Purex Complete with Zout Review & Giveaway!

Today I got my first product since becoming a Purex Insider - me likey so far. I thought they'd send me a sample size and expect me to review it but no...full size Purex Complete with Zout thankyouverymuch. Super thrilled.

So thrilled that I pulled some of our constantly multiplying laundry out and started a load up. We don't really use fabric softener that often since I have two little boys with sensitive skin. We just usually use a free and clear detergent and then toss some free and clear type of fabric sheets in the dryer and call it a day. My laundry is going now so I'm anxious to see how it worked.

The first thing I realized is how yummy it smells. Since I normally use plain free and clear products I miss out on the smell. This is the Fresh Morning Burst and it smells somewhat berry to me. Very good, and not too strong. I can't handle when laundry has too much smell to it so I like this, as it's not too overdone.

I didn't have any tough stains to test this out on (shockingly) but it did get out some ketsup and some paint that connor came home with on his khakis so I am a pleased mama so far. I'm actually looking forward to testing it out when they bring home something serious like blood or grass. The product works as a pretreater too so it does double duty in that way.

So I've heard of Purex of course and I've heard of Zout but this is the combo of the two products that promises to clean your clothes and take on your toughest stains. With two dirty little boys I know tough stains for sure. (I just wish it could do something about jeans with holes in the knees!)

The product contains three enzymes to fight the stains:
1. Protease: works on protein based stains like grass & blood - both common in my house
2. Amylase: handles starchy stains like chocolate & tomato sauce - again, common stuff here
3. Mannanase: works on guar, which is more common than it sounds (but just as gross). It's in ice cream, salad dressings, bbq sauce and lots of other foods. This stuff is sticky which is what makes it so tough to get out of fabric
(don't be too impresssed, I took this info straight from the Purex fact sheet they provided me with so that I'm actually giving you accurate info)

I definitely would like to try the crystals. I am anxious to see the difference in these vs. traditional fabric softeners. Oil in fabric softeners? Yuck. Love that you can put them in at the start of the wash!

I visited the Purex link and I absolutely just love them. I bought a bottle of their Fresh Spring Waters scent and my laundry smells so beautiful.
