As a mom of 4 kids, I’m in the market for laundry detergent that is pre-measured, gentle enough to use on baby skin, and eco friendly. Today I’ll be sharing about a products I’ve enjoyed using for over a year that checks all those boxes and is really changing the way people do laundry! I’ve been using Earth Breeze Laundry Detergent Liquidless Eco Sheets and their Eco Dishwasher Power Pebbles. Both are impressive products, with a cool mission you support with each purchase. Let’s dive in and see what makes them unique.
If you prefer a video review, scroll to the bottom to watch my YouTube review. Please know, while I did receive my first box free to try, I’ve since reordered many times on my own dime to continue using these.
This post is sponsored by Earth Breeze. As always, I only work with brands I like and can recommend. When you buy through my links, I earn a small commission at no cost to you.
Why I was intrigued by Earth Breeze Laundry Detergent
Long before I got to try their Liquidless Eco Sheets, these flooded my social media ads. Those dang computer cookies that seem to send ads your way by studying your every thought! Everyone does laundry…but somehow those ads know that stay at home homeschooling families do LOTS of laundry!
When I saw a video of the laundry sheets dissolving in water…I thought that was a really AWESOME idea! The detergent sheet is incredibly minimal, even more so than any pods I’ve used!
Plus, I was intrigued that Earth Breeze boasts NO plastic…and also surprised to see so many 4.5 star reviews (59,000). It got my attention, and I’ll be sharing some reasons why I’ve loved using these!
What makes Earth Breeze “Eco Friendly”?
Earth Breeze’s Laundry Detergent Eco Sheets are small, but the company is making a big impact!
They’ve done away with plastic. I love it!
The packaging is zero waste, biodegradable, recyclable, and requires 94% fewer carbon emissions to transport since there’s no water to bulk it up.
How was this not invented sooner?!?
It’s estimated that the US alone puts about 7 hundred million (that’s right…700,000,000) plastic laundry detergent containers to landfills each year! I’m sad to say I’ve put a few there myself in the past.
While I can’t stop using plastic completely in our modern age…I am trying to use it far less. Simple changes over a lifetime add up! This makes it easy to skip the plastic in one area of my life, and I LOVE that it takes almost no room on my shelf.
Do Earth Breeze Eco Laundry Sheets use Bleach or Dyes?
No bleach, and no dyes. These are also free of parabens, phthalates, and have never been tested on animals.
The pre-measured sheets are easy to use and have a dermatologist-approved formula that removes unnecessary chemicals that cause skin irritation.
What ingredients are Earth Breeze Eco Sheets made from?
According to their website, there are just 8 ingredients for the fragrance free, and 9 for the Fresh Scent to include “essence” (fragrance).
- Primary Alcohol Ethoxylate
- Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate
- Sodium Acetate Trihydrate
- Polyvinyl alcohol
- Polyethylene Glycol
- Deionized Water
- Starch (Corn).
How well do Earth Breeze Eco Laundry Sheets work to get clothes clean?
Every load that I’ve done with Earth Breeze so far has turned out as it should…clean. Except that one day I left my load in the drum for 2 days and had to rewash, yikes! It’s a bad habit and I’m working on it 😉 Please tell me you can relate?
In all seriousness, my clothes look clean, smell clean, and in my opinion these eco sheets do what they are supposed to do.
The loads that I’ve done with the Fresh Scent have a LIGHT, delightful scent straight out of the laundry. Nothing close to the overpowering smell of Tide.
So if you love that type of detergent where you can smell someone’s laundry scent as they walk by, these may not be for you!
How to clean spot stains with Earth Breeze
Sometimes a tough, dirty spot won’t come out with these unless I pretreat. Things like super dirty edges of sleeves, an oil spot, or something with a lot of color like wine or spaghetti sauce. You’ll need to pretreat clothes like you would using any other detergent before washing.
I do this by first rinsing the stain in cold water (hot can set a stain) to get off as much color as possible. Skip this step if it’s an oil spat.
Then I rip a corner off one of the Earth Breeze sheets and set it on the stain. Then, add a few drops of water and rub in. I let this sit for about 10 minutes at least. Then when it washes, the stain has concentrated detergent to loosen it and generally comes right out.
How come there are 30 sheets per box but “up to 60 loads”?
I think most of us, no matter what brand we use, are using too much detergent! So follow the directions carefully to save $$ and to keep clothes from building up gunk on them.
