A Scrapbooking Update

I posted some more scrapbook pages onto my Flickr account. They are from Wesley's baby scrapbook, our trip to Disney, and an anniversary scrapbook I made for Michael's parents.

I also wanted to recant a statement that I made earlier in this blog. Purex is not a good laundry detergent! I have been using it for the past several months instead of Tide. I was just trying to save some money, but it just doesn't clean as well over time. The first bottle was fine. I am finishing up the second bottle and I am noticing that stains are not coming out, clothes are pilling, there are weird brown marks on all my clothes and they are just looking more worn!! So, I am using Tide again and I hope that I can save some of the clothes that Purex ruined!!

I hope the wierd brown marks arent from your dryer. We've had that happen where the dryer kind of pinches the clothing, thus scorching it and leaving a small brown streak. Very sad. And scary.

the one time i tried to save money and use purex the husband developed a severe body rash (it looked akin to leprosy) and had to go to the dermatoligist! purex = evil.

I agree, Purex sucks. It just doesn't get the clothes very clean! We use All and I love it. It's cheaper and it gets the clothes clean even when I cram the washer too full! :) I use the free and clear kind because of Hailey's sensitive skin but the regular kind in the blue bottle works great too.

Wow, well, I'll be sure never to pick up Purex in order to save money. I've been using "GAIN" and I like the way it smells and it cleans great. And, if I remember correctly, it's ~slightly~ less expensive than Tide.

Not sure if you guys have this where you are but...I changed over to this stuff called "Persil". It's a granular detergent from Germany....a little more costly initially...but then you only use a tablespoon and the box lasts me 3 - 4 months (that's 7 loads a week). It cleans really well but the best thing....Aleks' exczema has improved while using it. Definitely recommend it.

Watch out for those brown stains...like your am says they may be from your dryer. I was told it was rust, but the scorching sounds more reasonable.

Am going to take a peek at your photos.

I'm so sorry! I've noticed the dryer putting brown marks on my clothes before (I think it was when we still had our old dryer & it was going bad)

I'm one of the few that really likes Purex. I've never had any trouble with it. One reason I love it though is because it's fragrance & dye free. Because of my severe allergies I can't be around scented laundry detergents & fabric softeners are truly awful for my sensitivities.

I can not believe you have been able to get so many pages done!! And they all look so different from each other and come out great!!! I am jealous:)
