Purex is a trusted laundry detergent brand around our home. We have been using Purex detergent for years and have tried just about every combination and scent they have made. (Out of all the Purex products, the Triple Action Free and Clear is probably our favorite.) So when I got the chance to review Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets, I got really excited, I already loved the Purex Crystals – which is a fabric softener you put in the washer.
Details: Purex Dryer Sheets
The new Purex Dryer Sheets come in 2 scents: Mountain Breeze and Sweet Lavender. I received the Sweet Lavender for review, and have yet to try the Mountain Breeze. The box of 40 sheets has a claim at the top corner saying it is 3x the fragrance (vs. previous sheets) The dryer sheets duties are to soften fabrics and sheets, reduce static cling, repel pet hair and repel lint.
My Review of Purex Dryer Sheets
While I would love to tell you it achieved all those things (it probably does… I mean dryer sheets are not a new and crazy invention) I cannot tell you from my experience that they do! Truthfully, these dryer sheets were overwhelming too strong for me. At least their 3x the fragrance claim is correct!
I couldn’t stand to be in the same room as them long enough to load the laundry! I got a headache and had to leave the room! I am a bit sensitive, but not normally this much! These are really strongly scented! Although I won’t be using them for laundry, I did come up with the solution of putting them in boxes in the attic… they will keep the boxes smelling fresh for sure!
Overall Thoughts & Recommendations
Conclusion, if you are looking for a very strongly scented dryer sheet – Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets is just that. If you have sensitivities to scents – steer clear.
