Review: Purex 3-in-1 Sheets

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Purex. All opinions are 100% mine.

Life with two small kids is full of many certainties- love, fun, toys, diapers, and laundry! I do one load of laundry every day, some days even more than that. So I've always loved the Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheet TV commercial that shows a mom surrounded by piles of laundry- and I always laugh at the end when she begs someone to help her with folding all the little baby onesies. I can so relate!  Despite my love of the TV commercial, I hadn't yet had the chance to try out the 3-in-1 sheet for myself, so I was really excited about this review opportunity. The Purex 3-in-1 sheet are a small laundry sheet that contains an entire loads worth of detergent, fabric softener and anti-static all in one. The detergent is released in the wash cycle, then the heat in the dryer releases the fabric softener and anti-static during the drying cycle.

The 3-in-1 sheets were as easy to use as promised. Since I have a top-loading washer, I just turned on the water, let a bit run into the washer, added the sheet and threw in the clothes and that was it. When the washer was done, I moved the whole load, with the sheet into the dryer.  My clothes came out looking clean and smelling fresh. I was excited to see that the 3-in-1 sheets also come in Pure and Clean, which is 100% hypoallergenic. My daughter has really severe eczema, so I have to be very careful what comes in contact with her skin. So these will be perfect for us!

The best thing about these 3-in-1 sheets, other than the convenience of not having to measure detergent or remember to add the dryer sheets at the end, is that the sheets are so small! I live in a condo in the city, and my laundry area is a tiny closet in the corner of my living room, just a couple of feet wide. There's nowhere to keep detergent or dryer sheets or all the other stuff for laundry, so I'm always having to shuffle things around, or have things falling over to the side of the machine and spilling.  These sheets replace a bunch of the stuff cluttering up my laundry area, and they are lightweight and easy to store. Love it!

And, if you're like me and sometimes have to do an emergency load of laundry that isn't quite full-sized, you can cut a sheet in half and use that! If you want to try the 3-in-1 sheets for yourself (trust me, you do!) visit the Purex blog to request a free sample!
