What are laundry sheets?

Laundry detergent sheets are a relatively new type of laundry detergent that is taking the world by storm.

They are thin, dissolvable sheets that are made with concentrated detergent and other cleaning ingredients. Laundry sheets are just as effective at cleaning clothes as traditional liquid or powder detergents, but some brands of laundry sheets, such as Simple Living Eco, are much more eco-friendly.

How to use laundry sheets

Using laundry sheets is super easy. Simply pop 1 or 2 sheets (depending on load size and degree of cleaning required) in the drum on top of your clothes and wash as usual. Laundry sheets can be used in any type of washing machine, and even hand washing - simply tear half a sheet and swirl in a bowl of hot water until it dissolves.

Simple Living Eco laundry detergent sheets dissolve in seconds, even in luke-warm water. This means they work just as well with a lower temperature setting on your washing machine.

Do laundry sheets work as well as pods or powder?

Yes, laundry sheets work just as well as pods or powder at cleaning clothes. In fact, some studies have shown that laundry sheets may be even more effective at cleaning certain types of stains, such as grass and grease stains.

Are laundry sheets eco friendly?

Yes, laundry sheets are a much more eco-friendly option than traditional liquid or powder detergents. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Laundry sheets do not require any plastic packaging. Simple Living Eco laundry sheets are packaged just in cardboard which can be composted at home or popped in your recycling.
  • Laundry sheets are typically made with concentrated detergent, which means that you use less detergent per load. This can help to reduce water pollution and save energy.
  • Many laundry sheets are made with plant-based ingredients and are free of harsh chemicals. This makes them a safer option for your family and the environment.
  • Simple Living Eco laundry sheets are also made in the UK, reducing transport emissions. 

Overall, laundry sheets are a convenient, effective, and eco-friendly way to do your laundry. If you are looking for a more sustainable way to clean your clothes, laundry sheets are a great option to consider.
