Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent~Review and Giveaway!

Its time for some giveaways! As you may remember, I am a Purex Insider, and they are letting us in early on some great new products and promotions they have going on.  In the next few weeks, I will be having THREE  separate giveaways for Purex laundry detergent!! 

My first review and giveaway is for Purex Triple Action laundry detergent.  This new formula takes the best part of Purex's current formula and combines it with new additions, to deliver even greater cleaning and improved brightening power.  Just like Purex's other detergents, Purex Triple Action works in both traditional and HE washers. 

I have been completely pleased with all the Purex products I have tried in the past, and this new Purex Triple Action was no exception.  I received the Mountain Breeze scent-it smells great!  There are several scents available, as well as a Free and Clear. 
The first time I used Purex Triple Action laundry detergent I decided I would try it on some clothes my young son had worn outside climbing trees.  I figured that would be a very tough test of how much cleaning power this detergent has!  I didn't even pre-treat anything first.  The laundry came out perfectly clean and fresh, you would never know the abuse it had taken!!  It smelled wonderful too!  Although I usually make all my own detergent, Purex Triple Action is my next choice for when I run out of my own, or have extra dirty clothes.  Also, Purex is the best value out there for the quality you are getting.

Starting in February 2012, be on the lookout for the chance to get free samples of Purex detergent at http://www.freesamplepurex.com/!  I love free samples!!  I will let you all know when the link goes live so you can get your sample. 

Now, for the GIVEAWAY!!!! (I love those too!!):
I have coupons for a full size bottle of Purex Triple Action for 3 readers!!  You have 7 different ways to get entries:

1.  Leave a comment below, answering this question: Do you smell your clean laundry as you are folding it (or putting it away, or...)?  I know, strange....but the reason I'm asking is because I do and I want to know if I'm weird for doing it!! *Clarification: I don't smell it continually, just once or twice.  Love that clean smell!
2.  Check out this product at www.Purex.com/TripleAction and leave me a comment with something you learned about this new detergent or Purex. 
3.  Follow me on Google Friend Connect on the right sidebar, and leave me a comment to let me know you are a follower. 
4.  Follow me on Twitter @athenalang and leave me a comment letting me know your twitter name.
5.  Tweet about the giveaway, and leave me a link to the tweet.
6.  Facebook about the giveaway, and leave me a link to the post.
7.  Blog about the giveaway, and leave me a link to your blog post. 

This giveaway will end on January 12th, 2012 at midnight MST.  I will email and announce the winners the next day.  Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!

*Disclosure: Purex provided a free sample of their Triple Action laundry detergent so I could write a review.  However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.

I don't deliberately smell it, but usually its strong (and nice) enough to be sort of wafting off the clothes, lol. jessicapeeling@yahoo.com

If everyone in the United States switched to buying Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets, 41 Olympic-sized pools worth of water would be saved each single refill purchase vs. purchasing a standard 50oz bottle of liquid detergent!
