I have been selected to be a Purex Insider, which I’m really excited about because until today I hadn’t tried their laundry products. As part of this blogger program, I will have the opportunity to try the new products before they hit store shelves, and I’ll share my experiences with you.
Their newest product is Purex® Complete Crystals Softener, which will change the way you look at doing laundry. It even looks pretty enough in the package that you won’t mind leaving it out in your laundry room.
They look like bathtub salts. But looks won’t matter if it doesn’t actually work. I received a sample sized bottle in the fresh spring watersTM scent and I put it to the test today. The 92% natural crystals are added to the clothing in your washer right along with your laundry detergent (not the fabric softener well).I like the ease of using this softener as opposed to messy liquid softeners. It is also said that the crystals will:
• Preserve the flame retardant benefits of your children’s clothes
• Retain your athletic wear’s wicking ability which draws sweat away from your body
• Maintain your towels’ built-in ability to absorb water
• Keep your white clothing from yellowing and graying vs. using traditional softeners
While I love the scent – I’m a huge fan of scented candles and diffusers, he smell was so strong when transferring wet clothing into the dryer that it gave me a headache. However, it became less strong when the clothes were dry. I’d like to see an unscented version of this product. In the meantime, they work great at de-stinking the trash can or diaper pail.
Purex Complete Crystals Softener is priced from $3.99 to $5.99 depending on the retailer. It’s available starting today at Wal-Mart stores, and in January, it will be available at many other food, drug and mass retailers nationwide.
