Review & Giveaway Purex Power Shot Laundry Detergent

Purex Power Shot DetergentPurex Powershot Laundry detergent is really awesome. I had the opportunity to try this wonderfully new product before it hit the shelves this month. I’m actually loving it, because I loathe doing laundry, and Purex Powershot helps simplify the task. There is no measuring when using this product. It takes the guesswork out of measuring which is awesome because sometimes I’m not sure if I should use more or less, and I stand in front of the washer wondering which would be more effective, and then sometimes I feel that I actually ended up accidentally pouring too much. So Purex Powershot is awesome because all you do is flip the lid then flip the bottle and it will automatically pour the correct amount into the wash. NO MEASURING NEEDED!

Purex Power Shot Detergent

The Powershot engine, inside the bottle, will automatically refill and is ready for the next load of laundry. Which is really cool because it’s quick and ready to use for the next load!

Purex Power Shot Detergent The Purex Powershot comes in two scents, Linen & Lilies and then Mountain Breeze. Now for some reason the regular Purex I have a problem with Mountain Breeze being too heavy, however with the power shot I really enjoy the scent and it doesn’t lay heavily upon the clothes. But the scent also lasts quite a while, which I enjoy because it’s still clean smelling a few days later. This new formula has 50% more stain fighting power in every drop vs regular Purex Detergent which I think might help the scent not be so over powering. But the detergent is powerful enough to get rid of my 4 yr old sons messes.

Review & Giveaway: Purex Fabric Softener Sheets in Sweet Lavender Scent

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Purex Fabric Softener Sheets in the Sweet Lavender scent. When I first picked up the box of softener sheets I could smell the sweet lavender right off the bat, and I wasn’t sure if it was going to be too heavy of a scent for my laundry and also too girly of a scent for my boyfriend and son.

So when I got home I decided to try out the sheets on a load of towels, they are easy enough to tell how long the scent lasts and if it too strong of a scent for clothing. Once the towels were dry I was blown away by how soft the towels were and how the scent was just enough to tell me the towels were nice and clean, but I didn’t get knocked over by an over powering scent at all! Once that was accomplished I felt it would be ok to try them on clothing as well. Turns out my boyfriend didn’t mind the scent at all, and it was nice refreshing scent for him too. No one had any adverse reactions to the sheets, since it is something new and we have a toddler I’m always weary about changing things with my detergent or softener sheets. I can say for sure that no one had any allergic reactions, and my son, who is 3 did wonderful with the softener being on his clothing.

Now, according to the box the Purex Fabric Softener Sheets have 3x more fragrance vs previous sheets, so I’m going to assume they are talking about their own brand. I can say without a doubt that this is true. You can smell the sheets without having to open the box and anything the box comes into contact with, bags, other products from the store etc, end up having a hint of the fabric softener’s scent. Which I don’t mind at all.

The fabric sheets claim to

– Add Freshness and softness throughout your household- Reduce Static Cling
– Repel pet hair and lint

Now for these features I’m not entirely sure whether or not this actually does the job and I’ll explain why. In the summertime here in Arizona we don’t have much static cling, so that also prevents the lint and pet hair from clinging to us. But once winter rolls around we end up shocking everything and everyone and all the pet hair, and my own hair included seem to just cling onto my clothing, it will be interesting to see how well the static cling works in the winter.

The fabric softener sheets do actually soften the clothing and make cotton feel especially nice and soft, I love it.

You can also use the softener sheets to repel smell by putting them in your clothing drawers, your gym bag or even the bottom of your trash can and make your home smell amazing at the same time!!

Purex Insider: 20 Mule Team Borax Review and Giveaway!!!

I recently was able to try the laundry additive 20 Mule Team Borax. The box tells me that it helps boost your original laundry detergent while also helping with any hard water you may have. Borax 20 Mule can also be used for cleaning purposes as well, which is really exciting because I absolutely love a product that has more than one use for it!

So I decided to try 20 Mule Team to the load of laundry I was doing which happened to be sheets for our bed. I figured I could feel any difference from the sheets since I love soft sheets and what not. So the box explains to only use a half of a cup and toss it into your washer. What really intrigued me about 20 Mule Team was the fact that it talks about helping with hard water. Hard water is definitely a problem where I live here in Phoenix. My house does not have a water softener so we have hard water. I noticed that my sheets would still come out feeling a bit more stiff than they should have. I attributed that to the fact that we do have hard water and I really got bummed about not having a softener. So I tried Borax 20 Mule and was impressed.

Once everything was dry and on my bed I was able to tell that, at least to me, the sheets felt a bit softer, not as stiff as they typically feel because of our hard water, and anyone living in Arizona knows that we have hard water! So I felt like the 20 Mule Team

did what it was supposed to do, it helped make my sheets not feel as hard and scratchy as they can when I only use detergent. I just felt like they’ve done a great job, so much so that I am still using my sample box, and I think I might go out and buy some more once its all gone!! It was really good! As far as I could tell there was no smell to the Borax, it is in powder form and can irritate the skin slightly if touched directly, but I think it all depends on your allergies and such! No one in  my family has had an adverse reaction to this at all either so for us it works!

I definitely would recommend this to friends and family who are looking for a boost for their laundry!!

Other aspects of 20 Mule Team Borax that I like are that it can be used outside of laundry as well. I haven’t tried it yet because I’m using it up in my laundry but I can’t wait to try this out myself either.
