One of the major disadvantages of New York life is the lack of laundry rooms in apartment bldgs. You either have to pay to have someone pick up your clothes or lug them back and forth from inconveniently located laundromats. In addition to clothes that somehow manage to weigh roughly 75 lbs per laundry bag, there’s the massive and cumbersome bottle of laundry soap. I tried using powdered laundry soaps in college, largely because they were lighter and less likely to spill, but when they failed to dissolve in one wash, I gave up and went back to liquid. 

But liquid detergents are not great for the environment. Even if you choose the greenest laundry liquid you can find in Whole Foods, there is still the fuel it takes to transport a product that is largely water and while most laundry jugs can be recycled the simple fact is very few actually are. 

So give up doing laundry and just earn the nickname Stinky?

Nope. Try Tru Earth Laundry Strips!

Each Tru Earth laundry strip packs ultra-concentrated, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly cleaning power into a tiny, pre-measured strip of liquidless laundry detergent that you just toss in the wash. Its low-sudsing formula works in all types of washing machines, including high-efficiency.

It’s suitable for sensitive skin as it is hypoallergenic but it doesn’t stop there.
