Product Review & Giveaway: Win Sports Detergent

Have you ever had a tech tee or running tights that just smelled straight up funky no matter how many times you ran them through the wash?  I know I have!  I’ve become all too familiar with stocking my laundry room with a gallon jug of vinegar just for that reason.  I constantly struggle during the summer months or if I’ve left clothes in my gym bag for too long.

It would always seem that no matter how much I washed my technical fabrics the stench just wouldn’t disappear.  Well, it looks like that may be a thing of the past and I just may be able to finally ditch the vinegar!  WIN Sports Detergent is a specially formulated detergent that essentially removes embedded sports odors.

My first load of stinky gym clothes was the ultimate of tests.  I decided to provide the best stench inducing environment for my gear–I packed 2 days worth of sweat soaked clothes into a ziplock bag and let it stew for a week.  It was rather rank by the time I was ready to try out the detergent so I had high hopes.  If the detergent didn’t work I would know right away and I would also be stuck with the funk.

Lucky me!  The clothes came out fresh and stank free!  The best part is that the amount needed is fairly low and one bottle gets you 21 loads of fresh duds.

For my second and third trials I decided to up the ante and include a few pairs of my son’s pee laden jammies (he’s still prone to the occasional accident).  Both batches turned out fresh and any scent of urine was gone.  I am definitely sold!

These detergents are great because they aren’t just a fragrant method of covering up odors, they actually work to break them down and eliminate them completely.

Have you ever tried special sports detergents?  Well, guess what?!  Now’s your chance!  You can enter to win 2 free bottles (one regular, one green) of Win Detergent.  That’s 42 loads worth of detergent for FREE!! 

If you don’t win you can still save $1 on this great detergent by purchasing through WIN’s Amazon and using the discount code: WINGIVE1.

Review & Giveaway: Bolder Bands

I was recently given the opportunity to review the awesome headbands from Bolder Band (bbolder.com). When it came to choosing a pattern to review and giveaway the decision was tough, but I went with the Tribal pattern for myself and the Blue Sorbet for the giveaway (see below for details).

First things first.  Let’s talk about how absolutely freaking cute this thing is!  I love the bright pattern and appreciate that the band can be worn multiple ways (wide, thin, over the ear, behind the ear, you name it!)

Not only is it great for wicking away sweat, but it’s definitely a great option for those bad hair days or when you’re at home lounging around the house. Hell, it’s a great, “Oh crap, I just rolled out of bed and need to look fancy in 5 minutes”, kinda band.

Okay, let’s get to the real question.  Does it stay put?

First off let me premise by saying I don’t know if it’s my head or my slick hair, but the headband slippage struggle is a real issue for me. I have yet to find the perfect band that doesn’t require at least a teeny bit of adjusting during a workout. After reading up on the rave reviews for this band I was stoked!  It promised to cover all the bases.  Cute, fashionable, sweat wicking, and sticking abilities all in one.

I gave the band its trial run at one of my softball games, but I made the mistake of not reading up on how to properly place the headband so I did experience some light slippage.  These bands are meant to stay put when worn a specific way.  “IF you wear them correctly (low on your forehead – more like a sweat band less like a plastic headband) AND you have the correct size, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7uFWP1_C3g ” the headband should not slip.

Guess who’s headband stayed put like a champ during her next trial run?

Yup, that would be me!  I really love these bands because they are lightweight and they do their job of taming crazy frizzies all while wicking away that sparkly sweat from your brow. Another huge plus to this band is that it’s not so tight that it gives me a headache.  I def recommend these to people who are looking for a stylish way to keep their hair out of there face and sweat out of their eyes.

All in all I can see myself getting plenty of use out of this pretty band!  Now, let’s talk about how you can get your hands on one for FREE!  I’m hosting a giveaway over on my IG page (@sarah_griff_fit) so you can get your chance to win the Blue Sorbet pattern for yourself!  In order to qualify for the giveaway your page must be public (so I can see you share the post) and you must follow me @sarah_griff_fit on IG.  Keep an eye out!  The giveaway post will be going live shortly!
