How to Store Laundry Powder Properly (The Best Solution)

If you're a fan of Hudstone laundry powder, you know that proper storage is key to keeping your detergent fresh and effective.

Leaving it exposed to moisture and air can lead to clumping and a loss of potency. But with so many storage options out there, how do you know which one is best?

First and foremost, it's most important to choose an airtight container.

Whether you prefer jars, tins, or tubs, they are all great. Just make sure that the lid forms a tight seal to prevent any moisture from creeping in. This is especially important if you live in a humid climate or store your detergent in a damp area like a basement or laundry room.

At Hudstone, we recommend storing our laundry powders in an airtight container as soon as you receive them. Our refill bags are fully compostable and have a shelf life of six months, but only in dry conditions. By transferring the powder to an airtight container, you can help ensure its longevity and effectiveness.

If you're looking for a stylish and functional storage option, consider repurposing a glass jar or metal tin with a tight-fitting lid. These can be a great way to upcycle packaging and keep your laundry area organised at the same time. Just be sure to thoroughly clean and dry the container before filling it with your powder.

No matter what container you choose, the key is to prioritise airtightness to keep your laundry powder fresh and effective for as long as possible. So go ahead and stock up on your favourite laundry powder, but be sure to store it properly for optimal performance!
