I have a (semi-) finite number of clothes that I wear to run indoors, to run outdoors, to wear to spin class, and on the treadmill. The minute I put them on, it starts. The stink is so foul you can practically eat it with a fork.
So I have to wash them (and I usually—don't judge—do) every night. Which is fun without a washer in the condo. But no matter how many volcanoes of baking soda and white vinegar I pour over my clothes while washing (a tip given to me by a concerned friend), the outcome is always: all stink, all the time.
So it was with great delight that I replied with a hearty "hell yes" when the ProWash peeps asked if I wanted to review their product. Besides, all the cool kids had already reviewed it.
I had already tried a sample of ProWash, given out as schwag at some race this summer—and I had liked what I didn't smell.
From the ProWash site:
ProWash™ is designed to target perspiration and odor molecules (ewww) in the wicking of the garment which ordinary detergents cover with perfume. This innovation actually removes odor molecules and detergent residues left by ordinary detergents.
I got this lovely package in the mail:
with a bonus "microfiber gym towel" in its own little carrying case! Score #1.
ProWash comes in a fancy soft plastic-y pouch, with a spout on the side and a measuring spoon that slips over the spout. How cute is that?? Well it's cute, but is it GREEN?
As a company we are concerned with the earth, its resources and the health of its inhabitants.Score #2.
Stand up Pouches have 9X less effect on the earth than plastic bottles:
# 9X less warehouse space required
# 9X less landfill space consumed
# 9X less fuel consumption
# 9X less consumption of wood for pallets and paper for corrugate
# Pouches use only 40% of the plastic of the same size rigid bottle

And, like many of my favorite stores, it has an iron-clad money-back guarantee:
ProWash™ Activewear Detergent is the only sport detergent brand that gives a 100% Guarantee! If you are not completely satisfied, send the retail package and your cash register receipt for a replacement or refund.Nothing to lose!
But does it work?
After several trials, I can truthfully say (and you should feel free to join me): Thank God Almighty, the stink is gone!
I love this stuff, and not just because they gave it to me. I want to wash everything in the house with it. It's a miracle!
Go, stimulate the economy. $26.64 for three 24-oz pouches at Amazon. It's not cheap, but you can prolong its use by mixing it with regular detergent, although I haven't tried that.
And if ProWash would like me to review it again, they know where to find me. I also like chocolates, New Balance shoes, and am mad crazy to visit England. Where I'd be very happy to introduce ProWash.
If you hate it you can always return it.
