Purex Complete Crystals Softener Product Review and Giveaway!

Recently, I was chosen to be a Purex Insider again this year.  One of the first things I received was a free sample of a NEW product........ Purex Complete Crystal Softener.  You may not have heard of this product, starting today it is available at WalMart.  It will be available at other retailers in January or February! 

I have used other fabric softeners but not on a regular basis.  I have to admit this is one of a kind.  The other fabric softeners I have used came in powders or liquids but never crystals.  I have had a couple of problems in the past of the softener staining my laundry which defeated the purpose if I was going to have to wash it again.   It is very simple to use, just add it in at the beginning of the wash and your done.  Simple as that!  I loved the way it made my laundry smell.  I first used it on a load of towels and everyone loves their towels to smell fresh and inviting and Purex Crystals definitely did.  My husband knew I was trying a new product so he had to smell the towels when they came out of the dryer.  He also gave his stamp of approval. 

Here is a bit information about the product that I found great: 

- Purex Complete Crystal Softeners are 92% natural and not oil-based like many other softeners.
- Purex Complete Crystal Softeners is the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear as it does not impair these flam retardant qualities.  (With 2 small kids, this was great to hear.)
- Purex Complete Crystal Softeners does in inhibit wicking fabrics, making it safe to use on all of your active and athletic wear.

Purex Complete Crystals Softener is available in 3 scents:  Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossom, and Tropical Splash.

Thought of the Day

It seems like the "household" crashes when mom is sick!!  I've been sick since Sunday and I'm trying really hard today to catch up on everything ..... laundry, dishes, christmas gifts to unpack and put away for 4 ppl, etc.  Any help available is much appreciated.
