I like living in a city. I like public transportation. I like having almost endless restaurant options. But I do not like not having a washer and dryer in my apartment. With the closest laundromat four flights of stairs and half a block away (very close, by city standards), I am forced to turn to laundry hacks to efficiently get my clothes clean — and this genius product is my new favorite.
Dreambly is an all-in-one laundry solution contained in what looks like a dryer sheet, and it’s saving my sanity, one load of laundry at a time. Each Dreambly Wash + Dry Sheet can serve as detergent, stain remover, fabric softener, whitener, brightener, and dryer sheet, which means I only need to take the small pack of sheets with me to the laundromat, instead of a slew of bottles and powders and packages.
When I first heard of Dreambly, I was skeptical — how can a single sheet do so much? It seemed too good to be true. But after I used a sheet to remove stains from a beloved dress and do a load of laundry that came out refreshed, without a strong detergent smell, I was convinced, and now Dreambly has replaced the detergent bottles, dryer sheets, and stain removers I’ve used since college. All I had to do was dab at the stains with the sheet, then toss it — along with my load of laundry — into the wash. When the load was finished, I tossed the whole thing into the dryer. No extra steps, and no miscellaneous laundry products to keep track of: That’s practically laundry heaven for me.
I can’t count how many times I’ve had to clean up sticky spots of spilled detergent in the laundry room, but Dreambly eliminates that risk while simplifying my laundry routine. Plus, the sheets are biodegradable and made with all-natural ingredients, so I can feel a tiny bit better about my ecological footprint. For those with sensitive skin or allergies, the sheets are non-toxic, non-harmful, non-irritating, hypoallergenic, and free of synthetic dyes and perfumes. (They’re also scented with essential oils!)

Thanks to this laundry hack, I no longer have to return to my apartment to grab the dryer sheets I forgot. I don’t have to (incorrectly) measure detergent. I don’t have to treat stained clothing before I leave home, and I don’t have to panic when I realize I forgot to do that. Even if I did have a washer and dryer in my apartment, I’d love Dreambly, if only because it simplifies my laundry routine (and means no more detergent spills).
