As a Purex Insider they sometimes send me new products to try and this time I was sent a bottle of their new No Sort Detergent.  I was really hoping to get picked for this mission since I do a lot of laundry but seldom have many whites and I don’t much like washing little loads…..which usually mean the whites sit in the laundry hamper longer than they probably should.  How great it would be if this stuff really worked and I could just throw them all in the washer together.   So as skeptical as I was I decided to give it a try….but I will admit that I used a white t-shirt and a pair of socks that my husband didn’t care if they did turn pink….just in case….

Now the scary part…..I put the clothes in the washer…and it about killed me to put the red and the white in together I must say…..I put in the detergent and went about my business very curious as to how this would turn out…..


They finished their cycle and I transferred them to the dryer…..being wet I couldn’t tell for sure yet if there was any color transfer but they looked pretty good…..I didn’t really notice any pink.  Hmmm….this just may work …….

FINALLY they were dry and I could see the results….. Wow!  It worked!!  The shirt and socks are both still just as white as they were when they went in.   There is absolutely no color transfer at all!!  I am impressed and  happy that now I can just wash the clothes and not have to wait until I have enough whites for a load of their own.  Thanks Purex for a wonderfully innovative new product!!  I am a fan!

  1. Rhonda Clemens says:

    My worst laundry accident would be pens & a full pack of gum!

  2. Debbie Rhoades says:

    I have turned an entire load of whites hot pink from a hidden red sock! I was highly upset!

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Yea that seems to have happened to a bunch of us! So sorry but you missed the giveaway though…it was closed about 20 minutes ago 🙁

  3. Roxanne Penn says:

    My husband washed my DRY CLEAN ONLY dress. It didn’t survive the wash 🙁

  4. Tiffani P. says:

    I have turned whites pink before and one time I was trying to get stains out f a couple of my sons shirts and grabbed the cleaner with bleach instead of the shout. I sprayed both shirts before I realized it. Oops. But now I double check the bottle every time.

  5. Edna Myers says:

    All I can say is real men wear pink undies… right??? LOL yeah it happens often here.

  6. Jasmine V says:

    accidentally put some white shirts into a colored group while washing :/

  7. We have guinea pigs and in the bottom of their cage I use fleece blankets. Well normally I wash those loads separate because well.. they stink. I accidentally got one mixed in with the towel load. Oh man, I had to wash all the towels like three times before we could use them again. Now I make sure before I put my towels in.

  8. Darcy Panak says:

    Hmmmm…..lots of mishaps! Lol I guess the worst was washing a dark shirt with a light colored one and getting nasty dark splotches all over the light colored one. Ruined it.

  9. Jennifer Haffner says:

    I do all of the laundry in our household but I don’t check pockets. My mother didn’t and neither do I. Even though my husband knows this, I have sent his wallet through the wash quite a few times. Well one day I washed a load of our laundry and threw it in the dryer without noticing anything wrong but when I went to pull it out there was ink everywhere! All over both of our clothes and all over the inside of our dryer. Apparently my husband left a pen in his pocket and it exploded in our dryer from the heat. I was so angry and yelled at him about it for a while because I had to wipe out our dryer with numerous different things (nail polish remover, paint thinner, isopropyl alcohol, etc.) to get it out. It took about 5 hours and I was never able to really save any of the clothes. I told him the next time he left anything in his pockets I wasn’t going to do his laundry anymore and he could do it himself. I know he didn’t do it on purpose but probably looks back on it as a little revenge for me washing his wallet so many times but what he doesn’t know is that now I secretly check his pockets before washing his clothes.

    • bellahogue13 says:

      I don’t check pockets either, my hubby knows this too, but I think I may start now! Ugh that’s awful! I would have made him get it out of the dryer though! You are entry #71

  10. natalie yeoman says:

    i accidentally shrunk my dads clothes when i put them in the dryer

  11. Christina Cruver says:

    My biggest laundry mistake (that I’m willing to admit to, lol) is bleaching my husband’s army uniform.

