OdorKlenz SPORT LAUNDRY ADDITIVE
This product is intended to be used as a ‘BOOSTER’ and in conjunction with your favorite laundry detergent. OdorKlenz promises to “neutralize and remove sweat & body odors from workout clothes that laundry detergents leave behind.
I think we’ve all been there, especially after a long 3-4-hour ride on a hot summer day. By the time you get home, the stench of your cycling kit has completely taken over the inside of your car.
The problem then is deciding (a) do I burn these clothes or (b) what laundry detergent works best to remove the odors? Most of us choose the latter. Everyone has their favorite detergent so I won’t discuss these, but, I will say that the OdorKlenz Sport Laundry Additive works with both types of detergents I use – powder and liquid.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once the sample additive came from OdorKlenz, I made sure to pick my ‘smelliest’ kit to wear on the next Saturday ride. It is one of those kits that no matter what you have washed it with, the smell is still there. After a 2.5-hour hard ride, I placed the kit in the little plastic hamper waiting there until after Sundays ride when I would wash the cycling clothes.
I decided to use the SOAK setting first. SOAK is a 2-hour light agitation cycle. Next, I placed the selector to WARM, another 2-hour cycle. I wanted to give the OdorKlenz booster a head start on getting the smell out.
For the next weeks’ rides, I decided to wear the same kits and test again. Starting with about half the smell as before and 2 rides later, I followed the same process as above. Next wash, half the odor again was removed – so now I’m down to ¼ of what they were originally. GREAT!
I spoke with OdorKlenz and they said that to maximize effectiveness, “we actually recommend using a high agitation cycle with the product which helps to maximize the contact our earth minerals have with the odor source.”
Each time I wash my kits, they come out more and more fresh.
So, don’t expect miracles the first time you wash your kits, but, after several times, you will be pleasantly surprised as to how well this stuff works, I sure am.
