Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent Review


In order to update their detergent line, Purex has just rolled out their new Triple Action formula across the entire liquid laundry detergent line.  This new and improved formula delivers even better on Purex’s promise to leave your clothes bright, white and clean, and for the half the price of the leading brand!  After a year of research, scientists have come up with this even better Purex formula.  It uses the current formula contents, plus new additions to really attack stains!

This new formula, just like the current detergents, has been specially formulated to work in both traditional and High Efficiency (HE) washers.


As a new HE washer owner, I love that I can continue to use Purex without a second thought.  They are a brand to most often turn to because of their affordability, toughness on stains and smell.  Now I usually pre-treat stains but I don’t always catch them and even if I do it doesn’t always matter.  I love that Purex has redesigned their formula to be tougher on stains, whites, and be gently on colors.

I have been using new Triple Action Free & Clear Purex for a few weeks now and it has been great.  It is tough on stains and gentle were it needs to be.  I have actually been using it in place of Dreft for Olivia’s clothes.  It is a perfect baby clothe’s formula since it is free of perfumes and dyes, but still tough on stains!  While it doesn’t really have a smell, it does leave her clothes smelling clean somehow!  With five of us in my household, I also need a laundry that is affordable and Purex is well within my laundry budget.  I am always amazed at how some people think only the most expensive products work the best, when often that is not the case.  With its new Triple Action formula I am hoping to pre-treat less and throw less stained clothes away, only time and dirt will tell!

BUY IT:  Look for Triple Action Purex wherever laundry detergent is sold!
