CLOSED ~ Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review and Giveaway ~ 3 winners!


I found out that I was chosen to be a Purex Insider again this year. I was very excited because I really like Purex products. What does it mean to be a Purex Insider? It means that I was chosen to be one of the first to try Purex products and participate in promotions. That is fantastic because that means I will also be telling you about the new products and maybe even have special discounts to pass on and/or news about promotions that Purex has going on!

One of my first perks is that I am getting to try the New Purex Complete Crystals Softener. I received a cool "Welcome Kit" that included a sample of the the Purex Complete Crystals Softener and a coupon to try a regular size bottle. What I received was a bottle full of little crystals. I wasn't sure if they could actually do the job. It just seemed a little strange to put crystals in my wash.

The directions said to add the crystals with the clothes in the washer. I thought it was a little funky but went ahead and tried them anyway. It was easy. I added some crystals directly to the wash not the fabric softener area.


When the laundry was done, the first thing I noticed was the clean fresh scent. I was given the Fresh Springs Water scent sample and it smells fantastic. It does have a crisp, clean smell and I really like that. I cannot wait to try the other scents: Lavender Blossom and Tropical Splash.

Even after the clothes came out of the dryer, they still smelled fresh and clean. Three days later when I put on my jammies they smelled so fresh. The clothes were soft and static-free. The crystals worked well.

I have an HE washer and had no problem with the crystals. I washed sheets, towels, clothes and my delicates with the crystals and they all came out fine. Because Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are not oil-based the crystals will not wear down or discolor your fabrics. The crystals do not inhibit the wicking on athletic wear, they maintain your towels' ability to absorb water, preserve the flame retardant benefits of your child's clothes and keep your white clothing from yellowing or graying.

There is nothing like fresh smelling and soft laundry! So I recommend this product. It really worked for me and I cannot wait to try the other scents as well.

Because I am a Purex Insider, I have a giveaway for you guys as well. Three of my lucky readers will win a full value coupon for a free bottle of Purex Complete Crystals!! YAY! Now you know the drills peeps.
