Earth Day Giveaway from WIN Detergent

sweaty KellyI sweat, both a lot and often. This whole Ironman Wisconsin pursuit is at times marred by rather unattractive aspects, like piles of nasty laundry every day. For example, yesterday I swam in the morning, ran at lunch and biked with Alyssa at night. This yield so much sweaty laundry. I had a load of laundry from yesterday alone. It's such a glamorous life.

The big problem is that if you don't keep on top of that laundry, it will let you know. This gear is not cheap and no one wants to smell funky when the stuff is clean. I was contacted by WIN Sport Detergent to try their products, and I was all in. They're launching a newly redesigned package in honor of Earth Day, so it's time for a giveaway!

But first, the detergent: the current version is septic safe, not tested on animals and contain 25 percent post consumer plastics. That's what I got in my inbox last week, and promptly put to great use in my household.

WIN Sports Detergent review



It definitely works! I used this a pile of sweaty towels with hot water and bleach, as well as a set of dark tech shirts and cycling shirts on cold. All my athletic apparel is back to normal after a spin with this stuff. It also doesn't leave any residue, which sometimes makes me itchy when I workout. What I like about the two-bottle pack is that the bottles are small, which is nice since I keep all that stuff on a shelf above the machines and I hate lugging out those massive Sam's Club-sized tubs of detergent. It's just a recipe for disaster.

The new bottles WIN debuts today, though, are pretty sweet. In addition to all the benefits my version has, the new sauce is fragrance free, dye free and are Design for the Environment certified. They also will comply with the yellow rating on the Whole Foods Eco Scale.

If you'd like to destink your duds while also helping Mother Earth, this giveaway is for you. I'll use rafflecopter to randomly select a winner next week, who will receive two bottles of the detergent shipped directly to them courtesy WIN.

I don't do laundry as much as I should. Robert does all of our regular stuff, and I'm lucky to sneak in a load of workout clothes per week (so I'm always behind in my laundry). I'm SUPER excited that our next apartment will have an in-unit washer/dryer. I hate walking down to the basement with a bakset of dirty clothes, only to find the single W/D for our building is in use.

Oh gosh, we JUST ran out of the other running-detergent stuff! I'd love to try a new one, seeing as how I wasn't impressed much with this one. :)

I think I do about three loads of laundry a week. One of those loads is running gear, which I hang to dry.

Lenka said...

I do about one load a week but I mix my workout and regular clothes. It would be good to separate since my workout clothes are much dirtier!

Teresa Millstone said...

I do a load everyday. I have a family of 5 so it really builds up.

Lauren said...

Now that I have in unit laundry I do a few a week.

Brittany Dudek said...

My husband would die over this. He complains literally every day about how his workout clothes smell. And, since he's also in training, we do 4 or more loads a week... just for 2 of us!

Meg said...

Ahhh, this stuff sounds amazing! Enter me?

I hate to admit it but we probably do 7 loads a week

We do about 6 loads a week:/ sigh. Lots of kids and lots of smelly running clothing.

About 6 loads of laundry a week:/ 4 kids and my smelly running gear add up

Zenaida Arroyo said...

I do one load of workout clothes and sometimes 2-3 of other regular clothes.

Valerie said...

I typically do 4-5 loads a week (whites, delicates, darks, towels or sheets, and Izzy's stuff or blankets.)

Laundry never stops at our house, either, with both me and my bf training for IM Wisco. I haven't heard of this detergent… thanks for the tip!

Jennifer said...

I do laundry probably every few days.

Between my husband and I we usually do about three loads of laundry. That amount increases depending on whether or not I am training for a race, etc.

I'm always up for detergent to help get rid of the funky sweat smell from my workout clothes!