One thing that’s easy to overlook is that an Earth Breeze “load” can be a half sheet. So you’d have to rip the sheet. (I wish they came pre cut because my rips are imperfect every time) But this makes your pack go farther if you are doing a medium sized load.
Why I will probably only get 30 loads from one pack
We have a big family, and I usually wait to run a load till the drum is full-ish. Each time I do a load, I set our clothes in and place 1 full sheet on top of the clothes. Then I start the washer, and shut the lid! That’s it.
For an “extra full” load or a particularly full and dirty load, use 2 sheets.
If you do a “medium” load (about half a drum full), then rip the sheet in half and use less that way. It states this on the back of each pack to remind you.
Do these dissolve in hot and cold water?
I almost always do laundry on cold to save money, and all my sheets have dissolved completely.
With a top loader, I usually start the waterfall going and then drop my sheet in that and within 30 seconds it’s dissolved. Then I add the clothes.
But you can also add the clothes and then put the sheet under the waterfall. I’ve done both ways!
Can you use Earth Breeze Liquidless Eco Sheets in an HE washer too?
These will dissolve in any washing machine, top loader or HE washer. The difference is you’ll fold up the sheet so it fits in the HE washer tray and it will dissolve that way.
Where can you buy Earth Breeze products? Do you need a subscription?
You can buy Earth Breeze directly from the company here on their website .
You can also find them on Amazon but it’s a better deal directly from Earth Breeze.
They offer contract-free, self-managed subscriptions that allow you to cancel anytime and save 40% on your order! You don’t need a subscription to buy, but that’s a BIG discount to miss! I choose the “every 4 month” option and get an email a few days before if I need to push it out.
There’s free worldwide shipping too!
How much does it cost per load of laundry? How does that compare to other brands?
With the 40% savings you get by subscribing to Earth Breeze (shipped out every 1, 2, 3, or 4 months), each “load” comes to about 22 cents (20 cents a load pre tax). That’s if you are getting 60 loads from a pack, by ripping a sheet in half for a “medium” load.
Since I use a full sheet with a full drum of clothes, my cost is 44 cents a load. But, I’d rather do a full load and use more sheets, because that’s going to use less water, less electricity, and be cheaper in the long run.
That’s WAY cheaper than other pods I’ve used, including Dropps pods which at cheapest (after their subscribe and save option and tax) comes out to 34 cents a pod x 2 pods for me. So, 68 cents a load using 2 pods. (It’s recommended to use 2 pods for an XL load).
And, with Dropps there’s now a minimum order to get free shipping (even with subscribe and save), where as Earth Breeze offers free worldwide shipping with any size order!
So doing a little math for you:
- 60 medium loads from Earth Breeze (getting the subscribe and save discount) would cost me $12
- 60 medium loads of Dropps pods (using subscribe and save) would cost me $20.50.
My best guess it that taking out the liquid and creating a super concentrated laundry sheet is all around cheaper to make, store, and ship. And they pass that savings onto us.
Where is Earth Breeze manufactured?
Earth Breeze products are manufactured in China. Their warehouse is in Oregon, and they have a UK warehouse as well.
Do the dishwasher Power Pebbles work?
Ok…excuse my excitement about these…but the dishwasher pebbles are a WINNER! My dishes SPARKLE.
These kind of caught me off guard because I was expecting to review the laundry sheets and they tossed in a couple packs of the Power Pebbles to try for fun.
When I opened the package, I saw each dish pod was about half the size of many I’ve used…uh…ok?
I was skeptical. I wondered if I needed to toss 2 in there? But I resisted the urge and only used 1 Power Pebble.
To quote my husband, “Wow those look really sparkly!” He doesn’t usually have much to say about cleaning products 😉
We were both really surprised these worked so well. Or rather…it sort of made us see our other tablets weren’t giving that sparkle even if they were clean.
Just look at that before and after below!
I’ve also used SO many dishwashing pods before…from chemically Cascade pods to less harsh ones from Dropps, Branch Basics, Ecover, Seventh Generation, and now Earth Breeze. Let the tablets and my photos do the talking!
P.S. if you are looking for a REALLY good set of drinking glasses that come in so many sizes, these French made Duralex glasses are my favorite! They are the ones pictured above.
They stack really well, are thick and sturdy, and perfect for small kids. I own the 5 and 8 oz sizes! Costco also started selling these so you can check there too.Shop Power Pebbles Dishwasher Tablets starting at $28!
I really liked that each tablet had a dissolving biodegradable film on it so no powder touched my hands.