  12. Melissa Sharma says:

    After returning from our honey moon I washed out brand new digital camera by accident. It was destroyed and we couldn’t even retrieve the pictures.

    • bellahogue13 says:

      That’s terrible! I hope other people had pictures to give you to replace them! You are entry #68

  13. Christina Grimm says:

  14. Jamie Skinner says:

  15. kendra hardcastle says:

    I have washed my husband’s shoe yeah just one it was on the bottom of the pile of clothes and it shrunk.

  16. Gina Garnett says:

    Ok, I’m admitting this here for the first time LOL I actually washed a brand new pair of dark wash jeans (accidentally) with a load of t-shirts and other clothes. I will say that indigo dye is SOOOOO hard to remove from clothing. But I can say the blue t-shirts never looked bluer LOL

  17. I washed ink pens many times and I always Have Kleenex in my pockets…lol (what a mess). You did a great job on the review and I really hope to win this. I’m on a fixed budget and this will really help

    • bellahogue13 says:

  18. Sarah Kurtz says:

    My daughter hid gum in a shirt pocket. Didn’t come out and it was a cute shirt!

  19. Purex is sure my number one brand !!

  20. sapphire says:

    The worst? I’m still learning how to do laundry. Who knew you actually have to listen to the instructions on the tags. I just thought it was an option. Mixing and matching clothes turned into a nightmare of color explosion in my washer. Oops.

    • bellahogue13 says:

      LOL yea I too found out the hard way that the instructions are there for a reason. You are entry #60

  21. Roxie mcgilberry says:

    I was washing my boyfriends shirts one day (this was before I knew about bleaching whites) I threw everything in white shirts and his blue work shirts he had one of those complicated front loaders and it was set on hot which I didn’t know… Everything came out blue and everyone started calling him smurf.. I felt bad his sister did end up showing me how to use bleach properly since my mom never showed me!

  22. Angela Tillman says:

    I missed an ink pen in my husband’s work jeans. Ended up ruining two t-shirts and a pair of shorts that are now paint clothes.

  23. I wanna win lol

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Debbie you have to comment with an answer to the question hon….random comments don’t count 🙂

  24. Mary Kimball says:

    Oh my god, I did just that….somehow I missed a pair of my hubby’s Tightie Whities that got mixed up with the colored clothes…..well he ended up with Pink Panties! LOL! Needless to say those ended up in the trash!

  25. Stephanie Marie Najar says:

    I turned my daughter’s favorite white bear pink when I didn’t even see her toss it into the basket with reds and pinks! Ugh!

  26. Diana Sumners says:

    All I can say is chopstick and clothes do not mix. It sure makes the inside of the washer smooth though.

  27. Leslie Corcoran says:

    My oldest son is autistic and he loves to help with the laundry. He doesn’t always do the best job sorting and he gets insulted if I go behind him to check. This would be great for the loads he doesn’t sort just right.

  28. my kids left sharpies in their school clothes! yes marks all over their good clothes & of course. .. They were put in the dryer by someone other than me.

  29. Jill Jackson says:

    I actually put a dishwashing detergent pod in my washer instead of a Tide pod. I didn’t realize I had done it until I went to put the Tide one in the dishwasher and it was to big. It didn’t hurt anything

  30. Jackie Wolinski says:

    Carmels were left in the pocket of a pair of jeans. YUCK!. Took a lot of scraping and washings to clean that one.

  31. Pamela Ferenz says:

    I washed my cell phone I left in my pants! Ugh!

  32. ive bleached, I’ve shrunk, and the worst thing is…We have well water, and sometimes when you let it run it gets muddy… i still have to rewash the clothes cuz they look like someones wallered in red clay mud! LOL its horrible!!

