The more research I've done into the issue though, the more I think (but cannot be completely certain) that this sounds like a fabric softener stain. These types of stains can occur either from liquid fabric softener, which is contained within the sheet itself, and would potentially spot on the clothes while in the wash, or from dryer sheets, which can cause such a stain from the dryer.
If the greasy or oily spots and stains are coming from the sheets, fortunately it is easy to fix the problem. Follow the instructions I've provided for fixing a fabric softener stain.
However, I can understand why you would not want to use the sheets anymore, because you do not want to go through that stain removal process every single time you wash items.
In addition, you can share your own Purex laundry detergent review here, or read other reviews already submitted for many of their different products. I'm especially interested in if anyone else has experienced this spotting problem with these sheets, and how you fixed the problem, if you could.

I Am Getting Grease Stains Now Too From The Purex Sheets
Karen shared her experience with this product.
I thought I was very happy with this product but I now notice it looks like I have grease stains on all of our clothing.
I will not buy this product anymore. Hopefully some of the stain removing advice you've provided on this site will help remove these stains. I am on dissatisfied customer.
Thanks Karen for sharing your experience with this product. I would love it if you wrote back to share if my advice does work, to help me make sure I'm giving the best advice to fix these fabric softener stains.
I was a single father for many years of 1 boy and 1 girl. I used Purex liquid all these years.
Now that I am just single and my lil nest is empty I have been using these 3 in 1 sheets for about 3 years?, ever since they came out on the shelves.
I loved them too, until about 4-6 months ago.
I'm sure we will find that this is when they tried to improve something that was already working without staining our clothes.
It is soooo aggravating to check each item for stains, spray the stains and wash my clothes just to find this greasy furry stain all over several items per wash.
I have tried cleaning my machine, rearranging my clothes and where I put the sheet inside the machine to now simply giving up.
I have a theory since I hate to throw anything away that I have used my hard earned money on to purchase.
I'm going to cut the next sheet I load into my washer into many pieces. I feel like these newer sheets are sticking to items during the wash cycle and making the stains.
These sheets DID NOT do this in the past, only as of about 6 months now.
I have ruined several shirts and now I rewash them before drying them without any extra detergent and they seem to go away, but I shouldn't have to wash my clothes twice.
Being a Man one would think I don't know much about washing clothes, well I do know a lot about washing clothes and I take pride in having cleaned clothes. They smell and feel just like moms did and she taught me how to wash my own clothes when I was in college.
I missed the part about stains coming from the wash though, so it makes you think there is another problem at hand until you have damaged more clothes.
Purex should be responsible for this. It doesn't take a washing scientist to figure it out once the cats out of the bag.
Elizabeth has a different opinion of these Purex sheets than many of the other reviewers who've written into me.
I LOVE the 3 in 1 Purex laundry sheets...
My problem is 2 of the grocery stores that were carrying them are not getting them back in!! (Safeway and Thrifty's)
Is this product coming off the market?? I HOPE NOT!
I love the washing sheets because of convenience but also they are environmentally friendly in the amount of packaging they use as compared to laundry soap and softener bottles and boxes. LOVE IT!!
Thanks Elizabeth for sharing your opinion of this product.
I am wondering, have you ever had an issue with the sheets staining your clothing, like several of these other reviewers have.
I wonder if there is a certain way to use them which works better, and is less likely to cause stains? If anyone has any tips about this, I would love for you to share them with me.
I haven't personally heard anything about Purex taking these sheets off the market, and the last I checked they were still featured on their website. Is anyone else having any trouble finding them in their store now? If so, please tell me about it.
***Update: I got a comment from another reader saying this:
I, too, have recently been having trouble finding them in stores - including Wal Mart.
I checked, and they are still available on Walmart's website(at least as of the time of this writing), including available to purchase online there. In addition, they are available online from several other places too (including the links below).
