Laundry Detergent for Workout Clothes Review: HEX, Molly’s and Biokleen

Best Green Workout Clothes Detergent

I firmly believe that wicking exercise fabric is one of the greatest inventions of our time. I’m old enough to remember what wet, sweaty and cold cotton feels like against the skin and I hope to never, ever have to experience that again! But at the same time a lot of folks are understandably confused by how these kinds of athletic garments should be laundered. The labels say to wash workout clothes in cold water on the delicate cycle, yet that often leads to the garments taking on a funky odor that seems impossible to get rid of.

Persil ProClean 2in1 Review and Giveaway!

Persil ProClean 2in1 narrowBack in March when Persil ProClean and Persil ProClean 2in1 first launched in the US I was lucky enough to be among the first to try it out and review on my old blog (you can still find the entry here). I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I wrote that!

That review was for the Original liquid and Pearls, but this time I was given a chance to try out the extra powerful Persil ProClean 2in1 liquid to see how I would like it. I obviously jumped at the opportunity, since the ProClean 2in1 liquid recently beat Tide in Consumer Reports testing.

*GIVEAWAY ALERT* Enter to win one of three coupons for a free bottle of Persil ProClean! Scroll to the end of this post to enter the giveaway. Last day to enter is February 19, 2016!

One of the detergents in my regular rotation is Caldrea Sweet Pea liquid. It’s not a heavy duty detergent at all, so unless I’m washing something very lightly soiled (like colored sheets) I normally do a prewash with 1 1/2 Tbsp of my favorite Miele Care UltraColor powder and then use 1 1/2 to 2 capfuls of Caldrea liquid laundry detergent for the main wash. The clothes come out super soft and lightly smelling of Caldrea!
