Purex Complete Crystals - Review & Giveaway

Photobucket

Did you know liquid fabric softeners contain up to 20% oil per bottle? Ew! I never knew fabric softeners used oil! This oil content has a lot of ill effects on your laundry including the following: it makes fabrics feel slick and decreases absorbency, it should not be used on children's sleepwear as it coats the fibers and makes them flammable and it inhibits wicking capability on performance sportwear.

I am in love with the new Purex Complete fabric softening crystals! They're convenient because you add them at the beginning of the wash cycle and they simply dissolve in the water without the requirement of a special delivery tool (ball, bar, etc.) Just sprinkle and go! As a mom I'm also very happy to have a fabric softener that is safe to use on my children's flame-resistant sleepwear.

I wanted to give these crystals the "bed linens & bath towels" test. I love soft fresh smelling sheets and towels especially when that softness and lovely scent lasts. I could really feel a difference using the crystals versus my old oil-based liquid fabric softener. The sheets don't feel slick, the towels feel light and fluffy and definitely absorbent, and the scent of all the aforementioned is FAB-ulous!

* All these benefits are great, but my personal favorite feature of Purex's crystals is that this sugar based crystal is 92% natural!