While my other eco friendly dishwashing pod brands seemed to clean the dishes….these leave a sparkle that the others don’t!
I’m really surprised about these and will continue using these in our home.
You can try a 2 pack of the Power Pebbles here for $28 in fragrance free or lemon citrus. To get it cheaper per box, (which is what I ordered last time) you can get a 3 pack instead of a 2 pack which takes it down to $12 a pack instead of $14 a pack.
Do the Power Pebbles use an enzyme to clean?
Yes, they do have an enzyme to aid in cleaning. This is an all in one tablet and their website states that the dishwashing tablets do 3 things:
- Soft water function
- washing function
- Brightening function
The ingredients included in Earth Breeze Power Pebble are:
- Sodium Carbonate
- Disodium Carbonate
- Sodium Disilicate
- Citric Acid
- Nonionic Surfactants
How much do the Power Pebbles cost per load?
For the smallest order of 2 boxes of 30 dishwasher tablets, a load will cost you 42 cents. That’s with free shipping and 10% off with a subscription. Otherwise you’re looking at 47 cents per load (less if you subscribe for 10% off)
If you order 3 boxes, you’ll save some money per box, $4/box cheaper (or 7 cents/load cheaper).
Don’t forget to clean your dishwasher filter
If you didn’t know that your dishwasher actually has a filter, and that it gets gunky and needs cleaned…you’re not alone! That was me once too. But now you know. Here’s a YouTube video that’ll show you how to clean your dishwasher filter.
We actually just realized that after about a year of use, our Earth Breeze pods were not cleaning like they used to and the glassware no longer sparkled but was dull and dirty looking. This was due to our filter needing a good clean!
I really don’t know how often to do this, but it makes a night and day difference in your dishes!
Questions to help you decide which cleaning products to buy when so many “work” fine.
We live in a day and age where information is at our fingertips, options are endless, and product delivery is just a click away. Here’s a few questions to run through next time you are ready to buy…well…anything!
- How well does this product do what I need it to do?
- What does this brand claim to care about? And, do they follow through?
- How does the brand help other people?
- What’s the overall effect on the planet when buying this?
- What’s the effect on your wallet?
Why Earth Breeze is an eco friendly company I can support
First and foremost…both products do what they’re supposed to. They clean, and they do it efficiently.
No matter how much I love an idea of a brand, if the product doesn’t deliver then I’m not going to use it! So there’s that.
But the real reason I can support this brand and recommend them to you is because I’ve found a brand that really seems to care about people and care about reducing plastic.
- Kept 10.2 million jugs from being produced (aka, nearly that many kept out of landfills)
- For every load purchased, Earth Breeze donates 10 loads of laundry detergent to a charitable organization of your choice. So far they’e donated over 100 million loads to homeless shelters, women’s shelters, veteran organizations, and disaster relief.
- Donated over 2.2 million meals to those in need.
- They’ve sponsored 9 ocean clean ups cleaning up 12,000 lbs of plastic.
- Planted over 150,000 trees to help offset carbon emissions created.
They’ve revolutionized the laundry industry, but have stayed true to their mission while doing it. Very cool.
Would I recommend Earth Breeze Eco Sheets?
Yes! I’m really like these! I especially like their scented sheets. It’s light, but suuuch a clean scent.
- I give an A+ to the easiness of using these.
- A+ that they clean our family’s clothes, and they are better priced than other laundry products per load when you get a subscription!
- A+ that they don’t have water inside taking up space on the shelf or in shipping trucks which decreases their carbon footprint.
- Also an A+ that Earth Breeze (and ultimately you as the customer who pays for the sheets) is out there doing humanitarian work giving hundreds of thousands of meals and detergent sheets to those in need in our communities.
Any downsides of using Earth Breeze?
As far as the downsides? I’d love to see a few things.
- While the fresh scent smells SO good, I hope to see them offer more scents in the future.
- I’d love to see the Power Pebbles come down in price, because they are on the pricier side per load compared to other eco friendly brands. BUT, these work the BEST of the ones I’ve tried!
- I’d also like to see a few more products offered by Earth Breeze! Maybe a toilet cleaning sheet? They do have an all purpose cleaning sheet I haven’t tried. But I love their mission to reduce plastic and would happily purchase other products for my home if they existed.
Is Earth Breeze Legit?
You’ve heard it from me, it’s legit! If you want to try it out for yourself, head to the Earth Breeze website and try one pack for yourself. Need some cleaning motivation? Here’s my cleaning schedule where one room a day gets worked on plus a short list of daily chores.
