For cleaning and deodorizing active clothing
Synthetic base layers 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 base layers.

Activewear needs to be cared for properly to avoid odor build up…
Synthetic sports clothes are fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but over time a build up of bacteria and body oils can lead to them smelling. To keep activewear 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. Additionally, odors will not be adequately removed, instead they are masked by perfumes which will fail quickly, leaving you with smelly clothes!
