This post was created in partnership with OdorKlenz, however the views and experiences represented here are my own.
That favorite tank you just don’t want to get rid of.
The race t-shirt from that special race that you’ve had forever.
The long-sleeve tech tee that fits perfectly.
That entire outfit you wore at a destination race that sat in your bag on the flight home.
And they all stink. That permanent, stubborn odor smell that just doesn’t come out, no matter how many times you’ve washed it.
There are plenty of products out there that are made to mask odors. They use heavy scents to try and conceal the smell, but do nothing to actually remove the odors from the fabric.
Enter OdorKlenz, a laundry additive that is formulated specifically to remove odors from fabric instead of simply covering them up with a scent that eventually wears off. OdorKlenz is committed to creating an environmentally friendly product that is safe for pets and families. Their unique NanoActive Technology tackles odors across a broad spectrum, making it more effective than other brands who simply mask odors.
Testing the Product
I am committed to using natural deodorants and as someone who sweats a lot this creates a bit of a problem in the running clothing department. Some of my stuff just really stinks and the stink just doesn’t go away.
When OdorKlenz initially sent me their Sport Odor Neutralizer product to try, my intention was to gather up all my running gear with “perma-stink” and do one big load to test out the products effectiveness. I’ve tried other masking agents, which add a pleasant scent to the clothes, but once you re-wear them the old scent comes back. I’ve also tried my own concoction of ammonia and that was just not peasant and time consuming.
OdorKlenz is easy to add, it requires just a half cup per load, which really appealed to me. I got my load of stinky clothes and was ready to test it out.
But my kids had other plans…
While gathering up the laundry in my boys’ bedroom I discovered underwear from our newly potty-trained three year-old. Which led me to the bed, where I discovered he’d had an accident and not told me. If there’s anything worse than the perma-stink of sweat, it’s the smell of pee that’s been sitting for a while. That just doesn’t come out!
I did the load of sheets, bedding and clothes with my regular laundry detergent, threw it in the dryer not even thinking and when it came out it smelled. Like really smelled! Once you dry something smelly, I feel like you’re doomed to permanent smell.
I pulled them out, tossed them back in the wash and then remembered I had the OdorKlenz Sport Wash.
“Well, I suppose this is the ultimate product test,” and I re-washed the bedding and sheets with OdorKlenz
When I pulled them out of the wash with OdorKlenz the stink was gone! And it wasn’t replaced with some heavy floral scent in return, OdorKlenz had removed the pee odor from all the bedding and the clothes.
I continued the process with a couple other loads of my running clothes with the same great result.
It takes a lot for me to be impressed by a product and this one thoroughly impressed me, when I run out of the bottle they sent me I’ll be purchasing more for sure, because there’s bound to be more accidents and more sweaty run-sessions in our future.
