Review/Giveaway: Purex Complete Crystals *CLOSED*

Today's review is on Purex Complete Crystals Softener. (Click the link for a coupon.)

The facts:
This is a NEW and innovative fabric softener made from 92% natural crystals. Other fabric softeners are made from oil and coat fabrics to make them feel more slick. When traditional fabric softener is used on children's sleepwear, it makes them flammable. Purex Complete Crystals Softener contains no oil and is easy to use. It goes in right at the start of the wash cycle. During the wash, the crystals spend the whole time softening your clothes and making them smell fresh.

My opinions:
My first thought was, "Whoa, they're crystals and not liquid!" I'll have to admit, I don't use fabric softener very frequently. The last time I used some (another brand), I didn't have a great experience. it did something strange to the fabric of a blanket I used it on. When I used the Purex Complete Crystals Softener, I was impressed. I smelled the fresh scent immediately and my pajamas were incredibly soft. I loved that I was able to put it in at the beginning of the cycle and walk away. It was easy to use and I didn't need too much. One thing I was most impressed by, is the fact that the smell didn't make me sneeze. I'm usually pretty sensitive to scents but this was pretty nice!

Over all, I give it 5/5 hearts.  
I felt no reason to give it any less. The benefits and results over generics and traditional liquid softeners was enough to convince me that this is an awesome product that really delivers.

DIY Tutus for Kids!

Do-It-Yourself tutus are really popular right now! Ever wonder how everyone is doing it? Look no further, I have the answers!

1. Find 2-3 colors of tulle that you'd like to use. This can be found at various craft or fabric stores. The amount you'll need will more than likely be less than 2-3 yards. The tulle comes in various prices. The cheapest I've seen is approximately $1-$2 a yard.

2. Cut six-inch wide strips. The length should be doubled from the waist of the person to their knee.

3. Take an elastic band ($1-$2) and stretch it around either a new roll of paper towels (for a baby) or a binder (for a child). Next, take the tulle strips and overlap two strips, each a different color.

4. Take the two strips and slide them onto the elastic. Make sure the elastic is right in the middle of the two strips. Tie is off twice.

5. Repeat that step until the whole elastic is full. You can sew-on black dots on red tulle to make a lady bug themed tutu. You can also alternate black and yellow to make a bee themed tutu.

After removing it from the elastic, your tutu should be full and beautiful! Dress it up in any way you like!

Wasn't that easy? :) Alternatively you can click here to see how FamilyFun did it!

FREE Chef Boyardee product!

Chef Boyardee Logo
FREE coupon to get a Chef Boyardee product!

Some of the best freebies are FOOD FREEBIES! In this case, Chef Boyardee, in collaboration with Walmart, will send you a coupon to get one free canned product of Chef Boyardee.

(Hint: Scroll all the way down and look for the blue button on the right that says, "Get Coupon".)

Some people ask why some places only send coupons and not the actual product. For obvious reasons, it's much cheaper to mail a coupon than it is to send a can of food. This way, you're also able to choose which product you want. ;)  Enjoy!
