“ Dri-Pak Limited are producers of household cleaning and laundry products. „
I know I'm a bit sad, but I tend to steer clear of commercial cleaning products and where I can, stick to natural cleaners instead.
It's partly driven by a desire not to impact negatively on the environment and also by the fact that I've got a septic tank - non-degradable cleaners stop it from working properly and 'doing what comes naturally.'
My arsenal consists of; soda crystals, pure soap flakes and borax, there isn't much you can't clean armed with these three, but I generally find buying them to be a bit of a pain as the soap flakes and borax in particular can be a bit difficult to source.
Imagine then my surprise and delight when I found listings on eBay from a company called Dri-Pak, who allowed me to buy in half dozen quantities, and bless them, would use Royal Mail as opposed to a courier service for delivery.
Price wise I definitely found them competitive even including the postage, which for heavy items, was charged at cost and the products combined. Each of the items came in at around £6 (more or less per six packets) excluding postage and is very reasonable if you can't source them locally. And, as relative newbies to eBay, they were very helpful considering I gave them a task most would shirk from; Can I have half a dozen of each, sent via RM and to one of the most northerly isles in the UK ...?
But the products duly arrived and with them came a brochure directing me to their website. Not only does this give you the opportunity to buy products direct, but also directs you to other suppliers if you don't wish to purchase on-line. Both the brochure and the website give you listings of their products together with very helpful hints on what to use them for and the full range generally means you can clean everything from clothes to drains without worrying about how you are impacting on the environment.
You can order direct from their website but they don't take credit cards, only cheques, but buying via eBay means you can pay via Paypal. The website gives the whole product list including postage costs and also has sections on hints and tips, downloads and fun stuff to do with the kids - including finger painting and making slime!
Apparently this is a family firm that has been in operation for three generations. Their main business has been supplying traditional cleaning products to the retail sector and their expansion is founded on this. Personally, I hope they do well, companies that make the bit of extra effort, which Dri-Pak do, deserve to.
