O.K. you're right, this blog is supposed to be about food, eating and other food related issues. Well, this isn't quite a food related issue but I am trying to be a little bit "greener" wherever I possibly can. I found a really great laundry product that helps me be green. The product is called Dropps. They are premeasured laundry detergent (not sure if it really is a detergent) liquid pacs. They are great because they create much less garbage than those huge laundry detergent bottles that I used to buy. I also find that one small pac cleans any size load. Even though the package says to use two pacs for a large load, I just use one. The clothes come out great. I even got my mother hooked on these Dropps. I only wish they were available in more stores. The only place I have found them so far is at my local Walmart (believe it or not). My mom actually sent away for them from the company. She liked the idea of doing that because now she has 12 packs of 20 liquid pacs and it will last her "forever" she says. She ordered them yesterday and they were delivered to her door today! Since she ordered 12 packs she got -- free shipping!!
Another really great thing about Dropps for me is that they take up hardly any room in your laundry area and they are very light weight. I always hated going to BJ's and having to buy a huge bottle of laundry detergent. I had to make sure I had a visit to my chiropractor scheduled for the next day. No joke!
So, if you want to try something that is good for the environment and good for your back, please give Dropps a try. Their website is http://www.dropps.com/. They are sold in plastic pouches. I haven't seen them in any of our local grocery store chains but I am going to start asking for them. If you find them anywhere besides Walmart, please let me know.
