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.

What's in our pod

dye-free • QUAT-free • methylisothiazolinone preservative-free • glutaral preservative-free • phthalate-free • never tested on animals
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 occuring 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.

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

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.

An easy swap you can feel good about

A neighbor told me about Dropps and that not only was it more sustainable for laundry and dishwashing detergents, but also more convenient and the products were excellent quality as well. I decided to give it a try and I will never go back to traditional store bought brands. When the directions say, "use one pod," it really works! Compared to other brands that suggest up to 3 pods per load.

Not sure

I’m not sure I’m noticing a difference in my clothes with the fabric softener. I’ll have to check back in once I’m done using it. As of now. It’s okay.

not great in cold water

I'm glad I had bought the small pouch for the pods- to use when washing in cold water. These fabric softener pods don't fully dissolve in cold-water cycles. I have yet to try them on my sheets and towels, and trust they'll work great in hot water. Other than that- the clothes do come out great and the scent is not overpowering- which is just perfect for me.

Fantastic for Sensitive Skin

I have never been able to use fabric softener because it gives my sensitive skin a rash. However, Dropps fabric softener pods are gentle enough to not aggravate my skin yet still leave my clothes feeling softer and with a light fresh scent.

Sustainability at it's Finest

Glad I was able to find a sustainable fabric softener, there aren't many but this one is great and affordable. Feels nice not getting rid of a giant plastic container.

Replacements

I have been using this product for a while and am pleased with it. Recently received an order that was damaged and contacted the company explaining the damaged product with pictures. My intention was to know if the product could still be used. To my surprise and delight, with no hesitation from the company, a new delivery of product was scheduled! No additional cost and the product originally sent was still useable. Wow. Meant a lot to me for the company to do this. I also use their detergent pods. Great company…great products!

Better for the planet!

Package came in cardboard box, but I wish there wasn't that huge sticker that had the logo and the description, maybe a piece of paper is better? Or even better just print on the box! Very cute packaging, my 64 count split into 2 boxes, but since I live in a more wet climate, I transferred them into a sealable metal box. Every time I open that box I get a huge whiff of the fabric softener, which smells amazing! I put it in that cold water mesh bag, and just put it in every wash. Comes out clean and still has a light scent to it! When clothes are dry, whether they were hung dry or machine-dry, all my clothes are soft to the touch. My box of 64 lasted me over 6 months! (2 loads per week), so now I know how often I should get these when I subscribe :) Definitely doing my part in a zero-waste life, and better for the planet, definitely recommend!
