Purex Complete with Zout and Crystals Softener

I have been enjoying my summer vacation from work. My family and I have done lots of fun and exciting activities this summer. Today we hit the beach and had a fabulous time. The only thing I hate about a beach day is the clean up afterwards. We had a ton of smelly, dirty towels from our outing and I figured this would be the perfect time to try the Purex Complete with Zout and the Purex Complete Crystals Softener that I got to try thru the Purex Insider.
One load of towels later and I think I'm in love! My towels look great, smelled fresh, and were softer than they have been in a long time! Here are some reasons why I am so impressed with these products
Purex Complete with Zout detergent:
  • Zout-a triple-enzyme stain-fighter! Works as pre-treater and a detergent.
  • Works in ALL washing machines (I hate when a product is for HE only).
  • Great Price and available at many stores including: Walmart, Target, Kroger, and Publix!
  • Free & Clear formula available for sensitive skin (a must in my family) and a Fresh Morning Burst fragrance.

Purex Complete Crystals Softener:

  • 92% natural, not oil-based like other liquid fabric softeners. The traditional oil based softeners coat the fabric and therefore can make fabrics like towels less absorb. (Big plus here!)
  • It's the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear (A must in my household).
  • Great fragrances (I got to try Fresh Spring Waters and it smells FAB-U-LOUS).
  • EASY-you just add this softener at the beginning of the wash cycle. That's it!

After trying these two products I'm in love with the Purex Complete line and thanks to the Purex Insider I have 1 coupon to give away for a FREE Purex Complete Crystals Softener 28oz bottle. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post about what you find interesting about this Purex Complete line and one person will be selected for the coupon.

Disclaimer: Purex Insider did send me free products to try but the opinions are my own.

Lawry's Marinade

I don't know about you but I love a good BBQ meal! So I was very excited to be chosen from to try Lawry's Marinade this summer. I have always enjoyed Lawry's Seasoned Salt on my food but I never had the pleasure to try their marinades. I was sent Balsamic Herb and Original Seasoned Salt Marinade. These are 30 minute marinades which are perfect for me because after a long day at work I'm never quite sure what we will be eating for dinner and it's usually a last minute decision.
I first tried the Original Seasoned Salt Marinade with chicken. I marinaded the chicken for a little over 30 minutes and grilled it indoors on my grill pan. I put the chicken on a roll with lettuce, tomato and bacon. I also topped it off with a mixture of mayo and the extra marinade. Wowsers! It was fantastic! The chicken was very flavorful for being marinaded for only about 30 minutes. Everyone at the table wanted seconds which made me feel very happy.
Next I used the Balsamic Herb to marinade steak. This time I did marinade for more than 2 hours because I a little more time that evening. I once again grilled indoors with my grill pan and cooked the steaks. I made mashed potatoes with extra butter and Lawry's Seasoned Salt and broccoli. Overall this meal with a hit with the family and was easy to make!
Lawry's Marinades are new, quick and flavorful. I would definitely recommend Lawry's Marinades for your summer grilling fun!

Velveeta Cheesy Skillets House Party

I got the pleasure to try Velveeta Cheesy Skillets through House Party. These skillets are awesome!!!! I believe they are much better then the typical hamburger skillets we all grew up eating. It takes about 30 mins to create a great family friendly meal. There are four varieties: chicken and broccoli, ultimate cheeseburger mac, nacho supreme, and zesty bbq chicken. It's hard to pick a favorite because they are all delicious but I liked the ultimate cheeseburger mac and the zesty bbq chicken the best! The Velveeta Cheese really makes these meals outstanding. These dinner kits can be found at Walmart for $1.75. Not too shabby at all. I would highly recommend you pick up and try one of these dinner kits tonight! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
