Oh, laundry. My constant nemisis.
It’s neverending and as long as there is a day that ends with -y, I have laundry to do.
When BibRave said that we were teaming up with Win Detergent, I decided to jump in on the campaign.
My family is an active one and we generate a metric ton laundry.
My husband goes to the gym 3 times a week, my older son is a runner, and my younger son does karate. Oh yes, and I happen to contribute too.
We sweat a lot, and now that it’s warm out, the smell that comes along with that sweat is that much worse.
Regular detergents don’t work as well as Win does because of chemistry. Personally, I’m not as well versed in chemistry as I am in doing laundry so I’m going to let the folks at Win explain.
The fundamental difference between WIN and other detergents is that WIN contains ingredients that separate the oils from the synthetic fibers. Just like pulling that static electricity balloon off the wall, WIN breaks the bond between the oil and the fibers.
Once the oils have been freed from the fibers, special detergent molecules called Surfactants go to work. Surfactants are common – all soaps contain surfactants. WIN has chosen its surfactants specifically to get the oils out of synthetics while leaving your gear functioning and feeling great. Just like you wouldn’t wash your pots and pans with shampoo or wash your hair with dish soap, we’ve chosen the right surfactants to wash synthetic clothing fibers.
Surfactants are two-sided molecules. One side is hydrophobic (repels water), so it grabs onto the oils. The other side is hydrophilic, so it grabs onto the water in the wash. When the water goes down the drain, so do the oils. And with them, the bacteria.
Because WIN removes the oils from your apparel, the wicking properties of the fabric are restored to almost brand new. Not only does your gear smell better, it works better. And because it works better and smells better, WIN users keep their gear longer.
Join me in my laundry room! Don’t worry, I won’t put you to work.
So the obvious question is: Does it work? In this case it’s a good thing that we DON’T have smell-o-vision because you would NOT want to smell our laundry beforehand.
Thankfully, our duds are fresh-as-a-daisy after washing so the next time you see me, feel free to give a sniff.
