Review and giveaway: Purex plus Oxi

As a mother of 5, I have seen my fair share of laundry stains. Often, I have ended up taken the stained item and dyeing it some dark color so that we can still use it, but the stain is no longer an issue. However, that means we no longer have the white shirt/khaki pants/etc and they still need to be replaced. I would much prefer to have fewer dyed dark clothes because we are not permanently staining and dying our light clothing. I was happy to put Purex's new Purex plus Oxi (and Zout stain removers) to the test.

Purex plus Oxi is the most powerful Purex detergent available, working against 101 different stains.  I have used various Oxi type products in the past and have been happy with the results, so I am not surprised to see this as part of why this is so powerful.  Like, all liquid Purex products, this is safe for HE machines, as well as traditional machines.  It is also a great bargain, as I find Purex to be one of the lower cost detergents, yet it works great. 

When I received this detergent, I was in the middle of a contact dermatitis attack due to a new fabric softener (not Purex) we had tried.  I was very hesitant to try a new detergent due to the rash I was dealing with, but then I learned it is a hypoallergenic formula so I went ahead and used it.  My rash continued to get better, so there was no reaction for me to the Purex plus Oxi.  I did notice my whites are brighter and fewer stains survived the wash when I used the Purex.  I did not pretreat any of the clothes, but you can use this detergent as a pretreater.  Just pour some on the stain, rub the fabric together and let it sit for 5 minutes before putting it in the water.  Then add more of the detergent to the wash load as you normally would.

To kick off their new product, Purex is giving away $6,000 in prizes.  Just visit their giveaway website to enter.
