You Might Need This To Get the Extra “Stink” Out of Your Workout Clothes!

by Nellie

SAMSUNG CSCLast week I was invited to a boxing class at Aerospace NYC to celebrate the release of a new detergent made specifically for workout clothes. I don’t know about you guys but this concept is wayyy overdue for me. I workout so much and honestly the regular detergent doesn’t clean my fitness clothes all the way through causing me to put them back in for a second or third wash. HEX Detergent is made specifically for stink sweaty workout clothes so I was excited to learn all about them!


I arrived to the beautiful Aerospace and was again so blown away by the location. Usually when you think of boxing you think dark, sweaty, rough type of places. Instead the atmosphere is painted a beautiful white, with a (dare I say inviting) boxing ring prominent as soon as you walk in the door.

There was a pretty cool setup of HEX products and there were even branded boxing wraps that was perfect for the event.


I was able to get wrapped pretty quickly and we had our house of staying upstairs (which is what I did last time) or going downstairs with the punching bags. With all that I’ve been going through lately I didn’t hesitate to jump on the bags.

The workout was beyond anything I could have imagined. I’ve taken boxing before, in fact I took classes weekly for 6 months, but never like this. First my instructor laced up some old school gloves right up my arms. Once I was in those babies there was no scratching, no checking of time–nothing. We warmed up with some squats and arm swings and we were off to the races.HEX Detergent-5230

The class consisted of lots of punch combinations, jabs, uppercuts, hooks and right crosses. We would start off slow and to the beat and before long we were on the bag doing combinations in rapid fire movements. It was completely wiped the end but wow, I’d so go again in a heart beat.

When we were finished, we all gathered together to share war stories and eat yummy granola bars for recovery. We learned more about the HEX detergent from Founder and professional athlete, Drew Westervelt.

Check out more about facts about the HEX detergent:

  • HEX is an innovative new laundry solution that actually removes the bacteria causing stink and grime in all of your clothes. Traditional detergent focuses more on scents and stains, and can actually cause bacteria to multiply in clothing made from synthetic fabrics (think athleisure, pretty much anything from H&M, etc.) In fact, a lululemon shirt washed 5x in traditional detergent went from 187k bacteria to 747k bacteria – GROSS!
  • Founded by a professional lacrosse player looking to finally find a way to clean his clothes and gear, HEX reimagined what a laundry solution should be and created an eco-friendly, natural chemistry detergent & booster that not only cleans everything in your laundry basket – from grimy towels and sports bras to stylish dresses and your favorite yoga pants – but even protects them against future odor-causing bacteria and grime.
  • Launching on April 25 with their new look & new line of scented products rolled out to more than 2000 stores (including 150+ Target locations) around the country (as well as online),HEX is starting a laundry revolution.


I was able to try the detergent on my own stinky fitness clothes and I am happy to report that the clothes came out super fresh and without any hints of stink. It’s magical! (smells good too :))

OMG I would LOVE to go to a boxing gym like that! I miss being able to hit a real heavy bag. We have one in our garage but it’s not the same as those babies! And the gloves? YES, I need those too!!
You know I have piles of stinky, sweaty clothes and so does my husband. I may have to give this a try. Thanks Nellie!

Oh, I know it well! Not so much from my workout clothes, but just the laundry in general sometimes. It’s not enough. You need some extra product!

I never heard of it but my son boxes and he loves it! They have a class for women at the same time I thought about joining but it looks tough

Okay, so that’s disgusting about the Lululemon shirt. And there’s no stink like that from a good workout. The Husband is starting half-marathon training again soon. I’ll definitely be looking into this detergent!
