Purex Complete Crystals Softener


First, I want to announce I am a Purex Insider, so I was sent a brand new product to test and review.  The product is a brand new concept: crystals instead of sheets or liquid.  My entire life, I have always used fabric sheets added to the dryer.  I am skeptical when trying new products, but let me share my thoughts with you.

When I am doing laundry, I always add the detergent first, then the clothes.  I also wash on cold, unless I am doing whites.  Before adding the clothes and after adding the detergent, I added the measured amount of Fresh Spring Waters scented Purex Complete Crystals Softener.

I didn't notice a difference when the washer was done.  I threw the clothes into my dryer without adding a dryer sheet.  When the clothes were done, I smelled them.  The scent is pleasant and not overwhelming.  The clothes don't have static.


The thing that most impresses me is the concept that parents don't have to separate non-flammable clothing from their normal wash.  The crystals can safely be used on non-flammable clothing.  I can remember when my son was young, there wasn't anything I could use to keep static cling away and to soften his pajamas.  This is a miracle for moms who would like to streamline their clothes washing.  Throw it all into the same load now!



The available scents are Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossoms, Tropical Splash.  I am excited to try the Tropical Splash scent next.

I will continue to use the Purex Complete Crystals Softener.  Are you willing to change your current fabric softener and test out the brand new Purex Complete Crystals Softener?

  78. I'm really intrigued by these and would love to try them. I'm loving how natural they are and that they lack the oils found in other softeners.
