(Disclaimer: I’m a Purex Insider and received a sample of their product in exchange for a review. I was under no obligation to give a positive review. The opinions expressed here are 100% my own.)
I have 6 people, including myself, in my family – 3 boys and 3 girls. I have three different laundry bags, assigned to my husband and me, the boys, and the girls, and they are ALWAYS filled with grass-stained jeans and stinky socks by the end of the week. So can you imagine how I emotionally feel about laundry. I have to say, it’s my least favorite household chore. Have you heard of the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy product line yet? Oh boy, are you in for a treat!!!
Just like the other Purex Crystals, these aromatherapy crystals start at the very beginning of the wash, as opposed to mid-wash. Just pour them in, along with your clothes, so that it spends more time in the wash, infusing deep in the fabrics. That way, the scent will last longer than just a few hours. It will last for weeks. I absolutely love that!
Although I do love using this in its traditional sense, I wanted to try and apply it to other parts of my house. So I got the idea to spread the love to my trash can. Here’s what I did:
I combined a used dryer sheet (reusing is awesome), a scoop of the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy (I measured, using the cap, to line number 1, which was enough), and a string to hold it together.
This DIY air freshener was so easy to assemble, and toss in where ever it was needed. Earlier today, I went out to my van, only to be disgusted at a putrid smell that was filling up the area. I then found a rotten banana that was filled with fruit flies. The smell overwhelmed and defied my pregnant gagging reflexes. I tossed this DIY air freshener in the middle of my van, in hopes to get rid of the stench. After it was in there for a good 24 hours, I checked to see how nice it smelled, and without surprise the stench was gone. The smell of the air freshener was in no way overpowering, which I loved!
All in all, I love the long lasting freshness and how simple it is to use the Purex Crystals Aromatherapy. I highly recommend trying them out, if you ever get the chance to.
