PUREX CRYSTAL’S NEW SCENTSPLASH REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

SCENTSPLASH

I have been a huge fan of Purex Crystals since they first came out.    I have used them for a few years now and didn’t really think they could get any better until they came out with this new liquid form.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love the crystals.   I especially like that I can use them in my wax burners and make my entire house smell wonderful, but the liquid truly works better for laundry.  It leaves a much stronger scent on your clothes than the crystals do.   All week, I have been enjoying the fresh smell every time I pull a clean shirt over my head or lay my head on my freshly washed pillow and the scent hasn’t faded at all.

I love that the smell also blends perfectly with the scent of the new Powershot detergent since that is my favorite.  Together they really leave your clothes smelling fresh, clean and wonderful!  While  doing laundry you can smell the scents all through the house and I love it.   There’s nothing better than a great smelling home and it makes it sort of pleasant to have to do the laundry.  (Sort of….it IS still laundry though)  I am really looking forward to trying the other scents they offer and if it’s anything like normal,  I will have a hard time picking a favorite!  Purex products always smell so good and I love how long they last.

PUREX POWERSHOT DETERGENT REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

powershot12

One of the best parts of being a Purex Insider is getting to try their awesome new products before they even hit the shelves.   Their new detergent,  Powershot,  is wonderful but it’s the bottle itself that I am most pleased with.  They have designed it so that it does the measuring for you.  I am not a particularly messy person but I always seem to get some of the liquid on my hands when I’m loading the washer and this bottle totally eliminates that.   Whoever designed this is genius!  It automatically dispenses the liquid you are using and it fills up for the next load too so you never have to measure again….. and no more messy hands.   I also like that you will get the amount of loads you expect from it.  No more guesswork.  You simply use one dose for normal loads or 2 doses if you have a large or extra soiled load.

powershot13

I was given the Mountain Breeze scent to try  and it truly leaves your clothes smelling amazing!  It lathers well and my clothes look great.  I didn’t notice any fading or shrinking and the colors stayed vibrant.  I’ve used a few detergents in the past that made my colors fade and caused my clothes to look older so that is always something I worry about.  (The only thing that may not work for some is the fact that it is scented.  You may want to test for allergic reactions before you use it if you suffer from allergies.)

And now the giveaway part…….

Enter to win a bottle of Purex Powershot detergent from Bella’s Blog.  Good luck!

Purex Insiders was kind enough to include some coupons for a free bottle of their new Powershot detergent and I have decided  to give one to a lucky reader.   (If I get a good amount of entries I may decide to give away two)  If you would like a chance to win your own bottle just enter using the Rafflecopter widget below.

PUREX CRYSTALS AROMATHERAPY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

purex1  I love being a Purex Insider  because it gives me a chance to try out all of their new products before they hit the shelves.  This time they sent me the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy  in the “Well Being” scent and it smells wonderful!   I especially like that while the clothes were washing the aroma spread throughout every room in the house and make the whole  house smell fantastic

Just toss a little bit in the washer when you add detergent and your laundry will smell good for weeks.  I love it for bedding and towels.  I fell asleep last night with the covers pulled up to my face because they smelled so good.  It’s nice too that the scent blends well with the scent of their laundry detergent and dryer sheets.  After using them all I end up with super soft, wonderful smelling clothes and bedding.

purex2I have also been putting these crystals in my wax burner.  They work just like the wax melts and heating them really makes the scent pop!  It only takes about a half a cap full to fill the burner and it smells good for several days.  It’s actually less expensive than the wax melts since it takes so little.  I can’t wait to try the other scents in this new line.

PUREX CRYSTALS DRYER SHEETS REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *CLOSED*

7

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.

PUREX NO SORT DETERGENT REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *CLOSED*

purex1

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…..

purex2

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 …….

purex 3

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!

AND NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!

Since Purex Insiders was also kind enough to send me some coupons for a free bottle of the new No Sort detergent I have decided to give one of them to a fan of Bella’s Blog

purex5

To be entered to win this great coupon simply comment right here on the blog  (Not on Facebook)  and tell me what is the worst laundry mishap you have had.   Did you turn a load pink because you didn’t see the red sock hidden in the pile?  Maybe you added too much detergent and had bubbles everywhere?  Just tell me what happened….or make something up….I don’t care….just make it about laundry or Purex and I will count it 🙂  No random comments will be accepted.  (When you comment it will have to go to moderation so you won’t see your comment right away….but no worries…I usually get them fairly quickly)

I will number the entries as they come in and then at the end of the giveaway I will use Random Number Generator to choose the winning entry.  Only one comment will count per person and you must be a fan of Bella’s Blog on Facebook to be eligible to win.  This giveaway starts now and will run until Tuesday, April 15th at 8:00 pm.

PUREX “FABULOUSLY FRESH” CRYSTALS REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *ENDED*

I received this package from Purex Insiders a few days ago and I couldn’t wait to try it but I  had just finished laundry and had to wait .   I finally was able to try them out today though.   I have always been a fan of Purex laundry items and I especially love the Crystals because they leave your clothes smelling so fresh and clean for weeks.

purex

First off,  I have to say how awesome these smell straight from the bottle…..as soon as I opened them, the whole room smelled fabulously fresh!  They definitely named this one well.   I even like the color of the crystals and they smell as nice as they look….like a little slice of Spring.  They have a vaguely flowery smell but mostly it’s just a fresh outdoorsy scent that I think would be pleasing to most.   And they’re not too “feminine” smelling to use on all of your family’s clothes either.  I do wish they weren’t limited edition though because I do really like this scent and will miss it when it’s no longer available.   Maybe with enough feedback they will decide to keep it permanently…..I can certainly hope anyway!

 

purex2

I used the Crystals  in a load of clothes (along with my Purex detergent and Fabric sheets of course) and they had that whole section of our house smelling wonderful.  Moving them to the dryer triggered the scent again and the dryer heat working with the scent  really made the house smell great!   They seemed to make the clothes feel softer too and that’s always a plus.  I personally love this new scent and highly recommend that you give it a try.  I haven’t had a chance to tell if this scent will last for weeks as it says,  but I do know that previous scents I have tried did last a long time, so I expect this one will also.   There is nothing better than pulling your favorite article of clothing over your head and having it smell wonderful when you do  🙂
