As a Purex Insider, First Class Fashionista was able to try the new Purex Complete with Zout, a triple enzyme stain fighting remover. There is no easier way to write a review than to be honest and this is an honest review based on my personal experience. I’m almost sure results may vary. I’m glad to be a Purex Insider and I had a really great experience trying the new Purex Complete Softener.
Product: Purex Complete with Zout Free & Clear
Description: Purex Complete with Zout can be used to pre-treat tough stains or as a detergent.
How it works:
Protease: Works against protein based stains such as grass and blood.
Amylase: Works against starchy stains such as chocolate and tomato sauce.
Mannanase: Works against guar, which is used as a thickener in many foods, such as ice cream, barbecue sauce and salad dressing because it’s super sticky.
What I liked about Purex Complete with Zout: Based on my experience, I liked Purex Complete with Zout Free & Clear because it works to lift stains, brightens laundry, removes blood and pasta stains and doesn’t irritate my skin.
At my house we are always so excited to be given the opportunity to try new products, so the very same evening we were delivered the new Purex product and before I even tested the first load, my husband and daughter had each tried the new Purex Complete with Zout on a load of laundry. My husband’s first reaction was “this doesn’t work” because a blood stain was not removed from his shirt. But, before reading the directions on the bottle, I said “I bet you have to pre-treat the stain”. For the second wash, we followed the directions and the result was Purex Complete with Zout got the blood stain out. My daughter’s reaction was “It works”. She used it as a detergent and it brightened her whites.
When I finally got to use the much talked about product, I pre-treated stains my daughter and I identified as a syrup stain on the Abercrombie shirt and a wine and pasta stain on the Hollister shirt. These were tough stains, which I unusually can get out using my own stain removing secrets. As directed, I poured the detergent directly on the stain, rubbed and let stand for 5 minutes. After washing and drying, honestly I was disappointed. The stains were lifted, but not out.
“It’s a powerful combination that works to get stains out the first time-even tough stains like grass, chocolate and tomato sauce.”
I pre-treated again, this time for 6 minutes and washed and dried the shirts a second time around. The pasta stain was removed, the wine stain is barely noticeable, but the syrup stain had still only been lifted. I have included a picture gallery below.
Disclaimer: I’m not a scientist, so I don’t know if Purex Complete with Zout was developed to get these stains out. I didn’t have the opportunity to try Purex Complete with Zout on chocolate, ice cream, barbecue sauce, salad dressing or grass stains.
