Purex PLUS Crystals (#giveaway)

Ah, Spring is here! While I love the smell of spring, I have to say I love the smell of fresh laundry even more. Purex recently released a new detergent, Purex® detergent plus Fabric Softener with Crystals Fragrance.

This new format of laundry detergent combines the cleaning power of Purex with the freshness (and softness enhancing) that Purex Crystals brings.  As you can see, it has “dirt lift action”, so it’s not just for the delicates, you can use it on the messy clothes (like the ones the kids are wearing playing outside in the fresh spring mud). And speaking of “fresh spring”, the scent that’s currently available is called “Fresh Spring Waters”, bringing the smell of spring right into your laundry room.

Plus, remember how much I like Purex Crystals? Well, now you can get them in with your detergent. Greg liked this because we love the Crystals’ smell and impact, but it was one less step for him to remember as he did the laundry. I tried to look into the bottle and see the Crystals, but they weren’t obvious in the liquid laundry detergent. But, by feel and smell, it’s clear they are in the formula.

All in all, we are definitely adding Purex plus Fabric Softener to our laundry repertoire. If you you’d like to, Purex ise  available at mass retailers, or you can enter below to win three FREE bottles of Purex Laundry Detergent plus Fabric Softener. This giveaway ends on Sunday night (March 24). Good luck!

Halloween Recovery: Help From Purex Plus Oxi

This Halloween, I went out dressed as a zombie. This meant rolling a white outfit in the mud and then dripping fake blood on it. Honestly, I didn’t care if it wasn’t going to get clean after this, but I had a secret weapon up my sleeve to help me just in case I changed my mind.

Purex plus Oxi takes my favorite laundry detergent up another level by adding stain fighting power. There are three enzymes in this formula that each work against different types of stains to restore clothes to the pristine original condition they were in before you zombified or toddler-fied them.


When Greg threw my costume in the wash with Purex plus Oxi, I just hoped for the best. The costume is for the most part stain free! (I went a ‘lil crazy with the fake blood, so there are some spots remaining but they are only really noticable to me.) Purex plus Oxi officially became our stain fighting detergent with that proof.

As usual, this formula is hypo-allergenic and has a light scent (two of my detergent requirements).
Not only does it work in the standard wash, it was can be used as a pretreater by pouring a little bit of this laundry detergent on the stained area, rubbing it in, and letting it soak for 5 minutes before throwing in the wash. I didn’t have to do this to get my costume clean, but good to know!

Does Purex plus Oxi sound like something you’d like to add to your house? Never fear, Purex plus Oxi is priced for the everyday household. Bonus, I have three coupons to give away to one lucky winner. Contest ends next Sunday, November 11.

As you know, I’ve been working on slipping into a nice pair of skinny jeans before my 30th birthday. Let’s be honest, I am doing a good job toward the goal, but I am not quite there yet.

New Sheets Plus Purex Laundry Detergent…

…equals one happy Mama Burgher! We put new sheets on the bed last night, fresh out of the dryer and I have to tell you, it was incredible. Thank goodness that Purex gave us a chance to try out their new Ultra Packs laundry detergent before it hits stores.

This is the newest innovation from Purex, an experience that is truly “laundry simplified”. The pack pops into the wash with your clothes (or sheets in our case) and just dissolves with the water. Nothing spills, there’s no lifting of heavy bottles, no measuring. Keeping our skin sensitivities in mind, Purex was willing to send us the “Free and Clear”, but there is also a “Mountain Breeze” version available, too.

Mr. Burgher was most excited of all. He opened the package of Ultra Packs and went to work at the washer. Next thing I knew, he was showing me the pre-measured pack of ultra concentrated laundry detergent and asking me to give it a squeeze. It was evident that he was liking the ease of use. He just threw it in with the water, tossed the sheets in, and walked away. Easy!

The sheets came out smelling fresh and feeling clean. I think we’ll take it. This product made our lives easier, and these days, that’s a win! Doing our sheets, the kids’ clothes, and our clothes did take up 5 packs (almost a third of the package of 18), so I’m not sure that we’ll be able to pay the price of convenience. (And can I say, I am not sure how long a bottle of detergent lasts us, so I have to leave this one up to Mr. Burgher–we get bottles that have enough detergent for 32 loads, so they last us about 6 weeks. One pack of Ultra Packs will go in about three weeks.) Either way, we still loved them and are glad we got the chance to test these out.

If you are interested in trying out this new product, look for it on shelves in February!

Thank you, Purex, for giving us a chance to test out your newest product! We were given a pack of Ultra Packs to test for this post; however, the opinions here are my own.
