Softer with every wash: for fluffier fabrics and comfier clothes

This fabric softener uses natural minerals to add softness without a sticky residue. 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

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.

unscented fabric softener pods

Except for a bit of grit when I open the washer door (after the cycle is complete), they seem to work well. Maybe I'm filling the washer too full. I'll have to keep trying.

Not sure yet…..

I “think” I like it, but can’t tell for certain. I do know that for whatever reason, one pod did not open properly and went to the dryer along with the rest of the wash, and that was kind of a sticky problem easily solved by washing that pant again. It was a 1-time thing, though. I’m not sure if I have noticed a difference in using these pods…..sorry!

Just plain great

I love using unschented fabric softener and these pods are perfect. They do exactly what they are supposed to do and even work well with towels, which I normally don't use softener on. Keep up the good work and great products!

Couldn't Be Easier

I love the convenience of dryer sheets, but my microfiber cleaning cloths and some of my underwear is not supposed to be treated with fabric softener or dryer sheets, and I have been reading how bad dryer sheets are for your clothes. It was complicated to treat them separately. I hope the fabric softener pods will come in the Fresh Start fragrance eventually. (I had bought unscented fabric softener pods so that the scents wouldn't fight with each other, since I bought the Extra detergent in the Fresh Start scent and love it.) It's hard to believe that one little pod will soften a whole load of laundry, but it does. I had bought the little bags to put the pods in, in case they didn't dissolve well, but they have not been necessary to use. These don't work quite as well for static cling as liquid fabric softener or dryer sheets, but it's worth it for the simplicity and the fact that the towels are more absorbent and clothes less "coated."

OOPS

I accidentally purchased the fabric softener, I wanted laundry pods. I usually use dryer sheet but I love the ease of pods so I tried them. The thing I dislike about fabric softener is my towels were not as absorbent, this is not the case with this softener. I have only used them in a few loads so time will tell, but so far so good.

Love it

It works well and I love that there's an unscented option. Everyone in my house has sensitive skin. It doesn't cause breakouts or rashes.
