My Shoe Stink Secret + @Purex Fabric Softener Sheets Giveaway~ 8/3

Purex Fabric Softener Sheets
Momma Told Me: Life can get a little stinky.

Laundry and I have had a 'Love/Hate' relationship since I was old enough to stumble to the dryer door and roll in the pile of fresh, warm, towels. Somewhere around 4 Momma decided to switch our household detergent to a then new Tide variety for the appealing fragrance. Within days I began to develop nasty patches of hives and grew quite cranky. A week, and several loads, later, I was toted into the pediatrician's office for a myriad of allergy tests. All known allergens came back clear; the irritant had to be something found at home. Naturally the doctor asked Momma to explore and changes in routine or environment that had been made lately, and it was discovered that my skin was especially sensitive to the new detergent. From then on it was a series of Arm and Hammer cleansers, or expensive baby formula detergents.

I wish I could say that I've outgrown that sensitivity, but I sadly have not. In fact, just last year, we moved into our new condo, with a shared laundry facility, and I began breaking out in hives again. Our lower neighbors were not only leaving their wet laundry in the barrels to mildew for days, but placing 10-15 (trust me, I counted) dryer sheets in the dryer! Clearly, if they felt they needed that many dryer sheets (perhaps to outweigh the mildew smell?), they were not buying quality sheets to begin with! I was forced to begin taking my laundry back to my father's house once a week, simply to use a clean washer and dryer. Despite the step back on the adult-hood ladder, I was determined to continue exploring laundry products that would offer fragrance and effectiveness, without irritation. When I shortly there after became a Purex ambassador I was unsure as to whether I'd be able to actually use the products.
Mountain Breeze Purex
Well, as many of you know, I can, and do, use the Purex range of detergents and laundry care aids. Not only is my skin happy with their newer Baby Detergent and Crystals, gentle, collection, but their Naturals (green bottle) line is also safe for my sensitive skin. I have been breakout free for over a year, and even use the Dirt Lift Action Purex liquid detergent for stain fighting and diluted loads of heavier soiled fabrics. The value is immense, and I love that I can find all of the Purex products at my local Super Walmart Center, while stocking up on back to school clothing and other grocery needs. So, when Purex recently announced the addition of Fabric Softener Sheets to their lineup I was intrigued to have a potential dryer sheet my skin could tolerate.

Currently manufactured in two 3x concentrated fragrances; Mountain Breeze and Sweet Lavender, Purex Fabric Softener Sheets claim to reduce static cling and repel pet hair and lint (which we have plenty of in our home). I know the debate whether to soften towels or not is a personal preference; but I prefer to have my towels, and bedding, treated with Fabric Softener Sheets. Using 1 per load, I discovered that the sheen, non-greasy, Purex sheets are in fact loaded with plenty of fragrance to keep my laundry fresh up to a week after washing. I was happy to find my towels also had no detectible residue, and seemed to absorb water from skin just as effective as ever.
Purex Fabric Softener Sheets to keep shoes fresh
While I am a low fragrance kinda laundry gal, the intense aroma of the Mountain Breeze Purex dryer sheets I received not only keep my laundry smelling great, but are excellent for masking odors elsewhere as well. I can tuck a single sheet, even after running through a load in the dryer, in my shoes, hamper, drawers, or garbage cans to keep dark and musky odors at bay. It's great to know I can extend the value of my Purex fabric softener sheets with these extra little uses- since I don't use them in every laundry load. Not only do my fabrics stay smelling laundry day fresh, but I can enjoy that comforting aroma throughout my house as well.

What Daughter Says: Discover new uses for dryer sheets and keep your laundry smelling fresh with less waste, thanks to Purex.
