I recently had the opportunity to review Purex Natural Elements, an inexpensive, hypoallergenic laundry detergent that not only cleans deep down, but removes tough stains as well. While much attention is being focused on ‘green’ living, many companies are doing what they can to make their products more environmentally friendly. Natural Elements is Purex’s answer to a more green detergent.
The Natural Elements formula is biodegradable, dye-free and contains naturally sourced ingredients and natural fragrance extracts. So not only is it the perfect laundry detergent for protecting sensitive skin, but it helps to protect the environment too!
I had the opportunity to review the newest fragrance addition in the Natural Elements line, Tropical Splash! With the great cleaning power of Purex Dirt Lifting Action, I couldn’t wait to see how well it worked. Since my husband works in construction I figured a load of his dirt-covered, not-so-fresh smelling work clothes would be the perfect test for Purex Natural Elements.
After putting a load of his clothes in the wash, I added a partial capfull of the liquid laundry detergent, and set the washer. As soon as I had opened the bottle, I could smell the delightfully fresh, citrus-like scent of the Tropical Splash detergent. It smells of coconuts and pineapples with a hint of tropical flowers. It is quite pleasant, and I couldn’t wait to see if his clothes came out completely clean and smelling that nice. I liked how the bottle has an easy-to-pour spout, as well as one of those lids that allows the extra detergent left in the cap to run right back into the bottle instead of leaking down the sides. It not only saves detergent, but saves having to clean up a mess as well.
The moment of truth finally arrived. I opened the lid to the washer, and again noticed the incredibly fresh, tropical scent. One by one I pulled his clothes out to put in the dryer, and I was happy to see that each and every piece was clean! All of the dirt was gone, as were some deep-seated stains I had figured were there to stay! Purex Natural Elements did a fantastic job! And that wonderful scent? It remained long after the clothes had finished drying and were put away!
Purex Natural Elements is available in both liquid or powder form, and comes in three fresh scents, Lilac & Lavender, Linen & Lilies and the new Tropical Splash. It works great in all types of washers and at all temperatures. However, if you want to do even more to protect clothes from fading and use less energy, remember to wash your clothes in temps of 70 degrees and less.
If you are looking for a laundry soap with tough, stain-fighting power, a relaxing tropical scent and to feel good not only about your laundry, but the environment, too, then give Purex Natural Elements a try!
