We'd read about this product but we were reluctant to try it until UPS dropped a LARGE BOTTLE of detergent in our hallway (and broke it). So, we figured it was time to rethink our buying habits. We ordered Dropps in 'fresh scent' instead. As we pulled the package (80 loads) out of the box we were shocked at how light it was! No more lugging heavy bottles of detergent around. No more pouring the detergent and cleaning up the dispenser in the washer. Unlike some of the other reviewers we actually like the scent directly from the washer (we don't use fabric softener) and we're a tough customer because we have hard water. But, what's even more impressive is that this detergent cleans our dog's beds and blankets extremely well. Even though our dog is in denial about it.....his bedding DOES get pretty stinky and Dropps cleans it remarkably well.

Pacs are extremely convenient and long lasting, and were a product I felt comfortable using to wash my son's clothes even when he was very young. Be warned though! If it gets too warm where you are storing them they will melt together, and if you try to pull them apart (because no load is big enough for four of these) you will only end up with laundry detergent all over the place.

Flavor Name: Scent + Dye FreeSize Name: 80 LoadsVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
How easy is this. You just take one of the little capsules out of the bag and toss it in the washer. No schlepping with the heavy bottles or boxes, no spilling, no waste. Dropps are as good as any detergent I've ever used, these are scent and dye free, which is nice for sensitive skin, nice for the environment. And they claim they are environmentally friendly because water is not wasted in the manufacture of Dropps and these lightweight little doohickeys don't cost a fortune to transport. Okay. I buy that. And I will buy these. The price is higher than Tide et all, but you get 80 washes. And you're not dragging that two ton "economy size" jug home either.

I remember when my mom did laundry, it was a major effort. She jammed the laundry bags into one of those little shopping carts that she'd trundle five or six blocks to The Washeteria (Brooklym for Laundromat). I quiver with rage because I have to walk about 30 feet down to the laundryroom. Laundry is a thankless task. Let's face it, nobody runs up to you on the street and says, My goodness that white shirt is certainly white and Holy Toledo, those underpants are blinding." And if they do, a) you have made a serious wardrobe faux pax and b) the person is nuts. No husband ever sends flowers because "Gee, this pillowcase is not just clean, honey, it's REALLY clean." Kids don't behave better when you get the stains out of their t-shirts and teenagers don't become human again because their jeans are clean. Anything that makes laundry easier is good. Your time and effort are much better spent on stuff like baking, which is not that tough but people fall all over themselves when you give them home-made chocolate cake. Stick with the big payoff stuff when it comes to effort. And stick with Dropps if you can get them. Really good little things.

I HAVE to save money wherever I can. I sat and figured out that this product costs about fours cents more than the Tide I had purchased per load, BUT does it really? I do not believe anyone actually gets 32 loads plus from a bottle. Most people feel more is better. If you do a full capful, do you get the actual 32 loads from that bottle? If you buy three bottles of Tide and pay $18.00 for the three bottles and you get 96 loads rather than the 80 loads you get with the Dropps pod, then you have saved, but I believe this product is more economical, enviromentally friendly and lighter to haul and easier to store. I am thrilled with this product and it works, I am happy. I believe this product works well and your clothes do not get any residue from soap left behind. I have NO idea what the other person was talking about as far as the smell. The pods leave a clean smell and nothing like perfume, but a CLEAN scent, which is fine. I will continue to purchase this item through subscribe and save and REALLY save!

I live in a tiny studio apartment on the top floor of my building, so I was really excited when I got a sample of dropps in the mail from Bzz Agent to try. They're wonderful! I can fit detergent for as many loads as the regular stuff in a box about 1/4 of the size (and less than a pound!) No lugging big jugs up to my apartment and then trying to hide them under the bed- the dropps can fit right in my laundry basket!

I love that they are better for the environment, while at the same time being super handy and no mess!

The only thing I was a bit dissappointed about was the smell- I couldn't smell the fresh scent at all- so I've decided to buy the un-scented from now on and use fabric sheets to get my "fresh Scent."

Overall- I highly reccomend dropps. Great invention!

