WIN Detergent Giveaway and Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review Win detergent. I have been hearing about it for a little while, and was very curious since well, we sweat pretty hard in the Montgomery household.

I would be lying if I said we have never had to throw out dri fit clothing due to a terrible stink that just won’t go away no matter how many times time I try and wash said clothing. it’s really sad, because my favorite shirts I wear most often…which means they get the most stink…and well, you get the picture. I don’t want to throw out my favorite workout clothes!

I was sent two bottles of Win sports detergent, original WIN, and WIN green. I really like the smell of the detergent, and I have to say, my clothes DO smell better after using it! My only qualm is that the detergent is very very liquidy as opposed to the thicker formulas of other detergents. Because of this, when I try and pour it into the cap, I manage to get it everywhere! Maybe just a personal issue on my part, and definitely not a reason to not buy it, especially since it gets the job done!

Also, don’t think that just because it’s cold out that you don’t sweat and don’t need this detergent. When I wear lots of layers, I actually sweat a ton. Also, I don’t own as many cold weather running clothes so they get worn more = more stink. Another good reason to use Win in the winter is because we typically go indoors to the gym more in the winter and let’s face it, no one wants to be “the stinky lady/guy” at the gym!

WIN has given me the opportunity to do a giveaway here on the blog. One winner will receive a full sized bottle of each, the original detergent and the green. Also, if you don’t win, or just want to buy  it anyway, you can use the coupon code WINGIVE1 for $1 a bottle of WIN.

Is it Time to Throw it Out?

 

Your workout gear I mean! I was contacted by a writer from totalbeauty.com about when the proper time would be to discard certain fitness gear in favor of new (and less smelly!) items. You can check out the full story here, but I wanted to post the photos/text of the part I was quoted on in case you don’t want to flip through all the pictures.

I wrote a post awhile back about washing your workout gear, and it still holds true for me. I have only had to throw away a couple of really old and stained workout tops and shorts that were so old (high school!) the elastic was pretty much shot on them. I know it may take a few extra minutes to take care of your workout gear, but in the end it can save you a lot of money from having to replace things! Plus, no one wants to work out next to someone who is stinky, and they haven’t even broken a sweat yet! (I think this means some of Bobby’s shirts need to GO….)

Here are a few other tips:

-don’t put running shoes in the dryer, it messes with the fibers and the glue/shape of the shoe and can make it lose stability

-rotate your running shoes with another pair, this is good for injury purposes as well

– If something is stained or has a smell you can’t get rid of, throw it out! It’s time.

-Sweat wicking fabric can lose it’s wicking ability over time. If you notice you aren’t staying as dry as before it could mean it’s time for new sweat wicking outfits for you!

-check your socks, if they are thinning or getting holes ditch them, it’s not worth the blisters you will get!
