Love my Dropps subscription! I have the lavender which uses essential oils and is not overpowering like some other natural brands. I love not lugging home a huge jug of detergent and saving water. Plus they give you a nice pouch for cold water loads in case your washer does not have a POD dispenser.

I wish each option had a cost breakdown of lowest price per load option offered by each company. Whenever I buy laundry detergent I divide the loads by the price to get cost per load.

Great list! I’ve been a long time Honest Company essential bundle subscriber. They recently changed their model and no longer offer the essentials bundle 🙁 Instead it is a subscribe and save model on individual products. I look forward to checking out these other options.
