Purex Complete Crystals Softener {Review & Giveaway}

 

 

purex-crystals-logoI’m a huge fan of fabric softener! My favorite thing about it is how it makes my clothes smell so good and I especially love to use it on towels and sometimes my whites.

As part of the Purex Insiders teams I had the opportunity recently to try out the new Purex Complete Crystals Softener and I LOVE it! They have three wonderful scents Tropical Splash, Lavender Blossom, and Fresh Spring Waters- which I received. The smell isn’t too strong but still strong enough to leave a nice scent on your clothes when their wash and dry cycles are completed. I actually love the new idea of crystals rather then then liquid fabric softener because I have a front loading washing machine that tends to accumulate water and start to smell over time and one of the suggestions for getting rid of it’s mildew smell was to stop using liquid fabric softener in my wash. Well I love fabric softener so I was a little disappointed about that but now that Purex has brought out this new formula that’s 92% natural and not liquid based I can continue to use fabric softener! purex-crystals-hero

So why make the switch from traditional liquid fabric softener to Purex Complete Crystals Softener? Did you know that most all traditional liquid fabric softeners are oil based, which means they work by coating your fabrics in oil? I certainly didn’t know that!

Facts about Traditional Liquid Fabric Softener:

1. Oily residue left behind can interfere with your towels ability to absorb water, which means while my towels might smell nice they are loosing their actually purpose.

2. They can also hinder and reduce the effectiveness of your sportswear- how you ask because the oil left behind will reduce the effectiveness of wicking fabrics and prevent from drawing sweat away from your body during a workout.

3. And the number one scariest (at least to me) fact about regular liquid fabric softener, it can make your children’s sleepwear less effective. The fiber in their sleepwear that is treated to meet the flame-retardant standards can be impaired when coated with oily residue left by most liquid fabric softeners.

But WAIT don’t give up on fabric softener all together because Purex has come out with a GREAT NEW SOLUTION! Purex Complete Crystals Softener. start-infuse-last

Facts about Purex Complete Crystals Softener:

1. Purex Complete Crystals Softener is 92% natural, not oil based, so instead of coating fabrics wit oil, they work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness that lasts for weeks, not days.

2. Using Purex Complete Crystals Softeners instead of traditional liquid fabric softeners will ensure your towels stay fresh and absorbent.

3. Purex Complete Crystals Softener does not inhibit wicking fabrics, making it safe to use on all of your active and athletic wear.

4. Purex Complete Crystals Softener is the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children’s sleepwear as it does not impair those flame retardant qualities.
