Deodorizing laundry booster for fitness apparel and next-to-skin clothing

BaseFresh effectively deodorizes, inhibits the build up of body odors, accelerates drying and improves cooling efficiency of all active clothing.

Why technical base layer fabrics dry quickly and cool you down...

Activewear and sport clothes are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. The fabrics used are highly wicking (they will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for them.

Activewear need to be cared for properly to keep it in top condition…

To keep sports clothing functioning properly, care must be taken when washing. Using conventional household detergents or fabric softeners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric. Over time a build up of bacteria and body oils, especially in synthetic fabrics, can lead to them smelling. If using conventional detergents or fabric softeners, odors will not be adequately removed. Instead, they are masked by perfumes which fail quickly, leaving you with smelly base layers!

Wash your base layers when they start to smell...
