We love the way we feel after working up a sweat at the gym. What we don’t love is the way our sweat-drenched workout gear smells after spending a day in our gym bags. That’s why we use The Laundress® Sport Detergent, specifically formulated to fight odor and bacteria in synthetic clothing. The crisp citrus scent will leave your stuff smelling great so you can focus on what’s really important: your next workout.
My sports clothes get a little funky - imagine a chamois after 4hrs in the saddle and you'll get my drift. I've used other technical-fabric specific detergents before, and I have liked them all. But none smells as amazing as this stuff. Highly recommended.5
I have a front loader and found that the detergent was still in the detergent bin after I washed my clothing. I followed the directions as they were written on the bottle. Not sure what happened. I had to thin the detergent with water when I re-ran the washing machine. That seemed to do the trick. My clothes were not overpowered with the detergent's fragrance- which is nice as I hate having smelly clothing even if the smell is pleasant. If I can figure out how to make this detergent work in my washing machine I will continue to use it.3
Sniffing from the bottle, the product has a strong floral fragrance (not unpleasant, but maybe not what a man would want to smell like?). Four capfuls required in a HE washer, and the goopy consistency makes it difficult to measure. When the clothes were wet I could still smell the floral fragrance, but it dissipated when the clothes were dry. Not sure if it took the deep stink out of my synthetic clothes in just one wash, but it seems to work ok so far in terms of getting the clothes clean. I'll keep using it and see - not sure if I'd buy again (expensive compared to Tide) but it made doing laundry a bit of a treat, which is nice.3
I have complained for sooo long about how I can never really get the gross work-out smell out of my moisture wicking technical fabrics. Nothing would do it...and this does---it doesn't just cover up the stink with fragrance either. The light scent is pleasant too though.
My husband wears a lot of the workout shirts that really smell awful after a sweaty session at the gym. We are talking GROSS. I soaked a few of the shirts in the sink with this before washing in the machine. It is something I will never go without from now on. It cleans the odor and grossness right out of the fabric. As always, DO NOT put that type of fabric in the dryer. Air drying is best. So, so glad that birchbox carries The Laundress products!! They are all amazing.5
I've never found ANY clothing detergent to remove 'hockey smell.' I can't even explain it, you have to be a hockey family to understand. This removes the smell - completely. I'm sold and will use it for life.5
My synthetic athletic wear did smell better (citrus scent) than using regular detergent. The detergent did not discolor my clothes and used less than recommended. Plus, it worked great to remove a stubborn stain on my daughters stroller cover (synthetic fiber). Will purchase again!5
This detergent really works to get out any funky smells in my workout clothes. What is even more impressive, is that it gets smells out of my husband's clothes that we have not been able to remove before! Thank goodness!5
I love everything about this detergent. Silky smooth and soft, it is gentle with a refreshing scent; however, even though it is gentle, it gets after those sweaty clothes. I WILL USE THIS AND ONLY THIS FOR MY LULULEMON!! GLORIOUS!!!5
My workout stuff never seems to NOT smell sweaty. Yuck. This detergent is amazing, if you can get past the price. Honestly, I will continue to purchase this as long as BB carries it.5
