Smelly Clothes? This is the BEST STUFF EVER!

Smelly?  Stinky?  If you spend any time working out, or if you have kids who do sports, you know exactly what I'm talking about.  With today's man-made fibers, I have found it more and more difficult to actually get the smell out of our workout clothes.  Buttercup's Five Fingers seem to get stinky pretty quickly, too.  So, whether they end up smelling like a locker room, like musty towels, or stinky feet, it is so frustrating to realize that my favorite workout clothes aren't coming out of the laundry clean-smelling.    Honestly, when it comes to the kids' t-shirts, I've been giving up and tossing them after a while, but really, we can't afford to do that very often and certainly not with anything that cost more than the "4 for $10" t-shirts from Walgreens.

Little did I know my solution would come in the form a sweet woman who worked at REI.  One day a few months ago, I was browsing through the store with my daughter and chatting with one of the ladies who works there when we started talking about how stinky workout clothes can be and how frustrating it is to try to resolve the situation.  The saleslady promised that she had the solution...Penguin Sports-Wash Laundry Detergent

The best stuff ever for stinky, smelly clothes.
...I'll admit to being skeptical, but I was desperate and willing to give it a try and I am so glad I did because this stuff really works!  It is "high-efficiency", so it even works well in our front load washer.  I have actually used a bucket for pre-soaking in the case of the super stinky stuff and for shoes.  Once you get the stink out of the items, using the detergent in your regular load does the trick.

So, whether you're dealing with workout bras, football jerseys, or your daughter's oh-so-cool Five Finger shoes, this stuff is the BEST EVER!  I'm just sayin'

Day 99 - Solving your laundry dilemmas is definitely productive!
