How Purex Saves Green

Less Water

In 2008 Purex liquid detergents moved permanently to smaller bottles and a 2X concentrated formula. And in 2012, new Purex UltraPacks took concentration to a whole new level. Purex UltraPacks are twice as concentrated as our already concentrated liquid detergents.

Purex UltraPacks have significantly less packaging than regular liquid laundry detergents.
