Purex With Crystals Detergent Plus Fabric Softener Review
I received a free bottle of Purex with Crystals detergent plus fabric softener, in the fresh spring waters scent, from the company as part of my role as a Purex Insider.
This detergent is following the trend of many other brands currently on the market which are trying to make it easier for you to add fabric softener to your wash by adding it directly to the detergent itself.
Because of the way traditional oil-based softeners work this is often difficult to do, because technically such softeners should be added during the rinse cycle, not at the same time you add the detergent.
However, as explained in more detail in my article about Purex Crystals softener this type of softener that is in the crystals is different and it can and should be added at the same time as your laundry soap, meaning that adding the crystals directly to the detergent can be a perfect match.
Most of you know, if you've followed many of my reviews, that I normally only use hypoallergenic and scent free detergents, but I thought I would make an exception in this case, hoping I would be able to use it. Unfortunately, my allergies (and those of a family member) made it impossible for me to test this product as thoroughly as I would have liked.
I just can't do strong scents in my wash, I've now re-confirmed.
However, if you do like a bright scent, and often forget to add fabric softener to your load this detergent may be one you want to look into since it is an all-in-one type product.
Since I couldn't really use this product I am hoping to get some reviews of it from other readers. If you've used this, or any other Purex product you can share your review here, and I'll add it to the site.
The Purex brand provided me with a sample of this detergent in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.
Allergic Reaction From Purex With Crystals: I'll Never Use It Again

I have never had any reaction from any laundry soaps before, but I guess there's always a first time.
I loved the smell of this detergent so I decided to try it. I washed my beding and clothing with it.. BIG MISTAKE!
I've been breaking out with random itchy rashes on my arms and legs and the eczema on my hands has had a massive flare up since using this product.
I've been living on Benadryl all week!
I don't know what's in this stuff but from seeing how many people are allergic to it, I would love to see it taken off shelves!
I've been in agony all week because of this!
Sorry to hear you had an allergic reaction to this product.
I'm not really that surprised though, when I just opened the bottle (see my review above) I noticed the very strong scent right away. I know some people like that strong smell, but it just makes me itch.
