At fulFILLed Lifestyle Co., we make it easy for you to reduce single-use plastic waste. We encourage you to reuse your own containers and reFILL them with eco-friendly household and personal care products. “ReFILLables” are sold by the ounce, so you only pay for the amount of product you need—saving money and reducing plastic pollution.
Instructions on how to refill your personal care and cleaning products
Bring Your Own Container:
- Bring your own jar or container or purchase one at our refill station. Ensure your containers are empty, clean, and dry before refilling. View container prep tips below
Weigh Your Container:
- Refills are sold by the ounce. We weigh your empty container (tare) prior to filling.
Fill and Weigh Again:
- Fill up your container with your desired product and then weigh it again. This way you’ll only be charged for the product itself and not the packaging.
How To Wash Glass and Plastic Containers
- Empty container and remove any residue.
- Remove any labels.
- Use a brush to scrub the container in hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly in clean, hot water or run through a dishwasher load.
- Air dry on a clean surface.
- Store in a clean and dry place until ready to refill.
How To Remove Stubborn Labels (Although we don’t care if the labels are left on.)
- If after cleaning there is still sticky residue left on the jar or container, rub a mixture of baking soda and cooking oil over the remaining glue.
- If oily jars aren’t your thing, you can also try anything with a high percentage of alcohol – like isopropanol.
- Make sure you rinse after cleaning and allow to try before refilling.
How To Sterilize Glass and Metal Containers and Lids
- Place your jars, containers and lids into a pot with water. Bring to a boil.
- Boil for 10 minutes.
- Remove carefully from water.
- Air dry completely before use.
How To Sterilize Plastic Containers and Lids
- Soak in hydrogen peroxide (3%) for about 10-15 minutes.
- Let dry completely.
- Or spray with isopropyl alcohol (70%) and leave to air dry.
Commonly asked questions:
Q: Do I have to refill (pump) the products myself?
A: You can refill your own bottles or we can do it for you. You can even drop off your
containers for refilling and come back at a more convenient time for you.
Q: What happens if I make a mess?
A: Don’t worry about it. We do it too! Luckily we have clean towels and rags on hand to help you clean up.
Q: How do I refill without spilling?
A: The best practice that we’ve found is to place the pump just inside your container and
tilt your container about 30 degrees so that the product has the space to fill the
container properly. Also, it’s important to remember to leave enough space at the top of our container for your pump (if your container has one). We also have funnels available should you need one.
Q: Does it cost more to refill than buying traditional products?
A: At fulFILLed, we strive to make eco-friendly living accessible and affordable for all.
The cost of refilling varies depending on the product and its volume.
Refilling your containers with our high-quality, eco-friendly products is not only environmentally conscious but can also be cost-effective, saving you significant amounts over time.
For example, our liquid and powder laundry detergent options cost anywhere from .40 to .50 cents an ounce. And depending on which detergent you choose, that’s anywhere from .12 cents to .20 cents a load—less than traditional options like Tide (.22 cents a load) and safer for you and the environment. (No, cancer-causing 1,4 dioxane here.)
We’re proud to provide transparent pricing that not only contributes to waste reduction but also helps you save money in the long run.
Q: What if I just want to try a product, do I have to fill up the whole container?
A: That’s what’s so awesome about refilling your products, you can buy as much or as
little as you like.
Q: Can I return a refillable product if it turns out I don’t like it?
A: Unfortunately, we do not accept returns for refillable products. We encourage customers to purchase a small amount of product to try before buying a large quantity, this way they can ensure that the product meets their needs and preferences. Our team is always available to provide guidance and recommendations to help you make informed decisions about which product would work best for our customers’ needs. Please feel free to reach out to us for any assistance or further information about our products.
Q: What’s your return policy on non-refillable products?
A: Our return policy for non-refillable products allows for returns within 30 days of purchase, provided the item is in new condition and has not been used. We aim to ensure your satisfaction with every purchase, and we’re committed to facilitating a seamless and hassle-free return process for eligible items.

Q: Can I bring containers from other brands for refilling at your store?
A: Yes, you can bring containers from other brands for refilling, provided they are clean,
dry, and suitable for the products you wish to refill.
Q: Is it safe to refill my containers with different products?
A: Yes, it is safe to refill your containers with different products as long as you thoroughly
clean and dry them between uses.

A: Our staff can provide assistance and recommend suitable methods for refilling containers with unique shapes or openings.
