Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets Giveaway!


*This giveaway is over!! Thanks to all who entered!*

I was selected to be a Purex Insider and recently had the opportunity to sample their new Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets! This product is seriously going to change the way you do laundry. The laundry sheet contains detergent, softener, and anti-static, and works as a 3-in-1. To use the product, all you have to do is put the sheet into your washing machine when you start your load, and then transfer it over to your dryer. That's it!

The first thing I noticed about the laundry sheet was the scent of the detergent. I could smell it before I even opened the package. It's such a clean and fresh smell, and I was very impressed with that! The second thing I was impressed with was the convenience. Using Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets cut my laundry prep time in half! Instead of having to measure out laundry detergent and fabric softener, and then put a static sheet in the dryer, I just had to pop the Purex Laundry sheet in the washer, transfer it to the dryer, and I was done! The third thing that impressed me was the finished product. Usually when a product promises convenience, it lacks in something else. But that was not the case with this product at all. It is extremely convenient to use, and also fulfills all my other expectations that I would have for a laundry detergent, fabric softener, and anti static product.

Now that I have tried it and loved it, I want you to have the chance to as well! The people at Purex have been kind enough to offer THREE of you a redeemable coupon for a FREE Purex Complete 3-in-1 starter kit or refill pouch.

You have 4 ways to enter:
(1) Leave me a comment to THIS post.
(2) Blog about this giveway with a link back to my blog, and then leave me a comment with the URL to your post.
(3) Follow my blog, or subscribe to my blog by email or RSS feed, and leave me a comment letting me know.
(4) Email a friend about my blog and/or giveaway, CC me at frugalityisfun (at) gmail (dot) com, and then leave me a comment!

Don't forget, for each of the 4 ways you enter, leave a separate comment so you have more than one chance to win. And as an added bonus, the first 4 people who comment will receive a coupon for Kashi Waffles!

The giveaway will end at 12:00 a.m. ET on May the 13th. Thanks and good luck!
