Review & Giveaway: Purex Crystals Aromatherapy
With three kids (and another on the way) I suppose it's a given that I do a lot of laundry. Not just the kids clothes, but my clothes, my husband's clothes, bath towels, dish towels, sheets, blankets...the list goes on. My mother-in-law has jokingly commented on the "laundromat" that appears when I get behind on my chores and she finds me sitting on the couch folding, surrounded by five or six giant piles!
I really like to have a good scent to my laundry. I'm not talking "hit over the head with flowers" but I want my laundry to smell clean, fresh, and sweet. In the past, we tried several different scented detergents but it seemed like the ones with scent always broke out someone or the scent was waaay too overwhelming. And since we also cloth diaper, I then had to find something else that was safe to wash them in. I finally found a "free and clear" type of detergent brand that worked well for us all - no breakouts, no overwhelming smell, and it could be used with any type of clothing, diaper, or item that needed washed. But that also meant no smell whatsoever! Bummer.
I'd seen some commercials recently about different types of scent boosters but really didn't know much about them. So I was pretty excited to be chosen to review Purex Crystals Aromatherapy through the Purex Insiders. Purex Crystals Aromatherapy are in-wash scent boosters that have unique aromas blended with essential oils. Their scent infusions are energizing and long-lasting.
We were given the scent "Well Being" which has a delightful flower blossom scent. (The two other scents available are Energy/citrus and Serenity/water lilies.) The bottle has a detachable cap you can use to measure out your crystals before tossing them directly into the washer. It works with front or top loading washers - just put in a little or a lot before loading your laundry. I wanted to check out the scent first and see what it was like before washing my husband's work clothes, as I knew he didn't want to go to work reeking of flowers, baby powder, or anything like that. So I tried it out on a load of towels initially. The smell was light and very pleasing but not over the top floral - just the right hint of scent. I've done several loads with it now, have varied the amounts on some - a little more or a little less - and the scent has been continually great. The first load of towels I did the other day were put away in my bathroom closet and while typing this, I went in, grabbed one out and did a "sniff test." Still freshly floral smelling! So I'm definitely hooked. :)
