I thought my expensive gym clothes were clean. I was wrong.
Due to Extremely High Demand Active Wear Shipments May Be Slightly Delayed.
Hey guys! It's me, Shannon.
(Marketing Associate here at Rockin' Green and sender of our weekly emails.)
Here's how it went: 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 you already 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.
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 like-colored 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 immediately sent this photo out to my team and also begged them not to look at me differently at work the next day. I mean, these clothes were CLEAN! I didn't trudge through the mud in them and they didn't smell when I took them out of my drawer. 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.
Here's another video of a BATH TUB full of Active Wear one of our users thought was clean:
What sets Rockin' Green apart from other detergents is the quality of the ingredients, how they are manufactured, and the way in which they react with the other ingredients in the formulation. The enzymes in this detergent were carefully selected because of their gentle, stain and scent fighting properties, the way they react with the plant-based formulas, and the fact that their formulation is strictly controlled in our lab right here in the United States.
If you workout on the reg but also love to wear your workout clothes out and about even when you have no intention on increasing your heart rate.... I have 3 words for you:
What Are Customers Saying?
“I bought this based on your Facebook post. Soaked my husband's jiu jitsu gi and rash guards that always have a funk, as well as my daughter's gi. Soaked them and then put them through the rinse and spin cycle. The white gi looked whiter and almost new, and there was no funk in any of the clothes! Hubby can't wait to roll in his fresh clothes to put them to the test, but we are believers! Nothing has taken that funk out as efficiently, and we have tried a LOT of things!” – Joni from Kansas
“All these years I thought that the smell that showed up 10 minutes into my workout was just me. Little did I know it was because I was not using the right detergent! I soaked my gear for an hour, put it through the wash and voila, the smell was gone by my next workout. I’ll never wash my gear in anything else!” –Samantha from Pennsylvania
“My husband’s work clothes ALWAYS smelled. We tried EVERYTHING and nothing seemed to work. I washed his clothes in Active Wear this weekend and I could tell the difference when they came out of the drier. That “musk” that always used to be there even when they were “clean” was no longer there.” –Kristen from Idaho
“I used cloth diapers with my son 6 years ago and this detergent was the #1 recommended in all the sites I was part of. Definitely get some, you won't be disappointed.” – Onelia from Puerto Rico
"My friend told me about Active Wear after she had used it for her workout clothes. I decided to buy some myself, try it, and record it. Well, I absolutely HAVE To send you the video because guess what . . . IT WORKS. My Lulu and other gear have NEVER smelled this fresh. EVER." - Christina from New York
