Simplify Your Laundry Routine

The Less Steps, The Better

We know laundry can be a big task, but it just got easier with new liquid single-load laundry packets. Just put one packet of pre-measured detergent into your machine to simplify your laundry routine. How's that for innovation and ease?

Now is the time to take small steps to clean up your laundry routine, and to make your home as safe as possible for your family. While we know laundry is one of your daily or weekly tasks, take a moment to read through the tips below to ensure you are using and storing the single-load laundry packets properly, and you'll be on your way to a convenient, simpler laundry routine.

How do I use this new product?

  • Add the single-load laundry packets to the bottom – also known as the drum – of the washing machine, both for top-loader and high-efficiency front-loader machines, before adding clothes, for best results. Do not add the single-load laundry packets to your machine's dispenser drawer.
  • Do not cut or tear the pouch. It is designed to dissolve completely in the machine, even in cold water.
  • Use one single-load laundry packets for most loads, but for heavily soiled loads you can use two.
  • Do not use for hand washing or pretreating.
  • If the single-load laundry packets stick together, do not pull hard, as the packets may tear. If two single load laundry packets stick together, place them together in the machine.
  • Handle the single-load laundry packets with dry hands only, and remember to close the bag or tub completely after each use to keep out moisture. The packet's film is designed to dissolve quickly, even in small amounts of water, so it is important to store pacs away from water.
  • Keep the single-load laundry packets out of the reach of children and pets between every load to prevent unintended exposure.
  • Always ensure reclosable bag or tub is tightly sealed during storage.
  • As with other laundry products, keep the single-load laundry packets in the original container with intact labels.
  • Store the single-load laundry packets away from food, as you would with other laundry products.
