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 No Sort for Colors Detergent Review & Giveaway

This sample of detergent came in the mail the same day that Bradley got new brightly colored underwear.  It was perfect timing to try out the new Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent and see how well it worked. 
Purex has a new anti-color-transfer technology that helps keep dyes from transferring onto other fabrics in the wash.  It reduces color bleeding accidents which happens to be a big Uh Oh in our house.
I've never liked sorting clothes.  The only items I separate from clothes are towels and sheets.  And that's just because I like washing those in warm water.  Somehow warm water kills more germs, right? (And yes, I know that warm water doesn't kill germs any better but it just sounds like it would)  So since I didn't like sorting our clothes, I always wash clothes in cold water to prevent the colors from running.  Now I can easily wash my colors in warm water and still keep up my non-sorting habit.
I used Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent yesterday and even threw in Bradley's brand new brightly colored underwear.  It was all washed in warm water.  There was only one pair of underwear that came out with just a tiny bit of red bleeding and everything else was picture perfect.  Leave it to me to read the directions AFTER the load was finished and it says on the bottle to wash new pieces of clothing separately at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load.  Oh well.  My life is so busy I probably won't think about washing a particular piece of clothing 5 times before combining.  I was happy enough with the results that it didn't bother me the one tiny little bleeding mark.
