Purex Complete 3 in 1 Laundry Sheet Review

I'm all about convenience, because as many of you know, my organizational skills as a business woman somehow managed to escape when I made the transition to becoming a SAHM 10 years ago. I thought maybe they were taking a short vacation. But they have been slow to return. So when I find a product that makes my life easier, I LOVE to talk about it! And just so you know, I always give HONEST reviews. I will not say a product is great if it doesn't work. Having said that, I have lots of products to review this week!

Purex Complete 3 in 1 Laundry Sheets are the newest thing to hit the laundry detergent market. The sheets contain detergent, fabric softener and anti-static all in one easy-to-use little cloth like sheet. The detergent is released during the wash cycle and the softener and anti-static are released in the warm dryer. Seriously? This product just might catch on!

When I received a pack of Purex Complete 3 in 1 Laundry Sheets last week, I was a bit skeptical about how well 1 sheet would clean my clothes. I have two boys and a husband who sweat hard and who roll around in the dirt all day. I demand a lot from my laundry detergent. One little sheet? I shook my head and threw it in one of my stinkiestt, dirtiest loads. I had my doubts, but remained hopeful, because if this stuff works? My WHOLE laundry routine just got a LOT easier!

An hour later, as I pulled clothes out of the washer and transferred them to the dryer I checked a few to see how they looked. They looked and smelled clean. We have really hard water where we live so fabric softener is a must and I am horrible at remembering to add it to the wash, so I was anxious to see how the clothes came out of the dryer. I am pleased to report that the sheets do exactly what Purex says they will do. My clothes came out of the dryer clean and soft and lightly scented.

Now, I still have to use a stain treatment on many items of clothing, which I do with any detergent I use, so know going in that Purex does not claim that these sheets will eliminate tough stains without pre-treatment of some kind.Also, the directions do state that you should use 2 sheets for really large loads.

All in all, I was really pleased with the sheets and am excited about the prospect of not lugging home big bottles or boxes of detergent every few weeks. Purex Complete 3 in 1 Laundry Sheets come 21 to a pack and run about $6.99 in the retail stores where I've seen them. Packages are available in three scents - Spring Oasis, Tropical Escape, and Pure & Clean. The laundry sheets are compatible with both front or top loading washers and are HE compatible. Considering that one pack of these sheets eliminates the need to purchase fabric softener and dryer sheets, it is really cost effective! I am excited to think that I have just streamlined one of my least favorite tasks.

Thanks Purex for your innovative addition to the laundry world, you have just made a lot of moms really happy and left us with a few more minutes on our hands...that's not an easy thing to do!
