Purex 3-in-1 Sheets: "Does it Work?"

Posted: Updated:

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) – How would you like to combine adding detergent, fabric softener, and a dryer sheet into one easy to use step.  With the Purex Complete 3-in-1 laundry sheets, you can do just that, if they work.

The slogan: "Laundry.  Simplified."  The Purex Complete 3-in-1 laundry sheets are on a mission to make cleaning laundry much easier.  We're on a mission to find out if they can really hold up.  We have a sample pack of two to test effectiveness on two separate loads: colors and whites.  We'll test the cleaning power, the softening ability, and the anti-static claims.

The 3-in-1 is a simple sheet.  The sheet is covered with blue detergent for the wash and a green stripe is for softening and static removal in the dryer.  I set the water level and adjust the dial for a large cold wash.  The whole laundry sheet goes in first.  Then my load my colored clothes go into the machine.  After a few minutes of washing, I open the lid to find suds and a pleasant aroma.  After the wash, I move my clean load to the dryer, with the sheet.  Out of the wash and the blue is gone from the sheet.  It's just a fuzzy fabric left with a white color to it.  That strip along the top for the anti-static is still there.

Meanwhile, I soil an old pair of white socks with grass, cranberry juice, ketchup, and chocolate syrup.  I wipe off the bulk mess, leaving the stains.  I toss the soiled socks in the wash with my other Purex sheet, along with the rest of my white load to wash.  Once the washer finishes, the food stains are long gone out but some of the grass stain remains.  A pretreatment may have helped remove this tough stain.  The whites went for a spin in the dryer. 

With both loads dried and folded, I find the clothing run through with the 3-in-1 is clean, smooth, and static free.  They also smell fresh with a light fragrance.  So our trials find the Purex 3-in-1 sheets clean their way to a YES for this week's "Does it Work?" test.

As stated earlier, we sent for a free sample of Purex 3-in-1 sheets for our test.  However, we have found a twenty pack selling for around $6-8.
