Purex Complete Crystals Softner Review & Giveaway CLOSED

I was intrigued by the idea of Purex Crystals.  Sometimes it is as simple as pretty crystals in a bottle:)  Isn't presentation everything?  While I thought the crystals were pretty it was a whole other matter if they worked.  I selected the lavender scent and this was a great choice.  I love the smell of lavender.  It is supposed to be calm inducing and I can confirm that it is.  I washed my flannel sheets my first time with Purex crystals.  Unlike other fabric softeners you add it at the beginning of the cycle.  Super easy.  No waiting.  No trying to anticipate to the rinse cycle.  Just toss … [Read more...]
