Purex Ultra Packs are:
*Convenient pre-dosed liquid detergent packs that make doing laundry easier then ever.
*No more mess. No more spills. No more heavy jugs. It's Laundry Simplified.
*Each Purex Ultra Pack contains powerful 2X concentrated liquid detergent.
*Dissolves quickly once the washer is started - even in cold water.
*Formulated and safe for all machines, including high-efficiency (HE).
I was very excited to receive the sample. I recently was complaining about how I hate when the detergent runs down the bottle and gets on whatever you set the bottle on and makes a mess. Using these little Ultra Packs there was NO mess...I LOVE IT! At first I was unsure how it would work and dissolve the little sack holding the liquid. So I started filling the washer with water and I dropped the pack in. I watched for a little while and nothing seemed to happen so I reached in and squeezed it and the liquid poured out and seemed to pool together in the water. My first impression was, where's the bubbles and soap suds? Then I thought, oh well I will stick with my other laundry detergent. So I put my clothes in and walked away. A few minutes later I found a couple of socks that fell out of the laundry basket and went to throw them into the washer and was very surprised by all the bubbles and soap suds. I was thinking maybe this is good detergent after all. I have two kids in my house that play hard and get really dirty (my 6 year old son and my husband). These little Ultra Packs did a great job on our laundry. Our clothes were clean and smelled fresh. After the first load I stopped watching the little packs in the water and boy was it quick and easy to do laundry with out the mess.
Yesterday, my teenage daughter decided to throw a load of her clothes in the washer and asked me which bottle is the laundry detergent? I went in and told her she needed to try the Ultra Packs. I gave her one to feel and told her to start filling the washer and then throw the pack in. She asked, is that all? I said, that's all, now you can add your clothes. Her reply was, that's cool! I am sure when she heads off to college she will be a Purex Ultra Pack user.
I was very pleased with this product. In mid February 2012, FreeSamplePurex.com will be back up and running so you can try Purex Ultra Packs for yourself. Stay tuned for my information.
**Purex provided a free sample of their Ultra Packs laundry detergent so I could write a review. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.
So I decide that I would share this issue with one of my followers. The issue has $52.49 worth of coupons inside and a lot of great tips for saving money.
I will randomly pick one followers who comments on this post about wanting the issue. You will be given a number in the order the comments come in (ex. 1st comment will be #1). Please only post one comment per person.
I will pick the winner Friday, January 13th at 9:00 pm so I can mail the magazine Saturday.

If you don't have a game night with your family or friends, then it's about time you started. You are missing out on a lot of fun! Who cares if your house is a mess! If they are your friends they won't care as long as the food and company are good!
Hasbro would also like you to start a game night in your home! While supplies last they are offering 3 different coupons for games. So don't hesitate, print your coupons while supplies last, purchase your game, choose a game night and invite your friends over for some fun!
