They also dissolved well, although I will tell you that I always started by wash with hot water, threw in the pack, let it dissolve thoroughly, and then turned the water temperature down to warm if I did not wish to wash those particular clothes in hot.
Doing it in this fashion meant running about 30 seconds of hot water, which is well worth it in my opinion to make sure the detergent pac actually dissolves properly.
Supposedly they should dissolve even with cooler water temperatures, but I just didn't want to take a chance.
As with all of these single use, pre-measured pacs, they cost more for each load of detergent than just buying the liquid and measuring yourself. I am not sure the convenience was enough for me to pay the extra price personally, although I could see how some people would think it was worth the extra cost.
I did not have any trouble with these packs bursting, nor sticking together.
Although I am a Purex Insider I purchased this product myself for testing.
It was very difficult for me to find this product in the free and clear scent in a store. I always saw them available in the scented Mountain Breeze scent (the blue colored version), but I finally found the scent free version at Kroger, I believe.
I would love to hear from even more people who have used this product, telling me what you thought of it, either positive or negative. You can share your Purex detergent reviews here, or read others that have already been submitted.
I noticed after washing and drying a set of sheets that the pack had adhered to the sheet. Apparently it had not dissolved completely. I had used warm water also.
Fortunately, after soaking in the sink and rewashing the sheets the stain and residue was gone.
Sorry you had trouble with these laundry detergent pacs Lisa.
As I explained in my review above, I did not have an issue with this, but I also used hot water to dissolve the pac completely before adding any clothing into the machine.
I know that can be a more drawn out process, but so is soaking and rewashing clothing because the packet has not dissolved completely.
I guess we all just have to decide if this issue is worth the convenience of the single use packs or not.
I would love to hear from more people who've used this product sharing your experiences and opinions of it, and also whether you've had any trouble with them dissolving like Lisa did.
