Giveaway: Purex Crystals and Jockey Sports Bra
Last year Purex came out with their innovative Purex Crystals fabric softener which is 92% natural and, unlike regular fabric softeners, is not oil based. Traditional oil based fabric softeners are not recommended for athletic wear because the oil content hinders the moisture wicking ability of the athletic wear. But, because Purex Crystals do not contain oil they can safely be used on all atheletic wear clothing and not hinder the moisture wicking ability at all.
I’ve used the Purex Crystals quite a bit since they were introduced last spring and have mostly liked them. In the past I’ve had issues with splotches of fabric softener appearing on my clothes after they were washed and let me tell you, it’s an oily, difficult thing to get rid of. But since the Purex Crystals is in a crystal form and is not oil based, that has not been an issue at all!
I also really like that Purex Crystals are not in liquid form. Do you ever get tired of how liquid fabric softener gunks up in the spot where you add it to your washing machine? I do! But with Purex Crystals you have none of that because not only is it not a liquid fabric softener, you don’t even use the fabric softener dispenser but add it directly to your load of laundry. So it’s a win-win situation in my books!
The one thing I am not crazy about is the strong scent. The scents smell great but, in my opinion, are a bit overpowering. However I’ve found a solution. I simply cut the amount of Purex Crystals that I add to my laundry in half. My clothing is still nice and soft, has a mild scent to it and to top it off, I save money because my bottle will last twice as long!
Purex and Jockey have teamed up to give away one bottle of Purex Crystals and one Jockey Tech Terry sports bra to one of my readers so that you can see for yourself how awesome the Purex Crystals are.
