Purex Complete with Zout {Review & Giveaway - 2 winners!}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Stacey and Jennifer!}

I've never had a problem with doing laundry, there's just something about putting the dirty clothes in and having them come out clean and fresh that is extremely satisfying. Along the same lines, I enjoy folding the just-laundered clothes as well and seeing them so nicely stacked in their piles for each family member.

But that's where it ends.

I've told my husband more than once that if we win the lottery and build our dream home, it's going to have a gigantic closet in which all of my clothes can stay laid out at all times, because putting things back into the drawers just makes me tired.

Hey, I never said I was logical, I just said I don't mind doing the actual laundry.

Fortunately, Purex has now made it even simpler for me to get our clothes washed quickly and easily... and without having to spend time scrubbing and pre-treating stains thanks to their Purex Complete with Zout.

The concept couldn't be better: by combining a detergent and a pretreater in one, it does the job of both and saves you the time and effort of having to do multiple tasks. Why aren't all of my products like that?

So how does it work? Purex Complete with Zout contains three powerful stain-fighting enzymes, each one targeting a different type of stain:
  • Protease: Works against protein based stains such as grass and blood.
  • Amylase: Works against starchy stains such as chocolate and tomato sauce.
  • Mannanase: Works against guar, which is used as a thickener in many foods, such as ice cream, barbecue sauce, and salad dressing, because it's super sticky. Unfortunately it really sticks to fabrics too, making stains very difficult to remove. That's why the mannanase enzyme is so important in Purex Complete with Zout.
We've been using this innovative detergent for a while now and it has been working great! As with a lot of kids, my girls are prone to stains and knowing that I can just toss their clothes in the washing machine and have them come out clean is a big relief, as well as a time-saver.

Available in two fragrances (Fresh Morning Burst or Free & Clear, which is fragrance-free and has a hypoallergenic formula for sensitive skin), Purex Complete with Zout works in both traditional and High Efficiency washers. Found nationwide in retailers such as Walmart, Target, Kroger, and Publix, this detergent is priced from $3.49 - $7.99 depending on the store and size bottle.

Want to give it a try before you buy it? Purex is inviting consumers to test out Purex Complete with Zout for themselves by visiting FreeSamplePurex.com and signing up to receive a free sample. I do love free!

Or, thanks to the generosity of Purex, two people will be able to test a full bottle of this unique detergent for themselves, because...

Two lucky people will win a coupon for a free bottle of
Purex Complete with Zout!
