Penguin Sport Wash
Outperforming your performance wear? If you are washing it with regular detergent, then you are. Residues left by regular detergents trap moisture which cause odor, and block the performance-enhancing features of your gear.
Penguin Sport-Wash is no regular detergent. See the Runner's World review of this product at runner'sworld.com

Why do I need a special detergent for my high-performance fabrics?
Penguin Sport-Wash will prolong the life of your high-performance fabrics. Ordinary detergents leave behind a residue in the form of a scent, brightener and fabric softener. This residue in a high-performance fabric enables water to get trapped. Bacteria can grow in both the residue, and the water, which causes the fabric to stink. Additionally, fabrics wick, breathe better, and dry faster when free of chemical residue. Penguin Sport-Wash is a residue-free detergent which keeps your high-tech fabrics performing like the day you bought them.
Has any testing been done to back its benefits?
Yes, Penguin Brands, Inc. recently conducted its own wash test with Gore-Tex, and eVent, two high-performance fabrics. It washed each fabric five times in Penguin Sport-Wash, Tech Wash by Nikwax, (a specialty detergent promoted to maintain High-Tech Outdoor clothing), Tide, and Woolite. The clothing washed in Penguin Sport-Wash received the highest scores in terms of wicking, water repellency, breathing and the ability to dry quickly. It?s also interesting to note that when the ?failed? fabrics were re-washed in Penguin Sport-Wash, their water repellency was restored.
Is Penguin Sport-Wash better for the environment than regular detergents?
Yes, it most certainly is. It is designated Readily Biodegradable which means that it biodegrades much faster than regular Biodegradable detergents. Few detergents in the U.S. have earned this designation, which is actually based on the results of an international scientific study.
