I compared the top 8 laundry detergent sheets. Here’s what I found.

I’ve never liked those big, heavy, plastic jugs of laundry detergent. They’re over-priced, you’re paying mostly for water, and they just end up in landfill. This is why I switched to laundry detergent sheets as soon as they hit the market. They’re lightweight, easy to use, cheap, and most importantly, they’re much better for the environment.

But not all laundry detergent sheets are the same. Some are cheap, effective, and prove they care about the world by giving back, while others are five-times the cost of your average detergent and do as little to look after the environment as most old brands.

To make sure I got the best one, I bought all the laundry deterget sheets I could find and compared them against each other. Here’s what I found.

Best Laundry Detergent Sheets: Earth Breeze—9.57/10

What I love:

  • Cheapest price per load
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Money-saving monthly subscription
  • Top performer with colors and whites
  • Charitable contributions on all purchases

What could improve:

  • They lack the prestige associated with some legacy brands
Earth Breeze Review

Earth Breeze gets the #1 spot on my life because they’re just fabulous in every way that really matters to me.

Firstly, they just work really well on all my laundry. My white load came out sparkling clean (I honestly didn’t expect that cheeky little bit of gravy to come out) without the need to soak them in any prewash. And the colours came out of the machine as bright and as vibrant as when I put them in.

I also love the price! They’re just $0.33 per load (I just bought one packet so I could test them), but when I joined their subscription program, they cost just $0.20 per load. If I’d been using Earth Breeze instead of Tide for the last 3 years, I would have saved literally hundreds of dollars (Tide is $0.25 per load).

Speaking of Tide, one thing that I always struggled with was lifting those big, heavy, plastic jugs — especially when they were brand new! I’m not a weakling but after spending an entire day playing with my son, the thought of dragging that huge bottle out of the cupboard to the top of the washing machine made me want to crawl back into my glass of wine 🙂 I didn’t have this problem with Earth Breeze. Their laundry detergent sheets aren’t 70% water so they weigh less than a slice of bread! It really makes life easy.

As well as all this wonderful stuff, Earth Breeze works in all kinds of washing machines, their packaging is just cardboard so you can put it in your compost, they’re safe on sensitive skin, carbon-neutral, cruelty-free, vegan, and surprisingly, gluten-free!

I think my favorite thing about them has to be all the good social work they do. They donate laundry sheets to homeless shelters, they donate 1% of their profits to sustainability charities, and they’re actively working to help improve the world. I read just the other day about how they helped a group of women in Africa plant a shea tree plantation so they could start selling shea butter and lift themselves out of poverty. It’s just really nice to know that my purchases are doing good in the world.

If you want a laundry detergent sheet that gets sparkling results in all kinds of machines, is light and simple to use, is most likely cheaper than what you’re currently using, and is really wonderful for the environment, go get yourself some Earth Breeze.

Runner Up: Tru Earth—7.41/10

What I love:

  • Eco-friendly packaging
  • Lightweight
  • Safe for people with sensitive skin

What could improve:

  • Far more expensive than Earth Breeze
  • Colors came out faded
  • Not as many social contributions
Tru Earth Review

The #2 spot on my list was harder to decide on than #1 because all the other laundry sheets do well in some areas and do poorly in others.

I ended up choosing Tru Earth in the #2 spot because while they’re nearly twice the cost of Earth Breeze, they’re the only other laundry detergent sheet that helped make the world a better place. While that might not matter to you (and that’s 100% ok if you care more about performance or weight or some other thing), it really felt good knowing that my Earth Breeze purchase was doing some good in the community and so I wanted to support companies that did that.

So, Tru Earth does all the basic things that you get with Earth Breeze. They’re cruelty-free, vegan, work in all kinds of washing machines, and are super lightweight.

While they did an excellent job on my white clothes, they left my colors looking a little faded and washed out.

But, they are expensive. They cost $0.40 per load. While $0.20 per load more than Earth Breeze might not seem like much, when you add it up over an entire year, that’s hundreds of dollars you could be spending on holidays or new clothes or even just putting into your college fund. Every cent counts.

They’re also a little cagey about giving back to society. They like to make a big show about how good they are for the environment, but unlike Earth Breeze, they only donate laundry sheets to people in need when you purchase a full subscription. That means that my one-off purchase to test them didn’t make any difference to the world, and that made me kind of sad.

This means that while they’re an OK product and DEFINITELY easier to use than my old Tide jugs, you can get cheaper laundry sheets that make more of a difference to the world if you use Earth Breeze.

If you’d still like to know more about them, you can have a look at their website here: Tru Earth.

Bronze Medal: Sheets Laundry Club — 6.90/10

What I love:

  • Zero-waste packaging
  • Easy to use
  • Works in all machines

What could improve:

  • No charitable contributions
  • Poor performance on whites

I really wanted to like Sheets Laundry Club. I think their plain cardboard packaging is so cute. But, I just didn’t like them.

Their performance on my colors was fine. It wasn’t worth gushing about to my neighbours, but it also wasn’t the worst performer on this list. But, my whites were a different story. They just came out kind of grey… It’s hard to explain. But you know when you see a shirt that looks like it’s been owned for 2 years and has just lost it’s shine? Well, that’s what I got with Sheets Laundry Club.

They do all those basic other things that Earth Breeze and Tru Earth do, including being safe on sensitive skin, working in most washing machines (to a certain degree), and being cruelty free and vegan.

They cost less than Tru Earth (at $0.28 per load), but they’re down at #3 because they don’t do any kind of social work. They don’t help their suppliers be carbon neutral, they don’t donate sheets to people who are doing it tough, and they don’t support less fortunate people.

