Sport-Wash Residue Free Detergent is safe for all washable fabrics, and yet powerful enough to remove odours and your toughest stains such as salt, sunblock, soil, blood, and grass. Unlike other detergents that are manufactured to leave brighteners, fragrances and other residues behind Sport-Wash rinses completely. Nothing is left on your clothing to clog the pores of your fabric allowing it to work as it has been intended. Cotton, wool, and synthetic materials are left completely clean. Any insulation type down, Thinsulate, and Hollofil fluffs up for maximum warmth. Even difficult to clean sportswear materials such as Gore-Tex have their waterproofing and breathability restored. Nothing is left behind to smell, clog, or radiate UV glow from brighteners. While Sport-Wash does not contain phosphates to “brighten” your clothes, you’ll find it does not need them because on its own it leaves fabrics cleaner than any other detergent.
