Achieving Laundry Bliss with Purex Laundry Detergent

Achieving #LaundryBliss with Purex #shop #CollectiveBias

It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of doing laundry. There are many other ways I would prefer spending my time, but the fact is that I LIKE clean clothes – who doesn’t? There is something about a nice big basket of fresh laundry with that clean just-washed laundry detergent scent.

I guess I shouldn’t complain. At least we have a washer and dryer to use at home so that I can do the laundry right in the comfort of my own home. A few months ago our washing machine broke and that meant I had to take trips to the laundromat to get our laundry done. That was a big hassle! Sure, it was nice to be able to do several loads at once, but I went through a LOT of quarters and I was stuck in the laundromat while my clothes were washing and drying.

Since I wasn’t at home, I wasn’t able to do what I LIKE to do while the clothes are washing. During that time the clothes are actually in the machines and I’m not doing any work, that is my time to do something I enjoy, which is often playing with my pets! The cats love to get a little extra snuggling during that time, but it is my dog, Toby, who usually benefits.


When I run a load of wash, it usually takes around 40 to 50 minutes for the cycle to run. That is just the perfect amount of time for me to head out with Toby to take a walk. He LOVES that time together and so do I. The added benefit is that it’s healthy for both of us to get that extra walking time in too!

This week I headed to Target to check out all the varieties of Purex Laundry Detergent they have available. Did you know that you can actually order Purex Detergent and Purex Crystals online to pick up in store at Target? I didn’t order ahead this time, but will keep it in mind for the future. Today I grabbed the Purex with Dirt Lift Action because I wanted to smell the Mountain Breeze scent. I have been using Purex for a while now, so already had a few other types on hand. (I always stock up to make sure I don’t run out!) One of my favorites is the Purex No Sort because that means I can just throw all the laundry in together without having to take any time to sort it. That’s definitely another step toward laundry bliss!

One more crucial step to Laundry Bliss is that great scent that I first mentioned. I have been making my clothes extra “good-smelling” with Purex Crystals. You just toss the crystals into the washer with your clothing and the scent embeds itself right into the fibers for a nice, long-lasting scent. They even make our pet beds stay fresher after washing. Laundry Bliss, indeed!

    I am a Purex girl too. Never tried the crystals. Which scent do you like? 🙂

  4. I really hate folding laundry. Every now and then I get motivated to get laundry going but by the time it gets done, the motivation is gone.

  5. My least favorite part about doing laundry is putting the folded clothing away! At least with Purex everything is smelling wonderful! #client

  6. I love their detergent. It always has a great smell.

  7. You had my sold at no sort! lol I hate sorting clothes and usually just wash everything in cold so I don’t have to sort! I haven’t seen this in my local store, I will have to go look next time! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Did I read this correctly?! No color sorting?! I must get some of this.

  9. I don’t mind the washing and drying. But I hate the folding and putting away!

  10. My favorite part of doing the laundry is folding the clean-smelling clothes. I also like rolling socks. My least favorite bending over the hot dryer.

    With two little ones, I feel like our laundry doesn’t stop around here!

  12. Catherine S says:

    This sounds like a great brand of laundry soap. Next time I buy detergent I will try it out.

  13. The doggie pic is hilarious! My least favorite part is transfering it from the washer to the dryer…then to fold and sort. I rather a maid do it…lol!

  14. I love products that do double duty and make my life simpler. I use the No Sort Purex – so I don’t have to spend time sorting the laundry before doing the laundry!

  15. I use Purex a lot. It is a great price. I need to get some of those crystals!

  16. I don’t mind laundry. it’s gotten way easier since nothing holds wrinkles any more. It was the ironing back in the day that got to me. 😉 I like Purex, I want to try the crystals.

  17. Purex is my go to brand. I love how affordable it is, and those Crystals leave my clothes smelling fabulous until the next wash!

  18. I love Purex! Especially crystals. I use the lavender on everything, so amazing! Such. Great brand and very cost friendly!

  19. I have been a user of Purex for ages. It’s the only soap that doesn’t cause me to break out in hives. It’s affordable and still does the job.

  24. My least favorite part of laundry is the folding. I have several loads of laundry that need to be folded and put away right now (and I dread it.)

  25. Those crystals would help with our pet blankets, they can get stinky.

  26. My favorite part is washing, drying, folding. My worst part is putting away and matching socks. Ugh.

  27. Sorting laundry and folding are the worst parts in my opinion. Would love to try this brand if it eliminates colour sorting!

  28. We have been using Purex for years. The thing we love about it is the price and what a great job it does cleaning the clothes!

  29. While washing your clothes, it is always best to find something to do in your spare time. I should follow your lead and take my dog on a few extra walks as well. Thanks for sharing.
