The Stinky Song
For a little fun with this post, I searched the term stinky song on YouTube to see what would pop up. Oh boy, did I find some gems! Particularly, the Stinky Song here. Who thinks this stuff up?! Is he in my head?!
He must be, because this is what I sing to myself on laundry day, particularly the Monday after a race weekend. My entire laundry basket reeks from post-race FUNK (sweat, salt, spilled sports drink, splotches of gels), and I’m tempted to breathe through my nose to get through this task.

The Dilemma Has a Solution
I’m so over other laundry detergents that just mask the STINK with “clean scent” or some other nondescript fluffery.
But before I digress into how much I heart WIN Sports Detergent, why do our clothes smell in the first place? See this cutie patootie down there on the left? That’s Mr. Bacteria. The stinky smell is basically caused by his farts after he eats the oils on our skin. Ewwwwwww.
And the more you sweat in your workout clothes, the more the synthetic materials wick water (yay) but attract oil (nay). Greaaaaat. BUT WAIT! WIN Sports Detergent magically separates those oils from your clothes. (It’s magic to me, because I don’t pretend to understand the science behind it.) In a nutshell, the oils and bacteria go down the drain and off your gear.
And perhaps (in my opinion) the most brilliant part about all of this is that since WIN Sports Detergent removes the oils, the wicking properties of your synthetic materials (a.k.a. workout clothes) are restored to almost brand new. That means you get to keep the stuff you love in better condition longer!
This is the perfect solution for anyone like myself who keeps workout gear for YEARS on end. I love what I’ve got, and I want to keep it in tip-top shape for as long as humanly possible.
I adore WIN Sports Detergent! I was able to test out the Free and Clear version with the green cap, and it’s the BEST! I’ve used it on all of my running gear, plus some of the Angry Kindergartner’s clothing as well. Win-win in my book! Check out my video below:
