Compostable Packaging

This product is packaged or shipped in materials that can be composted in home systems or industrial facilities. Certain materials may be better fit for industrial facilities than backyard composting systems. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted. Industrial facilities may not exist in your area.

Cruelty Free

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

End of Life

  • The Dropps pod membrane is a biodegradable, water soluble film made of polyvinyl alcohol. When the film dissolves and enters the water stream in microparticles, micro-organisms that commonly exist in nature break down the PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) to water and carbon dioxide. As many as 55 species of micro-organisms (including bacteria, yeasts and fungi) that are naturally present in water and soils are capable of breaking down PVA! Research has shown that in river water, PVAs take no more than 1 month to break down into their component parts.
  • Biodegradable product formula


  • Dropps has been a leader in the eco-friendly laundry detergent world since 2008, when their laundry pods received the EPA Safer Choice certification! Safer Choice helps consumers, businesses, and purchasers find products that perform and are safer for human health and the environment. To qualify for the Safer Choice label, a product must meet EPA's Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human and environmental health criteria!

      Hi Elisa, you can definitely use these pods in a machine with prewash. Just be sure to place the pod in the drum of the machine!

    Great organic alternative

    I bought these because sometimes you just want to help with the softness on certain items without using harsh chemicals. These are wonderful.

    a good fabric softener option

    bkara16 (verified owner)

    Almost all of my clothing is hung outside on a line year round so I was glad to find these to add to the washer and not the dryer. It does a great job of softening the clothes on the line. I did notice a difference in the really stiff jeans in particular. The scent is very light, even when I take the clothes out of the washer before drying them and I use the same scent in the laundry pods so I thought it would be a little more noticeable.

      Hi, Emily! You can toss these pods into the washer like a regular laundry pod- the fabric softener is specially formulated to work in this way! A true two for one 🙂
