A few weeks ago I posted about Purex for Sensitive Skin. It was a product I was excited about and wanted to share. Since then, I've become a part of the Purex Insiders team. As a welcome, Purex sent me a sample of a brand new product, just released yesterday in Wal-Mart stores, called Purex Complete Crystals Softener. All opinions of the product are my own.
Yes, crystals. They're pretty cool looking and smell great. But what I found really interesting (and a little disturbing) from the information Purex sent is that most brands of traditional liquid fabric softeners are OIL-BASED, meaning they work by coating your clothes/fabrics in OIL. Yuck. Of course, this explains the oily looking mystery spots I have found on numerous clothing items (which really irritates me!) The oily residue can decrease the absorbency of your towels, it can impair the effectiveness of the flame-retardants on childrens' sleepwear, and reduce the effectiveness of the wicking properties of sportswear. Yikes!
This new Purex Complete Crystals are 92% natural and NOT oil based! They work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness that they say lasts for weeks, not days. I've only just started using it, so I'll have to let you know if the scent stays around that long! However, it does leave a nice, fresh scent...and what's better than the smell of fresh laundry?! Except for maybe freshly baked chocolate chip cookies....but that's a different post all together. (Now I want cookies)
If you are interested in trying this, just leave me a comment. Purex is giving away three
Yep, a free bottle! That's an "upgrade" from my previous post :)
