As much as I would love laundry to disappear from my life, it is one of the tasks that is in my to-do list. And I'm always behind, but I'll save that discussion for another day.
Obviously as a runner, I have a lot of sweat filled laundry to do, even more so in the winter. I haven't ever tried a sports-specific laundry soap but recently I took a winter jacket out of the closet, got about 2 minutes into my run and was so disgusted by how it smelled - like sweat had been baked into it.
Enter Sweat X.
This laundry detergent is specially formulated that is uniquely designed to remove "embedded foul odors" from fabrics. It is safe to use in High Efficiency (HE) machines, it is non-toxic and biodegradable. The 45 oz bottle covers 45 loads of laundry - a little goes a long way. The detergent removes odors from clothes instead of masking them with a fragrance. After I wash my clothes with this, they just smell like clean clothes - no perfumes, heavy fragrances, etc. And that gross running jacket? NO MORE SMELL!
My favorite feature of the laundry detergent is that independent testing has shown that it has "no dermal impact" aka it is is safe for sensitive skin, which my kids and I both have.
I also tried this out with my kids snow pants and winter jackets which smelled like wet dog. YAY! It worked.
In addition to the bottle of laundry detergent, I was also sent the Odor Eliminator Spray.
The spray is designed to remove odors from sporting equipment that cannot be washed in the washing machine - think football pads, hockey pads, RUNNING SHOES!!! I tackled my whole closet full of running shoes with a vengeance and based on the success found there, next hit up my kids snow boots. What is it about snow gear that absolutely attracts the grossest smells?!!? I sprayed the boots and shoes, let them dry overnight and then took a big whiff the next morning. Nothing. Meaning - no smell, no overpowering fragrance. Just neutral air.
I held back from spraying my stinky kids with the stuff. :)
My fellow BibRave Pros had some other great uses for this spray - The seats in your cars, dog beds, and furniture.
Overall, I have been Xtremely pleased with these Sweat X products. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself there!)
