{Review & Giveaway} Purex Complete Crystals Softener

A few weeks ago I was selected to be a Purex Insider and asked to provide a review for Purex Complete Crystals Softner.  Laundry in this house is known as "The never ending story..." so any help on making doing laundry easier, I'm all for trying it.

I decided to try it out on my son's clothes first... after all, he is a 13 year old boy, so his clothes need the most work.  I figured if the Purex Complete Crystals Softner can help his clothes, they have my vote.

My 2nd favorite thing about the crystals is that they are used during the 1st step of doing the laundry.  They are adding directly at the beginning of the wash.  No more waiting for the rinse cycle and forgetting like I do.

The crystals are 92% natural, and are made of a unique crystal form that works differently than traditional oil-based softeners that coat fabrics with oily residue and it infuses fibers with long-lasting fragrance.

There are three scents available: Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossom, and Tropical Splash. I tested the Fresh Spring Waters.  Upon opening the bottle, it smelled good... but after pulling the clean clothes out of the dryer... well... umm... let me share with you what my 13 year old son said:

"Mom, what did you do to my clothes? They smell so good. Can you make my room smell like this?!?" <--- My 1st favorite thing about the Purex Complete Crystals Softners.

Oh how I wish I could... but can I?  As we speak, his sheets are in the washing machine with the Purex Complete Crystals Softeners, working their magic.

Mom tested, Entire Family Approved!
