Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips 

The fine folks from Purex and Combat sent me FREE Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips to try. Here's what their website says: "ANT KILLING BAIT STRIPS Combat® Ant Killing Bait Strips help get rid of ants. These ant killing bait strips are formulated to attract ants quickly – acting as a necessary food and water supply for ants. Its fast-acting insecticide, Fipronil, one of the most powerful ant killers, starts to exterminate ants in hours. Worker ants return to the colony and feed the bait to the larvae and to the queen, eliminating the entire ant colony. Combat® Ant Killing Bait Strips are easy to use so you can apply the new discreet design in hard-to-reach places. Combat® Killing Bait Strips is effective against Argentine, Cornfield, Odorous House, Thief, Pavement, White Footed, and Little Black Ants. KILLING BAIT STRIPS NOW AVAILABLE AT: Walmart, Home Depot, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Publix Call ahead to verify that product is in stock" "Directions for Use It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Keep bait strips away from open foods and food contact surfaces. Do not apply bait strips on food/feed preparation surfaces. Ant Killing Bait Strips are for indoor and outdoor (adjacent to the home) use. Break strips apart. To place strip in a chosen location indoors or outdoors (adjacent to the home), peel off protective film on the bottom of the strip marked “Remove to Adhere.” Stick the strip to a clean surface. Discard film in the trash. USE ALL BAIT STRIPS AT ONE TIME. To activate the strip, peel off the protective film on the top of the strip marked “Peel Here.” Do not spray insecticide on or around the strips as sprays will contaminate baits and reduce effectiveness. Replace strips after 3 months." "Benefits: One of the fastest active ingredients you can buy to kill ants. Insect nerve poison kills ants by contact or ingestion. New discreet design starts killing ants in hours so you can see immediate results. High secondary colony kill. Kills ants in a domino effect, eliminating the source of the infestation. Easy-to-apply to hard-to-reach areas." http://www.combatbugs.com/product/ant-killing-bait-strips What I say is: I tried the strips against the tiny black ants that have been getting into the house this spring, and I think they did a pretty good job. They haven't gotten 100% of the little buggers yet, but there are certainly far fewer, and it wouldn't surprise me if eventually they all get bumped off. The strips are easy to use, make no mess, and emitted no odor that I could smell. If you've got an ant problem, give 'em a try. One of you can try them for FREE!! Email me describing your ant problem, and I'll pick a random person to get a free package by the end of the weekend.

Purex Natural Elements Tropical Splash 

The fine folks at Purex sent me a FREE bottle of Purex Natural Elements Tropical Splash to try. Here's what their site says:

"Purex Natural Elements

Green Doesn’t Mean You Have to Compromise on Clean.

Purex Natural Elements® is the #1 selling natural laundry detergent* and delivers the deep-down clean you expect from regular Purex detergents, but contains naturally sourced ingredients with natural fragrance extracts. Hypoallergenic and dye-free, Purex Natural Elements detergents are perfect for sensitive skin.

*Based on IRI Total Multi-Outlet Dollar Sales of Natural Detergents
52 weeks ending 12-30-2012"

"Frequently Asked Questions

What is Purex Natural Elements detergent?
Purex Natural Elements laundry detergent contains naturally sourced ingredients and natural fragrance extracts that deliver the same great cleaning as regular Purex detergents. It’s available in several fantastic nature-inspired fragrances, which are also available in Natural Elements liquid fabric softeners. All varieties are hypoallergenic and free of dyes.

Aren’t detergents with naturally sourced cleaning ingredients usually more expensive than regular detergents?
Typically, yes. But Purex Natural Elements detergent actually costs the same or less than other brands. And with its biodegradable formula and natural fragrance extracts Purex Natural Elements products are an even greater value.

What is DfE, and how did Purex detergent receive special recognition?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) Design for the Environment (DfE) Program works in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders to reduce risk to people and the environment by preventing pollution. Purex applied for DfE recognition by sending Natural Elements detergent formulas to the EPA. The EPA then worked with the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to review all submitted ingredients. The EPA only allows use of the DfE logo when a product is best in its class, and Purex Natural Elements was the first major brand in the laundry care category to be selected to receive DfE recognition. For more information, visit the DfE Web site."


Here's what I say: Like all their other detergents, Purex Natural Elements Tropical Splash does an excellent job of getting laundry clean. I give high ratings to the scent; it does seem to smell more natural, and therefore nicer, than other detergent varieties... especially since there's coconut, one of my fave scents, in there. The fact that it's better for sensitive skin is a bonus; I know people who need that from the products they use, so I can recommend this to them because I've tested it myself... and Purex prices get top marks from me.

One of you can try it for FREE!! Send me an email telling me why you'd like to try a greener detergent, and I'll pick a winner this weekend.
