Have you recently noticed this new product on shelves at your local store? I can imagine it caught your attention as it did mine! It's such a unique idea that I was, in all honesty, a little skeptical at first. I've never been a huge fan of liquid softeners, and I wasn't sure how Purex Complete Crystals Softners would work, since I prefer to use dryer sheets.
As a Purex Insider, I was extremely lucky to receive a sample of the Purex Crystals in Fresh Spring Waters scent. They make doing laundry even easier! Just add a little to the washing machine when putting in your laundry detergent and you just have to remember to put the load of wash into the dryer when it's time. They work by penetrating the fabric and infusing freshness that lasts for weeks, not days.
I found that when I opened the washing machine I was able to immediately semll the Purex Crystals scent. It wasn't overpowering, and I immediately fell in love with them! The same fragrance stayed with them throughout the time spent in the dryer, and the clothes came out softer than ever before. Even my husband was able to notice a difference with his work clothes, which are hard to get the 'work smell' out of.
One of the best parts, is that this is a 92% natural product!!!! I was even more surprised to learn that traditional liquid fabric softeners are oil-based, which means that they leave a layer of oil on your clothes and other laundry. After all, I want to know that my clothes are clean, not that they're being coated in oil. This coating that is left from liquid softeners also reduces the ability for towels and other fabrics to absorb water and other liquids. And, I definitely noticed a difference when drying dishes with the towels that were washed with the Purex Crystals.
