"I thought my expensive gym clothes were clean. I was SO wrong."
Let me start by asking you to please not judge my appearance in the above photo. I had just finished a workout and decided I wanted to try our new Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent. We hadn't launched the product yet, and I really wanted to try it for myself before promoting it.Have you ever gone to the gym in your freshly washed active wear and about 5 minutes into your sweat session you began to question your personal hygiene practices because youalready smelled stinky?
If so, I have good news for you, kinda. It's not you, it's your active wear. Our biological residues (AKA all the nasties in our sweat) stick to the fabric in our workout clothes and even the strongest detergents, if not formulated to do so, won't wash those residues out of the high-tech, complex fibers you often find in activewear.
Even the active wear we think is fresh and clean will start to smell the SECOND you start to sweat in them again. The ammonia in our sweat activates the stench in those nasty leftover residues (yuck) and no amount of chemical-heavy detergent and linen-fresh dryer sheets can keep you from stinking up the cardio section of your gym.
ENTER: ACTIVE WEAR DETERGENT
Rockin Green Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent
This detergent is pumped up with a special enzyme blend that's formulated to break down the biological residues that stick to your high-tech fibers WITHOUT damaging them. That's right, your Lulu yoga pants are safe. The best part? It's still all-natural, biodegradable, plant-derived, gray water and septic safe, and great for all water types!
So, I emptied my workout clothing drawer and filled my kitchen sink with warm water and 2 scoops of Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent. I would have used 3, but these clothes were already clean. I let my gear soak for 30 minutes and when I walked into my kitchen to drain the water, I was mortified.
I Thought These Clothes Were CLEAN!
I immediately sent these photos out to my team and also begged them not to look at me differently at work the next day.
The Active Wear Detergent pulled so much yuckiness out of them that it turned my sink water brown.
After the soak, I threw them in my washing machine. After pulling them out of the dryer, they were fresher than ever. In fact, after wearing these during my next few workouts, I felt like I could wear them again without washing them. (I didn't.) I had no idea how dirty my CLEAN active wear was until I got all the gunk out with our Platinum Series Active Wear Detergent. Now, like with the rest of our products, I fully stand behind this incredible magical detergent that is our Platinum Series Active Wear.
What Are Customers Saying?
"I’ve been adding a scoop to every load of laundry this week and everything smells FRESH. Not like covered in fragrance clean but stripped of funk clean. The towels, the blankets, the clothes... everything. Seriously, buy it. I’m floored."
- Maria from Arkansas
"Recently I’ve noticed my active wear has still had a little bit of a smell when coming out of the dryer after I’ve washed it, and when I start running in it, it starts to smell within a couple minutes. I found these crazy reviews for Rockin Green Athletic Wear detergent and decided to try it out, and it was worth every penny! So if you, your spouse, or your kids heavily use active wear, I would totally recommend this. I soaked all my clean clothes in the tub with the detergent and it was crazy how much gunk came out. When they came out of the dryer, no funky smell, and no over the top perfume like other brands, just fresh. I ran 15 miles in them yesterday, and NOTHING SMELLED, even my socks. Still as fresh as when them came out of the dryer. Best detergent ever!!!"

"I had tried everything in the past to get the stink out of my workout clothes. I had tried vinegar, other detergents that were supposed to be for activewear, but every time I would put on my gym clothes I would get the smell coming back. The real test was a pair of leggings that I had trained for a 10k in, taken many spin classes in, and I refused to throw out because they are my favorites. I soaked them along with my worst, and then threw them in the wash. I wore them yesterday, and there was no smell at all to them! I highly recommend this to anyone that needs to get the stink out." - Michele from Pennsylvania "This stuff is amazing. My gym clothes stink after a few months and I hate throwing away expensive lulu gear. Other products I’ve used get rid of the smell when you take them out of the wash, but then you sweat in your workout gear once and the smell comes back. I feel like this stuff really gets in deep in th fibers and gets all the yuck out. Also there was no damage to the fabric either. Highly recommend this product."
