#Purex Plus Oxi Review and #Giveaway (Ends 12/8)

As I have mentioned before, I am a Purex Insider and as such I get to try a lot of their awesome laundry products. Most recently I was sent some Purex Plus Oxi to test out.

About Purex Plus Oxi

A few things I was told about Purex Plus Oxi:
  • The "most powerful Purex detergent available" It works on over 101 stains!
  • There are 3 stain fighting enzymes in Purex Plus Oxi and each enzyme works against different types of stains.
  • Works in both high efficiency washers and traditional washers
  • As with other Purex products-it is not going to break the bank! It costs half the price of leading brands! :)
  • Hypoallergenic formula with light fresh scent.
  • Can be used for a pretreater as well. Just pour a little on the fabric, rub stained item together and let sit for 5 minutes before putting in washer.
What did I think:

Well, my sons gave me the perfect chance to test out this product! To REALLY test it out. My baby boy, E-Pup was eating chocolate one morning right after Halloween, and went to hug his big brother (E Dawg) before school. That was a big problem, and E Dawgs shirt looked like this:

He quickly changed his shirt and ran out to the bus stop, while I went to work on removing the stain from this white shirt. I pretreated it with the Purex Plus Oxi:

And washed it and dried it. After school, E Dawg was so happy to see that his shirt now looked like this again:

Apparently my little E-Pup did not think that was a tough enough test though. He is 20 months and into everything. So, he went ahead and did this to his other brother, Army's bed sheet:

ACK! Well, I tried out the Purex plus Oxi again and this is what that corner of the bed looks like now:

YEAH!!! It worked! On both of the baby's messes! I was very happy with the performance! It really worked out!

Also, I want to make a quick note about the scent of the Purex with Oxi. Most of you know I usually buy dye free, scent free detergent because I have kids and a husband with SUPER sensitive skin! This is a lightly scented detergent so I was a bit nervous about using it. One of my VERY sensitive skinned guys is Army. That is his sheet with marker covering it above. I washed his sheet in the Purex plus Oxi (lightly scented), and he has not had any skin outbreaks or rashes at all. So, at least for my sensitive skinned family, the scent was not an issue!

My best trick for getting stains out is to use Dawn dish detergent especially on grease stains.

I use cold water and soap to scrub out the stain by hand before putting it into the washing machine.

I don't really have any tricks. Pretreating the stain helps though.

I usually soak my stains in OxiClean until I'm ready to throw the next load in.

For white shirts, a white bar of soap (like Ivory) rubbed on the stain has saved me many times.

I use oxiclean and presoak the clothes.

Jenny said...

I don't really have any tricks - just pre-treat and wash as soon as possible.
