If you follow us on social media, you've probably seen the #ActiveWearChallenge where users soak activewear and other funky laundry in a container of water and two scoops of Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent — and after about an hour, the water turns murky brown and disgusting. Those who don’t follow us may have still come across an ad or two displaying bath tubs of filthy water and drenched workout gear. Regardless of whether you’ve witnessed the experience or not, Rockin’ Green Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent is perfect for soaking and deep cleaning those extra funky loads of laundry.
So how exactly is a soak done and what actually happens?
Well, the plant-based enzymes in our Active Wear Detergent get deep into the technical fibers that make up high-performance activewear. They extract hard water and mineral buildup and at the same time, dredge up bacteria from sweat, dead skin and body oils that were left behind — you know, the things that cause that set-in odor. Next thing you know, your once-fucky activewear smell good as new. Not yet convinced? Try it for yourself.
How to Soak Activewear and Other Smelly Laundry
Gather your funky laundry. Obviously smelly laundry, or activewear previously washed in normal laundry detergent. (The results after soaking "clean" activewear are always fun to see.)
Put the clothing in a bathtub, a large bucket or the kitchen sink — any large container that they (and the water) can fit in.
Fill the container, bathtub or sink with lukewarm water, just so the clothes are covered.
Add two scoops of Rockin’ Green Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent.
Mix the water, laundry and detergent around, and let the clothes soak for about one hour.
Return to retrieve your clothes from the dirty water. *Stand there, shocked for a minute.* It’s okay — we’ll wait.
Transfer wet laundry to the washer, but add NO additional detergent.
Run through a rinse cycle with just water.
Dry as you normally would and enjoy clean, refreshed clothing!
The beauty in Rockin' Green Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent is that it doesn't just cover up odor. It physically extracts all the yucky elements in your clothes that collect bacteria and cause odor. So when you rock a soak and dry your clothes, you can rest assured that they are cleaner than they've been, even cleaner than the first time you wore them.
What a great feeling, right? Happy soaking!
