Giveaway! Purex Dryer Sheets Review and Giveaway

~I was sent this product for review.  All opinions are my own and no other compensation was given.~

I don't use dryer sheets for every load I do.  I don't use them with cloth diapers because they are a no-no and I don't usually use them with Eleanor's clothes, but I love how they make my towels smell and the subtle scent they leave on out clothes.

But I love Purex products and so when given the opportunity to try the new Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets I was on board with it.

Lavender Blossom


I didn't have to open the box these were shipped in to smell them.  Actually my first impression was that they were really strong and it turned me off a little.  Then I opened the shipping box to see that the dryer sheet box had come open and I'm sure that was the reason they had such a strong odor.



Once the laundry was dry I could still smell fragrance, but it was faint.  I might be strange, but I actually think I might use two because I kind of like that fresh smell and fragrances have never bothered me.  I'd only do this if I was just washing my clothes or towels because I'm not so sure Rob wants to go to work smelling like Lavender Blossoms.

I think that smell/scent issue aside they did what they are made to do.  My towels and shirts felt softer and I didn't have to peel them apart to fold and put them away.  I even stuffed some into my sheets when I put those away so the next time I make the bed the smell should be there and make crawling into a freshly made bed (which is one of the best feelings) so much more enjoyable.

GIVEAWAY TIME:
I have two coupons to giveaway to try these new dryer sheets. I'm going to make this one easy and all you have to do is leave me a comment (and your email address) answering the following question.  What is your favorite non traditional way to use dryer sheets?  For example, I've used them along the baseboards to repel dust. 

Giveaway will end at 11:59 pm on 5/8/14 and is open to US only.  Winners will have 48 hours to respons.

  16. I buy a lot of old books and sometimes they smell kinda funky. So I put them in a box with some dryer sheets and seal the box up for a couple months. When I open the box the books smell much better.

  26. Some of my favorite non traditional way to use dryer sheets are to freshen up the diaper bag, hubby uses them to clean his paint brushes, as an alternative to Swiffer Mop's sheet, dust the TV screens, and I always keep extras store in all my luggage. Thank-you for a great #giveaway!

  33. My favorite nontraditional way to use dryer sheets (and re-use!) is to toss a sheet in my dirty clothes hamper. It's an easy, lazy way to keep everything smelling good til I'm ready to wash them. (More crucial for clothes that have gotten REALLY yucky, like from gardening, or biking.)

  58. I've used dryer sheets in the bottom of the trash can before, but the most interesting non-traditional way I've heard to use them is to repel mosquitoes by putting one in your pocket while you are outside. I haven't tried it, but it sounds great!
