Review & Giveaway: Purex Crystals & Jockey

Life's complicated, and um, we have a lot of laundry. When I was younger, with no children, and a good bit more leisure time, I was very meticulous about doing the laundry just so, even hand washing things, when necessary. (Shudder.)

These days, clothing with complicated laundering instructions either don't get purchased, or at any rate, don't get worn much. Workout clothing is tough.  Most of the modern moisture wicking fabrics aren't recommend for use with fabric softeners, since the oil content inhibits the absorbency. I prefer to just throw the workout clothes in with the regular laundry, (instead of making even more loads.) If you're in the same boat, read on.



I was recently sent a Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra, and a bottle of Purex Crystals fabric softener to review. What do they have in common? Well, namely this: You can use them together. Since the Purex Crystals do not contain oil, they won't inhibit the wicking ability of the bra.

The sports bra has several neat features, including a little key pocket, breathable mesh panels and moisture wicking fabric, and it's machine washable and dryable. (Is dryable a word? Whatever.) I liked the style and fit, with one caveat. It seemed to run a bit small. They're sized S-M-L-XL. I ordered the size I'd normally wear, (S,) and although I am able to wear it, it's pretty snug. One size larger would have probably been better. The fit is sleek and supportive. I'm a long time Jockey fan.

I was sent the Tropical Splash scented crystals, and I have to say, they're my favorite fragrance yet. Better still, my local Target has finally started carrying them, so I can buy some more.
