Snap™ Dishwashing Liquid discussed above doubles as liquid hand soap. The Aloe Vera in it helps moisturize your skin, so whether you use it to wash the dishes or your hands, your skin remains soft and smooth.

In contrast, many bar soaps contribute to dry and scaly skin because of their alkalinity (high pH).

Snap™ All-Purpose Natural Concentrate, discussed in more detail on the Natural Cleaners page, can also be used as hand soap.

Snap™ Wall-Mounted Hand Soap Dispenser easily dispenses either Snap Dishwashing Liquid or Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate for use as hand soap.

The skin is our — and our children’s — largest organ. It can absorb harmful components of harsh laundry detergents, and may develop allergic reactions to them. If your center launders the sheets in which the children take their afternoon naps, consider the hypoallergenic Snap detergents and softeners.


Snap™ Laundry Detergent can be used in both front- and top-loading washers, including high-efficiency ones, in all water temperatures and wash cycles. It is very economical and comes in small, easy-to-handle bottles. Each 40 fl. oz. bottle does up to 80 loads of laundry.

If you do have children with extremely sensitive skin, we recommend the dye- and fragrance-free Snap™ Free & Clear Laundry Detergent. It is just as efficient and effective as the regular Snap detergent, with the added hypoallergenic protection.

Product highlights:

  • Safe for delicates and baby clothes, hypoallergenic, non-toxic
  • Highly concentrated and economical
  • Environment-friendly, phosphate-free, biodegradable, plant-based ingredients, bottled in recyclable plastic
  • Doubles as carpet shampoo

Learn more about or buy Snap Laundry Detergent or Snap Free & Clear Laundry Detergent.


Snap™ Fabric Softener is a powder. Sprinkle a dash or two onto the laundry in the dryer. May need more for particularly staticky loads.

  • One bottle replaces about 1,000 (one thousand) fabric softener sheets
  • Eliminates static cling from clothes, linens and towels; makes your laundry fresh and soft
  • Doubles as a carpet freshener

If your washer enables automatic release of a liquid softener during the rinse cycle, you can use Snap™ Free & Clear Fabric Softener instead. It removes static cling from your laundry as efficiently and effectively as the Snap laundry detergents clean it, with all of the other benefits and the added hypoallergenic protection of being dye- and fragrance-free.

User from Maryland (Dishwasher Crystals):

I LOVE this product! I […] tried leaving my dishes undone for an entire week. I normally do dishes at least every other day. Food was really dried on. I didn’t rinse for this either. I used 1 teaspoon and set the dishwasher to normal. I was totally pleased with the outcome. All the dishes were clean the glasses sparkled and the silverware, well was clean too. I won’t use anything else. And it lasts forever too.

Customer from California (Dishwashing Liquid):

This is the most powerful dish detergent I have ever used. It cleans superbly, rinses well, leaves no streaks or spots but best of all…it is gentle to my hands. My hands never feel dry at all. This is amazing considering some of the “other brands” require heavy duty hand lotion next to the bottle of soap on the sink!

Customer from California (Dishwashing Liquid):

I do the dishes everyday, and for more than a year, the Snap dishwashing detergent has been my best helper at the sink. All the dishes that I cleaned are squeaky clean, just the way I like and expect them to be. I don’t like to wear gloves when I do the dishes and yet my hands feel fine, this is truly a cosmetic grade product for the home.

Customer from Washington (Laundry detergent):

I am using this product in the laundry room for our dirty work clothes and also in my steam cleaner. The detergent cleans my carpets beautiful; better than the leading carpet shampoo. I love this product and will continue to buy.

Mom of 6 kids from Illinois (Free & Clear detergent):

[…] I can’t believe that so little can do so much! I have a high efficiency washer and you can believe it gets a workout with six kids. So at around 10 cents a load, I don’t feel near as bad running it so much. Plus knowing I am not putting toxins against the biggest organ of their body makes me feel like a better mother.

Customer from Massachusetts (Softener powder):

I use this product in every clothes dryer load, clothes, towels, rugs, etc. No more static or dryer sheets clinging to the inside of my nightgowns or pants. It’s not cheap to buy, but it’s cost effective because a small canister lasts a long, long time. You only need a few shakes, and the clothes smell really fresh.
