Purex Insider Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review & Giveaway (3 winners)

I recently became a Purex Insider so I have the opportunity to bring you news on Purex products.  They recently launched a new product called Purex Complete Crystals Softener™ that is just going on sale in stores starting this month.



  Facts about this new product:
  • 92% natural and not oil-based like other fabric softeners
  • Safe for use in Standard and High Efficiency (HE) washing machines
  • No oily residue which means no interfering with your towels ability to absorb water, safe to use on children's sleepwear since it does not hinder the fabric's flame retardant ability, and it does not affect the ability of wicking fabrics like those in sportswear to do their job
  • Easy to use (just throw in with your clothing at the start of the wash cycle)
  • Will keep your whites from yellowing or graying
  • Available in three new scents: Fresh Spring waters™ , Lavender Blossom™ , and Tropical Splash
  • Priced around $3.99-$5.99 and available nationwide at food, drug, and mass retailers 

I had been sent a sample of the Purex Complete Crystals Softener in the Fresh Spring Water scent.  I was a little worried about sprinkling the crystals in with my laundry because I feared I would have stains on my clothes where they came into contact with the fabric.  When I took my laundry out, my laundry not only looked clean but it smelled fresh.  The scent while the clothing was wet was a little strong but after a cycle in the dryer it came out smelling lightly scented.  Since I am sensitive to smells, I liked that it wasn't a cloying or overwhelming scent.  

I also liked that the fabric softener is primarily natural and that it doesn't impede the ability of fabrics to do their job.  As a mom concerned with taking care of the items we buy and trying to make them last as long as possible, I like products that help me with this goal.

Not being a fan of dryer sheets (which I have a tendency to not pull out when I get the clothing out of the dryer and which I find days later inside clothes), I prefer using fabric softener to help keep our clothes static free.  The crystals are very easy to use and I liked being able to just throw them in at the beginning of the wash cycle and then go about doing other things. 

Want to try them for yourself?

A dryer repairman once told my mom to NEVER use dryer sheets in the dryer. It does something to the heating element or something? Whatever it is, it definitely shortens the life of a dryer, according to him. I'm glad companies are coming out with other alternatives.

I love getting the clothes out of the dryer when everything is still warm.

Hanging the clothes out on the lines on a sunny spring day is one of my favorite laundry chores.

I wash my loads "in order"... I have an older washer and I worry about the bleach staining my dark clothes (left over in there from previous wash load) -- So I do white towels(we use these around the house for cleaning chores etc with LOTS of bleach), then whites with lesser bleach, then things that won't be harmed by a little bleach, then lastly darks. Since I have been doing this my closthes are less bleach spotted.

My favorite part of doing laundry is the smell, it sounds dorky but for me the smell of the drier going and clean laundry coming out is like comforting for some reason. I also love to fold but HATE to put away...LOL

Do a load every day so it doesn't pile up, and take them out while they're still warm to fold. :)
