Goodbye Permastink: Revive and Refresh Your Workout Clothes

Blast away sweat, odors and stains that get trapped in the tight-weave of performance fabrics. With 5 active enzymes, this detergent cleans every type of stain from grass to blood and mud. Our anti-permastink formula with Odor Control technology helps eliminate and prevent even week-old odors, so they don’t linger or reactivate with body heat. It's not you, it's your detergent.

Helps Eliminate Trapped Odors

Targets Every Type of Stain

Protects Hi-Tech Fabrics

Activewear Lasts Longer

Good to know...
Helps preserve and protect the elasticity and tech properties of performance fabrics like yoga pants, sports bras, uniforms, and your favorite athleisure wear — so they keep their shape, stay stretchy, wickable and breathable. For added softness, our Fabric Softener maintains athletic wicking.

What's in our pod

dye-free • phosphate-free • phthalate-free • paraben-free • optical brightener-free • never tested on animals
Odor Control technology targets permastink to help eliminate and prevent odors caused by naturally occurring bacteria. Amino acids in the body can break down to form numerous odors: acetic acid, iso valeric acid, and iso butyric acid, 2-methyl butyric acid. You know, those pungent, permeating, sour odors that smell like a locker room during a heatwave.
You can (mostly) thank surfactants for making your laundry detergent effective. Surfactants are molecules with a unique chemical structure. One end of the molecule is attracted to dirt and stains, which helps pull the dirt out of the fabric. The other end of the molecule is attracted to water, which allows the loose dirt to become suspended in the water so it can be easily washed away. Soil, emulsified!
Did you know that it takes one metric ton of rose petals to make just one teaspoon of essential rose oil? Sometimes “all-natural” doesn’t equal “sustainable.” We use a balance of natural and synthetic fragrances for better sustainability.
We add enzymes to our detergents to fight stubborn stains. Enzymes are molecules that target the removal of traces of proteins or starch. We use a blend of powerful enzymes including subtilisin, alpha amylase, mannanase, lipase, and pectate lyase targeting every type of stain. But, not all enzymes are created equal. In fact, the cellulase enzyme causes natural cotton and linen fabrics to break down. That’s why it’s not welcome in our special enzyme blend.

Small Package, Big Results

Our pods make laundry day mess-free and, dare we say, easy.

The Power of Small

Ours is a touch tinier than average. That’s because we ditched all the excess water and unnecessary BS (*bad stuff).

Free & Clear

Artificial dyes and colors don't clean your clothing. Which is why our pods are naturally clear.

Perfectly Portioned

Using too much detergent leaves residue and can attract dirt to your clothes. Our pods make sure you don't overdo it.

Mess-Free Cleaning

Our Strong Seal pod technology keeps the active ingredients off your skin and prevents spills. No more sticky bottles or loose powder.

How to Use

1 pod = 1 load

  • First, toss pod into the washer drum.
  • Then, add your armful of laundry
  • Next, choose your wash cycle.

Our powerful little pod will take care of the rest. We promise. (That’s why we have a risk-free trial.)

For best results: use dry hands and don't overfill your machine. After each use, close box and secure the child lock to keep your little ones and pets safe.

Active Wash Laundry Detergent Pods

I've become such a fan of these products. Of course because of their "no plastic" packaging and the minimal space required to store them. But they really do a great job in the washer. I highly recommend.

Ingredients

I was taken aback a bit when I saw the litany of ingredients on the box. I was under the impression that the ingredients were minimal. Perhaps that was my mistake. Other than that I am pleased with your product, one pod for an average load is good.
