I have 6 people living in this house, two of whom are babies, two of whom are boys and one of whom always seems to slop on his shirt. Can you guess how much laundry I do a day? I do on average 2-3 loads of laundry a day and once a week it is more like 8-10 because I do all the bedding, towels and clothes. I can't let the kids do the laundry because I cannot trust them to put the right amount of detergent in and lord forbid they have to use fabric softener i think that would be a terrible request for me to make. I am pretty much over doing all the laundry by myself and while I love my kids it is time for their butts to start doing their own laundry. For a long time we had been looking for a product to help me with this for the boys, one that was easy to measure and hard to mess up. Now thanks to Purex I have solved my laundry problem and the boys are much more careful on getting dirty so they don't have to do laundry more then once or twice a week.
I was given the chance to review the Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheet in the Pure & Clean scent, it also comes in Spring Oasis and Tropical Escape. I myself prefer the Pure & Clean because it is 100% hypoallergenic with a subtle fresh, clean scent. Perfect for people with sensitive skin or the babies in our household. Each sheet is a full loads worth of laundry soap, which is set to relese during the washing cycle. Then once the clothes are done in the washer you throw them in the dryer, laundry sheet and all, the heat activated strip then releases the fabric softener and anti-static. Now I will be the first one to stand up and say we do not generally use laundry sheets in our household but with these sheets I do not mind at all, I do not feel the Pure & Clean is strong and leaves my clothes feeling fresh without smelling terrible.
The boys are able to successfully do their laundry without messing things up, we have a front loading machine and we just throw the sheet in with the laundry and it works as well as the laundry detergent that we add to the top dispenser. Not that it ever happens in this house but for people with smaller families and less laundry you can cut the sheet in half and use it in half a load if thats what you have. Buying the Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets I have found is so much cheaper then buying the laundry soap, and fabric softener so I can imagine how much more you would save if you threw the cost of the dryer sheets in as well.
The laundry sheets work in both front and top loading machines, and in all water temperatures and levels. You can still use bleach with the laundry sheets if you need to, it is safe to use on colors but not recommended for hand washing. If have a super dirty load of laundry, like I did when the kids came back from camping over cub weekend, you can add a second sheet if necessary. I think my favorite thing I want to mention is the portability of these sheets. I plan on taking them with us to Great Wolf in March and to Florida in January because they are small enough to travel with and I love them enough that they are worth it.
You can buy the laundry sheets in two size packages. The starter kit which contains the dispenser and 20 laundry sheets. Then you can buy the refills which contains 24 sheets and just reuse the dispenser. You can visit the Store Locator and see where you can buy them close to you.
