Anne Abbott works part-time for Team AMR, is a mother runner of three school-age daughters, and lives near Bend, Oregon. This is her first (!!!) post, and we're thrilled she jumped in with such enthusiasm (and honesty) to blog about...laundry.
Temperatures are still dipping below freezing most mornings where I live, but spring is definitely in the air!
The sun’s rays brighten the sky a little longer, the mountains of snow in front of my porch have finally melted, and I see green sprouting in the backyard… which makes this busy Mama’s heart a littler happier, because (*hallelujah*) my Littles are beginning to venture outside to wile away their free time. The (very minor) downside is that they return with well-played-in clothes, working up a healthy sweat and bringing in the fair share of assorted dirt and grass stains.
That laundry piles UP. And just like you, we are busy! 1 Mother Runner + 3 Active Girls + 6 busy days of the week = 1 McKinley-sized mountain of clothing. Unfortunately, no matter how much I close my eyes, fold my hands, and pray that stacks of perfectly folded laundry will greet me every morning, I find the mountain right where I walked by it. Until, every.single.week, while my first pot of Sunday morning coffee brews, I enter the danger zone and begin to sort through the fabric rubble.
Enter Sweat X, a 100% biodegradable and 100% non-toxic high performance detergent that is designed to remove the toughest stink, funk, stains, and harmful bacteria from your sportswear and everyday clothing.
One bottle of Sweat X Laundry Detergent ($19.99/45 ounces) contains 45 washes, works with any type of washing machine, and makes your technical fabrics smell as fresh as the first time you wore them.
Which means that one load of sweaty socks, bras, swimsuits, capris, and tees + one shot of Sweat X detergent = one car full of fresh smelling girls come Monday morning.
My favorite feature: Sweat X Fresh sticks with me ‘morn to nigh’ and I can unabashedly get through my day without being politely avoided. Yes, I’ll admit (*blushing*) that I don’t always have time between school drop off, morning run, preschool pickup, grocery store dashing, working-while-mom balancing, after school carpooling, coaching practice, homework helping, and dinner fixing (*takes deep breath*) to shower and change.
If you’re nodding your head along with me or looking at your pile-o-whites and just seeing grey… trust me, Sweat X will put a “spring” in your step (*cue groans and eye rolls*) and you’ll feel like stopping to smell the roses instead of suffering through the week with scrunched up noses.
Are you ready to come to the clean side? Three random runners will win the Sweat X Bundle, a triple threat of Sweat X Laundry Detergent, Sweat X Odor Eliminator spray, and Extreme Stain Remover Spray, a $40 value.
