Purex Fresh Pet Detergent Review

Disclaimer: I received a free product for my post! These views are my own and were not 
at all influenced by the party who gave me this opportunity..

purex fresh pet detergentI don’t know about you, but I do not like to wash my cat’s clothing in with our laundry for so many reasons. One, I’m afraid we will get cat hair in our towels. Two, I do not feel like wasting my special detergent that I have to use for sensitive skin on the cat. Three, my cat has certain needs and sensitivities not met by my laundry detergent. 

Purex has finally come out with a solution–their NEW Fresh Pet premium detergent!


Yes, my cat loves to wear sweaters

What I Love

Just like their other products, the pet detergent is great at getting rid of stains–food stains from your messy cat or mud stains from your playful puppy.

Not only does this detergent help with stains, it helps eliminate odor with Purex’s Odor-Control Action! Now, my cat is not too stinky when he is in his clothing, but imagine how much this will help if your dog gets wet while wearing his outfit or after playing outside in the rain and decides to take a nap on his bed.

The detergent has a light fresh-air scent that is subtle enough that it will not drive your pet bonkers. I could even handle it with my allergies. Because Purex Fresh Pet Detergent has a scent all its own, you can try washing an old pair of your socks in this to let your dog know which socks he is allowed to use as a chew toy!

I love that the Fresh Pet Detergent is gentle when it cleans. This means it will not ruin your pet’s clothing and bedding and will actually help to improve your pet’s coat by conditioning and moisturizing. It is also free of dyes that could harm your furry friend. Your four-legged family member will not have to worry about old, dingy, or scratchy linens any longer.

What I’m Not Huge On

IMG_7193 Since I only have one cat and he doesn’t use a soft bed there usually isn’t a full wash load of his clothes so using the washing machine is a little bit of a waste. I am able to use this product some by hand washing, but I feel this would be a lot more helpful for a dog owner who has more outfits and big dog beds to wash.

Overall, if you love to dress up your four-legged friend or need something special for washing your pet’s soft bed, Purex Fresh Pet Detergent is perfect for you! Pamper your pooch. Coddle your kitten. Grab yourself a bottle of the new Purex Fresh Pet from your local Walmart stores. Visit the Purex website HERE to learn more.

April Fool’s! Purex does not have any plans at this time to actually create Purex Fresh Pet, sorry!

  1. Oh my gosh! I had no idea! This must be super new. I have a big dog, but he doesn’t wear anything, but he does have a dog bed! I wonder if I can wash HIM in it?? Make him smell so fresh!

    • This would work great for a dog bed 😉 Purex does not recommend it for use on animals though but you could wash some towels with it so when you dry off your dog after a bath he will get the benefits of the moisturizing and conditioning from the washed towels 😉
