Purex Detergent Review - Even Gets Out Red Clay And Mud Stains

by Angela
(North Carolina)

Angela has provided this Purex detergent review, of the Mountain Breeze scent, which works great for her family of five.

Angela says:

I have three boys, ages 4 yrs, 3 yrs, and 19 mos. They are hard on their clothes and I like to not stress about them getting the clothes dirty while playing.


I use Ultra Purex Mountain Breeze (or whatever scent) I think it smells good. The scent does not stay with the clothes beyond the washer though.

When I dry the clothes, they don't have the same smell as air dried clothes.

We have had no allergic reactions to this detergent.

As far as stains go, we have red clay/mud here in this part of North Carolina and I have found if I put the muddied clothes in a cold water wash within the same day, the stain comes right out.

Taylor says:

Thanks Angela for your Purex detergent review. Wow, I'm impressed you can get out red clay so easily with Purex, since this can be a very difficult stain to remove.

Purex Caused An Allergic Reaction For Me

by SR101 Reader

This detergent cleaned my clothes very well.

However, I noticed my eyes were dry and itchy. A week later I developed hives on my face around my eyes. The hives went away and I'm left with dry, stingy, peeling skin where the hives were on my face. It's very uncomfortable.

No other detergent has ever done this to me. I went back to Tide Pods which seem to have even more scent/dyes, but they do not bother me at all.

Purex Natural Elements Detergent Caused Allergic Reaction

by Russella McDowell
(Tempe, AZ)

Russella says:

I bought this detergent because it was on sale.

I got itchy skin, a runny nose, and itchy eyes once I used it. I also started breaking out in a rash.

I changed to a baby laundry detergent and now experience no problems.

Taylor says:

Thanks for sharing this quick review with me.

I note that they advertise this as a hypoallergenic detergent but it does not come in unscented varieties, but only with scents. I don't personally consider that to be hypoallergenic, but I guess my definition and theirs is different.

I would love to hear from even more people who've used Purex Natural Elements detergents or other products from this line, such as their fabric softeners.

You can share your review here.

In addition, this is an eco-friendly detergent, and if you're interested in using one I've got a whole list of natural laundry detergent brands currently available, and reviews of them, where applicable that you should check out.

I like it
by: Karen

I have been using Purex for a while. My kids are a little older now so not too many stains to deal with. I like it.

Love this! Very low cost!
by: Amanda

I love Purex. It's only about $3 and lasts me for about 2 months with 4 people living with me. I went through a bunch of different brands before getting this one and I've loved it ever since, plus it works with my front loaders really well.

it's just ok
by: Anonymous

I was using Purex liquid. I would grab whatever scent was available. It was ok but not great on grease stains. My husband grabbed the Kirkland pods and there is no turning back for me. Sorry Purex, Kirkland pods does a much better job. Even better than Tide.



always only Purex because of allergies
by: Debbie

My family has always used Purex. My son has skin allergies so I'm careful of what I use on all of the family washables. That includes towels and sheets. When he went away to school he was all excited that he was using something else that smelled good. When the skin allergies came back he made sure to buy Purex for himself.

If you are allergic to Tide, Use Purex
by: Anonymous

My whole family has a huge allergy to something in Tide. If you are allergic to Tide I highly recommend trying it. Purex Mountain Breeze has worked wonders for me and my family. We no longer have hives or shortness of breath.

It's the best!

Purex can't be beat with regular laundry and very good price!

Great
by: Miss Tx

I only buy Purex, it gets my clothes clean and is reasonable price.

Oxi version gave me a rash
by: Anonymous

Just washed sheets and clothes with Purex Oxi 4 daye ago. Major itching and rash from shoulders to ankles. Sad to say I bought a new mattress thinking it was critters from the mattress. Very expensive situation. I never had this itching issue before. Needs to be a warning on the oxi products.
