I am a Purex Insider and I had the opportunity to try their latest detergent Purex Plus Oxi! This stuff is GREAT! I am already a fan of Purex detergents because they smell great, clean well, fight stains and are much better priced than other brands boasting of the same stain-fighting prowess. Regular Purex does such a great job that I usually wait to use their special stuff for those garments that I’ve been avoiding due to the stains they contain. Just a week or so ago my daughter set me up for the perfect way to challenge Purex Plus Oxi to see if it could pass the test…
The school nurse called me before noon on a Wednesday to inform me that Ella, 6 years old, had fallen from the top of the Spider (a domed-monkey-bar-looking piece of playground equipment) and landed face first in the tanbark (mulch). She managed to bust her lip, loosen further some loose teeth and banged up her nose. According to her teacher, blood was spurting out but Ella couldn’t quite see the amount of blood so she couldn’t give me those details. I’m thankful for her teacher since the realization of said blood would have probably caused my child to panic. She was fine after getting cleaned up by the nurse with only a coat full of mulch and some blood stained gloves to bring home. The coat was hopeless, but I looked at those gloves and decided Purex Plus Oxi could tackle this problem. Then I got distracted and came back to the open washing machine and started a cold, gentle cycle for the kids’ nicer clothing. I added the Purex Plus Oxi that was sitting in plain reach and then tossed the gloves in with the clothes. As I shut the lid I realized that I didn’t pre-set the stain with the detergent nor did I use any type of warm water. Oops! It was too late so I let the cycle go. I was surprised and extremely pleased to find those gloves sparkling clean WITHOUT any trace of blood! That blood had been dried on there, too!
I don’t need to tell you how sold I am on this product! It works as a pre-treater, too, when one actually remembers to do it! Once again the Purex brand has not let me down! They have yet to create an inferior product! Better yet, I can still afford their products, use less of it and still gain great results. I’m not one to be brand loyal, but when the brand you like is actually one of the best priced on the shelves (with or without a coveted coupon) why try another?? Have you tried Purex? What are your favorite products from their line of detergents and softeners? Is there another brand you prefer? Share with us in the comment section below.