  33. This sounds so nice for when my husband does laundry. He tries to sort but does not always do it correctly so sometimes the clothes come out with a tinge to them. I would put this one off to the side only for him to use. LOL that way my clothes come out clean like when I do them. Thank you for doing the review for us and then passing this great product on to us.

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Thank you. There must be something about men…none of them can sort them right LOL You are entry #48

  34. My worst laundry mistake was when my daughter left bright pink lip gloss in her pants pocket and it got all over the new clothes I just bought for her and brother! I almost cried every thing was ruined.

  35. steve weber says:

    I borrowed a really expensive sweater and didn’t notice the care instructions and I shrunk it 2 full sizes.. not happy!

  36. Mary Cloud says:

    I have a really pretty light pink shirt with a cross on it that got mixed in with darks and now it is not so pretty and looks very dingy…made me really sad, I rarely wear the shirt anymore 🙁

  37. There was a pink sock intertwined in my FAVORITE blue jeans which put pink spots on them. Therefore, they became stay at home pants. Jeans have 2 zippers at the bottom of the legs. UGGGGGGGHHHHH.

  38. Brenda Starr Johnson says:

    By accident, I washed my favorite black top in the same wash as my towels and yep… lint all over the black top

  39. Terry Finnerty says:

    My Daughter had a piece of gum in her pocket I usually check (you know children) don’t know how I missed it but it was all over everything had to throw out most as it melted on and stained panties bra’s and shirts ughh wanted to scream. Needless to say I now do a double check before I wash anything 🙂

  43. Tammy Welsh says:

  47. heather hess says:

    i washed a load of clothes and as i was putting it in the dryer i noticed a kleenex had been left in so it was all over the clothes. after i got them out of the dryer i seen something in the bottom of the dryer, it was a melted crayon. at least the crayon wasnt on any of the clothes. needless to say i now check everything before it goes into the washer 🙂

  48. When my husband and I first got married he tried to do the laundry and thought you put bleach in everything to kill germs and make clothes cleaner. Um yeah all my jeans had bleach spots on them even though this was the late 80’s it was kind of in style just not as bad as ours looked. LMAO.

  49. Cindy Kuykendall says:

    I do my husband’s police uniforms and the are khaki colored polyester blend somehow my dogs red chew toy that he loved got mixed in with the uniforms and they came out with red splotches all over them-the dog toy came out a bit worst than before but the pups grabbed it and ran. It took a lot of pre-washing to get the red out and I still think I see pink when he wears that one 🙂

  50. Dana McCurdy says:

    I need this so bad I have family just throw anything in the washer and then things turn different colors I really need this.

  51. laura harris says:

    My son always seems to over stuff the washer and it gets off balance and shakes the house…and then he complains they’re not clean enough…He doesn’t like me to buy cheap laundry detergent…he complains if they don’t smell good..oh he never separates the colors…this would work perfect around here!!!!

  52. Crystal Zamudio Rico says:

    When I was young my mother said to put the Clorox in the white colors so I did then I looked at the washer and it was actually the colored clothes lol oppss but thank god nothing happened to the colors like seriously hoe that happened!!!! And few years my daughter left few pieces of crayon in pants which it did destroy few of the clothes 🙁 thank you for this :)))

  53. Senia Fuentes says:

    Well, this one night, I put a couple of outfits for the kids to wear to school. My 4 yr old likes helping with the the laundry. Anyways, he put one of his dad’s working pants(he is a mechanic) in the washing machine without me seeing. LOL, next thing I know when it was time to dry, the whites were a total disaster. From there on, I always supervise him when he helps.

  54. Neko Sam says:

    I left my napkin in my pocket and it went in my wash ! All my clothes was covered in white stuff ! Was so hard to take out! Also Ones I put way to much soap bubbles Everywhere !

  61. Jennifer Lang says:

    I made the mistake of washing rugs then a load of baby clothes right after and ended up having to re wash the babg clothes seeing they had sand washed into them along with soap. It was awful. Had to beat them before putting them in the dryer. I’ve also turned clothes colors not knowing certain articles of clothing drained their color.

