Softer with every wash: for fluffier fabrics and comfier clothes

This fabric softener uses natural minerals to add softness and scent without sticky residues. For clothes that get better with age and towels so soft you'll be jumping out of the shower.

For Fluffy, Soft Fabrics

Keeps Towels Absorbent

Maintains Athletic Wicking

Helps Reduce Pilling

Good to know...
Our natural, mineral-based fabric softener maintains the wicking performance of athletic wear, and helps towels stay absorbent.

Disclaimer: While we strive to make our packaging 100% eco-friendly, our bulk orders are still a work in progress. Please be aware that while we continue to work on removing these components, bulk shipments will include a plastic bag and tape to avoid damage in transit. We welcome any and all suggestions to improve these methods and appreciate your understanding as we continue to strive for a low waste solution!

What's in our pod

Did you know that it takes one metric ton of rose petals to make just one teaspoon of essential rose oil? Sometimes “all-natural” doesn’t equal “sustainable.” We use a balance of natural and synthetic fragrances for better sustainability.
We use bentonite, a naturally occurring mineral, to increase the softness of fabrics. Bentonite's secret is its extremely fine particles, which form a protective layer on fabrics. This layer not only helps make your fabrics feel softer, it can also make clothes last longer by helping prevent knotting and pilling.
Not all superheroes wear capes. Our pod is made from a water soluble casing called Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), which dissolves upon contact with water and is consumed by microorganisms. We’ve added a bittering agent for added safety for you, your family and your pets.
Sodium chloride (processing aid)*, bentonite (mineral softening agent)*, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) oil (plant- derived fragrance)*, abies sibirica (fir needle) oil (plant-derived fragrance)*, d-limonene (fragrance allergen)*, polyvinyl alcohol film (PVOH) (synthetic water soluble film). *Denotes plant or mineral origin.

A really good clean

We bring nature into our science lab to create our innovative formulas, and we use independent, 3rd party labs to test their effectiveness. Spoiler: they work.

Not your average fabric softener

Our pods make laundry day mess-free and, dare we say, easy.

No Added Dyes

Artificial dyes don't clean or soften. Which is why our pods are naturally free of colors.

Never Too Much

Big bottles make it easy to pour just a little more. Our portioned pods make sure you don't overdo it.

Naturally Protected

Natural bentonite forms a layer on fabrics, protecting fibers and reducing pilling. It's like they get better with every wash.

Mess-Free Cleaning

Our Strong Seal pod technology keeps the active ingredients off your skin and prevents spills. No more sticky bottles or loose powder.

How to Use

Use with detergent

  • First, toss pod into the washer drum.
  • Then, add your armful of laundry
  • Next, choose your wash cycle.

Our powerful little pod will take care of the rest. We promise. (That’s why we have a risk-free trial.)

For best results: use dry hands and don't overfill your machine. After each use, close box and secure the child lock to keep your little ones and pets safe.

New to Dropps and love them!

Although I was already using earth and human friendly products, I grew weary of all the plastic! I recently transitioned to Dropps and absolutely love them and so does my family. Our laundry comes out clean and smells amazing, and I appreciate the scents are not overpowering. I was a little worried at first with the strong scent in the box, but once the laundry is done it mellows out to perfection.

Great, easy to use products

I've been using the regular laundry pods, active wear laundry pods, fabric softener, and drier balls for a few months now. I initially had some problems with the fabric softener not fully dissolving, but then I starting using the ecowash pouches. I recommend using those with the fabric softener. It's so easy to grab a laundry detergent pod and fabric softener pod and throw them in the washer. Even my workout clothes come out clean. Ordering and shipping is fast and easy too. I highly recommend!

Love these Fabric Softener Pods

This is the only fabric softener I will use. Softens cloths without an overwhelming fragrance. The recyclable packaging is why I first started using the Dropps products. Any time I can avoid using plastic containers, I am thrilled.

So far so good

So far the softener has been great. It only stuck on my clothes one time and it came off by rinsing it in the sink. I enjoy the smell and appreciate that I'm not using plastic products.

Once in a while they don't melt away.

These smell great, but we have so much static cling now…. That never happens when I just use dryer balls
