Purex Complete with Zout Triple Enzyme Stain Remover Review

As a Purex Insider, I got the opportunity to review their newest product, Purex Complete with Zout Triple Enzyme Stain Remover!

This product combines the perfomrance of Purex detergent with the triple enzyme stain fighting power of Zout stain remover! It has three powerful stain fighting enzymes...Protease, Amylase and Mannanase. These enzymes work against blood, grasss, chocolate, tomato sauce, guar, etc. POWERFUL stuff! It can be used as a pre-treater and/or a detergent....for normal wash loads, and really tough stains. It comes in two fragrances, Fresh Morning Burst (this is the one that was sent to me and that I sampled), and Free and Clear.

This product costs far less than the leading brand of liquid detergent. It is priced from $3.49 to 7.99 depending on the size and the retailer. It is at select retailers now, but by the end of March it will be availabe nationwide in stores like Walmart, Target, Kroger and Publix.

If you go to you can prove it to yourself and receive a free sample of the Purex Complete with Zout.

I have to say...I have been using this product all month and I am FULLY pleased with it. The smell...the ability...the is all very pleasing to me!! And I can be pretty picky! I have children who are in need of very mild detergents due to their skin problems. So far, I have had no trouble with this product and their skin, which tells me it is also mild enough to not effect them, but strong enough to clean my clothes AND get rid of stains! HALLELUJAH!!

Purex Complete Crystals Softener Review

Purex has outdone themselves this time!!! They sent me a full size sample of their new Crystals softener. It came out in December in Walmart, and continued into other retailers in January. I have to say...they have hooked me. That's right...hook, line and sink HER! Not only does this stuff smell great, but it makes my clothes nice and soft and fluffy with just a faint fragrance. It's not a liquid or a is in crystal form and you add it right to your clothes in the washing machine before even starting the machine. Interested in more info? GO HERE

I will share a few facts with you as well.

Most fabric softeners are oil based....over time this oily residue builds up on your clothes which allows dirt and other things to stick to your fabrics. This DECREASES that lifespan of your clothes! Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are 92% natural, not oil based and they work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness that lasts for weeks, not just days.

Remember that oily residue that other softeners can leave? It makes towels' absorbancy decrease...not good when you are showering or cleaning the dishes. Purex Complete Crystals Softeners will ENSURE your towels stay fresh AND absorbent.

You know how your kids' sleepwear is supposed to be flame-retardant? That can be impaired when coated with oily residue left by most liquid fabric softeners. YIKES! Purex Complete Crystals Softeners is 100% SAFE to use on childrens' sleepwear as it DOES NOT impair these flame retardant qualities.

You know when you work out...and you wear work out clothes that are supposed to draw perspiration and moisture away from your body? Well...that oily residue left by fabric softeners can reduce the effectiveness of those fabrics preventing them from drawing sweat away from your body during a workout. Purex Compolete Crstals Softener does NOT inhibit these fabrics!

AND it has a great smell!! I would REALLY encourage you to try these out!

Ragú® Mom's the Word on Dinner

"I don't feel like eating dinner now!", "I want ice cream!" For most Moms, these are all too familiar-- and all too frequent -- demands heard by kids everywhere around 5:30 pm. Yes, as Moms we face a set of dinnertime challenges nearly every night- challenges that only another mom can understand. That's why Ragú® is launching "Mom's the Word on Dinner," an online community for moms to laugh, learn and share their take on what really happens at dinnertime.

Ragú® is teaming up with some familiar faces, including some of the fabulous ladies of Momversation™, to bring moms together to share stories and tips, celebrate the small wins and laugh about situations that only other moms can relate to. Each month, this online community will be tackling topics from how to deal with picky eaters, to getting them to eat their veggies to what's being discussed at the dinner table, with some tips from parenting expert and author, Dr. Michele Borba, and Registered Dietician, Dr. Felicia Stoler.

In addition to the ongoing fun and conversation, the Mom's the Word on Dinner community will feature videos, photos, polls, quizzes and dinner ideas with quick and easy recipes. With two full servings of veggies in every half cup of Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional pasta sauce, Ragú® provides nutritious meal options for parents to help them on their mission to feed their kids well. This wouldn't be a true community without interaction and Ragú® wants to hear what happens at dinnertime in kitchens and homes across the country!
