This kit contains one of each of the following products:
With minimal (or no) packaging, the Laundry Concentrate works on your clothes, bedding, carpets, drapes, kid and pet messes. All-natural and get up to 264 loads! The Tangie zero waste laundry detergent is a paste-to-liquid concentrate you dissolve at home using your own water and choosing your own container. Finally a plastic free zero waste laundry soap that lets you choose and use a laundry container that works for you (and your space), not the manufacturer! Choose to receive the Laundry Concentrate packaged or package-free. We recommend all first-time users choose the packaged option so you have the instructions handy especially when you do not dissolve the entire bar of laundry concentrate all at once.
STAIN REMOVER BAR
This Stain Remover is a perfect addition. Our powerful stain remover bar works like magic on your toughest stains. Rid your clothes of grass stains to ink stains and lots in between! The handy bar lets you apply the stain remover where stains happen. Use on your drapes, pet bedding, carpets, while driving, on a plane, wherever you are! Cut this bar into smaller pieces and carry one in your purse, backpack, briefcase or car. Stains happen when we least expect them, be ready, and be prepared with this Tangie powerful zero waste Stain Remover Bar.
The Stain Remover Bar comes in a lightweight cardboard box that we recommend you use to store the full bar in between uses. If you do not want to store the stain remover bar in the box, you can recycle the box or place the box in your home composter.
LAUNDRY SOAP DISPENSER
This dispenser lid is too handy not to use! The cap measures one-ounce of liquid, making it easy to measure the right you need per load. The handy wooden laundry soap dispenser lid fits any regular size canning jar neck. Handmade from reclaimed wood, it makes a beautiful addition to your laundry room.
It is always best to refill an empty laundry container, if you have one. If not, we had these custom laundry dispenser lids made especially to use with our zero waste laundry soap. You can make your own laundry container from a canning jar (or a variety of glass jars) with a standard size neck opening. This will NOT work on wide-mouth jars. Glass is much more beautiful than plastic and can be endlessly recycled, unlike plastics.

We only see about 30% of the dirt on our clothes. They might not be dirty with dirt, but they are loaded with body oil, dead skin cells, sweat and lots of lotions and deodorant. Think about that next time you go to rewear your pajamas or jeans for the fourth time!
Don’t think you sweat much?
According to studies, we can sweat as much as 30 ounces while sleeping. Maybe changing our sheets once a week is not enough?! An average adult can sweat as much as 3 litres just from their feet. Hmmmm… stinky socks anyone?
Once the temperature rises above 85, you start sweating even if you’re at rest. Tests conducted in the Sonoran Desert found that subjects sitting naked in the shade in 95-degree heat produced 220 milliliters of sweat per hour. Assuming comparable conditions were to prevail at night, you’d lose close to two liters over an eight-hour stretch. But then you wouldn’t even be thinking about a new mattress— you’d be shopping for an air conditioner. https://washingtoncitypaper.com/article/221338/straight-dope-do-you-really-sweat-one-liter-each-night/
Doing Laundry in Space —
There are no washing machines up there in the black velvet sky. Ever wonder how astronauts wash their underwear while flying around at 17,500 miles per hour? They incinerate them! After reusing them for about a week (if they are lucky), those undies get burned. They have enough to do up there to not worry about washing and folding clothes!
No laundry system means the ISS crew try to wear all their clothes until they smell bad, then throw them in the trash.
According to Astronaut Clayton C. Anderson, Former resident of the ISS:
“The difficult part was that I had to wear those boxer shorts for at least four days. You see, with no laundry service up there, clothes (including underwear) are what we at NASA call a “consumable.” Using up your consumables too fast results in a need for more frequent supply deliveries, and when those deliveries come by rocket ship… well, let’s just say it’s a bit costly.”
Robert Trevino is a senior engineer with NASA’s Crew and Thermal Systems Division and reported to Vice.com that “on missions farther from Earth, we’re not going to have that luxury, of the space station having cargo vehicles that bring them fresh clothing. We’ve done trade studies of providing a laundry system which uses water and power and requires something to take it up, versus the cost of just replacing the clothing, and right now it’s essentially cheaper to replace the clothing because water is just too valuable of a resource.” https://www.vice.com/en/article/kbyamw/why-astronauts-burn-their-dirty-underwear
