Friends, let me tell you – this absolutely stinks. Don’t be confused though, this review doesn’t stink – it’s the laundry I’m doing right now!
Winter, especially in Ohio, makes life interesting if one is a runner. It’s an on-going guessing game as to how cold it will be or if it will snow/sleet/rain/etc. I, for one, do not own a treadmill – therefore, my miles take place outside no matter what. The one constant, however, is the art of the layer. ALL THE LAYERS. With all those layers comes a certain funk after a good run, the result of course of all the sweat having really nowhere to go.
Thankfully, my Sweat X Sport arrived just as I began ramping up my training coming into 2018. The funk and sweat now have a place to go – AWAY!
Sweat X Sport is specially formulated to remove foul odors and eliminates the deep down funk that often gets trapped in running gear and other activewear. This is a definite plus as of late – a pregnant wife with a nose like a bloodhound does NOT appreciate the funky smelling gear I come home in/with. Sweat X Sport is designed to knock out difficult stains, such as grass, dirt, clay, mud, and blood. Worried about the various fabric types you own? No sweat (pun intended) – Sweat X is safe for ALL fabrics.
A little bonus with this test was the bottle of Sweat X Sport Odor Eliminator spray I was sent as well. Why? Well, I’m not fond of the idea of putting my 150$ running shoes in the washer/dryer and watching them fall apart, BUT they do get quite funky as time goes on. A couple of shots of spray on my shoes kicks that funk nasty foot smell to the curb.
Remember that load of laundry I mentioned above? It’s done now and it smells SOOOOO much better – almost as if I hadn’t gone for Saturday’s long run OR left it to air-out in the garage for 2 whole days. My gear smells fresh and ready to go. I would not be embarrassed to wear any of this particular gear out in public because it looks good and it smells good – all of which makes me FEEL good.
In all honesty, I’ve seen this stuff in my local running store(s) for years, but I’ve never been one to give it a go. In fact, I thought it was gimmicky. I was VERY wrong and am very glad I got selected to give Sweat X a try. Sweat X Sport Laundry Detergent does the job I need it to do – de-funk de stuff – and it does it very well.
