Purex fabric softener sheets review and Giveaway!

Summer is laundry time around here. Actually, we do laundry all year round, but in the summer laundry is especially challenging. We live on a farm, so there is a lot of outside work, and that involves dirt and sweat. And because we raise sheep, sometimes we have lanolin in large amounts in our laundry. So I was quite pleased when Purex sent me a sample of the Purex laundry Softener sheets to try. The box boasts 3x the fragrance, and it is pretty true. The whole laundry room has a pleasant scent. And the laundry, smells great too, with no static cling.

Want to try it? I have 3 free coupons to give away to my readers. I will give away 1 coupon for a free box of Purex fabric softener sheets to each of the 3 people who enter with their unique ideas of using sheets, something other than laundry, of course. So just leave a comment and we will all learn something new. Drawing July 28, 2013.

    You can keep a few dryer sheets in a suit case to keep clothes smelling fresh while traveling.

    I put new dry sheets on my heater vents. It not only makes your house smell fresh, it also traps dust that would otherwise be pushed into the air! I rotate a new sheet each week and take turns with the vents. I actually replace 1 per week, using 4 sheets a month after initial start. Your house will smell fresh and you’ll save tons of money on air freshners!

  4. Patsy Tarver says:

    I put them in my dresser drawer to keep everything smelling clean and fresh.

  5. I use my “used” dryer sheets to clean off the screens of my electronics, such as computer screens and TV screens…..it picks up the dust and dirt without using any sprays.

  6. Misty Noble says:

    Here are my uses:

    1. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them. It also repels mice.

    2. Spread sheets around foundation areas, or in trailers, or cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.

    3. It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don’t get opened too often.

    4. It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

    5. Eliminate static electricity from your television or computer screen.

    6. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling,wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

    7. Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of Bounce.

    8. To freshen the air in your home – Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.

    9. Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.

    10. Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through a sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.

    11. Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.

    12. To freshen the air in your car – Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.

    13. Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the pan.

    14. Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket. Especially handy in bathroom & bedroom trash cans!

    15. Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

    16. Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds. Wipe the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.

    17. Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.

    18. Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag, gym bag or hamper.

    19. Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

    20. Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep the bees away.

    21. Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them. It will keep them smelling fresh.

    22. Wet a Bounce sheet, hose down your car, and wipe bugs off easily with the wet Bounce.

    23. Put a sheet of Bounce in your suitcase when traveling, it will help keep mites or any other critters out of it. While you are at it, travel with several Bounce sheets and run them up and down your bed linen before getting into bed, it will cause all the critters already in your bed to run. Keep a sheet in your suitcase even after you have unpacked to protect your suitcases from bugs nesting in it.

    there’s an internet rumor that dryer sheets act as an indoor pest repellent. I thought ‘what the heck’ — I leave a sheet or two on the back of my chair sometimes when there are more pests than I care to deal with on any given day. There are definitely less pests!

  8. Amanda Leach says:

    I love putting them in the drawers so when you putt clothes out, they still smell fresh!
