Purex UltraPacks Review

Laundry.  No one loves doing it, but it is a necessity of life (unless you want your hubby to be the smelly kid in med school!).  I have a minor love affair with the Purex line of laundry detergent, for several reasons.  First, it comes in a "free and clear" variety - a necessity for somebody's ridiculously sensitive skin in the Dr. + Mrs. family (not mine!).  Second, not only is it reasonably priced, it often goes on sale!  Third, it works.  Well.  Even in cold water.  

When Purex sent me a package of their brand spanking new UltraPacks to try and review, I was pretty darn excited.  These cute little pre-packaged, pre-dosed UltraPacks will be hitting store shelves in February 2012 for you to try.  

They are simple to use - with dry hands (as to not dissolve the plastic-ey film that encases the detergent), toss one pack into the bottom of your washer, then add the clothes and wash as normal.  That's it!  

Here are the highlights: 
  • Convenient pre-dosed liquid detergent packs that make doing laundry easier than ever
  • All of the performance of the new Triple Action liquid formula in one powerful pack
  • No mess, no smells, no heavy jugs
  • Each UltraPack contain powerful 2x concentrated liquid detergent, giving double the cleaning power in ever drop
  • Dissolves quickly once the washer is started - even in cold water
  • Formulated and safe for all machines, including high-efficiency  machines

Purex UltraPacks come in two varieties, Mountain Breeze and Free & Clear (yes!):

The only possible downside that I could see to these is the fact that they are "one size fits all."  While I normally only do laundry when I have a full load to save water and energy, sometimes there is an emergency situation (like last night, when the Hubby came home with an ink stain on his white coat and I had just washed our whites the day before).  With only a third of a normal-sized load of laundry to wash, I wouldn't have wanted to waste an entire UltraPack that can handle the full load worth of detergent on a mini-load.  

But other than that?  These little dudes rock.  They'd be perfect for those times when husbands kids do laundry too!

Purex will be offering free samples for you to try in mid-February.  I will let you know when and how!

Happy Laundry ;)
