Free Sample: Purex with Zout 6 years ago 7 Comments Free Samples, Free Stuff Grab a free sample of the new Purex with Zout. Zout is just a stain treatment very much line Shout. I guess they didn’t get too creative with the name. Thanks, Maven of Savin! Share This Post Facebook Comments Elane Crum anxious to try it! Jill I see that Purex now says it works in both HE and Regular Machines, and so does ALL now, when I bought the rebate ALL at Menards. I guess they are trying to switch them all over to , working for both, instead of making two seperate kinds. Mercedes That’s great for us Jill because HE detergents used to carry a nice premium on their price tag. Mercedes MM Your comment about not being creative with the name makes it sound like Zout is a new product – actually, it’s been around since the early 1960’s, when it was created as a way for people in the medical profession to clean their scrubs. My mom used it for years, and I can remember it on the laundry shelf when I was a kid. We used it long before we ever tried Shout. Mercedes Mm, oh really? I didn’t know that! then maybe it was the other way around? Mercedes MM I’m not sure – but that wouldn’t surprise me! Either way, one company or the other looks like they had hoped to confuse people when the picked a name! Lots of freebies after rebate today at Office Max thru their MaxPerks program – thought I’d let you know, but several of the items are already sell-outs, like the erasers and the Mirado pencils. Order fast if you roll your rewards there! Pam Zout has been around for a long time, I have been using it for years. I learned about the product from my aunt who was a nurse. Many of the nurses she worked with used Zout because it takes out blood stains and even stains that are set or have been washed and dried. I don’t know which product came out first, but I would pick Zout every time!!
