I love being a Purex Insider and getting to try all of their great products!   This time they sent me their new Purex Crystal Dryer Sheets  to try out and before I even had the box all the way opened I could already smell the fantastic scent of Lavender Blossom.   I’m not usually a fan of Lavender,   but this is not the  “old lady”  lavender smell that I am used to….these smell absolutely wonderful!  To me they smell like a bouquet of fresh picked wildflowers…yet they are not too feminine to use for all of the family’s wash.

Of course these work great for softening and freshening your laundry  (as do all of Purex’s products in my opinion)   but they have many other great uses too!   I am always trying to figure out new ways to use them around the house.   One of my favorite ways is putting them inside shoes to get rid of that nasty foot sweat odor….this is especially good for kid’s shoes or shoes worn during athletic activities!   I also like to put them in my drawers to keep my  socks and other items fresh smelling.  One sheet will freshen a drawer for weeks!  Another of my favorite ways to use them is to place them inside my pillowcase.   There’s really nothing better than having a fresh smelling pillow to lay your head on and the Lavender Blossom is perfect since it is a very calming, relaxing fragrance.   There are really tons of ways you can use these.

    I put them in my rooms in a small cup if you cant stand the air freshener because sometimes the air freshener dont last long at all. The Dryer sheets last for weeks because the air freshener make me sneeze and cough

  31. use a old kettle fill half way with water bring to boil add a couple dryer sheets and it makes a great air freshner, let it boil bout 10 minutes on low of course, also i put fabric softener in my car , it helps it smell fresh.

  32. velma murphy says:

    i would put the dryer sheets in my dresser drawer’s and in the suitcase’s ty for the chance 🙂

  33. Mary Cloud says:

    Of course in the dryer and also in drawers to freshen up but I also like to take the used sheets and wipe down the washer and dryer to get any stray dryer lint or dust or dirt off. Also great for wiping the dryer lint off the link screen (as long as you clean it well occasionally to get any build up off).

    • bellahogue13 says:

      I always use it to get the lint off of the screen but never thought to use on the outer parts of the machine…thanks for the tip! You are entry #23

  34. I am kinda boring I use in the traditional manner which is fine but after use do not throw them out put in a clothes drawer makes the scent last longer on your clothes it is GREAT!!!

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Putting them in the registers is a fantastic idea! I also did not know they repelled mosquitos! You are entry #15

  43. I usually put the dryer sheets down in the furniture.. or hide behind things close to the door. so when people first walk in they will smell it, But like you, I also put them in my drawers. it does make your clothes smell fresher for a longer time!

  44. Neko Sam says:

    I love purex dryer sheets they keep my clothes smelling like I just washed them no other dryer sheet that I have used has had the same effect I really love the lavender ones it is such a calming scent I also use them in my car and I use my trash cans to keep odor away I also like putting in my dresser so my clothes always have that fresh scent

      I totally agree that Purex is the best! I love the putting them in the trash can idea too! Thanks! You are entry #11

  47. laura harris says:

    Ok…I think this is quite clever at least for us it is…I put them under the seats in the car…when the sun makes the car hot the scent really comes out…our vehicle has no air conditioning…well that needs no explanation why it is helpful! lol Hey it’s good in the dryer too!

    • bellahogue13 says:

      What a wonderful idea! I have a slight leak in one of my windows and after it rains my car will smell a little musty…I bet that would help! You are entry #10

  48. Renee Velez says:

    WOOHOO!!!! Purex is the only brand of laundry aids I use. I like to put the dryer sheets under the seats in my car. Under the mattresses. I put them in shoes,drawers and closets. I clip them with a clothes pin to fans and vents in the house. A really cool thing is to secure it to your air conditioer filter in your house. I sometimes in the winter rub one on my comb and brush to help with static.!!! ty so much for chance

  49. Kari Wagoner says:

    I always use them in the dryer but I love putting them in my linen closet.
