  1. Lawna Young says

    I have been using this in my laundry lately and I absolutely love it. The scent is amazing and lasts quite a while.

  2. Robin Rue says

    I am heading to the store today, so I plan on picking up a bottle. I keep hearing all these good things, so I need to try it.

  3. I currently use this in another scent. Love how it makes my clothes smell. Always dry your clothes right after washing so they don’t sit in the wet machine for hours and get the musty smell.

  4. I keep my clothes cleaning by using the dawn,hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda mix on tough stains. I let it work its magic then wash.

  5. For me, I use generic versions of most things unless I have a coupon. However, when it comes to laundry detergent I stick with my favorites. I love these crystals, too! The only thing I like about laundry is the fresh smell when you pull it out of the dryer!

  6. I like to use a scented laundry detergent or scented dryer sheets. Love Purex Crystals and the way they leave my laundry smelling.
    Thank you!

  7. nickie burke says

    I like to use a scented laundry detergent.

  8. steve weber says

    I use Purex Crystals as well as Purex dryer sheets.

  9. Kelly Tupick says

    Some of the secrets I do would be to pre-soak and stains with a stain remover right off. I try to use some sort of fabric softener to keep the clothes feeling soft and clean and nice smelling detergent usually helps too. The purex crystals work great in keeping the clothes smelling fresh.

  10. Amanda @ Erickson and Co. says

    Purex laundry soap works pretty well at our house and we have super hard water. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Purex Crystals are awesome. I have to try out this new scent, I don’t think I have seen it yet. I haven’t shopped for laundry detergent in a while though.

    • Chickie Brewer says

      My laundry secret is to presoak stains right away… I try to air dry them as much as possible.. I also make sure I don’t add too much detergent.

  12. I like to line dry my clothes outside when I can. I love the smell that it leaves. It is not like any other.

  13. mail4rosey says

    I have heard baking soda can help boost clean smells. I also like a nice smelling fabric softener. The Purex sounds great.

  14. TouristMeetsTraveler says

    I love these fragrance boosters they are great!

  15. I read so many great review about Purex crystals. I have it on our list of things to pick up next time we go grocery shopping.

  16. Jennifer Williams says

    I actually purchased some of this last week and tried it out. I was so happy to see it keeps up with my boys – if it can get out their stains it has to be good.

  17. Amberlee Cave says

    I love Purex Crystals! I have a bottle of this and it smells amazing! I am definitely going to be buying more! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  18. I too use scented beads in my wash. I have not tried the beads from purex though. I love scented clothes.

  19. I love how this really does linger in clothes. It smells so good!

  20. I wish I had some laundry secrets! I have not even used scented beads. But I have discovered that taking them out of the washer sooner rather than later is a good idea.

  21. Amanda Smith says

    I love Purex! I was apprehensive to switch to them from Tide but I actually love them!

  22. Veronica Solomon says

    I love using these fragrant crystals when I do laundry. Very nice

  23. When I wash a really smelly load, I add a bit of vinegar to the washer. It helps get rid of nasty odors!

  24. I never really tried this before – but it looks so good and perfect as a giveaway too!

  25. Just wondering if the scent is something I can get away with using on my Manly Man’s stuff…

  26. Donna Cheatle says

    I use a half cup of Borax in every single load, along with a capful of Purex Crystals. Clothes are bright and clean, and towels smell amazing!!

  27. I don’t really have any secrets. SOmetimes I let then dry in the sun though

  28. Amber Nelson says

    I have never tried the Crystals. I bet they smell great

  29. Natalie yeoman says

  30. tannawings says

  31. My number one secret is that to not wait too long to do the laundry

  32. hillary dionne says

    I do not really have any secrets besides using fabric softener in every load of laundry I do.

  33. I wash my whites alone, my reds by themselves, my darks together. I love fabric softner in my wash, the fragrance floats through out the house.

  34. I wash all of laundry in cold water and I use fabric softeners

  35. I wash my laundry with Purex for my HE washer, and use softener to keep them smelling fresh. I separate my laundry into whites, blues & greens, red/oranges/browns, lights, delicates, jeans, and linens. I was from darkest to lightest, and finish with the whites, so that remnants of the bleach won’t stain the colorful clothes.

