Purex with Oxi and Zout Stain Remover! I can't give you Laundry Service, but I can give you a Free Product Coupon {#Giveaway}

Purex plus Oxi with Zout Stain Remover

We are a week away from Thanksgiving, and you know what that means? Getting the house ready for in-laws, clearing out some drawers and closet space for houseguests. Let's not forget swapping out the stuff in the closet and taking down the sweaters and extra blankets. All this leaves you a flurry of extra wash to do. And as much I'd love to provide you all with a Merry Maid as a holiday gift, I haven't quite hit the Powerball yet.....

But since I know you are all on Santa's 'Nice' list, I can share that I have hit on a detergent that takes the extra prep work out of heavy duty laundry loads and tough stains!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Purex® plus Oxi is so powerful, it works against over 101 different stains!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - The three stain-fighting enzymes in Purex plus Oxi each work against different types of stains for the most Purex stain-fighting power you can get.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - For ALL Machines, works with both Front and Top Load Washing Machines! (I have a very old Top Loader that is on it's last legs, so it's super helpful to have a powerful detergent because with my machine I now have to use more detergent than I normally would to get the results I like).

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Sensitive Skin? Purex Plus Oxi is hypoallergenic!

My Take:

I love that this can be used as a pre-treater as well, it saves you from buying extra product, and it works for all machine types! I really do think there is something behind the extra bubble power of the Oxi that helps to fight tough stains. You are getting triple the stain fighting power for a much more reasonable price point than the 'leading brands'. The one amazing thing that has come out of blogging for me is that it has made me way more flexible and open to try new things. I have to admit that shopping for some things at times can become a bit rote and routine and I end up doing it on 'Auto-Pilot' and tend to stick to the same old same old, but now that I've tried this one, I would continue to rebuy it, I look forward to this particular Triple Action being offered in a wider variety of scents, it's currently only available in 'Fresh Morning Burst'. I have a tendency to get 'un-scented' Laundry Detergents so I can leave the final scent to the Fabric Softener, so I hope they offer this one in an un-scented soon. I do like the scent, but like having the option! :)

Win it:

I can offer 2 lucky butterflies a Free Product Coupon so you can try out Purex plus Oxi with Zout Stain Removers for yourself! And maybe we can something about the Laundry Service after all, Purex is hosting a $1,000 sweepstakes on their website! You can enter their contest daily to win $1,000 cash or 1 of 250 gift cards! That can certainly buy you some Laundry Service and then some! Who Loves YOU Butterfly?

Ascending Butterfly's 2012 New Year, New You! Giveaway #1 brought to you by:


Is Fitness part of your new years goals?

As many of you already know I slowly lost 26 pounds over the entire year of 2011, and this year I've lost a bit more weight already but not quite for good reasons (see this post for why: Before my medical setback hit, I had dreams of a Fitness fueled January, I had been enjoying my Wii Dance Games and seeing great results with them.

For me I need a lot of variety in my fitness routines to keep up with them so I can see good results, and my dance games via the Wii have offered me just what I need in terms fitting MY schedule, being challenging (particularly the latest Zumba that really keeps track of your progress and allows for an adjustable intensity in the workouts), and they are FUN. I play both alone and on weekends with family and friends, which makes fitness and health goals much more fun. I can't wait until all this over to get back into my routine again.

Before my medical setback hit in December, I had received an exciting review package from Jockey and Purex that included a Jockey® Sports Bra along with one full-sized Purex Crystals in the 'Tropical Splash' scent. I am both a Jockey and Purex Insider!

About the Jockey Sports Bra

The Bra is a 93% Poly and 7% Spandex Blend with a racerback and an inside key pocket (stash your locker key while at the gym!) with breathable mesh panels and mouisture wicking fabric. I also like Sports Bras as sleep bras (I'm ahem a 'blessed' chested gal) and like the extra support even at night. This bra is my new favorite bra while doing Zumba (under my workout tank of course, I don't think I'll ever be that girl working out in just my sports bra and nothing else over it). And as most workout tanks are made in that racerback style it's nice having a bra that holds up the girls to go under those tanks!

About Purex Crystals

Purex Crystals are 92% natural crystals that go in your wash at the start of the cycle. Which means no more second guessing or remembering to pour in the fabric softener, how convenient is that? The scented crystals get to spend more time with your clothes, infusing them with long-lasting freshness! Purex crystals do not contain oil making them perfect for all your laundry needs. I've made a complete to switch to Purex and find they impart a much more long lasting scent than the liquid fabric softener that I had been using for years!
Why the collaboration between Purex and Jockey? Fabric softeners have oils that can harm garments but Purex Crystals are 92% natural crystals that infuse long-lasting freshness into the fabric fibers of clothing without harming garments. So the crystals impart softeness and a fresh scent without harming in any way the mouisture wicking properties of the sports bra. Which means your Jockey Sports Bra will hold up longer!

 My Take:

Workout clothing and under-garments in general are an investment. Well endowed girls especially know just how quickly straps get stretched and worn out and bras have to be replaced often in that case, which is not cheap! And let's face it, while hand washing will help most garments last longer, WHO has that kind of time? I certainly don't!

I love that Purex doesn't harm the mouisture wicking fabric of the Jockey Terry Sports Bra, and I love using this bra during my favorite Zumba workouts (which I can't wait to get back to!). I definitely recommend them both. I have sensitive skin and there are some fabric softeners I'm actually allergic to, and I love that my skin does not react at all to the Purex Crystals!

You didn't think I'd forget about you right? Who loves you butterfly?

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - WIN IT! - Ascending Butterfly and our friends at Jockey and Purex would like you to help you keep to your fitness goals this year, and have one prize pack with the same items I reviewed for one lucky winner! Winner will receive a full size Purex Crystals and one Jockey Sports Bra (choice of size which includes: XS, S, M, L, XL)

Sunday Moment of Gratitude -Winning, Early Birthday Cake and More!

This week, I am grateful for

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Friday, March 18th bloggers were asked to take a day of silence for the people of Japan and Ascending Butterfly decided to participate. I am grateful to be part of a blogging community that thinks globally, not just locally! Remember, Donations can be made to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief by texting REDCROSS to 90999 for a $10 donation.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - That there are still many things that bring out the kid in me, and while I have one of those birthdays ahead of me, that many consider a 'cross roads', I received my first birthday cake WAY early this week (my birthday isn't until April) and it truly brought out the little kid me! I haven't opened it yet, and it's been difficult to resist the urge to dive into it and attack it! :)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I have had a great mail week this week! While I haven't had time to enter many giveaways this week, I did receive some prizes I won from various contests including some great purex coupons, and I found them on sale 2 for $5 isn't that awesome! And I also received an amazing Crisco Prize pack with gorgeous Pasta Bowls, (hand painted beauties made for William Sonoma!). Not to mention my early chocolate birthday cake!

What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for, and the more reasons that the universe will send you to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
