Purex PowerShot: Review

Thanks to Purex for detergent to review, and for the coupons for the giveaway. All opinions my own.

 

Purex PowerShot

Housekeeping is not one of my hobbies, but honestly, laundry isn’t a task I mind. Dump the dirty clothes into the washer, pour in detergent, punch a button, and soon the clothes is clean! It’s kind of like a miracle.

However, there can be frustrations. One of them can involve measuring laundry detergent. Frequently, it seems that the lines on the cap are hard to see. Even if you can see them, there are so many. How much detergent should I use?

I know, I know — this is definitely a first-world problem. Still, is there a way to make measuring detergent easier?

Actually, there is, and Purex has come up with it: Purex PowerShot Detergent.

Purex PowerShot

Or, maybe I should put it this way:

Purex PowerShot

Because that’s how you use the detergent — turn the bottle upside down, and the proper amount comes out automatically. If you have a large load, just repeat the process once more for two “shots.” Couldn’t be easier! Don’t worry about turning the bottle upside down (I know I was a little skeptical at first). It’s a no-spill detergent bottle that will prevent the entire contents from escaping.

I’m happy to report that Purex PowerShot got my laundry nice and clean as well, but you’d expect no different from Purex.

Purex has a new contest, where you can win a brand new washer and dryer. I’d love to win, since mine are over 20 years old. You can also win free Purex for a year. You can enter once a day.

Would you like to try this fun new detergent? You’ll find it on store shelves, and thanks to Purex, two of you can win a coupon for a free bottle (I’ll also throw in a couple of $1.50-off coupons to each winner).

  1. When I think of my early memories of Grandma Schulte and Mother and what they went through on every Monday which was the wash your clothes day – well I stand amazed at today’s homemakers. To say we’ve gone soft is the understatement!

  2. Sorry I did not include this – for their soap – they totally used lye soap which THEY made!

  3. We love Purex products here, but I haven’t seen the power-shot in my local stores. Can’t wait to try it though, so fingers crossed I win it from you Susan. Thanks for the chance!

  4. We use the whole assortment of Purex products, from detergent to dryer sheets.

  5. I love the power shot idea! I think that it is very easy to use too much laundry detergent, and therefore not get your moneys worth. With this product it would be simple to get the right amount every time!

  6. I hate laundry! Ive used their No Sort detergent and liked it.

  7. I would love to win this product. And my current supply of laundry soap is running low.

  8. Laundry is my least favorite chore to do in the house. I think I may be able to convince my teenagers to try Purex power shot and maybe they will start doing their own.

  9. I just HAVE to make another comment. When I’ve seen people beating their clothes on rocks in a river to get them clean, or washing them on a scrub board, we *have* gone soft. Completely!

  10. I love Purex. They are definitely a brand I trust and I would love to try this new product!

  11. I actually like doing laundry over most other housechores. I do laundry on the weekends and I like to hang dry certain pieces. Air drying preserves the color of clothes longer.

  12. So glad my daughters have been doing their own laundry since they were about 10 years old.

  28. Purex makes laundry soooooooooooooo much easier don’t ya think– its not my favorite to do, but it is life

  29. PowerShot detergent will help your laundry routine because you will never have to measure your detergent again. By flipping the bottle upside down it will fill the cap with one super concentrated dose of detergent and then flip the bottle back over and the the PowerShot engine with automatically refill so you are ready for your next load. The best part about the PowerShot detergent is you never have any mess from the detergent overflowing again and when you smell you laundry you will be amazed.

  30. I love using Purex. It’s so economical and does a great job too!

  31. I am a big fan of Purex Crystals! I would love to try this!
