Brag about a household product, I mean. But, for this, I have to make an exception...
First things first, I had been noticing that my laundry, although clean, did not have that clean fresh smell that (my mama's) laundry normally has. Boo! And I feel like I use more than enough detergent to produce some kind of fresh scent. Right?
Anywho, I can't actually remember how I heard about this product...maybe one of the gazillion commercials that run on Bravo between segments of RHWofNJ, but, as I made my way down the detergent aisle at WalMart, I came across this stuff and had to check it out:
"Introducing an entirely new way to freshen your laundry. Purex Crystals are 92% natural crystals that go in at the start of the wash, so they spend more time with your laundry infusing them with long-lasting freshness."
These crystals come in 3 different scents to choose from: Tropical Splash, Lavender and Fresh Spring Waters (which is the scent I went with)
So I simply dropped a capful of these tiny Purex Crystals into a load of wash (as the drum was filling up for the wash cycle--not rinse cycle) and let them do their thing! 1 load later, I had the best smelling laundry. EVER.
AND! Get this! It also serves as a fabric softener. HOLLLLA!
This gets me really excited because the shirt I am wearing right now smells so wonderful and clean and is super soft (not crunchy and stiff like usual)!
There are other similar products on the market, like Downy UNSTOPABLES (which I have not tried) but may do the job just as well. Whichever you choose, it's worth every penny to have NO FUSS soft, fresh smelling laundry!
Try it for yourself!
