Purex Plus Oxi (review + giveaway!)


Purex (which you might know as my favorite frugal-yet-incredibly-effective laundry soap) has a great new liquid detergent available: Purex plus Oxi.  This is Purex's most powerful detergent, with the ability to work against 101 different stains.  That's a lot of stains!

This new formula is hypoallergenic and works well on heavily soiled loads and everyday laundry alike.  Also, like all other Purex products, Purex plus Oxi has been specially formulated to work in both high efficiency washers and traditional washing machines.  But my favorite part?  Purex plus Oxi can be used as a pretreater for stains!  Simply pour a little Purex plus Oxi onto the stain, rub the fabric together and let sit for five minutes before washing.  I tried this on a salsa stain on light colored pants, and the stain had disappeared prior to even throwing the pants into the wash!

My only (ever-so-minor) complaint is that this product is only available in "Fresh Morning Burst" scent, and we prefer to use scent-free detergents in our home.  Aside from that, I cannot find another negative thing about this product!  


Now for the fun part - Purex has supplied me with several coupons for you, my favorite readers, to try a bottle of Purex plus Oxi for free!  To enter to win one of the coupons, leave a comment below stating what your least favorite type of stain to remove is.  This giveaway is open to folks in the United States until Thursday, November 29, and if you've won, I'll contact you then to snail-mail you your coupon! 

If you are a no-reply commenter, please leave your email address [mdschoolmrs(at)gmail(dot)com] in your comment, or I will have no way of contacting you if you've won! 

Purex provided me with a sample of Purex plus Oxi so I could write this review.  However, all opinions expressd here are my own.



This giveaway is now closed and the comments are turned off.  I'll be contacting the winners to mail out their coupons.  Thanks for entering!

You never know what you'll find on your counter...

You never know what you'll find on your counter when your husband is a med student.  You've been forewarned!  


Doesn't everyone have a cast freshly removed from their husband's non-broken arm just laying around?  ;)
