TMI – Dealing with stinky workout clothes & a GIVEAWAY!

Someone wrote in and asked about dealing with stinky workout gear. I LOVED this idea for a TMI post, aaaand I decided to do a giveaway with it since some of my favorite products save our gear from getting stinky.

There is nothing worse than washing a workout tank, slipping it on once it’s clean, and smelling worse than you did after your workout. Gross. Jake and I discovered Nikwax a few years ago and have been using it ever since. I still wash our regular clothes with laundry detergent, but any load of workout gear I do, I use Nikwax. I really think this product is a life safer and not only makes your gear smell fresh, but it protects it as well. Nikwax makes a bunch of different products, and their focus is on safe, clean, high-performing cleansers, conditioners, and waterproofing products, but since I’m doing a giveaway and a TMI post, I want to focus on the products I have used and love: BaseFresh, TX.Direct Wash-In, and BaseWash. (This is not an ad or sponsored, by the way. This is just a product I really believe in!)

BaseWash is hands-down my favorite product. This is what I use whenever I wash our workout gear. It doesn’t have a fragrancy-scent, but it’s very clean smelling. I love it. I just feel like my workout gear is legit clean when I use this. We switched to only using this and Jake hasn’t been throwing away stinky shirts that I couldn’t get the smell out of. I used to use a vinegar mixture to wash stinky stuff, but eventually, it just stopped working for us. Maybe we are extra stinky. I don’t know. But so far, BaseWash saves our workout clothes.
I don’t use BaseFresh as often as I probably should, but it’s a conditioner for your technical gear. I have it sitting out to remind myself to use it later, but this has the same scent as BaseWash. It’s not a fragrance, it’s just very clean smelling. BaseFresh also helps your gear dry faster when you’re wearing it, which is perfect in the hot summer months…or really any time…
I could not get a picture without glare on this package (the packages are super slick and shiny), but this stuff is amazing for waterproofing. The TX.Direct Wash-In adds water repellency to your clothing – if I ever wash rain coats, this is what I use! It’s not a cleanser, just a waterproofing agent. And it works. I washed one of my favorite running rain coats in it and I stay super dry. I think Jake used it on a tent? They also make a spray, so maybe he used that. But it worked, too!
Nikwax wasn’t something we had heard of before, so when a friend told us about it and we started using it, I was so thankful. Any time I find something that works, I love sharing it with you all. I wish I could send every single reader a sample. The last picture shows the three samples you get in this giveaway. You can read more about Nikwax HERE, HERE, and HERE.
