Win Detergent Review and Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was given the opportunity to test Win detergent through my affiliation with FitApproach in exchange for a blog review. I received no other compensation.  As always, the opinions stated here my own.  

Our household produces enough stinky athletic clothing every week for a family of six.  Tom and I both participate in numerous activities including running, golf, tennis and visits to the gym.  An active lifestyle is great, but even better is the proper detergent to get your work out clothing smelling clean and fresh.  Sometimes I can be a cheapskate and I never want to pay alot of money for detergent.  I have one type that I use, due to skin allergies, and add white vinegar when the wash load is rather fragrant in a not so good way. This helps a little, but is certainly not the perfect solution.   When I was offered the chance to try a sports specific detergent, I jumped at the chance.  I wanted to confirm that yes, they were worth the money, or no, just keep buying gallons of vinegar and save a little money.

Over the last 10 days, I have tried both the original Win high performance sports detergent and the Win green high performance sports detergent that is fragrance and dye free.  To say I was surprised by the results is an understatement.  Some of our tech performance wear had smells that just could not be removed with our regular detergent.  I tested a few older tops and was pleased that they smelled fresh after washing.  I have already bookmarked the Amazon link to purchase this product.  It is definitely a winner (no pun intended) and will be stocked in my laundry room.

Here are some details from the Win Detergent press release: "Both versions of WIN are made in the USA, with a bottle made from 25% post consumer recycled plastics. WIN is septic safe, phosphate free, and can be used in high efficiency washers. WIN does not do any animal testing."  

Both types of the detergent are sold in 32 ounce bottles with a cost of $10.95 per bottle. You can also buy a 4 pack with a slight discount at $37.95. At approximately 45 cents per wash load, this seems very reasonable. The detergent can be used in the high efficiency front load machines and each bottle capacity is 21 wash loads. This is available through Amazon and if you are a Prime Member, good news because you get free shipping! Best of all, we have a giveaway for one lucky reader. Follow the rules on our Rafflecopter link below. Please be advised that this contest is available to US residents in the lower 48 states.

  5. Had not heard of this one! Most of the 'sports' detergents are pricey. We add vinegar to the 'running gear' load of laundry to get it fresh smelling again. Eager to try this. Thanks for sharing!
