Clean Up Your Activewear.™
Traditional laundry detergents haven’t evolved much in the past 50 years. Tide: same old. Gain: same old scented. Arm & Hammer: yawn. All: whole lotta blah. Seventh Generation: eco-friendly, but not get-the-job-done-friendly. You catch my drift.
These days, most detergents just mask odors versus removing them, which means even after washing, bacteria, body oils and goopy detergent residue still stick around in your clothes and create a lingering odor. It suddenly makes sense why the entire category is so heavily fragranced, right? Even worse, many of these outdated formulas actually clog and degrade fabrics — specifically super tight-knit activewear — so your clothes don’t last as long.
No one else was fixing the problem, so HEX Performance stepped in. And lucky for me, the last few months of my working life have been full of this boundary-breaking brand. NOTE: I’m also a diehard convert and will never wash with anything other than HEX if I can help it. You seriously HAVE to try this stuff. As a daily runner and gym lover, I have some seriously stinky gear, and the small and mighty HEX molecule gets clean done like crazy. #NeverGoingBack
HEX Founder Drew Westervelt is a born innovator and pro athlete who originally sought out to create a product that would clean and protect artificial turf without harming the environment. It was a game-changing idea that also happened to spark a completely new perspective of the laundry category. Drew recognized that turf and synthetic fabrics are both made of plastic. That meant his same science could also work wonders on activewear, helping fabrics perform better and last longer — all without harsh chemicals or traditional detergent downfalls.
Today, HEX Performance laundry detergents, sprays, fabric conditioners and other innovations are the real deal. I’m talking fabric-cleansing-and-caring tech so advanced that it can penetrate even the tightest-knit performance fabrics. It eliminates odors at the source. It protects against stains, stink and damage. And it makes clothes feel as fresh as the first time. HEX yeah.
A kajillion thanks to Karissa, Tom, Jerri, Drew and the whole HEX crew for inviting me to be part of your team.
