Today, I'm here to help. No, I'm not going to show up on your doorstep and wash, dry, fold, and put away your piles of laundry (I know you were hoping...), but I am going to tell you about a laundry detergent that you might want to try (I'll stop "dropping" hints soon).
Toddlers (and even itty bitty newborns, for that matter) create laundry in monumental proportions. In fact, my husband and I are convinced that our daughter's clothing consists of way more than 50% of the laundry around here. Her level of activity is truly impressive - she's a little athlete, to be sure - and she has the clothing to prove it. We often change her outfit twice or three times in one day due to meals, mud, and mayhem. That's a lot of laundry! And I'm not even counting her PJ's, her sweatshirts and jackets, her socks, and towels/sheets.
Since doing laundry is a fact of life, it only makes sense to try to do it as greenly as possible. dropps has arrived to help parents do just that. dropps laundry detergent creates "happier clothing, easier washing, and a healthier planet."
dropps offers a "deep-cleaning formula" that keeps clothes fresh and is "gentle on the skin." It also is super convenient to use - just toss in pre-packaged little "dropps" and go - "no measuring, no waste, no problem!"
I tried dropps recently and was impressed. I liked the convenience and the fact that I was conserving resources (dropps use "less packaging and less water-per-load" than conventional laundry detergents). I have to admit that I wondered what exactly the "packaging" was made of - it looked like plastic, but it was dissolving in the water so I know it's not. Science geniuses and/or dropps representatives, please do explain this mysterious wonder!
There you have it. A laundry detergent that creates less work for you and that helps you take small steps toward saving the world. Maybe it's not quite as good as having me do your laundry, but it's a step in the right direction. Right?!?
You can buy dropps online or you can search for a retailer near you.
