After five loads of laundry, I can safely say I put this new detergent to the test. I have been using Purex liquid detergent for about a year now, and have almost always added a scoop of Oxi-Clean powder to each load, especially whites and my son's clothes. I found that the Purex Plus Oxi detergent did clean the laundry great, and I did not have to add more Oxi to the machine for most clothes. For really bad, set in stains, I might still add a bit extra Oxi...time will tell! I really liked the light clean scent of my wash after it was finished.
With a five year old boy, most of his clothes end up covered in stains. My normal routine is to presoak bad stains overnight in a mix of Oxi and water. I like that I can use the new Purex plus Oxi as a pretreater too.
After the hurricane passed and our power returned, we spent a lot of time cleaning up two defrosted refrigerators and freezers. Melted ice was all over, so I used tons of bath towels to mop it all up. I relied on Purex plus Oxi again to help with the laundry and was pleased with the results.
Purex Plus Oxi is currently hosting a sweepstakes where one winner will receive $1000 and 250 second place winners will recieve $25! Enter the Purex plus Oxi sweepstakes for your chance to win!
Along with the sample of detergent, Purex also sent me some coupons for free product. In light of the widespread damage Hurricane Sandy caused in nearby areas, I am passing along those coupons to another blogger who is collecting items to donate to the Hurricane victims in New Jersey. Everyone deserves to have clean laundry.
Disclosure: Purex provided me with a sample of Purex plus Oxi so I could review the product. All opinions expressed here are my own.
