When it comes to laundry detergent sheets, we believe that sheets are better than liquid detergents for several reasons. To simplify the transition from liquid to sheets, we've compiled a guide that includes all the necessary steps and FAQs for using eco-friendly laundry sheets.
Laundry detergent sheets are incredibly easy to use, much like using liquid detergents, and they don't require specific water temperatures. However, for optimal results, follow these steps:
- Load your machine with clothes.
- Add the laundry detergent sheet after loading clothes.
- Select the appropriate water temperature for your washing machine.
How many sheets per load?
- Half Sheet = 1 load = 3-4 lb Clothes
- 1 Sheet = 2 Loads = 6-8 lb Clothes
- 2 Sheets = 4 Loads = 12-16 lb Clothes
Compared to liquid and powdered detergents, measuring the load with laundry detergent sheets is straightforward and mess-free. If your clothes are heavily soiled, such as after gardening, exercising, or cleaning, you can add more sheets for enhanced cleaning power. For lightly soiled clothes, use a smaller amount of sheets.
|Can laundry detergent sheets be placed in the dispenser drawer?
For better dissolution and stain removal, it's recommended to put clothes in the washing drum first and then add the laundry detergent sheet directly. If you prefer to use the dispenser drawer, shred the sheet before placing it.
|What water temperature should you use?
|Most laundry detergents require water temperatures of at least 60°F (15.56°C) to work effectively. This applies to powders, liquids, capsules, sheets, tablets, and other forms of detergent. While liquid detergents are pre-mixed with water in the bottle, warm water is still needed for proper mixing in the machine.
|Cold Weather Laundry
In colder weather, tap water temperature is lower, affecting the water temperature from home pipes. To achieve the best results, use the "cold" setting in modern washing machines, which uses a mix of hot and cold water to reach 60°F. Laundry detergent sheets dissolve quickly in cold water, allowing effective use in cold cycles.
|Storing Laundry Detergent Sheets
|Laundry detergent sheets can be stored in the provided biodegradable box or another preferred container. However, exposure to moisture might cause the sheets to become damp and melt. To store in damp environments, use a sealed container. Using sheets saves space compared to traditional detergents and reduces plastic waste. Our packaging is biodegradable and can be recycled or composted.
