Laundry Woo's - Purex makes it easier!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Purex. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have three teens, two toddlers and two kids in elementary school. There are two adults in the mix and one of them is a pitcher for a local baseball club.

Do you see anything that could go wrong here? Dinner times are full of “I don’t like that” or “Can I have seconds?”. Playtime sounds like a seaside boardwalk full of seagulls “Mine, Mine, Mine”

Then… there is this pile that starts off the week fairly small… non-invasive, and then…. The teens room looks like this.

Yea… scary right? Thankfully they HAVE to clean up every Sunday, other than that... I leave them alone, as long as their door is closed, and no one is dead under the pile of gunk.

Our laundry room is downstairs in the basement, a large Cabrio washer and dryer is the only way we stay sane because they have a larger capacity, which cuts down on the number of loads we have to do.

Imagine this… 11+ loads of laundry a week.

That is if we aren’t doing sheets, and tons of blankets that got used during sleep overs.

Now… between laundry detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets… that is a MESS of a laundry room, because the teens have to do their own laundry.

Soap gets EVERYwhere, dryer sheets end up all over the floor and fabric softener manages to have a cap missing or isn’t used at all.

Then I saw the Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheet and I was so excited. This opens a whole new opportunity with the kids and my sanity. I knew I had to try it to see if:

#1: They would stand up to the super sized loads we do in this house

#2: If the kids would use them with ease (they can be cut in half for smaller loads)

#3: How do things smell afterward?

I used one earlier in the week to get some of the toddlers blankets clean, it worked very well, just toss in, throw in the laundry and you are on your way. No measuring, no mess. Awesome!

Then Dave used them last night on a few loads we were working on. The laundry seemed very clean, came out smelling alright, and it survived the large loads of clothing that were being done.

We have an overhang at the dryer area, I really don’t like this thing, it seems a little low and it’s hard to see the product atop it. With these sheets, I don’t need to see anything, I could use these, have a small shelf with bleach and our costs are cut in ½ and using a simple sheet instead of messy products.

So, don’t JUST wanna take my word for it? That’s alright; you can go to the Try Purex blog and get a free sample See what you think, I am pretty sure you’ll love it JUST as much, imagine a world without the mess. A pipe dream maybe, but we need all the help we can get!

Easy video for the sheets!

I was wondering if these really worked. Hmmmm. Streamlining is always good. I think I will get a sample.
