About a month or so ago, I signed up to be a Purex Insider and was accepted. I received my first goodie box in the mail today from FedEx containing a cute little bottle of Purex Complete Crystals Softener. Perfect timing too, because I was just about to throw in a load of laundry. I received a small bottle (enough for about four loads) of the Lavender Blossom scented crystals. The scent is wonderful, not to overpowering and not too weak. The clothes come out smelling fresh and and feeling soft.  I’ve always been a fan of Purex because their laundry products are very reasonably priced, yet perform as well as the expensive brands. The Complete Crystals Softener is definitely a unique new product. Although I have a regular old washing machine, the Crystals are safe for High Energy machines as well.  The following information is from the Purex Complete Crystals fact sheet:

WHAT IT IS > UNIQUE CRYSTAL FORM, 92% NATURAL FABRIC SOFTENER
Introducing Purex® Complete Crystals SoftenerTM*; a purer way to get laundry that smells clean and fresh for weeks. 92% natural, this product’s unique crystal form works differently than traditional oil-based softeners that coat fabrics with oily residue, because it infuses fibers with long-lasting fragrance. In addition, since you add it directly with your laundry, this means no more waiting for the rinse cycle, no messy residual gunk in your washing machine, and no more stains from spilling liquid fabric softener.

HOW IT’S USED > ADDED WITH LAUNDRY AT THE START OF THE WASH CYCLE
Why struggle with plastic fabric softener balls, risk staining your clothes or waste time
waiting for the rinse cycle? Simply add Purex Complete Crystals Softener directly with
your laundry at the beginning of every wash cycle to infuse fabrics with long lasting
freshness.

HOW IT WORKS > CRYSTALS DISSOLVE INFUSING FABRICS WITH FRESHNESS
Laundry scent lovers will perk up as freshness is infused into clothes with this new fabric
softener. Over time, traditional oil-based softeners coat fibers causing harmful oily
residue to accumulate. Purex Complete Crystals Softeners penetrate fabrics to reduce
fiber entanglement and smooth frayed fibers providing a naturally soft feel.

WHY IT’S DIFFERENT > SAFE FOR ALL LAUNDRY AND BETTER FOR FABRICS
Do ALL of your laundry—worry free! Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are safe for
all laundry and will not harm, wear down or discolor your fabrics like oil-based softeners.
Safe for all fabrics, including baby clothes, athletic wear, towels, and whites. Unlike other
softeners, Crystals WILL:

  • Preserve the flame retardant benefits of your children’s clothes
  • Retain your athletic wear’s wicking ability which draws sweat away from your body
  • Maintain your towels’ built-in ability to absorb water
  • Keep your white clothing from yellowing and graying vs. using traditional softeners
