One of my favorite things from Trader Joe’s is their Bacon Ends & Pieces. At about $3 per pound, you get high quality bacon. It’s a steal if you are only needing bacon bits and pieces. There are no uniform slices, just leftovers…but it works!
Tonight for dinner…chicken burgers with bacon crumbles, gorgonzola cheese, and avocado slices.

Purex Crystals – helps remove stink from clothing!
I live with a very active family. My husband is a cyclist, strength coach, and workout fanatic. My son and daughter both play sports. I own a gym. We produce A LOT of funky, smelly clothes. Sometimes doing the laundry makes me gag. Gross.I’ve tried a lot of different methods for removing the funk. I’ve soaked clothes in baking soda, but that doesn’t do much, and I have to plan soak time. I’ve used Febreeze Sport, but that requires remembering to spray each piece of funky clothing thoroughly before I put it into the washing machine. And, using fabric softener isn’t recommended for athletic clothing, plus it sometimes leaves a greasy residue or stains on the clothing.
A few months ago, my sister introduced me to Purex Crystals. A new product that not only smells good, but also softens the water & helps get rid of the stink! All you do is toss a capful into the washing machine before adding the clothes. Then, add soap and wash as you normally would. This is safe for workout clothes and front-loading machines. It also works with towels that might get funky and it doesn’t affect the absorbency of the towels like regular fabric softener does.
What are your tricks for removing the funk and smell from your workout gear?
