What are Laundry Strips?

Tru Earth Eco-strips are laundry strips work just like conventional laundry detergent. Just toss a laundry strip into your washing machine! Tru Earth Eco-strips are made up of super concentrated soap and will dissolve completely in hot or cold water. After washing your clothes, any soap left in washing machine wastewater will biodegrade.

One laundry strip is all it takes for a clean load of laundry!

Besides being great for the planet, Tru Earth Eco-strips are safe for you and your family. They are paraben and phosphate free and are safe for sensitive skin. They are vegan, and Tru Earth never utilizes animal testing on their products.

Using Eco-strips gives me peace of mind. I love knowing that it’s made up of safe ingredients and that it’s plastic free. All while cleaning my clothes just as effectively as conventional detergent!

Eco-Strips Options Galore!

One of the amazing things about Tru Earth eco-strips is that they have many variations of their products. Fragranced and unfragranced, a heavy-duty Platinum line, and even laundry strips formulated for babies!

This is the definitive guide to Tru Earth Eco-strips and their variations. Regardless of the size of your family or how dirty your loads of laundry are, there is a Tru Earth Eco-strip that is perfect for you!

Eco-strips Standard Line

The three most basic variation of Tru Earth Eco-strips are Fragranced, Fragrance Free and Baby formulations. These are all part of the standard line of laundry strips.

Fragrance vs. Fragrance Free

Standard Eco-strips pack a powerful punch when cleaning clothes. They are ultra-concentrated, and work in all types of washing machines. The Fresh Linen fragrance is light and clean, with that classic fresh laundry smell. The Fragrance Free option is a great pick for anyone sensitive to perfumes and scents.

Regardless of fragrance, the laundry strips obliterates dirt molecules, odor, and stains. Tru Earth Eco-strips leave laundry fresh and clean! I always keep both versions stocked in my laundry room and use them interchangeably.

Baby Laundry Strips

If you have a little one, you know how delicate and sensitive their skin is. Because of this, there are extra precautions and steps to make sure their clothes will not cause any irritation. It’s important to ensure laundry detergent is as gentle as can be. Tru Earth Baby Eco-strips are specially formulated with this in mind and is suitable for a baby’s clothes, cloth diapers, towels, and blankets.

Baby Eco-strips are fragrance free and hypoallergenic, making them safe for the most delicate of skin. Not only is this Eco-strip formulation great for babies, but also anyone with extremely sensitive skin or any skin conditions such as eczema.

My cousin had a baby last year and has the highest standards for laundry products. I recently introduced her to Tru Earth Baby Eco-strips and her family loves them! It has made the frequent laundry loads of baby clothes easy to keep clean and safe.

Platinum Laundry Strips

Are you a gym fiend with huge laundry piles of workout gear? Do you get dirt and mud on your clothes after spending a day working in your garden? Or maybe your hiking gear is covered in grime after a long trek?

Anyone looking for a heavy duty clean will love Platinum Eco-strips. These laundry strips are ultra-concentrated with intense cleaning power, designed for fighting some of the toughest stains and dirtiest clothes.

Platinum Eco-strips are very effective against dirt and stains. At Emeraldology we put these up to the test by testing them on muddy dog towels. No surprise, Tru Earth beat all the dirt and no dog odor was left behind, leaving the towels looking new!

Not to mention, Platinum Eco-strips can remove oils and grease, and Tru Earth claims they are effective against smoke odor! Also available in both Fragrance Free and Fresh Linen, Platinum Eco-strips are a great staple to have in your laundry room to help handle any heavy-duty laundry loads. I always keep Platinum strips on hand and use them frequently to cut out stains!
