I must say I love the idea of this- no waiting (and remembering) to add the liquid softener later on in the rinse cycle and no dryer sheet to wind up stuck to someone's outfit later in the day (it does happen). The new Purex Crystals are super easy, you add it in right at the beginning of the wash load. It's safe for all fabrics and can be used in HE washing machines as well.
It super easy to use, smells great, leaves clothes super soft... and it's 92% natural! I did get a little bit of static cling with my loads while using it, but that happens even when I use a dryer sheet sometimes. I think the humidity in our house is way off also. And in keeping with natural you can always add a tiny bit of vinegar to the wash and it'll help with that.
You could also use the crystals as garbage pail fresheners (just sprinkle in the bottom) or in a small dish for in your car. It's now available in stores in 3 scents- Fresh Spring Waters, Lavender Blossom, and Tropical Splash. It'll retail from $3.99- $5.99 depending on the store you purchase it from.
