Whether you are a fitness buff yourself or have children or a spouse who play sports, you know that keeping athletic apparel clean, fresh and looking good can be a challenge. That’s because sport stains and odors can be particularly difficult to remove from clothing – particularly the newer, breathable fabrics that can help keep you cool and dry but can also produce difficult stains.

If you are wondering how to keep sports clothes stain and odor free, Don’t Sweet It! Procter & Gamble and Target are partnering to offer products that can help you:

  • Tide® Plus Febreze Freshness Sport™ is designed to help remove tough stains and odors from clothes that take the hardest hits.  It helps leave your entire load clean and fresh,  which can eliminate the need to purchase specialty products or wash your active wear separately. What a convenience, right? And, what’s more, it’s renewing freshness technology releases freshness as you move — giving you added confidence on the court, in the field or at the gym.
  • Febreze® SPORT Extreme Odor Eliminator™ with Sweat X Technology helps eliminate lingering sports odors. It is specifically formulated to eliminate sweat odors on shoes, apparel and gear.
  • C9 by Champion™, an active wear line available exclusively at Target stores and

I received some samples of Tide plus Febreze Freshness and I was very excited to give it a whirl.  I hate when towels don’t come out fresh from the wash and I am guilty of leaving piles of wet towels to ‘dry’ themselves so I was curious if this would really work.  I have an HE washer and these samples were not for HE washers so I just just a little bit at a time.  I was pretty impressed with how fresh and clean everything was and my samples went pretty far!  I’m hoping this comes in the HE formula so I can keep it on hand for when I need that extra help getting my cloths fresh!

I picked up a bottle of the Febreze SPORT Extreme Odor Eliminator with my Target Gift Card and I love the fresh smell of it!  My husband shoes tend to stink a bit so I used it in them and it worked great!  I’ve also been using it on the inside of our winter coats…. with the kids playing outside all bundled up, they tend to sweat at times and this has worked very well at keeping their jacket liners fresh!
