While there are some people that actually enjoy doing laundry, if that’s not you, it doesn’t have to be a total task and a half!
Laundry is never ending. While you may finally get through the weeks’ worth of washing, the reality is, that tomorrow the hamster wheel of washing will start again.
Whether you like to do your washing all at once or as you go, having the right products and laundry set up can literally wash away the everyday hassles of laundry.
New start up re·stor has launched an innovative line of water-less Laundry Detergent Sheets in a bid to inspire a new way of cleaning amongst Australians that’s not only better for the planet but better for you too.
re·stor Co-Founder and sustainability advocate, Renee Lee shares how you can go from loathing to loving your washing by simply switching to laundry detergent sheets.
Switching to laundry sheets will save you time, money and the madness!
If you’ve ever spilled laundry powder or liquid, you’re guaranteed to love the mess-free properties of these genius pre-measured laundry sheets.
With re∙stor Laundry Detergent Sheets, simply take a sheet from the drawer-style box and pop it straight into the washing machine barrel with your dirty washing. They have all the convenience of laundry capsules/pods without the unnecessary plastic or hefty price tag.
For large loads add two sheets and for large, extra dirty loads (namely after kid’s sport), use three. Save time on adding softeners, whiteners and brighteners and other nasty chemicals, by substituting your products for this hard-working concentrate instead.
Laundry sheets are not only perfect for busy Mums with little ones around whose hands seem to get into everything, but they are equally appreciated by the tweens and teens in the house who never seem to know how much laundry liquid or powder to use or exactly which compartment to put it in – no matter how many times you may have told them.
Doing laundry doesn’t need to be expensive!
In Australia, the cleaning industry alone ships the equivalent of 24 Olympic sized swimming pools (60 million litres of water) around the world every year to reach supermarket shelves.
This means, the majority of cleaning products you might be purchasing can sometimes be up to 95% water.
One way to instantly get what you’re paying for is to look for concentrated products that offer ingredients that actually do the work instead of paying for products that are predominately water.
As well as this, the most cost-effective product may not always appear to be the cheapest from the outset.
While marketing and advertising methods might tell us it’s a great sale, it’s important to look at the cost per wash. This is the best way to determine whether the sale price is actually the best deal or whether you can save by buying more or switching to an alternate brand.
Each box of re·stor’s laundry sheets has 60 sheets, which is the equivalent to 1.8KG/L of traditional laundry powder or liquid.
The best way to work out the value of this is through understanding the average Australian household completes 60 washes every 24 weeks. With the re·stor Laundry Detergent Sheets priced at $14.00 a box, this means, depending on the family size of course, you could be doing a year’s worth of washing for just $28.00!
Not only are water-free products great on your hip pocket, they are also better for the environment.
Washing isn’t all bad on the environment if you’re doing it the right way
re·stor’s 100% dissolvable, plastic-free and compact Laundry Detergent Sheets are not only safe for families using hypo-allergenic and naturally derived ingredients, but they are great for the environment too.
Currently, the cleaning industry is producing more than 53 million single-use plastic laundry and cleaning bottles every year with sadly only 37% of this recycled on average.
re∙stor Laundry Detergent Sheets hope to change this by offering a product that is 100% dissolvable and packaged in a 100% recyclable box – no plastic whatsoever!
Of course, all of this would mean nothing if the product didn’t actually work. re·stor’s powerful naturally derived ingredients mean it’s safe for the whole family but tough on stains.
But don’t just take our word for it, the product has received a total 4.5/5 star rating in a survey on cleaning effectiveness from more than 150 people and has a 5 star rating on Product Review.
Laundry while traveling? Take the stress out of this too
While these highly concentrated laundry sheets make washing a breeze at home, the same can be said while on the go. Given they are a “dry” concentrate it’s super easy to put a few in a sealed container or bag and take them with you whether you’re off to a dreamy airbnb or camping with the whole family.
They won’t spill in your bag and taking them with you will save you having to buy a whole new bottle of laundry product once you’ve arrived.
re·stor’s gentle but effective formula is also perfect for handwashing. Just dissolve ½-1 sheet in a sink or bucket with water. This makes travelling with the little ones much easier, especially washing bibs or clothing everyday.
