NEW Purex Complete Crystals Softener {Review & Giveaway}

I'm so excited to be part of the Purex Insiders, allowing me to get the inside scoop and sneak peek at Purex products.  I've been a Purex Laundry Detergent user for many years and love it- works great and affordable.  And now I was able to test the new Purex Complete Crystals Softener before it came out in the stores.
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.
WIN IT:  3 lucky readers are going to win a coupon for a FREE full-size bottle of their own to try

Right now, my family doesn't use any fabric softener, because we have been trying to cut costs where we can!

I use bounce dryer sheets or liquid gain. I like the liquid gain much better due to the smell and how long it lasts. But, due to financial reasons next time I purchase softner it is going to be the cheapest, which upsets me because I know I won't get the strength of the smell I get from gain and bounce.

Would love to try the purex. Do you know how much it is?

We are still looking for the perfect fabric softener - one that does not bother my daughters asthma BUT one that actually works too. Since these are 'natural crystals' maybe they will do the trick:)
