Highly requested by our EcoWarrior community, these Dropps natural dishwasher detergent pods double as laundry oxi-booster pods - a natural bleach alternative for even your toughest laundry days. With mineral-based and biodegradable ingredients, these non-toxic dishwasher detergent and oxi-booster pods are safe for babies, sensitive skin, and septic systems - and they’ll work just as well (if not better!) than the conventional pods you’re already used to, but are so much better for the environment.

As a natural dishwasher detergent, these pods will fight caked-on food residue with no need for a pre-rinse and leave your dishes absolutely ~sparkling~, every time.

As an oxi-booster, these pods will add some extra oomph to your sustainable and eco-friendly laundry routine. Whiten whites, brighten colors, and fight stains, all with just one little oxi-boost pod.

Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Percarbonate, Poly(itaconic acid-co-AMPS) Sodium Salt , Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate, Alkoxylated Alcohol, Subtilisin, Silicic Acid, Tetraacetylethylenediamine, Alpha Amylase, Polyvinyl Alcohol Film (PVOH / PVA)

What is PVOH / PVA?

Polyvinyl alcohol is a bio-based film. Most evidence to date shows that these film coatings do dissolve in the water system. Is it a perfect solution? No, but we believe it's a step in the right direction. Check out our blog post all about PVA for more info about its sustainability and why we’ve opted to include these pods in our zero waste product lineup.

To Use

As a dishwasher detergent: With dry hands, add one natural dishwasher pod to the detergent dispenser of your dishwasher. Use all settings as normal.

As a laundry oxi-booster: With dry hands, add one oxi-booster pod to the drum of your washing machine, along with your laundry detergent. Add your laundry and wash as normal. Use any time you need a little extra cleaning power - maybe with some sweaty gym clothes, towels that are looking a little dingy, or messes from babies and pets.

Packaging + End of Life

If your dishwasher detergent + oxi-booster pods are being shipped to you, they’ll be shipped without any additional packaging. (In fact, they may actually help us replace some padding to keep other items in your order safe! Now that’s zero waste if we’ve ever heard of it ✌)

If you live locally around Tacoma, we'll pack your pods in a curbside-recyclable cardboard box with minimal paper tape. The box and tape can be placed in curbside paper recycling. (Or return them to us on your next delivery day so they can have even more life!)

We recommend storing your pods in a reusable, airtight container.


These natural dishwasher detergent + oxi-booster pods are made in the midwest of the United States.

🌎 You care about the planet. So do we.

Look. I get it. It’s HARD to be an EcoWarrior. Someone who cares about the planet and wants the most sustainable products available - from the ingredients to the packaging to the way that product gets to your hands.

It seems like everywhere we turn, someone, somewhere, is greenwashing us.

But our superpower at A Drop in the Ocean is sorting through the BS, calling it out, and making sure our products are the absolute most sustainable and truly zero waste products we can find.

So on top of all the things we mentioned above about what makes our Dropps dishwasher detergent + oxi-booster pods so sustainable, here’s a few other things you should know:

  • We’re actually practicing what we preach behind the scenes. In 2022, we saved all of our trash for four months, and wrote a whole blog post on it. The tl;dr version is this: in four months, we only produced two pounds of trash. Everything from the packaging our products come in down to the Sharpie we use to write “Fragile” on your box is zero waste to its core.
  • We’re an online-only zero waste store - which is highly intentional. It may seem counter-intuitive, but online shopping is actually more sustainable than in-person. I’m a data nerd at heart and I love diving into the research, and there are countless studies that have shown that online shopping is the most sustainable way to get your everyday essentials. Don’t believe me? Check out our whole blog post on the sustainability of online shopping.
  • We ship ugly boxes. Your order from A Drop in the Ocean is not going to arrive in a pretty, branded box. It’s gonna show up in a reused tea box, or a donated Amazon box, or maybe even an inside-out Girl Scout Cookies box. All of our shipping materials are always 100% plastic-free and reused as much as possible, with curbside-recyclable paper tape and a post-consumer recycled paper shipping label. It won’t be pretty, but it will be zero waste.

Got more questions about our zero waste products or our practices behind the scenes? Just send us an email! I’m always happy to chat all things eco.

We ship ugly boxes

Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.

We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.

You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.

Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact product many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.

My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.

I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.

Dishwasher/Oxiboost pods

So far so good! I’m using them for the oxiboost-ness and my whites look great!

Convenient, easy, package-free

I use the Dishwasher + Oxi Boost Pods regularly in my dishwasher and they work great. When I order them from ADITO, they arrive along with the rest of my order free of any plastic packaging. I store them in a large mason jar under the sink and just plop one into the washer when it's time to do the dishes. A single subscription order lasts me six months, or even more.

Simple and easy! No plastic

The weird plastic-looking film thing around the pods throws some people off, but these aren't wrapped in plastic! They are very comparable to other pods I've used. No issues with leaving dishes dirty or not rinsing fully. Work great with my dishwasher.

my dishes are clean and I haven’t had any issues. Takes up less space that the big plastic boxes/ bags the corporate stuff comes in. Less wate, works good and comparable price. I will buy again

Work Great!

These clean my dishes really well. I am so happy that you have this product as unfortunately the other dishwasher soap blocks didn't work for me. I am very thankful for a product that is more eco friendly and effective!
