Does anyone know where we can get these in UK please?

The people from USA are always saying how good they are for the self service laundries on board, someone even suggested cutting into 4 and using the small bits for hand washing , also leaving a piece in suitcases to keep them smelling sweet.

I can find sellers to send them to UK, but I refuse to pay the exorbitant postal charges

Can't help you with the shipping problem.

Maybe an American on your next rollcall can get a package for you. I've done the same with cat treats.

There is a product called Dizolve I have never seen them in the shops but I believe that you can get them online. We got a free sample from somewhere but haven't used them as yet as we still have Purex ones bought on a US trip last year

Thank Iain, I found some Dizolve on ebay, but it´s only for washing not drying.

Of no help I know, but my sister-in-law brought some Purex back from the States for me after I'd seen mention of it here and it's brilliant. Hope you can get some or, as has been suggested, maybe someone will bring a packet over for you.

Yes but approx £15 for product and another £15 for delivery, as I said in the beginning exorbitant postage.. and that´s to UK address!

Sandy, have you contacted the company who makes them through their website to see if they can help ?

The reason I ask that is because when I went to their site..I noticed it can be changed from English to Spanish and that made me wonder if they have a Spanish side to their business.

Ok now I am confused ...you mentioned postage to UK address but your sig says Sandy in Spain

Quite often American sites use Spanish as their 2nd language. The USA/Canada is an arm of a German firm called Henkel (I believe) But I can´t find any suppliers in Spain. I use a UK address as getting things sent to Spain is usually even more expensive than getting sent to UK

Thanks Sandy for the explanation.

I notice they have them on Ebay...some sellers appear to have free shipping...and some have them quite cheap but some sellers have them way way high prices

I am going to have to have a look for these when I go across the pond in November

May I suggest 'Laundry paper' from Lakeland? 30 sheets for £3.29. Will be using them on our next cruise!
The laundry paper are great for hand wash.

The Purex 3-1 is for the washer and dryer.

Those are also good for hand washing not for machines.

The Purex sheets look like a cross between paper towels and dryer (softener) sheets. They are much larger than those. Around 9inches x 6 inches. (I'll let you do the metric conversion)

I have used things similar to the above. They are very low sudsing and do get the dirt out.

We came back from Orlando at the weekend and I searched high and low for the Purex 3 in 1 sheets as they as fantastic.
Sadly nowhere to be found anymore. I was told in Publix that they had been discontinued earlier in the year.
I was gutted as I know there is nothing else like that and they are ideal for holiday washing

There were some on ebay.co.uk the other day and Lakeland do something similar, but their washer sheets only, not drier
