There are several laundry enhancers available on the market today. I catch myself strolling down the aisle sniffing the various products. Finding the right product can be challenging. One of my favorite products is the Purex Crystals line. With a variety of scents, you should be able to locate a favorite. The crystals also pair well with the Purex detergent, and Purex dryer sheets.
Purex has introduced a new scent to the Crystals line. Fresh Mountain Breeze may be my favorite scent yet. The aroma appears to be floral with a hint of possibly fresh linen? The floral aspect of the Crystals doesn't seem to be overwhelming. It is quite lovely and energizing! My children and I always tease about stealing all of the fragrances from products. We all took turns smelling the crystals with the similar opinions. Three of us enjoy the scent while one wasn't as fond of it.
The cap is easy to remove from the bottle. It can be slightly difficult to replace the cap when you are in a hurry. Sometimes it tends to slide back off of the bottle. This is only a minor issue as I always keep the cap on the side. The top pops open easily, and tightly snaps closed when finished. I knocked the bottle over with no spills. However, it may open if dropped on the floor or hard surface.
Measuring the amount of Purex crystals is a breeze. Simply pour your crystals to the fill line of your choice: Small, medium, or large loads. For added freshness, use more. I always fill mine to the top on large loads. For smaller loads, I use 1/2 a cap. This product is a natural softener and is safe for your clothes. After reading the back of the bottle, this product can be used in both topload and front loading machines. It states not to pour the crystals into the dispenser. Always pour directly onto clothing at the beginning.
The crystals are a salt-like appearance. You can find the ingredients on the Purex website. You can see how each crystal is infused with fragrance in the picture below. The amount of crystals below is nearly 1/2 cap.
I've never had any issues with my clothing after using this product. It dissolves well during the washing cycles. If it makes any difference, I almost always use cold water while washing. We have a small water heater which makes it difficult to wash with hot water. I've found this method also helps prevent premature fading. I continue using dryer sheets to help with static and freshness. The crystals enhance the softness of my clothing, and the scent lasts quite awhile.
