Review by The Plus Size Backpacker
I brought those laundry soap sheets during for my 6 weeks in India. My friend and I each bought 2 pack.
VERY IMPORTANT : DO NOT TOUCH THE PRODUCT WITH WET HANDS! All the sheets will end up sticking together or to your fingers and you will end up with one messy pack of soap sheets! (Happened to me, and even once dried, the sheets got all stuck in a bunch. Still usable, but not as great as originally intended!)
The "laundry purist" will find it lacks foam; in some ways, it's not a bad thing, because it takes less time to rinse (definitely not a "con" in that case). Nobody likes to spend hours doing laundry (the rinsing & wringing is the longest part!) when on vacation, so this allows for an OK wash, for "shorter" term get away (less than 3 months I would say). I guess it is caused by the need of the "sheet format" of this soap, this is very basic laundry soap, with no stain removing, bleaching/whitening agents, Overall, and especially with unclean/very mineral water, your clothes might lose their original qualities (nothing that a good machine wash won't fix though).

So I used these on my most recent trip. They are so thin (like Listerine strips) which poses several problems. One your hands can't be wet, two you end up using multiple at a time and three it produces a really small amount of soap. I bought these and the tide liquid and it made a good combo but I wouldn't only bring these.

Gotta agree with the other reviewers -- a must especially if you are travelling for a longer length of time. The lightness and compactness of this item leaves more space in your liquid allowance!

I admit I haven't used the soap yet but I still feel like these deserve 5 stars because they're just so tiny and lightweight and will be the perfect option to use on the road. I picked up 2 packs for my upcoming trip (14 months) and am tempted to geta couple more.

I mainly use bar soap for my laundry, but this is so tiny it is ideal to keep as an extra. If you just make sure you remove the sheets you need BEFORE having your hands wet at all with water, it's all fine and easy to use! Oh, and did I say super compact??
Great to just have as a back up in case you have an unexpected case of needing to wash something in your sink!

As other reviewers have stated, make sure that your hands are bone-dry before touching these. Otherwise, they work like a charm, and have a nice mild scent :)

Make sure your hands are dry before removing the soap sheet or moisture/water will get inside... if that happens the sheets will stick together. I'd say pack it separately from other travelon soap sheet products just incase in its own separate little plastic baggy. The case that sheets are in is not 100% waterproof sealed... so this is the reason for the little plastic baggy. During my trip I would use a couple of sheets in a blocked up sink... and would hand wash my undergarments and shirts and it did the job.

Used this product on a few longer trips where I was just traveling with a carry-on so they were great for doing laundry every few days. They don't really lather, so if you're not used to that, don't overuse the product. You really only need one sheet, trust it's working without seeing lots of bubbles. Fingers must be dry when pulling out the sheet.
I did not find the smell of the soap too strong on my clothes after they were washed, but I did find the smell of the package very overwhelming. I stored it in a separate plastic bag and in a separate side compartment in my suitcase away from everything else.

When you use it, just make sure that your hands are REALLY dry or else they will stick to each other. I used two sheets for an extra large load of laundry in my hotel in Rome (halfway point in a month long journey). If you're only washing something small - half a sheet in a sink will suffice. I'm allergic to a lot of scents and this one did not bother me.
