Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review & Giveaway

As a Purex Insider, I recently had the opportunity to try the new Spring Waters Purex Complete Crystals Softener.  When I received the bottle, I was wary.  Not because you put it in the washer with your clothes before you turn the washer on (I do that with my liquid softener ball) but because they were crystals!  Would they melt? Would the smell remain with the clothes complete through the dryer cycle? Answer; YES!

My clothes are static free, soft and they smell great!!  

Did you know that most laundry softeners are oil based? I didn't, but  they are and they coat your fabrics in oil which decreased the time span of your garment and food and stains and dirt can adhere more easily.  But with the Purex Crystals, they are not oil-based and they are 92% natural.

Purex Crystals is also the first softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear - it won't take away from your flame - retardent.




Laundry is a chore, but the crystals made it fun! I enjoyed watching what it can do and then reaping the rewards.

GIVEAWAY
The great folks at Purex are offering three winners a free product coupon for their own bottle of Purex Crystals!

  4. What a marvelous concept!! I never use fabric softener on towels (or on most laundry). My mother applied the "more is better" principle, and basically, rendered the towels useless. After washing my hair, picture a towel wrapped around my head with water dripping down your face...ugh!!

    Can't wait to try this!! Please count me in.
    Thank you.
