Purex Plus Oxi Review & Giveaway (CAN 9/19)

Purex Plus Oxi

They say nothing in life is certain accept death and taxes. I think “they” forgot one thing – laundry. It’s never ending.  Just when you think you are caught up the laundry basket is full again.  And if you have kids not only is the laundry pile eternal but it’s also full of nasty, hard to clean goodies.

I’ve tried a lot of laundry detergents.  I mean a lot.  If you peeked into my laundry room right now you would spot six or seven different bottles of detergent (not to mention the stain removers).  For the most part I find they all work about the same. But I’m always willing to give another one a shot.  So, when I had the opportunity to review the new Purex Plus Oxi I signed up.

One of the requirements I have when it comes to laundry soap is that it comes in an unscented variety.  Purex Plus Oxi has a “Free & Clear” variety so that is a big bonus.  It turns out the bottle I was sent to review was not the Free & Clear but the “Fresh Morning Burst” kind.  Not a problem.  My daughter and I both have allergies and sensitive skin but my husband doesn’t and he prefers laundry detergent with a little bit of a scent to it.  So I thought I would use it for his clothes.  However, when I opened it an gave it a sniff test I found it to be pretty mild (and it’s hypoallergenic) so I actually did a load that had a little bit of everybody’s stuff in it.

Because the load had some of my daughter’s clothing in it there were some pretty good stains.  I followed the directions on the bottle and pretreated the stains with some of the detergent.  Bedding I wash in hot water (because of allergies) but clothing gets washed in cold water in our house.  By the way Purex Plus Oxi can be used in both regular and high efficiency washing machines – another bonus.

So how did it work?

Purex Review

Here are a couple of examples of how things turned out.  The stain in the first picture is a purple freezie.  That’s a tough one.  And the yellow dress has some ground in dirt.  Another nasty stain.  If you look really, really closely at the after shot of the blue dress you can see a little bit of purple left on the embroidered flower.  But it’s really very minor, especially since that dress sat in the laundry basket for 4 or 5 days before I washed it.  And the ground in dirt on the yellow dress is just gone.

Overall I was really quite pleased with the results. I try my best to catch and pretreat stains before they go in the laundry but it doesn’t always happen.  So, having a detergent that has that extra little bit of stain lifting power is important.  And the scent of the Fresh Morning Burst really is very  mild.  I will probably buy the Free & Clear in the future so I can also use it on the bedding but my daughter and I have both worn clothes washed with the scented version with no issues. And my husband can use for his laundry without fear of being “too smelly” for our sensitive noses!  And another bonus about Purex is that it’s really quite affordable.  I generally find it’s much less than the other leading brands and you certainly are not sacrificing quality!
