Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review

As a Purex insider, we get the opportunity to try some of the products and write reviews. I was excited to receive my bottle, because I love the idea of an oil free softener. I was anxious to see how they worked on all kinds of clothes, and how my clothes would turn out because I mostly line dry. I LOVE the fact that you do not have to wait till the spin cycle to put the softener in. However, I did figure out that the things you have a lot of....the large loads like jeans and towels, not all crystals dissolve. I had to run an extra rinse cycle on the jeans. I do love the scent, I sampled the blue. Sometimes with line drying, you don't always get a pleasant smell after washing and fabric agents. With the crystals, you have a pleasant smell from start to finish. They did appear to be softer than normal fabric agents after line drying. Overall all, I would give this product 4 stars.

Do you want to try the product? I have 2 coupons that the company is allowing me to share for free products. Leave a comment on your favorite fabric agent or what you like about Purex Crystals if you have tried them. Winners will be picked at random on Monday, March 7th at noon.

***I only received a sample size product to try and write review. I have not been paid, reimbursed, or received any funds in trade for this review.***

Five Minute Friday

I have joined a group of other blog ladies and I am trying to participate weekly in this. You just write for 5 minutes flat, just about the topic she gives. No crazy editing....just writing. It is sure to be fun, and I can't wait to read some of the other post.
Today's Topic: When I look in the mirror I see....

I see a multitasker. A multitasker with many titles that just can't seem to just sit down and chillax. I see a mommy with 2 great kids that just can't get their sleep patterns down pat, a wife that desires to please her husband and make him happy, a daughter that can't stands the thoughts and gets crazy scared at the thoughts that her mom will not be here one day because without her I have no clue what I will do. Then I see a friend that loves and prays daily for friends in need, or just someone that can lend an ear to the next caller. I see a girl with a desire to help others no matter what they need. I also see a lady that should own a laundry mat because laundry is a viscious cycle that seems to show up everyday, what happened to the leaves in the garden!

Most of all, I see the physical stresses that life bestows upon us, but what you can't see in the mirror is how I have handled life and all of it opstacles. You can't see my heart for God and others....just the wrinkles and the brown circles on the face of one tired aspiring P31~

That's it....5 minutes!
