Purex® plus Oxi laundry detergent – review and giveaway.

22 Aug

I just got home from a wonderful 9 days at the lake. While I was away, my husband had picked up the mail and waiting for me on the counter when I walked in the door was a bottle of Purex® Plus Oxi laundry detergent. Perfect! Because when I come home from being away from anywhere, I unload everything right into the laundry room and get the washer started first thing. This time I was bringing home 9 days worth of sandy stained up kids lake clothes. This detergent was going to get a run for its money that’s for sure.

I opened up the cap and was suprised by how fresh it smelled – but with a name like Fresh Morning Scent I guess it better be, hey! It wasn’t too powerful though, which is nice because I tend to be sensitive to strong scents and shy away from them. Putting all smells aside, both from the nasty laundry and the detergent, the real test will be how well it works on my kids stains.

Although I didn’t pretreat the stains, it can also be used as a pretreater for your tougher stains.  Just pour a little Purex® plus Oxi onto the stain, rub the stained fabric together, wait 5 minutes and launder as normal. With the amount of pretreater I have used in the past, I can say that having a detergent with the ability to pretreat as well is a welcome plus and is something I would use often had my daughter not outgrown her lipgloss eating messy phase.

Because the product I received was in liquid form I am not sure if it comes in tabs or not, so my next trip to the superstore I will be checking that out. I’m one of those people who still believe that more is better when it comes to soap – so tabs (or pods) keep me under control and actually enable me to get the recommended uses out of the container. If these do come in tablets, it would be a huge plus for me. I also like that it has a hypoallergenic formula as I said earlier, I am sensitive to scents and tend to get rashes from harsher detergents.

Overall, I was quite happy with the results. All the laundry came out just as clean as they would have had I used my regular brand. The majority of the stains were removed, it smelled great and nothing faded. It still didn’t fold itself so that was a little disappointing…but it never claimed to do that, so that was just wishful thinking on my part.

If it’s wishful thinking on your part to also get your hands on a free bottle to try out, then hooray!! because I have 3 bottles waiting to give away to 3 lucky winners.
