There are few better feelings than a really good workout. You’re refreshed, energized and…sweaty. Perhaps you noticed a sweaty smell during your spinning class or Downward Dog, and you’re just now realizing that smell was you. It may also be your workout clothes.
Performance wear is specially designed to work as hard as you do, wicking away sweat to keep you cool and comfortable. This is made possible by the technology of the fabric that makes up your favorite workout gear. Since cotton is highly absorbent, most modern workout clothing is made of synthetic materials that deflect moisture rather than absorbing it. While this is great for when you’re in the gym, it poses a slight difficulty when your clothes are in the washer. Many detergents do not have the ability to deeply clean your clothes, so the chemicals just sit on top of the fabric and create a filmy residue.
Moisture may not soak into your workout gear, but odor and bacteria certainly do, as well as the salt left over from your perspiration. If not washed properly, these elements can hinder the performance of your workout gear and decrease its lifespan. Roux Maison has developed an all-natural laundry detergent specifically for sportswear to get your performance wear truly clean and odor free.
Many online forums beg the question of how to remove body odor from workout clothing. Some forums answer this question by stating that sweat and odor are just unfortunate and unavoidable results of exercise. Others suggest adding baking soda to your laundry, which does have odor-fighting capabilities, but also has a high pH, which can be damaging to performance fabrics. So ditch the baking soda and the chemical-laden mainstream detergents that leave residue on your clothes, and choose Roux Maison Sport Detergent.
Workout clothing is not cheap; you’re making an investment in your clothing and your lifestyle. Roux Maison protects that investment by naturally keeping clothes looking and performing their best. With no abrasive chemicals or artificial perfumes, we pledge to remove bacteria, sweat and odor while maintaining the effectiveness and moisture-wicking properties of your favorite workout gear.
- Avoid putting sweaty clothes in a gym bag, as this allows bacteria to flourish and odor to set into fabric.
- If not immediately washing clothing, hang up to allow air exposure.
- For machine washing: add two capfuls of Roux Maison Sport Detergent to full load.
- For handwashing: add one capful of Roux Maison Sport Detergent to full sink.
- Line dry.
Available in two essential oil infused fragrances (Ambrosia and Sweet Tea), as well as Fragrance-Free, Roux Maison Sport Detergent will give your laundry the workout it needs so you can stay sweat and odor free.
