Laundry pods sometimes get a bad reputation. Issues surrounding dissolvability in different water types (soft vs. hard) and different temperatures (cold vs. warm) are enough for us to say forget it – hand over the liquid. Don’t make the switch just yet. Laundry pods are time efficient – they’re perfectly proportioned for you to throw and go – and if you choose the right brand (like Grab Green), they’re totally eco-responsible. Are your laundry pods not dissolving? Here are 6 steps on how to use laundry pods so that they dissolve properly and you get the most out of each one!
1 | Choose the right brand
The first step, and maybe the most important, is choosing a brand that’s reliable. This means the pod must provide an effective, safe and thorough clean. Grab Green has a new and improved formula that allows the pod to dissolve in all types of water – cold, warm, soft and hard! They’re also comprised of a 3-in-1 formula that is a superior detergent, remarkable stain remover, and beautiful brightener! All while being eco-responsible, and made of naturally-derived, plant and mineral based ingredients. That’s a solution we can all get behind.
2 | Place pod in the wash
Next, place the pod directly into the washer drum before putting your clothes in the wash. You can also put it in the detergent dispenser on the powder side, but don’t throw the pod directly into the wash mixed with the whole load. This runs the risk of the pods getting lost in a pair of jeans or stuck in a sock and not dissolving properly.
3 | Use the correct amount
Always make sure you are using the correct amount. If you’re using Grab Green, one pod can tackle a small to medium size load and two pods can conquer a large load. Laundry just got easier.
4 | Don’t over-stuff
It’s tempting to turn two loads into one by jamming it all in there, but over-stuffing spreads your washing machine thin. Get the most out of your pod (and go easy on your washing machine!) by not stuffing too many clothes in a load.
5 | Choose the right setting
Then, choose the right setting for your clothing (hot, cold, delicate, heavy duty … etc.) Pods can dissolve in both warm and cold water, but if your cold water setting is too cold, you may need to choose a different setting. Sometimes, pods have a difficult time dissolving under extremely cold water.
6 | Start your machine
Lastly, start your machines! Enjoy a clean and thorough wash.
