Giveaway: Purex Crystals, 3 WINNERS!---CLOSED

Shh, we’ve secretly replaced Susan’s regular fabric softener with New Purex Crystals.

Aren’t they pretty?

Purex Crystals, the oil-free fabric softener that will keep your clothes fresh for weeks without ruining your towels’ absorbency.

Hmmm, what’s this? Why are these bath salts down in the basement? I don’t even use bath salts.

She pauses to look closely at the label.

Fabric softener? How’d that get here? I don’t use fabric softener. It just goops up my softener dispenser, I can’t use it on towels, it’s a skin irritant…

Oops, it appears we may have made a tactical error…

Hmmm, it says here that that it’s not oil-based. In fact it’s main ingredients are sugar and clay! Not a bunch of weird chemicals? Cool!

Purex Crystals (Fresh Spring Waters) ingredients: Sucrose (Sugar), Bentonite (Clay), Peg Disterate (Blending Agent), Fragrance, Sanolin Blue (Colorant).

And I can just throw them in the wash with my clothes?!

Opening the jar.

Hmmm, they smell fresh and springy. Could it be true, can I finally have fresh smelling laundry?

It’s been 5 years since I’ve had scented laundry…we’ve always avoided anything that would leave a residue on our clothes, little Peter’s skin simply can’t take it.

And I like to wash our cloth napkins with our clothes. Cloth napkins that won’t absorb anything are really annoying.

I thought I didn’t want fabric softener.

Maybe I just didn’t want the fabric softeners that were available.

I like.

Yes!

Susan went on to wash several loads of laundry with New Purex Crystals and, well, the rest is history.

Have y’all tried new Purex Crystals, yet? If you’ve ever avoided fabric softeners because of skin irritation or the oily residue left behind that means the sweat pours off your body during a workout instead of being absorbed by your clothes, these are definitely worth a try. Available at local stores in two sizes: 28 oz (32 loads) and 55 oz (62 loads).

But 3 of my readers will get to try them for free! I have 3 coupons to give away, each good for a full-size bottle of Purex Crystals.
