Guide Review - Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets - Laundry Guide Review

It seems almost too easy. Drop in one sheet into the washer and forget about adding fabric softener and a dryer sheet. But Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets actually work that way. Each sheet contains a super-concentrated detergent, softener and anti-static product.

Formulated to use in either top load or front load washers, the sheets have a large blue area that is the detergent that is released during the wash cycle. There is also a green stripe that is heat activated by the dryer to soften clothes and remove static. Just keep the sheet with your laundry load.

If using the sheets in a front-loading washer, place the sheet in a washable mesh bags. The sheets can slip between the inner wash drum and the outer drum causing blockages and preventing the washer from draining properly.

I found them to work well at removing general laundry grime. Stains still need to be spot treated as usual. The clothes came out smelling clean and static free. (I tried Spring Oasis - also available in Tropical Escape and Pure & Clean.)

As with any fabric softener or dryer sheet, the product is not recommended for use on children's sleepwear or other flame resistant fabrics because it reduces fire resistance. And, as with other dryer sheets, the product may cause spotting on your laundry.

The product starter dispenser retails for $5.99 to $7.49 for 20 loads or a refill pack of 24 sheets. Compared to the cost of three different products, the cost per load is quite reasonable.

For someone who has limited storage space or must travel to a laundry room or laundry mat, this is a great idea.
