Before I (Adrienne) sing the praises of Sweat X Sport, a quick announcement:
Listen up! There's a bonus AMR podcast that dropped yesterday -- a chat between Sarah and Molly. BAMR, look for it in your podcast feed! And who doesn't love a bonus Molly?
I am a late adopter. It doesn't matter, really, what the thing to be adopted is. The new thing, I reason, really can't be that much better than the old thing. For example, I committed to a digital camera just in time for them to be eclipsed by smart phones. Then I switched to a smart phone once I could no longer get a decent dumb phone. Once I had a smart phone, I was slow to hop on the podcast bandwagon. Ditto Facebook. And Twitter. And Instagram.
But now that I've adopted all of those things, I can't look back. I love my iPhone and podcasts and social media. Sad, maybe, but true.
Which is why I was a late convert to Sweat X Sport, the nanotech laundry detergent that has been engineered to work magic on stinky, stained technical fabrics. I scoffed, frankly. I poo-poo'd. How can one laundry detergent really be that different from any other?
I finally gave Sweat X Sport a shot when faced with a Ziplock bag full of running clothes that had been marinating in my suitcase after a vacation in hot, humid Florida. While I'd like to think I am a delicate flower who always smells like a fresh spring rain, my capris tell their own tale. I had a Sweat X Sport sample in my laundry room, had heard all about how the wee little nanoparticles scrub the crud from man-made fibers, and figured it couldn't hurt.
After that load, I was a convert. My odiferous bra, capris, and Balegas emerged from the washer smelling like ... nothing. They continued to smell like nothing the next time I went for a run in them. Which is the best praise I can give for laundry. I honestly don't want it to smell like detergent or fabric softener or much of anything. I just want it to be clean and odor-free.
Now I can't imagine doing laundry without sorting out all of the tech fabrics first so that they can get their own special spa treatment in biodegradable Sweat X Sport. Sometimes I also chuck in the towels I've used to dry off the dog, which develop their own special stench, and my daughter's tennis gear. I've also been tempted to toss in my 11-year old son -- how do pre-pubescent boys get so smelly? -- but can't figure out a way to do it without hurting the kid.
