Sport Wash Test Results:


What is Penguin Sport-Wash™?
Penguin Sport-Wash is a new, residue-free laundry detergent, designed specifically to keep high-performance fabrics working and smelling like new.

Why do I need a special detergent for my high-performance fabrics?
Penguin Sport-Wash will prolong the life of your high-performance fabrics. Ordinary detergents leave behind a residue in the form of a scent, brightener and fabric softener. This residue in a high-performance fabric enables water to get trapped. Bacteria can grow in both the residue, and the water, which causes the fabric to stink. Additionally, fabrics wick, breathe better, and dry faster when free of chemical residue. Penguin Sport-Wash is a residue-free detergent which keeps your high-tech fabrics performing like the day you bought them.

Has any testing been done to back its benefits?
Yes, Penguin Brands, Inc. recently conducted its own wash test with Gore-Tex, and eVent, two high-performance fabrics. It washed each fabric five times in Penguin Sport-Wash, Tech Wash by Nikwax, (a specialty detergent promoted to maintain High-Tech Outdoor clothing), Tide, and Woolite. The clothing washed in Penguin Sport-Wash received the highest scores in terms of wicking, water repellency, breathing and the ability to dry quickly. It’s also interesting to note that when the “failed” fabrics were re-washed in Penguin Sport-Wash, their water repellency was restored.

Is Penguin Sport-Wash better for the environment than regular detergents?
Yes, it most certainly is. It is designated Readily Biodegradable. Penguin Sport Wash is truly a residue-free detergent. Some detergents claim to be “detergent-free soap,” but beware – soap rinses very poorly, especially in hard water.

Where can I find Penguin Sport-Wash? How much does it cost?
Penguin Sport-Wash’s suggested retail price is $10 for an 18-oz. bottle, which can wash 18 loads of laundry. Customers can call 1-800-523-2844 for the nearest store or click here.

Can I use Penguin Sport-Wash for my regular clothes?
Absolutely – we predict Penguin Sport-Wash is the wave of the future in terms of laundry detergents. In addition to being better for the environment, it’s safe for all washable fabrics, even those marked “delicate care.” It will remove tough stains and odors without harming bright colors. In addition, it can be used in combination with bleach, if need be.

Will Penguin Sport-Wash help my allergies?
It most certainly will! Unlike many regular detergents, which claim to be hypo-allergenic, Penguin Sport-Wash is non-allergic. Because it is truly “residue-free,” it leaves fabrics feeling softer rather than stiffer, and eliminates rashes, redness and other skin irritations that people with allergies commonly experience from regular detergents.

Penguin Sport Wash contains no bleach, phsophate, fabric softner, brightener, or scent. Unlike conventional detergents, Penguin Sport Wash rinses completely and leaves no residues that can reduce the effectiveness of technical fabrics. It will not irritate skin. Use on nylon, microfiber, polyester,cotton, and all synthetics.

About Penguin

Penguin's Philosophy
At Penguin they don't mind being in the lead. They're leading the way with new and better products all the time for a generation of consumers that demand innovation, performance, and durability, without harming the environment. It's all part of the My Generation Shoe Care philosophy - comfort for your feet, care for your shoes, concern for the earth.

Comfort for your feet
They want your feet to be happy. They've built their entire business around it. They use the finest quality, highest-performing, longest-lasting materials to help your feet keep up with the activity of your life.

Care for your shoes
You work hard, you play hard. They help your shoes meet the demands of your active lifestyle. Penguin products are designed to make shoes last longer, look new longer, and feel better.

Concern for the environment
They've been concerned about the effects of their products and packaging on the environment for as long as they've been in business. Penguin takes your safety, and that of the planet, seriously.

For more than 20 years, Penguin aerosol products have contained no harmful chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellants. Nor do their existing aerosols contain toxic chemicals such as Freon or Trichlor III. And to show their commitment to environmental safety, they've developed and marketed new product technologies, such as shoe care sponges and non-aerosol foaming cleaners, which are the most effective cleaning products on the market.

Everything Penguin produces and distributes is also 100% free of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), one of the most hazardous forms of plastic on the planet. PVC poses serious human health and environmental risks during manufacture and disposal. Penguin doesn't use PVC in their products or packaging. They use RPTE for their clamshells and blisters.

Penguin's athletic insole products are often made of Poron Foam and polyurethane foam, an effective PVC substitute. Polyurethane is an easily recyclable, chlorine-free foam that produces a durable, flexible insole, one that your feet - and your conscience - can feel good about.

So being in the lead has its advantages and its responsibilities. Follow the My Generation Shoe Care leader...

I scoured the Internet to find the best deal on this detergent and Lucky Vitamin was hands down the winner. It shipped quickly and arrived promptly. I know where to go for future refills.

We are an active family - a collegiate rower, a high school dance and performer, husband doing P90X and myself bicycling and running. My laundry room was smelling like the local gym - even as I was taking the "clean" clothes out of the dryer. for $9.00 I was willing to give it a try. When I read the directions for 1 oz per load and literally NO FLOWERY ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE I was really skeptical. I love this stuff! Our workout clothes don't smell! (except of course after a great workout!) Now I know it doesn't take a lot of a great product to get the stinky job done.
