Purex Crystals - Review and Giveaway!


As a Purex Insider, I was one of the first to try the new Purex Complete Crystals Softener.  I received a sample size of Fresh Spring Waters, enough to do four loads of laundry.  I liked it so much, I went out and bought a full size Lavender Blossom.  I know I have said before that I am a scent person.  I have been known to spend forever in the aisle with the cleaning supplies at the store smelling ALL of the detergents and softeners before I decide what to buy.  I have to say that these did not disappoint, I have not tried Tropical Splash yet, but I really liked Spring Waters and I *love* Lavender Blossom.  So much that I even filled up a reed diffuser bottle with them and put it in my bathroom, haha.  It's on a really high shelf (so no worries about the girls getting to it), and not only does it smell great, but it looks pretty too. 


Purex Complete Crystals Softener is unique in that it is in a solid, crystals, form.  This 92% natural fabric softener gets clothes smelling fresh and clean for weeks.  Most traditional softeners are oil based, and actually coat your fabrics with an oily residue (that can accumulate!  Have you ever pulled something out of the dryer only to inspect it and see that it looks like there is an oil stain?  Wondered where it came from?), but Purex Complete Crystals work differently to actually infuse the fabrics with their great fragrances.  These new Crystals are safe for your laundry and will not harm, wear down, or discolor your fabrics the way some liquid softeners can.  They even preserve the flame retardant benefits of children's clothing, retain the ability of towels to absorb, help to keep white clothing from graying or yellowing (another issue that can arise from traditional softeners), and retain the wicking ability of athletic wear. 


You add Purex Complete Crystals in with your laundry as soon as you put it in the washing machine, so there is no waiting until the rinse cycle to add liquid softener, and since it is in a solid form, spills are not really an issue (if they do happen, they're easily cleaned up!).  It is also safe for both standard and HE washers!

Purex Complete Crystals are available in three fragrances:

Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossom, and Tropical Splash.



You can find these new Purex Complete Crystals in food, drug, and mass retailers worldwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 to $5.99!
