Recently a bottle of Purex Complete with Zout was delivered to my door (Yes! TO MY DOOR!). You can imagine my excitement to try a new product that is needed in my daily life. I have a 4 year old and 21 month old. My son, the younger one, is a much messier eater than his sister. There are times when he’ll be eating and I’ll look at his shirt and sigh to myself knowing it is highly probable that those stains aren’t coming out without a major fight and even then it isn’t at all likely. But Purex Complete with Zout boasts that it contains a triple enzyme stain remover (Zout). Each enzyme targets a different type of stain. One fights protein based stains (grass), another fights starchy stains (tomato sauce) and the third works against Guar, a sticky thickener in many foods (ice cream).
I had company visiting when I received the bottle of detergent so I set it aside for the next big stain. Of course I had my chance to use it that very same weekend. My precious son truly enjoyed his pizza for his Sunday lunch at Pizza Hut. He had on a white, button down, collared dress shirt and a vest (Yes, he looked stinkin’ adorable!) that day. Though he sported a bib, that nasty pizza sauce attacked that pristine shirt with vengeance. I was at a restaurant so I couldn’t just strip him down to start working on the stain so I calmly prayed that the new bottle of Purex Complete with Zout really would work. I went home with every intention to pretreat that stain immediately, but our company was leaving and I got distracted. Over two hours later I remembered to pretreat with some of the detergent. Again, I had good intentions to come back 5 minutes later and drop it into the washer….but I was distracted once more. So, an hour or more passed by before I washed that shirt. I used the detergent with my load of clothes as directed. I only used the warm/cold cycle because this shirt was only supposed to be washed in cold water. I was extremely skeptical that those stains would be out since I couldn’t even use the hottest water setting. When the cycle was finished I removed the shirt from the machine and searched frantically for every spot of pizza sauce that I had pretreated. Guess what I found…(drum roll, please)…NO pizza stains! Seriously!
This stuff really works!
Stay tuned for a giveaway for a coupon to try this detergent for yourself!
Purex sent me this product to review but the opinions are all my own.
