Before trying Purex Complete Crystals, I had never used fabric softener before. My old washing machine didn’t have a place to put liquid softener (it was pretty old), and I just never had time to deal with the balls of softener – they seemed like they could be annoying and I had heard that they would get stuck and wrapped up in the clothing. So… I just didn’t use it.
I recently got a new washing machine and started looking into fabric softener, just to give it a try. Luckily I became a Purex Insider and received a sample of their new Crystals to try out. This stuff is AMAZING and I am totally hooked! Instead of being a traditional liquid softener, Purex Crystals are exactly how they sound – small crystals. They are added at the beginning of the wash cycle, right along with your clothing and detergent, and thus they get lots of time to infuse into the clothes. They’re also 92% natural, so they won’t give your clothes an oily residue. Plus, the scent really does stay with the clothes for a long time.
The scent is really pleasant and refreshing – I received the Fresh Spring Waters – and they have two other scents, Lavender Blossom and Tropical Splash. One thing that I found with the Crystals is that the scent is REALLY potent! There is a line on the bottle for how much to include in one load, and I tend to only use half of it, or it’s way too scented for our tastes.
Overall I think this is a fabulous product. Coming from someone who had never used any kind of fabric softener before, I really love my Crystals! I’m hooked!
