I received a bottle of Purex with Crystals laundry detergent to review and have been using it for a couple of weeks. Honestly, the scent is nice, but it is a little strong for me. I love the cleaning power, (it gets tough dirt stains out easily) but I will stick with my homemade laundry detergent or Purex Free and Clear. If I have to buy detergent because I don't have time to make it, Purex Free and Clear is my favorite.
Although the scent is too much for me, I did appreciate the strong scent when laundering bedding after my son got sick the other night. If you are cleaning up after sick kids, this detergent is for you. Plus, it has great cleaning power with DirtLift Action.
"In 2013, the entire family of Purex detergents will have the power of DirtLift Action which works deep into clothes to get out dirt."
Enter to win the Experience the Enchantment Sweepstakes featuring Purex detergent plus Fabric Softener with Crystals Fragrance!

Not to sound like a dorky Mom, but I love wholesome shows I can watch with my family. I also love the Hallmark Channel and I always cry during Hallmark commercials.

Eating without gluten may be easier today than ever before. Bakeries are specializing in gluten-free treats, concession stands are selling gluten-free beer and merchants are stocking a variety of gluten-free foods. Sweet and savory treats are no longer taboo for gluten-intolerant folks—go ahead, have your cake and eat it, too!
Put pasta back on your plate – Gluten comes from a protein in wheat kernel. Traditionally, pasta is made with durum wheat flour or durum semolina (a.k.a. wheat). With the increasing prominence of gluten intolerance, companies are concocting faux pasta by replacing wheat with rice. Rice pasta looks the same, smells the same, tastes the same and generally cooks the same as regular pasta. Looking for whole grain pasta without the gluten? Try tossing brown rice pasta shells with your favorite organic dressing for a quick, tasty pasta salad.
It’s your party. Eat cake if you want to – Again, the wheat flour in most sweet sensations – cookies, cakes, pies – spoils any good birthday or wedding when you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. With the selection of cookies and cake mixes today, you finally have something sweet to celebrate. If you don’t want to make your own gluten-free dessert, look for a local bakery to satisfy your dietary and sweet tooth needs. At your next party, BYOD (Bring Your Own dessert) so you can indulge, too – sharing optional.
Cheers to beer – Wines are naturally free of gluten, so gluten-free sots will sip wine as a safe bet. (Warning: some vineyards add gluten to preserve freshness.) But what about having a beer while watching the game? Drive (sober) to the nearest liquor, or specialty wine, store for a variety of gluten-free beer brands. When you’re watching the game live, research the stadium before you go. Many ballparks feature concession stands dedicated to gluten-free fare, which might be just the ticket!
