Reviews: Purex plus Clorox 2 Detergent

Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent combines the bright clean of Purex with an extra powerful boost of Clorox 2 stain fighters.

Introducing new Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent, formulated to remove the toughest stains.  Pures plus Clorox 2 detergent works on 100 stains, is safe for colors, and bleach free.  Available in two fragrances: Original Fresh and Sunny Linen!

Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent contains 3 stain-fighting enzymes to remove 100 stains:
- Removes starchy stains like chocolate and tomato sauce.
- Removes protein-based stains like grass and blood.
- Removes foods stains that use guar gum like ice cream and BBQ sauce.

I used to use Clorox 2 a long time ago but stopped using it because I didn't care to take the time for an extra step.  So I was glad to hear that Purex now has a detergent that has Clorox 2 right in it called Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent.  That's one less step for me to take.  Now I can return to using Clorox 2 again.  Since I don't get a lot of stains on my cloths I didn't notice too much if it removed any or not.  However, when I do come across a stain I forgot to pre-treat, I'll be glad I was using Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent to help remove the stain.  As with most Purex detergents I had to mark on the cap where they suggest the amount to use because I always have a hard time reading the marks on the inside of the cap.  I also really like the smell of the detergent that I got which was Sunny Linen.

If you'd like to learn more about Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent and other products Purex makes you can visit the Purex website.  You can also follow them on their social pages:

The bars of soap late in February about a week after I requested them on February 17th.  In fact, I received one of the five bars of soap two days before I received the other four bars which I thought was odd that one would come earlier than the other four.  I was happy with how quickly these arrived.

Not sure what to spend your points on like me?  How about some nice soap?  Right now you can get a free coupon code to redeem at the OneTwine store for a 5 oz bar of Nubian Heritage African Black Bar Soap for only 1,500 points (regularly $4.99).  I think right now this is the best reward to spend your points on.  Just go here and click where it says "Get this Reward".  You can request five at a time (this is what I did).  Once you request your coupon you will receive an email (almost immediately for me) from Recyclebank with your coupon codes.  You will have to redeem one coupon per transaction and the loading was a little slow for me.  The soap has free shipping if you only order the soap.  If you order more items in the store they will charge you $4.95 flat rate shipping.  I'm so happy I was finally able to request something of interest to me with all of my Recyclebank points I have accumulated since the last time I requested something which was a couple years ago.  So hopefully this will be of interest to you too so you can use some of your points as well.
