I bought these thinking they would be the best thing since sliced bread.
They are.......kind of.....

Here's the pro's.
The box is relatively inexpensive, good bang for the buck.
One little sheet produces quite a bit of suds so I know the clothes are getting clean.
The box is small and light and are a million times better than dragging home the big heavy liquid variety.

The cons?
Only one I can think of so far, I have a light blue, wrinkle free dress shirt that is poly/rayon and after washing three times there were multiple dark stains on the shirt.
I have no idea what is causing this as it isn't happening to any of my other dress shirts that are the same blend.
Then again, those shirts are a lot darker in color and I may not be seeing the stains.
I ended up throwing the shirt away, it was old and not in the best shape anyway.
That's the only reason I didn't give this five stars.
REVIEW UPDATE...............
I knocked this review down to one star.
All five of my dress shirts have been stained by this product.
I will NOT be buying this again,
In short,
AAAAAAAAAVOID!!!

Another review update.
All the shirts that were stained, the stains came out when I rewashed them using another detergent.
What a pain.
I still say to avoid this product.

I was so excited to try these sheets after seeing the first commercial. What a great idea! After about 10 loads of laundry I was raving to friends and family members about these great 3 in 1 sheets. In less than a week my washing machine was not draining properly. I have a new front loading he washer, which these sheets are labeled safe for. I had a plumber come out and snake my line. This did not solve the problem. I then had to have a washing machine repair man come out to look at my washer. For some reason or another 3 of these sheets were sucked into the pump of my washer. This never should have happened. These "great" 3 in sheets ended up costing me over $350 in repair bills. I contacted the Purex with no resolve. Please be careful with these sheets! I learned the hard way.

I LOVE these because I spend a lot of time traveling, and these sheets are perfect when you have to do laundry on the road. I was worried my clothes wouldn't get as clean, but I think it actually does a great job cleaning. The fragrance from the dryer sheet is very light.

Only problem is on some loads I end up with small waxy/oily stains on my clothes. I think this happens in the dryer, but I am not sure. And the stains do not go away the next time I wash the clothes. Hopefully they can fix this problem, if they do -- it will be perfect!!!

Very nice to replace those heavy bottles of laundry detergent.

Update: I seem to have fixed the spotting problem by tearing off the end of the sheet with some residual blue stuff before I put the sheet in the dryer. Is the remaining blue stuff detergent?

I have so many issues with this product that I became driven to do enough experiments and research to understand the issue. I reported the issues to Purex/Henkel, but the phone rep was rude and not helpful at all and could care less...

The mixed review of this product is attributed to different washer type.

This product works best in top-loading non-HE washers where there is sufficient water to dissolve and dilute the detergent quickly. I found out most of issues are related to HE washers, particular front-loading. Because HE wash disspense very little water, it's harder for the detergent to dissolve and leave the sheet. The spotting issue is caused by the same reason, where the wet/semi-dissolved sheet is in direct contact with fabric and has very little to no water separation. I have had sheets that gone through wash/dry cycles but still have large visible patch of blue detergent still on the sheets when using HE washers. Needless to say, the load comes out not very clean at all. It performs even worse than Purex liqiuid, which is pretty bottom of the barrel based on Consumer Report's studies and my own experience. However, the problem doesn't exist on my parent's older non-HE washer in which the sheet and laundry are full immersed in water.

Purex/Henkel dropped the ball on the R&D and marketing processes of this product. They should not have labelled this product for HE washer use considering the performance is so hit and miss and may even cause spotting on the fabric.

Was totally thrilled with this new product...so easy, space saving, etc. All was right with the world until I washed a set of dark sheets. When putting them back on the bed, I noticed that there were oily spots all over them. Now how do you get oil stains on sheets???!! Now whenever I wash a load of clothes there's always these oily spots on at least one of them. So many clothes have been ruined before I realized what the problem was. I think Purex should come out and make a statement about "what's wrong with this product" and do a recall with reimbursement or replacement product. Going to use Tide on all my laundry from now on which I hate to do as it's so expensive, but hopefully, it'll get these spots out..otherwise clothes are in the garbage as I would not even give them to charity.
