Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review & Giveaway

As a Purex Insider, I am given an opportunity to find out about their new products as or just before they hit the shelves.  I am super excited about their newest fabric softener.  They are crystals rather than a liquid which is amazing!  Did you know that most traditional liquid fabric softeners are oil based?  I didn't know that!  And what these liquid softeners are doing are coating your fabrics in oil.  Over time this residue builds up and allows dirt to stick to your clothes.  I had never heard of any of this but I will be making the switch immediately!

Purex Complete Crystals are 92% natural rather than oil based.  They work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness so that they last for weeks rather than days.  Wouldn't it be nice to have your sheets smell like they just came out of the dryer for longer than just those first few nights?

Here is how they work:

The oil in traditional fabric softeners will also cause your towels to absorb less water.  The oils interfere with the absorbency of fabrics.  Using Purex Complete Crystals will keep your towels nice and absorbent.

I received a sample to try out and I am hooked.  I was excited to hear that I could use this in my high efficiency washer because that was my first concern when I had gotten the sample.  The scent was just heavenly and it really did last.  I can't wait to use it with my comforter because that will just make my whole room smell wonderfully!

Now that you have heard all about this amazing product, how about getting to try it out for free?  Purex is willing to provide a free product coupon to a few readers on my blog.  How do you enter?   Well here it is:
