Purex UltraPacks Review & giveaway - closed

And the winner is......... kayshem. Congratulations, you should have an email from me soon.

A few weeks ago I received a package of Mountain Breeze UltraPacks from Purex to test out. Living with a 3 year old and a grease monkey means that I have some serious stains on clothes when I do laundry. What living with these two dirty men means to me...I do not have time to spray and pre treat stains every time they get something on their clothes.

I have tried other brand of stain packs and have not been 100% satisfied. They work, but the cost of them adds up fast. When I opened my package of Purex UltraPacks I was a little surprised. They are little gel filled packets. If I knew that they would not break, I would have played with one for a while. They are soft and filled completely with liquid detergent for an added boost of stain fighting power.

The test come when I washed my first load of chocolate milk, mud covered, grass stained clothes from the 3 year old. In went the power pack, then the clothes on top, the regular laundry soap (in this case it was Purex Triple Action), and I bravely hit the start button.

About two hours later the clothes are washed and dried so I can see the results. I start looking..... The spots where the grass and mud hint of a previous stain. The clothes were clean! Purex UltraPacks has passed the 3 year old boy test! That is an amazing accomplishment in my world. Most of the time there is a small hint of a stain when I am done washing clothes.

After several loads, I am still impressed. The Purex UltraPacks are removing my most common stains. They are easy to use and do not require any pre-treating before starting a load of laundry! That is great for me, a mom, student, and full time employee. If I can save a few minutes everyday, I am a little happier.

The downside, these will not be available until February 2012. The upside, they are from Purex and will be more affordable than other brands on the market while maintaining efficiency. And for those of you that may be worried about perfumes or dyes, these will be available in a Free & Clear version!
