Using environmentally friendly products that are not tested on animals are a huge priority for me. Dropps laundry and dishwasher pods fit both of my criteria!
Dropps has been around for a while, but I only recently learned about them and I am so glad I did. While I do use another brand of pods for my dishwasher, I had never considered using pods at all for my clothes – but Dropps was something I knew I needed to try.
If you have not heard of Dropps they are an eco-friendly business that changed up dishwasher and clothing cleaners to be easier and more environmentally friendly.
The best part is that their products are cruelty free – meaning they never test on animals!
They have a great selection of products for your laundry and dishes including:
- Laundry detergent pods
- Fabric softener pods
- Oxi booster pods
- Dish detergent pods
- Laundry bags
- Wool dryer balls
Several items are available in several scents like lemon, orange and lavender. There is also a sensitive skin option for those that need a little extra laundry care.
Dropps Laundry Detergent Pods
Dropps laundry pods are small and clear and you just throw them in with your wash. I used 1 pod per load and have to give a big shout out to the cleanliness of my clothes! If you are doing heavier or larger loads – you may have to use 2 pods.
My clothes – even the ones with puppy paw prints came out amazingly clean!

Dropps Dishwasher Pods
Similar to the laundry pods – the cruelty free dishwasher pods kicked but at cleaning my greasy gross dishes.
Not sure how they do it, but these pods just work. My plates filled with the stickiest muck came out super clean – my normal pods have trouble even doing this many times.
Where To Find Dropps
While they are available on Amazon – we always recommend buying right from the retailer! Because we like to encourage you to “shop small” for all of your pet needs – we hope if you decide to order Dropps you will choose their website over a big box retailer!
I am going to be honest, when I first learned about Dropps I thought it was going to be a bit too expensive which would have been an issue since money is tight these days.
But, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that that with the 240 load pod box I would be spending about 20 cents per load! Yes, a bit more expensive than the liquid detergent I am currently using, but less expensive than some leading brands pods. The trade off for not having a big plastic bottle is worth the few pennies more I will need to pay.
Dropps Pod Materials
The Dropps pod is a clear pod made from water soluble polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) which means it will easily dissolve in water. I tested it in both hot and cold water and the pod entirely dissolved in both case!
The reason I never used actual laundry pods before Dropps was because I had always heard that the pods never really disintegrated. I did a lot of research into laundry pods before my daughter went off to college in the hopes that I could send her with them to make her laundry easier and the lack of the pods dissolving were a big issue on college campuses so I avoided them.
Now – I have something I can send to her that will work as they should!
Dropps Shipping & Storage Packaging
Dropps pods arrived in a 100% recyclable box! You can also compost it if you are into that as well!
Best part is that the box is not only what they ship the product in but is also what you can store your pods in making it pretty versatile and of course eco-friendly.
How Dropps Helps Animals!
First and foremost is the fact that Dropps does not and will not ever test on animals. That alone is a huge commitment!
Their products are also not made with any animal byproduct ingredients making it perfect for our vegan readers.
Dropps also has a partnership with Oceana, an advocacy group that focuses on ocean conservation. With so much plastic and garbage ending up in our oceans, the Dropps partnership is focused on educating consumers about how the use of plastics is a big contributor to the damage being done to our oceans.
Changing our daily use can help keep the ocean clean for the animals that reside there. With species like turtles, sharks and so many others being at risk – every opportunity to educate the public is needed.
Thank you Dropps for doing your part.
I am in love with this brand.
They did not pay me to say this – I am saying it because they not only make an amazing product, but they are helping our planet in so many ways.
To top it off, I could not find any negative comments about them anywhere! Every review was positive and talked about clean clothes and dishes that sparkled – so Dropps just works – and cares and that to me makes me want to be a lifelong customer.
