Laundry much?

Laundry. It is actually one chore I don't mind doing. Which is a good thing since there is always so much of it! I have used several different laundry products over the years and haven't always been brand loyal.

A while back I signed up to be a Purex Insider. We have the privilege of trying out products before they become widely available to the general public. Fun, huh?!

Last week I received a sample bottle of their Purex Crystals Softener. I will admit here that I don't normally use fabric softener (EECK!!)
My skin is quite sensitive and Kennedy's can be as well. So I had cut that out of my laundry routine. But I decided to give the Crystals a try. And I was happily surprised. I have used it on all my loads in the last few days and am loving the smell! YUM! It was super easy to use - just pour it directly into the machine. And best of all, none of us have noticed any skin irritation from it!Here’s the game-changer for Purex. Purex Complete Crystals is 92% natural, not oil based. Other fabric softeners, both liquid and sheets are oil based. (Did you know that?! I never knew that!!) They coat your clothes in a thin layer of oil, which build up over time. That’s why your towels aren’t as absorbent after using an oil-based softener. Hmmm...never knew that either - did you?

You can use Purex on your towels, sportswear, and performance wear (like wicking fabrics, etc).

You can also use it on children’s sleepwear! Purex Complete Crystals is the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to be using on children’s sleepwear because it does not interfere with the flame retardant coating on the clothing.

Purex Complete Crystals will also help your whites to stay white, and your brights to be bright. When you wash with an oily softener, that oil dulls the material and causes it to pick up dirt and other debris that will not wash out. Purex Complete Crystals is 92% natural and not oil based, so your clothes will last longer and look better. Just the thought of all that gross oil on my clothes kind of icks me out!

  1. I also don't use fabric softener! We have that in common. :) I just use Kirkland brand (costco) detergent and Bounce dryer bar. I would definitely give this product a try though...especially for free! :)

  2. Oh, and I already subscribed to your blog awhile ago on my google reader. I love seeing the cute pics of your girls and your awesome sewing projects! I have a goal of doing some sewing too some day! Forgot to keave my email in my first one but I'm sure you know how to track me down. :)
