Product Review - Win Detergent - as told by: Stinky McStinkerson :o)
And until last Summer and now this Summer I never could understand why we couldnt keep this in stock at the store; it would fly off the shelves when we would get it in..I washed my running stuff with normal detergent...and like I said recently I had to start rethinking this...
Let me explain. This Summer even though I wash my running clothes ... its just not doing the job. When I would wear a pair of shorts especially or even a top, within a mile or so of running I could 'smell' not a good smell at all. Horrible.
So horrible that I have taken to leaving them outside till they would dry and then spray Febreze on them to put them in the dirty clothes hamper. To me my house smelled like a gym locker.
The theory is that with all the new technology of wicking sweat and gunk from your body as you run, it just builds up over time into the wicking fabric, and ordinary detergent just doesn't get the job done. After so long hey its just gonna smell bad people no matter what :o) Especially as your body even remotely starts to heat up and of course, sweat again.
Now I know that Tide has come out with a product aimed at athletes but every single review I have read on it is BAD. The smell is overpowering and makes most people nauseous whenever they start to run and sweat.
So last weekend I bought Win at Luke's and at 40% discount (it runs about $7 a bottle w/ no dis), well the price is ok :o) since its much more expensive but then again you are to only wash your athletic apparel in it. Its not a substitute for your regular clothes and linens.
This morning on my run, I was sweating like crazy within the first mile. Its that bad out there. And by the end of the 2nd mile I was drenched.
NO STINKY STINK WHATSOEVER.
Once I finished running and went inside and undressed...I did what I had to do. Put the shorts up to my face and took a deep breath in.
NO STINKY STINK WHATSOEVER!!!!
OMG is it really possible???
I do believe Win has made a believer out of me!!!