Flavor Name: Scent + Dye FreeSize Name: 80 LoadsVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I have become addicted to the pods type of laundry detergent. I was a little hesitant to use a brand of detergent I had never heard of and a little more hesitant when I saw the small pods with a little bit of what looked like water in them, but figured I'd give it a shot. They seem to work just fine! The clothes are clean and that is what I'm looking for. Also, I have had a horrible time with the Tide Pods because they get wedged under the door of my front loading washer and don't dissolve, leaving a blue slimy mess I have to clean out. I have used about half the bag of the dropps detergent pacs and haven't had a single one get stuck. I'm not sure if they just dissolve better/faster or what, but the issue Tide has, dropps does not. I would recommend these without hesitation.

Dropps really are a great deal- since they are pre-measured per load i know that in each box of dropps i will be getting a FULL 20 loads of laundry done (unlike messy, unruly jugs). Plus they are small and convenient and i don't have to worry about finding space for a gigantic jug in my tiny apartment.

Flavor Name: Scent + Dye FreeSize Name: 20 Loads (Pack of 3)
Have been using these for about 6 months now. Starting because I was looking for an environmentally friendly alternative for laundry. Plus I was hoping to take them at their word, no need for fabric softeners etc. I am happy so far.

Have used them at home in my HE washing machine (HE machines require low sudsing HE type detergents). Have also taken them traveling. The laundry is clean with one pouch (it says use 2 for largest/dirtiest loads - I haven't yet and I'd say I push the load limit sometimes)

I have stopped using fabric softener and the clothes are still soft, although as we head into winter now (dryer/colder here in New England) I do notice more static cling than before. Not enough to add softener, but it is there.

I am very happy and will continue to use this product. The only caveats are that...
1 - I do take them at their word to put the Dropps packet in the washer drum first, then the clothes on top of it. (Not in the detergent cup but in the drum) I have never had a packet NOT dissolve yet - home or away)
2 - When traveling it is a good idea to put the packets you are taking in a hard sided container - like a small food storage container.

Flavor Name: Fresh ScentSize Name: 20 Loads (Pack of 3)Verified Purchase
I got my first shipment almost a year ago. All three packages arrived safe and sound. Since then, I put these on subscription because I like them so much! I have never had any broken or leaking capsules. I like them because the bag stands up and doesn't take up much room on my dryer. I just store the extra bags above the washer in a cabinet. Just one dropp cleans a whole load of clothes just fine. I think one time I washed 5 pairs of dirty jeans in one load and I used 2 Dropps for that one -- normal loads though work fine with just a single Dropp. I like the fragrance too but would not mind if it was stronger and lasted longer. I do still use a Bounce Dryer Sheet. Maybe I don't need to but I like Bounce and haven't felt like trying to do my clothes or sheets without it.

Most particularly, I really like not having to clean up spilled laundry detergent when I overload the measuring cup. I also had a tendency to forget to screw down the lid tight on the huge jug and once I accidentally knocked the thing off my dryer. What a mess that was to clean up! I've actually dropped a couple of the Dropps on the floor, too. They just plopped down and didn't break.

The Disolving Dropps work wonderfully for me. I like the fact, too that there is much less packaging waste with this product. I have given samples to several of my friends at work and recommend this product highly.

Flavor Name: Scent + Dye FreeSize Name: 42 Loads (Pack of 2)Verified Purchase
I have a high-efficiency (HE) front-loader made by Whirlpool, purchased in 2009.

I have no argument with this detergent's cleaning ability, and you certainly can't beat the convenience.

BUT: in my Whirlpool front-loader, these pods failed to dissolve more than 50% of the time. Often I found sticky goo adhering to the rubber gasket; twice I found the undissolved pods deep inside the crevice of the door gasket. Even worse, the pods sometimes partially dissolve into fabric, and when this happens, it can ruin the garment. Since you are unlikely to notice that this has happened, you put the garment into your dryer, and the heat bakes the residue in permanently.

When I complained to Dropps, they were sympathetic but seemed puzzled that this could occur. They asked me to return the garments, which they cleaned. Meanwhile, I discovered independently that boiling water poured over damaged garments helped, though it did not solve the problem.

But none of this was terribly convenient, and for a premium-priced convenience product, I rate it as a failure for machines similar to mine.
