Purex Crystals: Fresh Mountain Breeze Review and Giveaway!

Purex Crystals are a great way to enhance the freshness and scent of your laundry. Even if you use scented detergent, sometimes your laundry needs that extra boost! (especially if you have young children or messy animals in the house) Purex Crystals are added directly into your top-loading or front-loading washer, and are safe for high efficiency washers. They are safe for all types of loads, including your children's clothes, active-wear, and even your bedding.

Purex Crystals are made with a 90% natural formula, which makes them a great selection for anyone who is eco-conscious; although they are highly scented, I feel as though the natural formula is less harsh on sensitive skin as other formulas can be. Here is what the Purex Crystals contain:

Sodium Chloride, Sodium Silicate, Fragrance, Silica, Propylene Glycol, Liquitint Bright Yellow, Liquitint Blue HP

You can find Purex Crystals at most major retailers, in 18.5 oz, 28 oz, or 55 oz. bottles. They are available in the new Fresh Mountain Breeze scent, Lavender Blossom, Tropical Splash, or Fresh Spring Water. Have a new addition to your home? Purex also makes a special formula of crystals specifically for baby needs. 


Since I am part of the Purex Insiders program, I was lucky enough to be selected to review the new Fresh Mountain Breeze Crystals. I am obviously already a huge Purex fan -- I love the cost of their products, as well as the quality. I always feel like my laundry is fresh and smells great when I use Purex, but I am not breaking the bank. I have to admit that I am fairly happy just using my Purex detergent and fabric softener sheets in the dryer, but I was more than open to try a new product. Now I am hooked! I love the Fresh Mountain Breeze scent; if you don't use softener sheets in the dryer, this could either be an alternative or something additional. All you have to do is fill up the cap on the top of the bottle of Crystals (about a third of the way for a small load, or all the way up to the top for large loads) and dump them directly on top of your laundry.

I hang a lot of my shirts and pants up to avoid shrinkage in the dryer, and it always bothered me not to have the extra scent of the dryer sheets, as well as the benefit of not having static cling. Now my clothes smell better than they did even WITH the dryer sheets. The Fresh Mountain Breeze scent may not be for everyone -- it is very strong, but also smells clean. I have very sensitive skin and I did not find it irritating at all. I also have allergies and sensitive airways (especially to strong, overpowering perfumes) and again, it did not bother me to use this formula. It is so easy to add, and makes a world of difference! I am guilty of sometimes forgetting about my laundry overnight while it sits in the washer, and in the past I would have had to re-wash it because of the slightly musky or damp if I forget I really don't have to re-wash it. I also had the misfortune of my dog deciding to squat down and pee on a pile of my clothes yesterday (she NEVER pees in the house, so I was very surprised), and I can tell you that these crystals were probably only thing that helped remove that horrible scent.
