Defunkify Active Wear Detergent

Alright, let’s be honest with each other. Our gym clothes stink.

Not anymore, though.

I’ve been seeing active wear detergent for a while now and I just wasn’t ready to gamble with it. Yes, there are pictures of clean water then dirty water. Yes, there are claims of it being the best way to clean sweaty clothes. Yes, it’s relatively cheap.

Well, one day last week I just couldn’t take it anymore. I was about 5 minutes into my workout and that familiar smell of an old sponge hit my nostrils and I’d had enough. I endured another workout inhaling my own funk and the next day I ordered Defunkify.

It was delivered yesterday and within the blink of an eye I had a “clean” hoodie and sports bra soaking in the bathroom sink.

I sloshed my clothes around a couple of times and let them soak for 5 minutes. This is the disgusting result:


Oh, my GOD. I was horrified, so naturally I posted it all over social media.

This right here is why our gym clothes smell. Regular laundry soap isn’t designed to eliminate the enzymes in our sweat. Over time, it builds up in our clothes to give us that  dreaded mildew scent. My clothes are now so clean and fresh I’m going to the gym tonight just to give them a spin.

There’s a few extra tid bits that I really like about this company:

  1. First of all, the chemists behind this life changing product are from Oregon. USA, Baby!
  2. It’s derived from plant based ingredients.
  3. It is free of:
    Glycol ether
    Dyes or other harsh chemicals

I’m so careful to invest my money in products I trust that aren’t loaded with fragrance and other toxins, and this fits the bill down the line.

Order yours on Amazon and have your gym clothes smelling delicious within days!

Tell me what you think!
