Does anyone know why polyester ski wear says "NO FABRIC SOFTENER"? I do not see this instruction on other synthetic garments.

Chemical Reactions. You know how long underwear can retain odors (chemicals from the body). Fabric softener will be retained in the underwear and it can cause premature wear by potentially breaking down the petrochemicals used in the underwear. Another problem is that all those extra chemicals can cause some nasty irritation on people's skin. I've seen it happen. You should find a mild detergent that can be easily rinsed out (and maybe do an extra rinse to get ALL the detergent out.
