My Thoughts On Purex 3 in 1 Laundry Soap

This is not a paid post. Not that I don't do them, I do, but they are clearly marked. A couple of weeks ago I visited a blog, that allowed me to sign up for a free sample of Purex 3 in 1 laundry soap. Well I didn't wait for the sample. I bought some on my next visit to Walmart. At my Walmart it was $5.94, for about a 24 loads. I think that is a very fair price considering you get soap, fabric softener, and static remover for your dryer, all in one nifty little pad. I must say I love them. I do not have a dryer, so the third step does not work for me. The soap is obviously the first. I make sure the whole pad is covered before putting in my laundry, so no fabric softener can get on them. I like the price, and the convenience of not having to watch for the rinse cycle. If I had one complaint it would be that it does not make enough soap bubbles for my liking, so I add just a little extra detergent, still saves me money. I will definitely continue to use them. One other laundry tidbit. I hate laundry, but what I hate more is stains on laundry. I thought to myself one day, self if Dawn original dish detergent takes grease off my dishes, will it take it off my laundry? Amazingly I find it does. I squirt one good sized squirt in the laundry water, before putting in clothes, that have heavy dirt, or stains, and poof they came out. I love it, and thank goodness my experiment did not eat my clothes or something. Now I am going out to get some much needed warmth, and sunshine. The new pool is up, and filled, though we can't use it for a few weeks. Sorry Anne, I had to put that in just for you.

Now you are just taunting me. We are waiting for another storm this week. I am definitely going to try the Dawn thing. With 2 girls, stains are a way of life so I am always looking for a good stain fighter.
