Detergent sheets are taking the laundry world by storm, but where should you buy yours, and how do you know who to trust?
As laundry detergent sheet technology improves and continues to win over consumers compared to traditional liquid laundry detergent, more and more brands are entering the market. One of the main questions facing consumers, then, is also the simplest: where to buy laundry detergent sheets. We're here to help with all of the answers and information you need to buy with confidence.
The Rise of Online-Exclusive Brands
While the benefits of big-box retailers and sites like Amazon are clear, many brands like HeySunday, have made the choice to sell primarily from their own websites. By doing so, they can offer certain advantages or perks compared to alternatives.
While it's entirely possible to run deals while selling in brick-and-mortar stores, those deals are unpredictable, inconsistent, and typically designed or at least approved by the store itself. Because of this, brands might be limited in the freedom they have to pass savings onto their customers.
Conversely, buying through a branded website means no such limitations. Here, brands have full control over their bundles, subscription deals, or other discounts that can save you a healthy amount of cash on your orders.
Just like with in-person small businesses, branded websites typically put more time and effort into giving their customers the best experience possible. Usually, this means a better (and faster) customer support system, personalized responses to any questions you may have, and a more flexible purchasing process.
Peace of Mind
With the sheer dominance of sites like Amazon, many people have begun making money through third-party reselling. With this practice, individuals buy discounted items from brick-and-mortar stores and then resell them online for a higher price.
While this can be lucrative for sellers, third-party products may be more likely to have defects or packaging damage, ship less reliably, or cost more than buying directly from the brand itself.
HeySunday's On-Site Perks
When you order directly from HeySunday, you enjoy certain perks and advantages compared to shopping with big-box retailers. Just to name a few, each of our customers can expect:
- Prompt Customer Service: In order to ensure we're providing the best product and service possible, we read every message sent to us by our customers. That way, we can answer questions, improve our process, or (hopefully) read how much they've enjoyed our products.
- Maximum Savings: We work hard to offer our laundry sheets at competitive prices, using a mix of free shipping, minimalist packaging, and limited-time deals to pass on savings to our customers.
- Flexible Shipping: Not everyone goes through laundry detergent at the same rate, which is why we allow our customers to customize the frequency of their deliveries. Whether you need a box every two weeks or two months, we have a delivery plan to match.
- Useful Tips and News: In our minds, our company goes beyond laundry detergent. Instead, we genuinely want to make our customers' lives better in whatever way we can, which is why we take the time to write tips, advice, reviews, and news about the laundry industry.
Major Retailers and What They Offer
In the modern age, you probably don't need anyone to explain the benefits of shopping at a major retailer like the ones on our list. Even so, for comparison's sake, we outlined some of the main advantages of the largest retailers.
When shopping with Amazon, customers gain access to an enormous range of different products, brands, and price points. This means that regardless of whether you prefer basic scents like fresh linen, rarer smells like tropical passionfruit, or no scent at all with your detergent, Amazon likely has a product for you.
However, many brands don’t have control over how Amazon packages their product, so you may receive plastic or other packaging waste even when you buy from a brand that normally offers eco-friendly packaging.
Compared to many other brick-and-mortar retailers, Target has committed itself in recent years to focusing on more eco-friendly options for many of its home products. Combined with their frequent promotions and discounts, this makes them an excellent shopping choice.
Walmart is the tried-and-true one-stop shop for countless items, with laundry detergent being no exception. On top of their wide selection, however, Walmart shoppers also enjoy the added convenience of remote ordering and in-store pickup.
But as with any big box store, both Walmart and Target likely won’t have as wide of a selection of product options as you can find online.
Key Considerations When Buying Laundry Detergent Sheets
Just like when choosing a stain remover, dryer sheet, or any other laundry product, there are some key things to consider when deciding between laundry detergent sheet options.
Eco-Friendly and Skin-Friendly Ingredients
When shopping for laundry detergent sheets, always check that your chosen brand is free of harsh chemicals that may damage your skin and the environment. HeySunday's formula, for instance, is free of phosphates, phthalates, 1,4-dioxane, bleaches, and dyes that are all too common with some other brands of detergent.
For those with especially sensitive skin or who prefer more subtle scents, we also offer a fragrance-free option with all the same cleaning power as our scented sheets, so you can enjoy the simple, fresh scent of clean clothes.
Eco-friendly doesn't have to mean ineffective, and the best laundry detergent sheets often match or exceed the performance of traditional detergents. HeySunday's formula, for example, uses seven powerful, unique surfactants to break up tough stains and destroy odors.
Cleaning power goes beyond removing dirt, however, so always check a brand's reviews to ensure they leave no residue, work well in washing machines of all types, and dissolve in either hot or cold water.
Pricing and Package Sizes
Choosing the right detergent to stock your laundry room shelves requires a bit of research, but few factors are more important than price and value. Typically, you can expect to pay about $0.25 per load of laundry when using detergent sheets. That said, this number can change depending on shipping costs, discounts, and even how many sheets are needed to clean your fabrics.
As much as we believe in good, honest marketing, taking the time to look at customer reviews can be an excellent way to gauge a brand's product quality, purchasing experience, and any other considerations you may not have thought to research yourself.
If and when you have questions, complaints, or feedback, it helps to know that a real person will be there to listen. With laundry detergents, this means a customer service team that knows the product inside and out, genuinely enjoys interacting with customers, and responds quickly. When researching this aspect of a brand, customer reviews are a great way to test the waters.
Why HeySunday Stands Out
When we started HeySunday, we did so because we truly believed that a clean conscience shouldn't come at the expense of a clean home. That's why we took the time to find a powerful, eco-friendly formula that worked to keep your clothes clean just as well as other detergents—while also helping reduce the rampant waste and pollution caused by traditional detergent in the trademark heavy plastic jug.
Even with some of the most potent, concentrated laundry detergent sheets on the market, however, we knew that more was needed. So, we committed ourselves to using less packaging by opting for zero plastic and eliminating internal packaging altogether. Instead, every order of HeySunday sheets comes in a biodegradable cardboard envelope.
Finally, we needed to provide all of this at a price our customers could afford. When you subscribe for repeat shipments, you get 60 of our laundry detergent sheets for only $14, or $0.23 per load. Even better, users can customize their shipment frequency so they get orders delivered to their door exactly when they need them.
If you're ready to get started with HeySunday, consider ordering a box of our detergent sheets today. With a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee, you've got nothing to lose—except the stains.