  36. I don’t know if my laundry “secrets” are very secretive at all, but I always separate my laundry by color. For the whites, I use bleach on occasion (but not always) to avoid that faded white/yellowish tone. I usually air-dry any items made of delicate materials. Finally, I clean my top-load washer occasionally with a cycle of white vinegar and baking soda to avoid unpleasant odor.

  37. LIDARKSIDE says

    I soak my white laundry overnight in hot water, detergent, and bleach before washing to keep them white.

  38. lazybones344 says

    I don’t really have any secrets. I do laundry often and put it away as soon as its done.

  41. I keep my clothes fresh and clean by adding scent boosters in my wash. I really like Purex Crystals and Downy Unstoppables.

  42. rhonda1981 says

    I use downy unstoppables and put downy sheets in the clothing drawers

  43. If I notice clothes are coming out of the washer and still smelling not that fresh I wash them again with hot water and vinegar to refresh them.

  44. Lauren Olivia Wood says

    My laundry secret is to use baking soda to pretreat tough stains.

  49. Kathy Luman says

    I don’t have any secrets. I have been trying to figure out how some peoples clothes always smell so good. Maybe I will find the answer in this comment section 🙂

  50. Sarah Hall says

    I try to do my laundry every couple of days so there will be no funky smell from them being in the hamper too long. Also always pretreat any stains so that they will come out in the wash.

  51. Debra Hall says

    many years ago i stopped washing in warm or hot water…i found my cloths come much cleaner in cold water

  52. Desiree Dunbar says

    I like to dry my clothes outside as soon as the weather is nice and sunny. I’ve found it makes our clothes not wear out as quickly.

  53. Desiree Dunbar says

    I entered the P&G giveaway.

  54. Debbie Ritenour says

    I have used baking soda to help boost my detergent to get my laundry cleaner but nothing seems to work as good as Oxy clean so I use it all the time!

  55. I keep my clothes clean and fresh by washing them in a high efficiency washer and dryer.

  56. Aimee Fontenot says

    I don’t think I have any secrets for keeping my clothes fresh. I just use detergent, fabric softener, and Oxy most of the time. Sometimes if clothes are hanging in the closet for a while, I’ll spritz them with a little fabric refresher.

  57. Rebecca Williams says

    Can’t say I have any secrets but sometimes I will add lavender essential oil to a load of laundry. It makes the clothes smells so good.

  58. Erica Carnes says

    I like citrus scents.

  59. K Johnson says

    Honestly my secret is not using too much laundry soap or fabric softener. Find that it makes the clothes almost “sticky” in a way. Would love to try these Crystals though!

  60. Kimberly Deallovingrandma Stcl says

    Always use fabric softener. To keep smelling fresh I put dryer sheets in the dresser drawers

  62. yellowlabs says

    I use Purex Crystals and it really makes my laundry smell good!

  63. I do not have any trade secrets. I wash my cloths normal as directed by the tag. I wish that all cloths could be put in the same load, I hate it when I have a half load.

  64. Can’t say I have any secrets but sometimes i febreeze the clothes in my closet so they stay smelling nice and clean?

  65. natalia ryjova says

    I dont have any secrets with laundry. One thing I do is wear things more than once before I throw it in the wash. Pants I wore for a few hours do not have to be washed 3 times a week!

  66. Sky Evans says

    I always wash my clothing in cold water

  67. christina dutra says

    i had a capful of vinegar to the wash when i wash the bath towels, under clothes and dish towels.

  68. Pierre Mosbey says

    i hang dry my sheets and blankets after i wash them. they feel better when they are naturally dried.

  69. I don’t really have any good secrets to tell. I do use Purex crystals and love them they make my clothes smell so good and fresh.

  70. Amanda Whitley says

    i wish i had some good secrets. all i can say is using scented dryer sheets plus scented deteregent together makes them smell wonderful.

  71. Stephanie Grant says

    I don’t think it is really a secret but I use fabric softener sheets in the top of my closets and in my dresser to keep that fresh clean smell. I would like some other tips on keeping my laundry fresh and clean smelling. Thanks for the chance 😉

  72. I do not have any secret tips, but I buy products when they are on sale and use products they work for me and select scents that I like.

  73. I put them up immediately, I feel like the scent wears off if I keep them in the laundry room for too long…Our cat box is in there.
