Ever wash a load of laundry, smell it once its done only to find that it does not smell fresh? Somedays you forget to take the laundry out of the washer right after the cycle is done, leaving a mildew smell in your clothes. Sometimes the laundry detergent and water cannot eliminate odors by itself. I know this first hand because over the past two years I have potty trained two toddlers.
Potty training comes with both good, accident-free days and days where the potty trainee goes through five pairs of underwear and pants and needs new clean sheets for their bed. Some days when one of my little ones has an accident I cannot wash the soiled laundry right away, which causes the clothes to have odors that are sometimes challenging to get rid of in one load cycle. Because of the lingering odor, I would have to wash a load more than once, which means more water use, more detergent needed, and more time than desired being spent doing laundry.Washing clothes daily can be stressful and time-consuming. No one wants to do that and many of us are way too busy to do such a thing.
I recently tried the new Purex® Crystals ScentSplash™, which is a liquid fabric fragrance booster. Purex also offers the Solid Crystals, but the liquid will boost the fragrance of your clothes by 35% more loads than the Crystals. The Fresh Spring Water scent lives up to its name and leaves an irresistable freshness in the laundry room and on the clothes that lasts. I loved just standing in the laundry room smelling it while it was in the bottle. During my first use of the ScentSplash I started the washing machine, added my normal laundry detergent, added the Purex Crystals ScentSplash and then the soiled clothes. I started the load in the morning around 10:00am before heading out for the day. I had a day of meetings, so I was not able to get the laundry into the dryer until 6:00pm that evening. I was afraid that the laundry would not smell as fresh and would have a risk of smelling like mildew from sitting so long in the washer.
Once my load was dry and out of the dryer I was finally able to smell the laundry to see if the ScentSplash did what I was hoping it did. To my surprise, the laundry smelled nice, fresh, and free of that awful mildew smell. That load of laundry sat for two days in basket. I went to fold it (two days later) and found that it still had the smell of fresh laundry. As you can tell, I do not love folding laundry and often procrastinate getting it done. The Purex Crystals ScentSplash is perfect for me and my procrastinating tendencies. Washing my little ones’ clothes will no longer take a couple washes. I can now have fresh smelling laundry every wash.
