Whites go in this pile…darks go in this pile…here’s a load of lights…now what am I going to do with these couple of red items?? Have you ever found yourself just not wanting to deal with sorting your laundry? I seriously am not one for sorting clothes by color when they are dirty; I mean, I try, but I never know what to do when I don’t have enough for a load but I need the items washed anyway. This has resulted in a few items looking a bit dingy because of color bleeding accidents in the wash. Purex has a super awesome solution, their NEW Purex No Sort Detergent for Colors! Get ready to stop sorting!
Purex No Sort for Colors detergent is changing the rules for doing laundry! Learn more below!
What I Love
I love that Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent prevents color bleeding! This means no sorting your loads of laundry before you toss them in the wash saving you both time and money! This detergent contains a breakthrough Anti-Color-Transfer Technology that acts as a dye transfer inhibitor. Now, this does not mean that it is magical. Purex recommends that you still pre-wash strongly colored fabrics or new clothing (especially jeans) at least 5 times before washing in a load with other colors.
While your regular detergent will allow dyes to leak into the water and onto the other clothing in your wash load, Purex No Sort actually traps the loose dyes not letting them settle on the other fabrics in the load. This helps to prevent color bleeding and keep your colors bright–no more blue and red stains (too many of our clothing items have died victims of bleeding dye.)
I love that the loads we used Purex No Sort detergent on, full of whites, lights, darks, blues, and reds, came out without any stains. I slightly expected to see little droplets of dye stuck to the bottom of the washing machine, but everything was as clean as could be!
What I’m Not Huge On
Once again, this detergent is a little too strong for my allergies. I can only handle very small amounts, so my husband mainly uses this for his work clothing and a couple bright items here and there. I did find one way to make this work a little better for me (see the tip below!)
Overall, this detergent is a high quality product just like the rest of Purex brand products. If you are sick of sorting and ready to save yourself some time, clothing, (and money,) give Purex No Sort for Colors detergent a try.

Bonus Tip: Detergent a little too strong for you? Have a specialty detergent you want to stretch a little bit? I mixed half the recommended amount of Purex No Sort for Colors detergent with half the recommended amount Purex Free & Clear detergent and it worked well! While my solution may not have full-force color bleed protection, it still helped a little in preventing color leakage, stretched the detergent a little longer, and did not bother my allergies nearly as much as an undiluted cap of Purex No Sort. Why limit detergent mixing to just No Sort? My mom mixes the Free & Clear detergent with the Purex with Crystals detergent all the time and I have mixed it with Purex Natural Elements and Purex Mountain Breeze!Know someone who could use this?

-Have you lost any laundry to dye transfer? Would no sorting laundry make your life easier?
Did You Know? Adding one blue article of clothing to your load of whites will actually help your whites look brighter! This is the reason most detergents you purchase are dyed blue. The concept applies in other areas as well such as wearing blue-tinted lip color (or I used to use blue-tinged blueberry kids’ lipgloss over my lipstick) to make your teeth look whiter!