    • bellahogue13 says:

  66. The worst laundry mishap was letting my husband do the laundry and he put my nylon DO NOT DRY jacket in the dryer! It fit my youngest son after that!! I was so upwset and still haven’t found a similiar jacket. Yes, I have done the hidden red sock in the whites before and my hubby and sons were not happy about their pink shirts!!

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Ugh! I hope someday you find a similar jacket. Maybe karma gave him pink shirts LOL You are entry #17

  67. Carol Yemola says:

    When I was first married, I didn’t have a clue how to do laundry. My hubby had (yes … I said had) a beautiful wool sweater. I thought that the best way to get it really clean was to wash in hot water! And then I put it in the dryer!!!! By the time I was done, the adult size XL wool sweater became a youthful size S!!!

  68. As a Mom of three kids, twin 13 year old boys and a 10 year old daughter, and a husband who works outside, I am always doing laundry. Today was 9 hours and still going. Where do all these clothes come from?? Between sports, school, a husband who wears 20 layers at a time and takes it off all in one pile, and a daughter who changes constantly and puts clean clothes with dirty, I have had it!!! Im done sorting, folding, drying, and putting it all away. Well I also gave up on going though pockets! BIG MISTAKE!!! I have washed chapstick,crayons, markers, lipstick, and various food. My clothes are full of spots, grease you name it. I have bleached many items to the point were it has eaten items of clothing. I lie to the kids when they ask about a certain shirt, that I don’t know where it is. I know it is in laundry heaven.

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Oh wow! You DO do a lot of laundry! I don’t blame you for twisting the truth a little lol. You are entry #15

  71. rose leger says:

    My five year old had a turtle in her pocket,it went through the wash luckly I found it in the bottom of the washer before going into the dryer. It walked fun for a few hours but was otherwise fine,still have it, won’t fit in pockets any longer. Needless to say all pockets are checked before washing these days!

  72. Joanna Cappellini says:

    One time, a couple years ago my Mom did the laundry, all 3 of our clothes. She did these baby blue pants that I love with other clothes. When the washer was done, she took them out to put them in the dryer. I was in the kitchen right next to the washer while she was doing this, I glanced over and seen my baby blue pants with white spots all over it. I said, what is that?! I guess she tossed them in by accident with all the other whites and bleach. I was so mad! She just shrugged it off and said, “It looks like it’s supposed to be there, kind of like it’s tie-dyed.” I’m like, “Oh, but god forbid if they were YOUR pants, you’d be FREAKING!” Another time, it was over 6 years ago, I did my favorite sweater, put it in the dryer, not thinking it’s that kind of material that’ll shrink. I took it out after it was dried and my jaw dropped. It looked like a baby dolls sweater! It was so small. That was when my Mom decided to not let me wash anyone elses clothes except for mine, lol. Then, she ruined my baby blue pants, lol. …

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Oh wow! I bet she would have felt different if they were hers! And I’ve done the same thing to a sweater! You are entry #11

  73. Sharon caron says:

  74. Angela Vaught Montgomery says:

    Left my phone in my pocket and washed my phone,needless to say it was ruined, it washed rinsed and tumbled dry!! lol

  75. When I first started doing laundry, after about three loads I broke the washer because I put way too many clothes in there. Needless to say my parents were mad!!

  76. Kimberley Thomas says:

  79. Grease on my clothes when hubby washed his work clothes with my clothes what a mess.

  80. Brianna Ketchum says:

    I never really had a mishap but always coming up with missing socks after washing and drying happens way to much for us

  81. I washed a load of undercloths and added bleach. Well that went fine. The next load was a load of colored shirt. Well I guess I splashed bleach on the rim or rid and my colored shirt touched it. I had to throw away 3 shirts.

  82. Kari Wagoner says:

    I bleached a whole load of jeans. They were all ruined!
