Fabric Softener Performance Fabric

Why You Shouldn’t Use Fabric Softener On Your Performance Garments

Fabric softeners primarily come in two forms: liquid, or dryer sheets. Softeners are very popular to use when washing your clothes, eliminating static, softening fabric fibers, and even adding a lovely floral scent. However, you’ll definitely want to think twice before using fabric softener with your athletic clothes, lab coat, scrubs, or other performance fabrics.

When it comes to these performance fabrics, the fabric softener actually does more damage than good. Performance fabrics are made with technological features built in, such as moisture wicking or stain resistant – the problem with fabric softener is that it leaves a coating on the fibers of the fabric, so over time those technological features will fade.

This all has to do with the process by which fabric softener actually softens your clothes and linens. Fabric softener releases a sort of waxy substance onto your clothing – this is how it softens and prevents static cling. However, this is what makes your performance fabrics, well, not perform so well after you wash them with fabric softener. The difference may not be noticeable after the first wash, but it will build up over time.

The same principle applies to washing your towels or any micro-fiber fabrics. As a matter of fact, it is recommended in general that you not use heat to dry micro-fiber as it does a lot of damage to the fibers, making them lose all their moisture-wicking properties.

The moral of the story? Don’t use fabric softener with any fabric that has technological features!

What Does Bacteriostatic Lab Coat Fabric Mean?

The medical apparel industry is awash in a sea of performance fabrics, each one touting different technological features and benefits for the wearer. Some of the terminology can be a bit confusing, so we’re here to break it down for you.

Medelita lab coats are made of a proprietary performance lab coat fabric called M3. This fabric is loaded with technological features that are embedded into the fibers of the fabric itself, meaning these features won’t wash out when you launder your garment. Among the many features that make this fabric amazing, bacteriostatic is one feature that we can explain to you.

Bacteriostatic Performance Fabric

Quite simply, throughout the day you and every other person on the planet are constantly shedding skin cells. These dead skin cells most often get trapped in the fabric of whatever your wearing, along with any bacteria that’s going along for the ride. By creating a surface that is nearly impossible for dead skin cells to cling to, bacteriostatic fabric prevents odors from trapping in the garment & virtually neutralizes order-causing bacteria.

So what does this mean for you? Well, it means that you can wear your lab coat freely without fear of lingering body odor. So put on that white coat and show off your professional look!

Estie M3 Classic Fit Lab Coat

“This coat has a nice weight, doesn’t wrinkle, and looks clean-cut and attractive. I’ve had many compliments while wearing it…as well as a few envious looks. 🙂 Wish more hospitals were investing in quality coats and medical wear like this one.”

-Kanani T.


“This is – hands down – the most beautiful lab coat I have ever owned (and I have owned plenty!) Not only does it fit perfectly, but the quality of the material is unrivaled. I work at a major hospital (UCLA) and people stop me at least once a day when I wear this coat to ask where I got it from. It does not feel stifflike most lab coats and is form-fitting to flatter the figure. I had no idea what to expect when I received this product in the mail. To say I am pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I will *never* go back!”

-Misty R.


“After having so many ill-fitting choices during medical school and residency, it is so refreshing to have one that feels like it was made for me. Not only stylish, but it is also durable – the stain resistance factor allows longer wear and maintains its character far longer than a regular lab coat. I absolutely love it!”

-Lauren H.


Laennec M3 Classic Fit Lab Coat



“I judge my white coats based on five primary factors: Style/Fit, Comfort, Ease of Cleaning, Pockets, and Durability. The style of this white coat is impeccable. The notched lapel stays steady and in place,making you look sharp no matter how long you’ve been in the hospital. The fit is basically just like a Brooks Brothers’ blazer. Immediately upon wearing it there is a feeling of luxury. Soft, almost plush, andwarm but at the same time cooling. The material is shockingly resistant to becoming damp, in fact water just beads and runs right off it. For the cleaning you’d think with as nice as it is you’d have to dry clean, but no just throw it in the washer and it comes out great. Finally, the pockets are numerouswith dividers within for easy cell phone isolation and there are even side vents for access to pants pockets. I’ve only had the coat for a short time so I can’t comment on durability, but its impressed me enough that all I can hope is it lasts forever.”

-John L.


“The fit is great! M3 fabric is amazing! Very stain and water repellant. By far the best white coat I have ever worn. Worth the price.”

-Daniel M.


“I love the coat. Its very comfortable and fit. I live in Puerto Rico and the coat protects you from the coldof the hospital, but cool enough so it doesn’t suffocate you when going outside. Definitely buying another when the time is right.”

-Edgardo B.


M3 Vera G. Slim Fit Lab Coat

“I wear scrubs at work and they tend to be boxy and shapeless. I love that I can put this lab coat on over my scrubs and instantly look a little more tailored. I love the collar, shape, and fabric. It is the perfect lab coat and I intend to stock up in case they decide to stop producing it.”

-Heather K.


“I have literally every long coat that Medelita makes for women. The Vera G. is a combination of the best from every other lab coat. It is sleek, with a PERFECT collar that doesn’t get bunched up and my stethoscope doesn’t get caught on. The M3 fabric is sturdy but light and a nice bright white. HANDS DOWN my most favorite coat.”

-Tiffany S

“Extremely high quality, easily washable, and stains are easily removed. Love these coats and scrubs.”

-Marquand P.


“Just awesome – nicely fitting, I feel motivated and inspired when I wear this coat!”

-Pedram J.


“Upon opening the package, I already felt the quality when I first touched the fabric. It was unlike any other lab coats I’ve had in my medical career. It consistently stood out and has garnered me compliments from nurses, colleagues, and attendings. This is definitely my new go-to brand for lab coats. Thank you Medelita!”

-Martin A.
