WIN Sports Detergent Review and Giveaway!

 
 
Hi there!  Today I'm coming at you with a product review for a sport-specific laundry detergent.  I know, I never knew such a product existed either!  I recently had the opportunity to try some WIN Sports Detergent, which is made to specifically treat athletic clothing. 
 
What makes WIN different from regular laundry detergent is that it is formulated to remove oil, bacteria and odor from synthetic fabrics (most detergents are targeted mainly to clean cotton garments).  Most running clothes are made from synthetic fabrics - polyester, nylon, spandex, etc.  Think tech shirts, jackets, and running tights - usually 0% cotton.  The 'tech' fabrics we wear to run are much better than cotton for their wicking abilities (ie. less chafing!) but they tend to retain odors more than cotton.  At least, I know this is true with my stuff.  Who knows, maybe I'm just extra sweaty?!
 
As someone who has to pay to do laundry, I often let my clothes sit for a couple of weeks!  It's true, I do not do a load every week.  Who has that many rolls of quarters!?  So, once I get my running clothes in the washer, it's important they get clean.

Please avert your eyes from my delicates ;)
 
 
WIN sent me a bottle of their original, as well as a bottle of their eco-friendly green formula, to try.  I've used both with a plethora of running clothes (shirts, tanks, tights, sports bras, socks) and I'm happy to say they all came out delightfully fresh.  I did notice that WIN does not have any kind of detectable scent, which is a bit different than most of the heavily scented detergents I usually use.  The green version is touted as fragrance-free and designed for sensitive skin, but I didn't notice anything with the original version either.  I also like that WIN does not test their product on animals.
 
WIN is currently available online (via Amazon here) and in select sporting goods stores, gyms and studios.  However, I have a chance for you to win TWO bottles of your own (1 original, 1 green)!  So, what are you waiting for?  No one wants to be the smelly one at the gym!  Enter the Rafflecopter below and good luck!  (Giveaway will end next Wed 11/26/14)
