2Toms Stink Free Sports Detergent versus Casa de Chubby's stankiest clothing.
My personal belief was that these "sports detergents" were nothing more than a marketing scheme and nice smelling soap. I was not going to make this challenge easy for them. I pulled out the big guns including.....3 sets of sweaty kid hockey gear that missed a few washings (on purpose....just for this challenge). There is nothing that compares to hockey stank. Even my sweet little Diva makes me gag when she is done playing.
The 2 wash cycles included:
- 3 pairs of hockey socks
- 3 shock doctors (polite speak for nut cups and pelvic protector)
- 3 pairs of Under Armor pants
- 3 kid sized tech shirts
- 3 practice jerseys
- 2 regular jerseys
- 2 neck guards
- 3 hockey skate blade towels that have never been washed
- 1 pair of running tights
- 1 technical race t-shirt
- 1 fleece jacket
- 2 sweaty knit hats
- 2 pairs of boys wind pants
- 4 pairs of sweaty socks
- 3 pairs of under britches
- 2 "clean" tech shirts that stilled smelled like my last workout
- a yoga towel (from hot yoga)
- yoga pants
- yoga tank
- other odds and ends
Everything passed the sniff test (well, I didn't sniff the nut cups or the undies because that is just weird). But, everything smelled fresh and clean. Even the technical clothes that were "stinky clean" when I put them in came out smelling great. My daughter's white hockey (who's bright idea was it to have white hockey jerseys????) came out bright and a stain that she got on it a few weeks ago came out with no additional care!! As promised on the packaging, it reinstated the fabric performance. It really does get the stink out.
You can purchase this online at 2toms.com. They sell a 10 pack for $17.99. At first I was a little blown away by the price but then I realized that this washes a lot of clothing and I could stretch out a 10 pack to cover at least a couple of months. I also realized it would be way more expensive to have to replace all of my technical clothes.
This detergent is residue free and contains no Phosphates. It is made in the USA.
Thank you 2 Toms for the opportunity of review Stink Free Sports Detergent.
