Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets Review and GIVEAWAY!

I just have to say I have so much fun getting to try every Purex product under the sun and then getting to share my experiences with you. We even got the high school grads we got invites from a honkin HUGE bottle of Purex this weekend at Target. I think they have enough for 133 loads- Kjell's like that's a whole year for college kids! Anyways back to this dryer sheet- as soon as I opened the box my whole kitchen and living room took on this scent. It was EXTREMELY powerful. In the promo Purex says they can keep our whole house smelling fresh and they were not kidding! Kjell was complaining of a stinky room at school and I told him he might just want to take one of these sheets. Ok so since it did smell up the house so much I was a teeeny bit worried that the smell was going to be that strong on the clothes. Now everyone who knows me knows I LOVE scent in my laundry products but this was a bit too flower-y for Kjell's taste so when I did my first load I was pleasantly surprised that it was a more gentle smell then I had thought.  So once again there are two giveaways one that I am doing that is for a free product coupon- the other is the one that Purex does and they are giving away $500 I tell you what one of these days one of my bloggers is going to win this...
I will have three awesome ways for you to enter but only the first one is required. Thanks for entering and reading and know that Purex provided me with a sample of this product in exchange for my product review. However all opinions here are MINE :)

Purex No Sort for Colors Review and Giveaway

Justus has two major jobs at our house. Cleaning his own room and helping me sort laundry every Thursday or Friday. Yes I am that mom who still with a family of six washes all the clothes on the same day. The morning we were to do laundry I told Justus how we weren't going to have to sort the clothes this week, then I handed him the bottle. Words like AMAZING and WOW THIS IS MAGIC came out of his mouth! He also said, "mom, Purex should have sent you two bottles!" Let me tell you I will not get away with buying anything else as long as this kid is helping me with the laundry! The bottle tells us that the detergent can trap loose dyes and reduces dye bleeding chances not allowing them to settle onto other clothing items.. It DOES however state it is in fact not magic (sorry Justus) and new "strongly" colored clothes or jeans should be washed at least five times with like items before you can trust that it wont cause bleeding. 

I enjoyed the product a lot. I actually threw in each kid's basket as a load and then had that kid's stuff all done so hypothetically I could just wash, dry and fold it all and get it put in their room before the next load. However with four kids most moms know that just doesn't usually happen that way. So yes I got all the laundry washed before lunch. Which is good I usually have the last load out by 2. It really seemed to save me a lot of clothes. My only issue which isn't really a big deal is- I don't know if I have/had any clothes in there that could have transferred dye or not. We are super frugal when it comes to clothes so most are either old, garage sale finds or hand me downs!  However I really did feel I gained an extra hour of my life that day and that is well worth it. I am so type A though I am not sure how much I enjoy just tossing it in. (yes I know I am weird) 

Anyways I would like to share this product with you in the form of three free product coupons so don't forget to enter my giveaway- Rafflecopter has seemed to work great as long as I remember to actually put the question in so I will try that again if it doesn't work please don't hesitate to contact me like last time! 

ALSO Purex has their giveaway you can enter at their website they are giving away $1000 and a year's supply of this detergent! One of these days it will be my reader who wins! GOOD LUCK!

Viva Vantage paper towels

Thanks to Crowdtap I got to try a roll of Viva Vantage paper towels. They have a new texture to give them more scrubbing power! I really enjoyed them and was impressed how well they worked on some of my toughest jobs. I tested them against a store brand with a table spoon of water on the table and then mopped it up just like the commercials! I could really tell the difference as soon as I picked up the store brand one it felt heavier and it ripped. The Viva roll didn't seem as heavy- the water was completely sopped up and then it took me pulling for a long time to get it to pull apart. I will be buying them again.

I was offered a free roll of Viva for my opinion on the product from Crowdtap, all the words written here are my own.
