No More Wasting Time Sorting Laundry @Purex No Sort for Colors {Review and Giveaway}

Are you sick of sorting laundry. Does laundry take up way to much of your time?  As a Purex Insider I get to share the scoop with you guys about a brand new Purex product that has changed all the laundry rules.  That's right all the rules today we're going to chat about the NEW Purex No Sort for Colors laundry detergent.


 photo photo16.jpg

As a mom of three busy kids I have mountains of laundry and more mountains each week. I seriously question where it all comes from and how they go through so many clothes in a week.  Regardless the mountains are always present.  I've also had quite a few laundry mishap over the years.  Accidentally turning my sons white baseball jersey pink , not to mention socks and underwear.  It's always fun to mess up an entire load of laundry . Yes, I've done that one turned everything in the wash pink oopsie.   The New Purex No Sort for colors detergent is the latest laundry innovation designed to simply your daily laundry routine.  If you heard this you said, "how?"  So KEEP on READING friends because I'm going to share the how.

 photo photo15-1.jpgSee that cup of liquid laundry detergent?  That is the Purex No Sort laundry detergent.  This detergent features a break through technology which traps loose dyes in the wash and reduces color bleeding.  Cool right?  That is right this detergent reduces color bleeding accidents in your mixed color loads leaving your clothes both  bright and clean.

 photo photo23-3.jpgHere we are giving it a try.  That load of laundry is definitely not sorted it has a little bit of everything in it. Ever just toss everything you can get in a load in to get the job done faster? Yeah, that is me.   Now Purex does stress this new laundry detergent is not a miracle worker. They strongly recommend that you follow the directions and wash strongly colored fabrics or  pieces of clothing at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load.   What did I think exactly?  Well that load of laundry had several pieces of red clothing in it .  You all know how red can fade.  It also had my white socks, a bra and some white t-shirt right along with some red socks, red baseball jersey , jeans and a towel. Told you it was a mixed load.  Nothing faded on them they all came out as good as they went in.  So thanks Purex this Insider was one happy lady with the new Purex No Sort Laundry detergent.  I look forward to changing the rules at the Whitehead's and getting the laundry done maybe a little faster.  I told you we always have mountains.

How to Make a Gum Ball Machine Fish Bowl

When I was little I had an aquarium that looked just like a bubble gum machine.  I also had a real life gum ball machine. Actually, my mother still has that gum ball machine it might be an antique gum ball machine at this point I just had another Birthday.  I saw on Pinterest where people were re purposing those old gum ball machines to make fish tanks.  My mom said ,"No Way".  That meant it was time for a plan B..  I love love clay pots and after doing some more browsing on Pinterest of course I was inspired by the post Swimming with Gumballs by Gauche Alchemy. I decided to try my hand at a terracotta pot gum ball fish bowl for C.  This makes for an inexpensive and easy craft project your children will love.

 photo ClayPotFishBowl.jpg

What You Need for the Project.


  • 1 fish bowl
  • 1 terracotta pot large enough to hold the glass fish bowl 
  • the base to 1 terracotta pot (large enough to fit on top of the bowl)
  • marbles, rocks, , gems, gravel whatever you want to go in the bottom of your bowl 
  • red spray paint 
  • beta fish
  • one red lit from a drink bottle (like coke)
  • hot glue gun
 photo GumBallFishBowl2.jpg

All you need to do... 

  1. paint your pot and pot lid red 
  2. let them dry and apply a 2nd coat if needed
  3. once this is dry you can bring inside set your  pot upside down and place your fish bowl on top
  4. add your marbles or rocks  and water if you have chlorinated water you will need the drops to remove chlorine or bottled water
  5. Now it is time to get a fish we have a beta fish
  6. hot glue 2 liter bottle lid (red) to the top of fish bowl
 photo GumBallFishBowl.jpg

C. named our fish Blue fish .  He loves his blue fish.  I was worried about the fish having air but it does fine. I read that the air circulates when you remove the lid for feeding.  I really don't know if this is a fact I just can honestly say our fish is doing just fine and has been for a while now.  I think this makes for a very decorative fish bowl.  The kids say its a very cool fish tank. I really wanted to use marbles in the bottom of our bowl to look like gum balls. However, there are no marbles to be found in the small town that I live in. I need to order some. For now we are using the colored glass marbles that you can find at Walmart on the fish aisle and also in the craft section.  I also purchased a pack of the green glow in the dark balls from Walmart.  They don't glow in the dark though so it was a total waste of $3. I have been debating on adding 5 cents on the front with my white craft vinyl and silhouette portrait.  I like it just the way it is , but I think that might make it even cuter. What do you think? 

Be sure and check out our Pinterest Board Clay Pot Crafts for other terracotta pot planter craft ideas.

Win (2) $100 Gift Certificates to @BethlehemBooks #MissionGiveaway

MG Banner Logo I love to read and I love to share that love with my children.  Younger children can learn many lessons through reading.  We use books thought out the day in preschool to teach lessons about character , and so much more.  This weeks Mission Giveaway sponsor is Bethlehem Books find out more about them below.

About Our Sponsor

bethlehem books logo
FOR THOSE of you who don't know us—Bethlehem Books is a small, home grown publishing company dedicated to restoring to children and families a treasury of wholesome, character-building literature. We are more than just a business. Our work springs from the heart of the Bethlehem Community of Benedictine Oblates, a lay group of families and single people which began in 1971. Years of educating our children at home had acquainted us with libraries and second-hand stores and had shown us a wealth of good children's literature published during the last fifty years. To our pleased surprise this appreciation has developed into an actual "rescue mission" of reprinting a few of these good books which rest on solid moral values of a Christian Culture. We publish tried and true historical fiction, adventure tales, biographies, and family stories which help children and young adults expand their imagination and understand the past. Over the years, we have watched many good books disappear from library shelves. In 1994 we launched our book apostolate to help remedy this situation. So far we have published over eighty books and are looking forward to reprinting many more.

The Prizes
