What happens when you do laundry almost every day? I do believe you become a laundry master and you learn your way around a few products. I have become distinctly attached to great smelling laundry, and with little boys who do their best to bring their stank on each day, I challenge all my detergents, and scent-makers to turn that stank to tolerable with very little effort. Sinking into a comfy bed at night is awesome, but a lingering, fresh-smelling scent is even better, here’s how I lavishly live laundry out loud, and my general comparison of Purex Crystals vs. Downy Unstopables.
Downy Unstopables versus Purex Crystals
I am always searching for the new BEST smell and one that stays with the fresh laundry , and guess what, we have a Winner. If you want good smelling clothes, that stay that way for days after the laundry is done, this bottle is the Lightening you have been looking for. Purex Crystals.
Purex Crystals are so much easier to have dissolved in the laundry, they don’t come out on your clothes and they leave the laundry feeling fresh. I use them in both cold or warm and they dissolve equally, leaving nothing behind but fresh scents. If you have used the Downy Unstopables you might know that often the pellets don’t dissolve cold water and then stick to clothing, this is always fun. Other times if you have animals in the house and you are transferring from washer to dryer, you need to worry that they don’t eat the pellets that have stuck to clothing and fall off before you get to vaccum it up. Overall, if the pellets do dissolve you will have good smelling laundry, but they are not nearly as fragrant as the Purex Crystals.
Tip for using Purex Crystals
My boys play hockey and any one with any kind of sports clothing knows these clothes smell bad and there seems to be no cure. A small ladies knee high, cut and tied with some of these crystals in them are great in each skate, and in the bag the scent is great in the bag!
Other Tips and Tricks with Purex Crystals
Have a vacuum canister, but nothing to put in it? A few of these in the canister will make pushing the vacuum a pleasant change as it will smell like like flowers or fresh water and it will keep your room smelling great! The crystals have a great staying power, so the smell stays. These are just different ways I have found to use them, I am sure there are more.
Enjoy and be fresh. As you lavishly live freshly with great scents from Purex Crystals.
While Downy Unstopables smell great, they are just laundry scent boosters, they are not fabric softener. Downy UNSTOPABLES suggests this scent booster along with your downy fabric softener. What this means to Downy, is Money Money Money. You buy the Downy and the Downy Unstopables. I thought Downy was supposed to smell great on your wash without needing anything else, hence their price on the fabric softener?
What will your decision be? I know the less steps in laundering the better in my house, so detergent and Purex Crystals win. The crystals are the softener, they smell great and the smell stays. I am not going to be adding a third step to my laundry tossing procedure nor do I want to add more cost. While the Downy Unstopables may look similar in packaging and idea, they are not, so do not be fooled by purchasing them to act as a fabric softener, because that … they are not. If you are just looking for a great scent booster, that… it is..
The best scent comes from Purex, and the best dissolve comes from Purex. IF you are a die-hard Downy fan, it will be hard to convince you other than welcoming you to purchase your own Purex Crystals and your own Downy Unstopable and performing your own at-home test.
This is my own personal comparison, done at my home, your trials may differ.
