The Ultimate Holiday Fitness Gift Guide | Day 6 | The Laundress

Sometimes a healthy gift can be hard to find. From November 12th through December 12th, I will be featuring great fitness-related gift ideas for the holidays. I've searched long and hard for gifts that fit the bill for people who like to exercise and appreciate fitness!

Day 6 | The Laundress Sport Detergent

We exercise. We sweat. Clothes can only take so much. Garden variety laundry detergents don't always do the trick for those of us who do a lot of wear and tear on our workout gear. While I love high tech wicking material that keeps sweat off my body and in my clothes as much as the next person, it's the very same material that traps sweat - making it difficult to remove.

Ideal Gift Candidate?

Anyone who sweats a lot when they exercise!
Laundress Laundry Detergent
What is it?
The Laundress is a special detergent that was created for active people. The detergent is really effective on a variety of fabrics, including expensive yoga pants and workout tanks. If you're going to look good, you better smell good, too! The Laundress makes sure you won't have any issues.

Why it made the list?
A lot fo special detergents are loaded with rough, toxic chemicals that can do more harm than good. That's not the case with The Laundress. This detergent is:

  • Non-toxic
  • Biodegradable
  • Allergen Free
  • VOC, phosphate, phthalate adn dye free
  • Not tested on animals
  • ALL THAT...and it works!

How much is it?
