Laundry Detergent Sheets – Better for the family and environment!

Laundry sheets, we’ve heard so much about them. Are they worth the hype (and the switch)?

What are laundry detergent sheets? 

Laundry detergent sheets are essentially solid detergent compressed into a sheet form. They can be compactly packed in cardboard packaging, thus reducing plastic bottle wastage that is generated from traditional bottled liquid detergent.
