some dyes give me a rash. I do about 8 loads of laundry a week. I would love something that would be this easy.

Sandy said...

I've never heard of that detergent, but sure like the sound of it. Long ago there was a brand shaped like hockey puck, but it went by the wayside. Very handy. Hubby has sensitive skin and so I've been using one of green non detergent soaps, this sounds like it might work ok for him.

I think I should probably go with dye free b/c of his sensitivities. Normally I do about 8-9 loads a week.

Sandy
Heck, looks like it would be a good thing to throw in the suitcase, small and easy instead of buying one of those little boxes when I get wherever it is I'm going.

lisagee1234 said...

luv 2 win these as they would really be needed & appreciated here at my house!

Thanks for the chance to enter.
