Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review and Giveaway (3 Winners!)



I have been a huge fan of Purex for awhile. As a matter of fact, as soon as I was on my own and had to not only do my own laundry, but pay for all of my laundry supplies, I quickly learned that Purex was my favorite. Purex is affordable and it works great. In my opinion Purex was already a college kids dream, but they have taken it even farther. Purex keeps inventing new products to make doing laundry even quicker and easier while keeping our clothes smelling great. I am thrilled to announce that I am now a Purex Insider!


What does this mean? It means that I am going to be working with Purex to bring you news, coupons, reviews and giveaways of their great products. First up is the new Purex Complete Crystals Softener. The Crystals are available in three lovely scents: Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossom, and Tropical Splash. These innovative Crystals not only smell amazing, but they are super easy to use. You just measure the amount of Crystals you need into the lid and pour the Crystals into your laundry machine. The end result? Your clothes smell and feel amazing. The best part is the freshness lasts for much longer than other softeners.

The Purex Complete Crystals are 92% Natural. So, they do not have the yucky oils that coat fabrics like your traditional softeners. Instead. the mostly natural Purex Complete Crystals infuse your fabrics with a long-lasting fragrance (it lasts for WEEKS, not hours!). The Crystals are also safe for all fabrics. So, you don't have to worry about them harming your favorite clothes.


Here is a video that will tell you more about how they work:



I was able to try both the Fresh Spring Waters and the Lavender Blossom Crystals. Both of the scents are incredible. I really loved the Crystals! They made my clothes feel and smell wonderful. They were also really easy to use. I admit it that the first time I used them I made sure all the Crystals dissolved. The second time I used them, I just tossed them on top of my clothes and left. I received the same result in both cases: great smelling, soft and clean clothes. Ohh and in case you are wondering what I used for detergent: Purex, of course! I use the Purex 3-in-1 sheets. I have not used anything else since these wonderful sheets were invented. Anyways, back to the Crystals. You can buy the Purex Complete Crystals Softener at most food, drug and mass retailers. They cost anywhere from $3.99 to $5.99 per bottle, and they are well worth it!

The selling point for me is adding at the beginning of the wash. I have a Downy ball but don't always remember to put it in and end up missing the rinse cycle.
