Save money

These days, every dollar counts —thanks, inflation. Sheets will save you a pretty penny. For less than $17 dollars, you'll get 50 sheets which can be used for up to 100 loads (cut the sheet in half for smaller loads). And check out this price comparison: Tide Pods cost twice as much as Sheets (31 cents a load vs. 17 cents a load). You can even sign up for recurring shipments with Amazon's Subscribe & Save to save an additional 5% to 10%. Set your Sheets delivery to arrive as often as every two weeks to every six months to help save you time, money and head space.

Save your back

Sheets is the solution for anyone who's ever had to lug home a bottle of laundry detergent or a massive container of pods from the market or drag dirty clothes to a laundromat. Sheets weigh next to nothing — each sheet is featherlight making a box of 50 way less than a pound —so you can kiss back and shoulder pain goodbye.

Save space

Can you say serious space saver? One cumbersome plastic container is equal to a dozen boxes of these laundry detergent sheets —it's a no brainer for your pantry storage. It even saves space in your recycling bin.

Easy to use

Toss it in your washing machine. That's it. Okay, you may want to open the box and remove one first, but it's a heck of a lot easier than measuring, dripping and ending up with sticky detergent laden cups you have to rinse out. Just the right amount every time gets into the load — no thinking required and no mess. Use Sheets on cottons, linens, blends and durable synthetics. It's safe for whites and colors, too, and you can use it in hot, cold, hard, or soft water.

As effective as big brands

This detergent more than stands up to its competitors. With more than 14,000 five-stars reviews on Amazon, fans tout Sheets as a "quality soap that cleans like the best bottle brands."

Says one happy customer: "This detergent delivers everything promised. I was struggling with the large liquid detergent containers so I am delighted to have found a detergent that this senior gal can easily lift! The sheets are easy to use — just place one on the bottom of your front loader before putting in the laundry. The clothes came out as clean as they did with liquid detergent. This is my second purchase and I plan to continue using this detergent."

Sheets also gets a thumbs up from reviewers with sensitive skin — the product's formula is made without the ingredients that are the leading causes of skin irritation. They also completely dissolve in water, leaving no residue on your clothes or your bod. This five-star reviewer has been using them for a year and agrees: "I have sensitive skin — react terribly to all Tide products — but I like a little scent in laundry detergent, if possible. The Sheets sheets have a noticeable scent, but it's very mild on the clothes and my skin has done fine."

Helps save the planet

A sweet bonus of switching to laundry detergent sheets is that you're helping to save our planet — one laundry load a time. You can rest assured that the only thing heading to our oceans from your washing machine is biodegradable, FDA-approved, climate-certified and clearly just better. "The box is biodegradable and there is no land-fill plastic jug to toss. Scented or unscented there was no point to keep using laundry soap in those earth-killing jugs when this alternative exists," said one laundry detergent converter. "Every year my family makes one change to a more earth-friendly item. This is a good place to start."

Give em' a try. Once you use them, you won't go back to your old liquid detergent.
