As a family of five and with 3 young girls, we pile up a lot of laundry around our house. And I am not a fan of doing laundry… especially since I have to go to the basement to do it. There’s also so many steps involved- sorting, washing, drying, folding, putting it away- and IT. NEVER. ENDS!
But with the New Purex Triple Action UltraPacks laundry detergent, at least one part of doing laundry is so much easier now. You may actually use something similar looking in your dishwasher but these little packs are for your washing machine.
You just drop a Purex UltraPack in at the start of the laundry then add the clothes… so simple! The packs dissolve quickly and are low-sudsing for easy rinsing.

I love the ease and convenience of not having to lift a heavy laundry detergent bottle and not having to pour and measure anything. For normal size loads you only need one pack, but I tend to do extra-large loads so have been using two packs for most of my loads. The clothes also tend to have stains (ya know 3 young kids and all) so need the extra pack.
I did find that they didn’t dissolve as easily in cold water. And it actually didn’t dissolve completely when I washed in cold on gentle cycle. It left detergent on the clothes so they had to be re-washed. I’d say Purex UltraPacks are best used in warm or hot water and on a regular wash cycle (not gentle or delicate).
The NEW Purex UltraPacks will be available in stores February 2012. Check out the Purex Facebook page to stay up to date on all the newest products.