If they were the only laundry detergent sheet on the market, they’d be far better than the big plastic bottles all over the supermarkets, but when Earth Breeze is cheaper, performs better, and does more for the environment and the rest of the world, I can’t recommend them.

Other Laundry Detergent Sheets

I checked out five other laundry strip products to see what kinds of value and services they offered. Here are the brands that didn’t make it into the top three but are still worth mentioning.

4. Kind Laundry—6.55/10

Kind Laundry isn’t the worst detergent brand you could buy, and it makes a reasonable alternative to the options above, if you need an alternative for some reason. 

They provide their laundry detergent sheets in smartly designed packaging that’s both waste and plastic free. Kind Laundry makes laundry detergents containing only five plant-based ingredients, and you can choose from liquid or powder detergent as well as sheets. 

They charge the same price as Earth Breeze at $0.33 per load for a one-time purchase, but when it comes to subscription discounts, Earth Breeze has them beat by $0.08 cents per load. Kind Laundry charges $0.28 per load with their subscription service, as opposed to Earth Breeze’s $0.20 per load. 

Kind Laundry is #4 for two reasons.

First, they offer free shipping only with their subscription service, so if you purchase a package of their laundry detergent using a one-time purchase in order to test it out, you’ll have to pay shipping fees. In my experience, people only make testing their product hard if they have something to hide, so this doesn’t sit well with me. 

Second, while they claim to care about the environment, they do nothing to back up that claim. They neither donate percentages of their profits to environmental initiatives and organizations, nor do they spend money on reducing their carbon footprint. 

There’s a lot of talk on their website about saving the environment, so it’s odd that they’re not actually doing anything about it. 

5. Well Earth—6.31/10

Well Earth may sit at #5 on my list, but as far as I’m concerned the last four entries on this list could be placed in any order. They each offer some of the same features that Earth Breeze does, but they really slack off in other areas. 

Their positive features mirror other laundry detergent strips on this list. Their laundry detergents are safe for sensitive skin, will work in your washing machine no matter what type of machine you use, and are also cruelty-free and vegan. 

Although they charge $0.52 per load if you make a one-time purchase and $0.48 per load if you sign up for their subscription services, the fact that they offer free shipping on all orders almost makes up for it. 

However, there’s no reason for you to choose Well Earth because the top three recommendations on this list also offer free shipping and they aren’t as expensive. 

6. Beyond Laundry Detergent Sheets—6.15/10

It was difficult for me to rank Beyond Laundry Detergent Sheets. 

Just like every other laundry detergent provider on this list, this detergent is safe for those with sensitive skin, it works in all washing machine types, and it’s vegan and cruelty free. They even offer scent options. 

They have the cheapest one-time detergent purchase price on this list. Beyond charges $8.99 for 32 laundry detergent strips, which translates into $0.28 per load. This makes them even cheaper than Earth Breeze. 

Of course, there’s a reason it’s in sixth position on this list even though it’s so cheap. They don’t offer free shipping with any purchases and there’s no subscription service, so there’s no way to get a discount on your detergent. In this case, there are other laundry detergent manufacturers that sell their detergents for a cheaper price if you sign up for their subscription service.

Of course, I could have bumped Beyond Laundry Detergent Sheets a few spots higher on the list, but the reason it’s ranked so low is because I figure that their “no free shipping” policy means that they aren’t concerned with providing laundry detergents at a real value to the consumer. 

7. Space White—5.92/10

The reason I’ve ranked Space White so poorly is, to put it plainly, they haven’t gone out of their way to create a competitive laundry detergent sheet. 

While they provide all the other basic features other manufacturers on this list do (zero-waste packaging, safe for sensitive skin, works in any washing machine, plant-based ingredients), you won’t find any features that set them apart. 

They charge a mid-range price of $0.44 per load, but their subscription price is a bit deceptive. They offer a discount on your first purchase with the subscription service, but you’re charged the full price for each subsequent purchase of their detergents.

To make it worse, the only time they offer free shipping is if you make a purchase over $75. 

Honestly, the fact that they even consider this pricing to be a discount is a bit insulting, and it’s the reason they’re so far down my list.

8. Clean People—4.80/10

I would have liked to be a fly on the wall when Clean People were brainstorming their product launch. I imagine it went something like this: 

“Bob, are you telling me that we’re going to charge two times more than most of our competitors, fivefold more than the industry leader, we’re not going to provide any subscription discounts, and then make some vague claims that we’d like to help the environment but then do absolutely nothing to back those claims up?”

“Yes, Susan, that sounds about right.” 

“That sounds awesome! Let’s do it!”

They charge $1.03 per load, which is insane when compared with Earth Breeze’s cost per load, and it makes no sense at all that they don’t offer any subscription discount. 

Don’t waste your time or money. If you use Earth Breeze you can save $0.83 per load, which may not seem like a lot but is a significant saving.

Wrapping It Up

I reviewed the best eight laundry detergent sheets being sold on the market today and the best of these detergents is Earth Breeze

They have the least expensive laundry detergent sheets (which cost only $0.20 per load) and offer free shipping on every order. Their detergents are also safe to use on sensitive skin, will work in any washing machine, as well as in hot or cold water, and are both vegan and cruelty-free. 

Even better, every time they sell a package they donate 10 detergent sheets to charity, and they donate 1% of their profits to great nonprofit organizations. AND they go to great lengths to make sure their manufacturing and shipping process, as well as their offices, are 100% carbon neutral. 

If you’re looking for laundry detergents that will meet all your needs, while also being eco-friendly and actively contributing to social initiatives to make the world a better place, Earth Breeze is your best bet.
