A New Product I Was Asked To Try And Share


A while back, I told you how you could sign up to be a Purex Insider.  I was recently notified that I had been accepted into this program.  Not long after that, a nice package showed up at my door.
I was very excited to see what was inside.  When I opened it, here is what I found:

I was sent a small sample of a new fabric softener product, as well as a free coupon for a full sized bottle.  I have not been to a store to use my free coupon yet, but I have tried the sample bottle.


First off, let me say that I have never used a liquid fabric softener, only dryer sheets.  I really liked this product, though.  The clothes had a great smell when they came out of the wash.  I thought that the smell would mostly go away by the time they came out of the dryer, but it didn't.  I washed my bedsheets and comforter with the crystals, and have been really surprised that the scent has lasted so long.  It is the 5th day since I washed them now, and I still smell the scent when I climb into bed.  My sample was of the Fresh Spring Water scent.  I thought that after the first night the scent that lingered smelled a bit like men's cologne, but I tend to like the smell of men's cologne. ;)  For a second, I thought that my husband had tangled the comforter up and thrown the side from his side onto my side of the bed, but then I realized that it was still the scent of the crystals.  I do not normally like for scent to linger on my clothing, because it is normally too strong and gives me a headache.  This scent, however is really light and barely noticeable on clothing unless you take a big sniff. I notice it more on the comforter since I have that pulled up to my nose. =)

This new Purex Crystals product is marketed as an alternative to liquid fabric softeners.  I received an informational sheet in my package that explained many differences between this new crystal product and traditional liquid fabric softeners:
--Liquids are oil based and leave behind a residue that then holds onto dirts and oils and prevents the items from cleaning properly in the wash.
--This same residue can also interfere with the absorbency of the fabrics.
--The residue left behind from liquids can also impair the flame-retardant treatments designated by the government for children's sleepwear.  In other words, the clothing will no longer self-extinguish in a fire like it should.
--The oily residue also interferes with the ability of sports wear to draw moisture away from the body during workouts.
--The new Purex Crystals product dissolves and infuses into the fabric instead of staying on the surface, so this residue is not present.
(Personally, I would love to see some info about how they compare to dryer sheets.)

The Purex Insiders program is offering prizes to the 100 bloggers who send the most visitors to their site, and I would love to be one of them, so please go check it out and print your coupon.

Also, once I send them a link to this post, they have promised to send me a few e-coupons to share with my readers.  I'm not sure about the value or what they mean by e-coupons, but be looking for a post about that coming soon.
