About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Purex Complete Crystals Softeners

I recently received a sample of the new Purex Complete Crystals Softener.  I've used it in two laundry loads and I'm already sold on it.  It's so easy to add to your load of laundry, just shake a measured amount of crystals into your washer as you add your clothes and laundry detergent.  No messy liquid in the softener dispenser or measuring into a Downy ball.  It adds a very fresh smell to the laundry and my clothes came out of the dryer super soft.  Some really cool facts about this new crystal softener are:

  • Purex Complete Crystals Softener are 92% natural, not oil based like other liquid fabric softeners, so instead of coating fabrics with oil, they work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness that lasts for weeks, not days.
  • Using Purex Complete Crystals Softener instead of traditional liquid softeners will help your towels stay fresh and absorbent because it doesn't have the oily coating that inhibits the towels' ability to absorb moisture.
  • Purex Complete Crystals Softener is the FIRST major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear as it does not impair with the flame retardant qualities.

I'm going to give away a coupon for a Free 28 ounce bottle of Purex Complete Crystals Softener that retails at $5.50.  In order to qualify for this drawing, please leave a comment on what brand of softener you normally use and why you would like to try this new softener.  Drawing will be held on Friday, March 4th and winner will be contacted via email.


  1. I normally use Downy or Snuggle but I just saw the coupon for this and was wondering how good it was. I never use softeners on my towels as I was told it makes them crusty and wears away the softness...would love to give this a try! Thanks for the chance to win! tonidreist@yahoo.com

  2. Lately I have been using the basic baking soda, it eliminates odors and softens clothes. But I do want to find a brand I like that really works well! Definitely would give this a try with your good review.

  3. I quit using softer because of the icky residue it leaves in my washer. I switched to dryer sheets and they do not work nearly as well. I did see the purex in the store and thought that was a pretty good idea. Midwestimaging@gmail.com

  4. I don't use fabric softener (mostly because I don't really know where it goes in the washer). I usually use dryer sheets but don't usually notice the difference if I don't use them. The Purex seems very easy to use :P

  5. Sounds really neat! I typically use Downy fabric softener but I am not brand loyal, whatever, I have on hand that was on sale works for me! =)

  6. This is bad but I don't normally use softener. We have a liquid that hubby will normally use when he does laundry. I'm sure it is generic and what was cheapest.

  7. I usually just use a dryer sheet--bounce or snuggle, whichever is cheapest.

  8. hi i useally use the dryer sheets but i seen a coupon for this and i been dieing to try it. i hate dryer sheets always stuck on the clothes. and the dryer balls are so messy i have four kids so the easyler and the quickest the better. babygirl1345@yahoo.com
