When it comes to laundry detergent for vending machines, the options are scarce. Often, you’ll find the same, commercially-made products that are single wash or double wash. On top of that, it’s almost impossible to find a laundry detergent that’s 100% pure and plant-based with biodegradable ingredients, that’s also convenient in size and packaging.

If you’re looking for a more sustainable laundry detergent option to stock in your vending machine, find out why our Laundry Detergent Pocket Pals are the best option. 

5x washes instead of one 

It’s common to see single or double-wash laundry detergent options in laundromat vending machines. Not only is it single-use and unsustainable, contributing to more landfill, it can also be frustrating for customers with larger loads of washing. Our Laundry Detergent Pocket Pals offer five washes instead of one or two, and also has a screw cap for future use, ensuring that your customers get the most out of each sachet. 

Safe and listed ingredients 

Our Laundry Detergent Pocket Pals are made with safe and listed ingredients, and are also vegan and cruelty-free. Unlike their commercially-made counterparts, our laundry detergent contains no fillers or phosphates, artificial scents or dyes and are made with 100% plant-based and biodegradable ingredients.

Original Laundry Detergent Pocket Pals

Powerful and concentrated 

Did you know that the majority of liquid detergents available contain 60-90% water? We don’t want your customers to pay for ‘just water’ which is why our Pocket Pals are 8x eco concentrated. Less water in our detergent means less weight, a reduced carbon-footprint and a more effective wash for your customer. 


Pocket Pals in Vending Machine


Liquid over powder

There are many reasons why customers choose a liquid detergent over a powder detergent. Not only is there less mess and better performance (in hot and cold temperatures), it dissolves more easily in water and doesn’t leave residue on clothes or in your machine (meaning less maintenance). Our Laundry Detergent Pocket Pals have markers down the side of the refill as a dosage guide and can also be used to pretreat heavy duty stains.

Refill and return 

Our goal is to reduce as much plastic waste as possible which is why we created our Refill-Return program. This closed-loop system ensures that our Laundry Detergent Pocket Pals are given a second, third or fourth life as refills or transformed into pocket scoops at the end of their life. A free and easy return program, this is a unique proposition for your laundromat and an attractive selling point for your environmentally-minded customer. 


Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Nina’s Laundrette had to say after stocking our Pocket Pals

"Laundry detergent sales in the vending machine at our Northcote Laundromat have increased since we began stocking the Dirt Company’s Pocket Pals.
Pocket Pals provide customers with more choice. Not just enabling them to choose a more sustainable product, there's a practical choice too. If a customer who is using multiple machines forgets their soap, they can buy one Pocket Pal, rather than needing to buy multiple single-use packets of washing powder."

- Jono Santamaria (Owner of Nina’s Laundrette)

Laundry Pocket Pals are the best and most eco-friendly laundry detergent for your vending machine. They’re perfect for laundromat’s caravan parks, or any other shared laundry space. Pocket Pals are vailable in Original, Advanced Wash and Wool & Delicate. They  are the cleanest option for clothes, skin and the environment.
