I’ve mentioned some of the emails I’ve received from time to time from companies wanting me to test their products and write a review. Well, it’s that time again and this time it’s ProWash activewear detergent. It looks like they’ve been busy collecting reviews from other bloggers too.

One thing you may notice with these reviews is that they’re nearly all written by women. Not that guys don’t do laundry, but possibly because guys don’t notice the difference between detergents. I wish I could come on here and rave that this detergent “thoroughly cleans without sacrificing the performance of a garment” but honestly I don’t pay that much attention. Do my dirty running clothes smell better after washing them with ProWash? Yes. Does ProWash “work better than ordinary detergent on my activewear garments”? I can’t say for sure.

I mean the high-tech clothing of today has come a long way since the early 80s. I remember the first lycra shirt that I ever owned. It was a blue, skintight long sleeved shirt that probably only smelled good when I first bought it. I think the more I washed it, the worse it smelled. Now if I could put that to the ProWash 100% guarantee, that’d be saying something.

If you’re interested in this product, but would like more in-depth reviews, check out and the 103 reviews for ProWash. Also on Amazon, you’ll see that you can get three 24-ounce pouches for $26.64. I have no idea how the price of this concentrated detergent compares to other products on the market.

If nothing else, hopefully this post makes you aware that there are products out there specifically designed for all our high-tech exercise clothing. You may want to check them out for yourself to see if you notice a difference.

Thanks for the links to Chris Lundberg's blog. It has been inspirational to hear his positive attitude throughout his ordeal. I've dealt with many minor juries(in comparison) over the past year that have limited me to almost no running and I can say that my attitude wasn't nearly as positive. Thanks for sharing and giving me some perspective
