There is no denying it, high performance fabrics are high maintenance. Gear with antimicrobial, moisture wicking and UPF properties are fine crafted, just like you are, and they require delicate care to maintain peak performance. Washing workout clothes into a regular laundry load will break down performance and clog moisture wicking fibers faster than your personal best minute mile.
THE DIRTY ON SMELLY LAUNDRY AND GEAR
"Odor in workout clothing is most commonly caused by a buildup of sweat and bacteria from your body," explains Mary Zeitler, lead consumer scientist at the Whirlpool Corporation Institute of Home Science.
The very moisture wicking features that keep you dry during an intense sweat session also make it harder for sudsy laundry water and conventional detergent to penetrate fabric and pull out sweat and bacteria.
Regular laundry detergents are designed to eliminate stains- coffee, grass, wine, etc- effectively by buffing the surface of fabric fibers. By definition, this it also breaks down anitbacterial and UPF coatings on gear. Residue from stain removers and fabric softeners clogs moisture wicking fibers leaving your gera (basically a second skin) stinky and full of mold and mildew.
No Sweat detergent is a specialty sport wash made with proprietary enzyme technology. Unlike the stain removers in regular laundry detergent enzymes only like oil based solubles- sweat, urine and so on. Just like digestive enzymes in your stomach breakdown food and without harming stomach lining, our enzyme formula dissolves odor causing sweat and grime without damaging fabric fibers.
WELCOME TO THE 3RD LOAD
Here is the definitive guide to keeping sportswear breathing and wicking sweat just like a second skin.
Air dry your clothes, or use the lowest heat setting on your dryer. Its good for the environment & better for the elasticity and fit of your gear. Since performance fabrics are designed to wick sweat they air dry fast too.
