Laundry help on the go

Don’t know how to deal with that stain? There’s an app for that.

You’ll never again be caught with a stain you don’t know how to handle with the new Laundry Help app from Purex. This free app for your iPhone or Blackberry puts the laundry advice you need right at your fingertips with its four helpful features.

Stain guide

The stain guide feature gives you the best tips to handle every stain you can imagine. Set the wheels with your stain and fabric, and the app will give you a stain-fighting solution designed just for your problem.

Spilled ketchup on your new blouse? Do you have a kid that specializes in grass stains? Say goodbye to treating your stains by trial and error. Just enter your stain and fabric into the app and you’ll instantly know how to handle it.
