Frequently Asked Questions

How much NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent should I use per load? Half a capful of the 32-ounce bottle will handle an average load. Pre-soak super funky items in a basin with water and a splash of detergent for 5–10 minutes before putting them in the washing machine. If you’re using your machine’s pre-programmed soak cycle, add an ounce of detergent for a regular load and 2 ounces for a heavy load. Measurements are for front-load, HE washers.

Is NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent meant for use on its own or as an addition to regular laundry detergent? Both. No Sweat specifically targets and eliminates odors, not stains. When washing items that are soiled with things like mud and grass, it’s a good idea to use No Sweat with your regular laundry detergent. If your wash is just sweaty and funky, go ahead and use No Sweat with nothing else. It’ll do its thing! 

Can I use NO SWEAT products in top-loading washers? Yes! No Sweat HE detergent works in top-loading washers just fine. However, because top-load machines are less efficient than front-load HE washers, they use a lot more water, which dilutes all detergents. This means that top-loaders require more detergent. We recommend using 1.5 times the instructed amount.

Can I use NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent to hand-wash my clothes? Absolutely. You can use our detergent to hand-wash clothes at home or on the road. Simply soak your items for 5–10 minutes to get rid of grime and odor. Clean your gear on the go with our travel-size bottle (and pack less!).

Is NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent safe for HE machines? Our sports wash detergent is specifically designed for use in HE machines, and a little goes a long way! We recommend using an ounce of detergent for regular loads and 2 ounces for large loads. Top-loading washers require 1.5 times those amounts (1.5 ounces or 3 ounces).

Does NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent remove mold spores and mildew smells? It does! Our proprietary blend of enzymes and gentle, eco-friendly surfactants get to the root of what makes fabric stink: foul-smelling biological substances. Like a magnet, No Sweat’s powerful bio-based enzymes lift oil, bacteria and mold directly from fabric fibers. Alone or combined with another product, our wash works the same. No harsh chemicals, no artificial perfumes. Just pure freshness, down the core.

Does NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent contain UV brighteners? No.

Do NO SWEAT products sanitize my clothes? Is it antibacterial and antifungal? No Sweat is specifically designed to deep clean (or sanitize) your clothes. Our proprietary enzyme formula eliminates odor caused by bacteria and fungus. Odor develops in clothing, sports pads and other gear when things like sweat and creams get stuck in fabric fibers. They thrive in the damp environment. Our active enzymes dissolve the embedded oil-based grim and eliminate odor caused by bacteria and fungus.

Are NO SWEAT PRODUCTS safe to use on sports gear (hockey gear, pads, gloves, etc.)? Yes! No Sweat works its magic on gear too. For items that can be soaked, fill a basin with water, add 2 ounces of detergent and let them sit for 15–20 minutes. Remove from water and air dry. For items that should not be exposed to water (for instance, gear with leather trim) please check out our No Sweat Spray.

Where can I find a list of ingredients? You’ll find a full list of ingredients on the back label. Our detergents contain purified water, anionic surfactant, nonionic surfactant, enzymes, freshening chloride and fragrance (except for our fragrance-free formula).

Can I use NO SWEAT products on all fabrics? Yes. The enzymes in our detergent work really well on all fabrics, including cotton, linen, denim and fine knits. Just be sure to check the cleaning instructions on the item’s label, and wash delicate fabrics like merino wool and cashmere in cool water on a delicate cycle—or hand wash!

Will NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent work on white and dark loads? Yes! While No Sweat is tough on grime and odor, it’s gentle on fabrics. Most conventional detergents “buff”’ the surface of garments in an effort to eliminate stains. Since No Sweat specifically targets odors, the enzymes have no impact on fabric color, and our other surfactants are as gentle as possible. As a result, colors stay bright.

Does NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent work in cold water?Absolutely. Wash temperature has no bearing on the efficacy of our active enzymes. There’s no need to “sterilize” your wash in super hot water, which sucks precious energy.  

I have oily skin, and after a while my towels stink. Will NO SWEAT products help? No Sweat does a fantastic job at removing all bodily scents and secretions. Oil gets caught in fabric fibers and feeds bacteria. The enzymes ‘eat’ that bacteria, which eliminates the smell.  

How many loads can I do with one bottle of NO SWEAT Sports Wash Detergent? The 32-ounce bottle contains enough detergent for up to 32 regular loads.

Do NO SWEAT products contain toxic chemicals, sulfates or bleach? Nope. We don’t use toxic chemicals, chlorines, optical brighteners, sulfates or bleaches in any of our formulas.
