Between my boyfriend (Tim) and I, we go through a lot of laundry. Most of it tends to be athletic gear (he plays soccer; I practice yoga). We love our quality workout pieces, so we wear the same ones frequently. The downfall of this? Our clothes end up smelling pretty bad. Regardless of how much laundry detergent we use, nothing seems to do the trick.
Then we found WIN Detergent, and everything started smelling so fresh and so clean!
Disclosure: I received 2 free bottles of WIN Detergent as part of my #sweatpink ambassadorship with Fit Approach. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own. Images and some text are used with the permission of WIN.
What’s different about WIN?
WIN Detergent is designed to remove sweat, oil, and odors from technical athletic/sports apparel. It’s perfect for the smelly athletic gear that’s always piling up in our laundry basket! It comes in the regular formula (WIN Detergent Blue 32oz NEW – affiliate), plus a dye-free, fragrance free GREEN version. WIN Detergent Green 32oz NEW (affiliate) is formulated to meet the standards for Design for the Environment certification by the EPA. It also meets the Yellow Rating on the Whole Foods Eco-Scale (certification pending). The formula is hypoallergenic and designed for users with sensitive skin and noses. Each formula comes in a 32 oz bottle for $10.95 USD.
I used the detergent specifically on my athletic clothes to see if I could notice the difference. I totally could! Within one wash, Tim’s soccer jerseys were no longer giving off that disgusting odor we all know about. My Athleta capris felt smoother and smelled awesome! The next time I did laundry, I used the WIN detergent on EVERYTHING; I wanted to see if it would help other clothes, too. The answer is YEP! Even using the GREEN detergent (free of fragrances and dyes), there was a difference in the smell of my clothes. It wasn’t a masking smell; it was a clean smell. Does that make sense?
I’m incredibly pleased with WIN Detergent!
