Dizolve laundry detergent sheets

What is it? Hailing from Canada, this concentrated detergent sheet replaces laundry liquids and powders. Pop one in with your wash and it dissolves in the water.

What makes it susty? While most detergents come in a big heavy box or bottle, Dizolve comes in a little plastic envelope. Less packaging means less waste. Lighter weight means lighter trucks and fewer emissions. Its ingredients are biodegradable and it works in cold water, reducing energy use.

What makes it sexy? Easy it is, messy it’s not. The size and weight of a paperback, a pack of Dizolve fits anywhere and goes anywhere (like to Tahiti, to hand wash your swimsuit). The 20-wash pack weighs orders of magnitude less than a 20-wash box of the leading brand, and is cheaper.

My verdict: The nice people at Dizolve sent me a sample which I used in the wash today. Good thing too, because their logo looks so much like this harsh bleach brand that had I seen it in the shop I would have walked right past. In any event, everything came out as clean and fresh-smelling as it does with the leading detergent brand.

All in all, I’ve got to say BOTH - sexy and susty. (Thanks to the lovely Lauren Stern who suggested we review this product!)

    I love the sound of this. BUT, I want to know if they have also taken into account sensitive skin. My partner is allergic to the heavy metals found in some clothes washing products, meaning we have to use a particular non-bio brand to be safe. Is this product as kind to the skin as it is on the environment? If so, count me in. But I agree that the branding is terrible. Why make it look so aggressive, and so much like the bleach brand? OK, maybe you don’t want consumers to think that it’s an “airy-fairy” product that won’t get anything clean, but surely there’s a happier balance?

    Hi Joanna,

    Thanks so much for getting in touch with your comments above. Firstly, all Dizolve products are non-bio, so are suitable for sensitive skin. We’ve only just launched so the packaging will stay as it is for the time being but it’s really good to have your feedback on it and we’ll certainly bear this in mind.

    I would love to buy these for a four month trip on our boat but can’t find them in the United States. Are you aware of anyway to buy them in the US?

    Hi JoAnne,

    Sadly they don’t seem to be available in the US at the moment. But if you go to http://mydizolve.com you’ll find their contact details, and maybe you can nudge them to consider distribution there! Good luck and enjoy your boating!
