PRO WASH activewear detergent Review and Giveaway


I recently had the chance to use PRO Wash™ activewear detergent. This product claims to get rid of the worst smells from gym clothes. I have used products that claim this before and I can honestly say that this product was the best I have ever used. The other products worked somewhat, but PRO Wash™ actually left my technical gear smelling fresh and not just partly fresh—that makes since to people that use Dri-Fit and other wicking clothes to exercise in.
~24 Fl. Oz. cleans 24 loads
~Removes embedded odors from wicking fabrics better than ordinary detergent
~Especially designed for Nike Dri-FIT®, Under Armour®, and Columbia ~Sportswear® active wear
~Rinses Clean
~Prevents fading
~For top loading, front load, high efficiency washers and hand washing
~The pouch uses 83% less plastic than a rigid PET bottle

I really like the fact that this product is made for technical gear. I know that my clothes will last longer and that the sweat wicking ability will not diminish because I am not washing the garments correctly. These items are not cheap, so it’s good to know that they will last and I will get my money’s worth. Pro Wash™ has a very fresh scent and I believe it actually gets the sweat smell out of my clothes and not just cover it up. I know that after washing some of my gear after running in hot weather or teaching a particularly sweaty Spin class that the clothes were “clean”, but the other detergents just did not leave a fresh scent that stayed. This one does! I am grateful for finding this product and will only use this one for now on. I highly recommend it.

ProWash™ Activewear Detergent is the only sport detergent brand that gives a 100% Guarantee. This impresses me, if they have that much confidence in their product, I can assume it does what they say it does.

Renee G said...

I found out that Independent laboratory tests show that ProWash™ kills odors better than your ordinary detergent on day wear and your activewear garments. Since I have two active boys, we could really use the finest odor remover around.
