Sweat Hard, Smell Victorious | Sweat X Sport Review

Disclaimer: I received Sweat X Sport products to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador) and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

I'll admit it, winter is not my favorite season. Especially a crazy cold winter like this one! The snow came on November 1st and, who knows, it may stay through April. As they say: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And that's exactly what you have to do here!

When the weather gives you lemons, layer up and run!

To avoid being pent up inside for half the year, you dress in layers. Lots of 'em. Below is a picture of my running attire for an above zero run (heat wave!). It went as follows: Buff Thermonet hat and baklava, sports bra, tank, long sleeve technical shirt, winter jacket, spandex shorts, tights, gloves, cozy socks, running shoes and Yaktrax.

When in doubt, wear more tights!


All of the extra layers required for winter running make a whole lot of extra laundry and sometimes the regular old laundry detergent just won't cut it, especially on technical fabrics.

As a BibRave Pro, I received the Sweat X Sport Detergent and Extreme Odor Eliminating spray to test on my sweatiest winter running gear. Sweat X uses NANOVASIVE™ technology that is safe not only for activewear, but on all types of fabrics.


I put Sweat X detergent to the test on my running clothes and our regular loads because it is strong enough for your technical fabric, yet gentle enough for everyday wear, sheets and towels. The "Smell of Victory" scent is pleasant and not overpowering.

Sweat X detergent was even effective on my kids' snowpants and outdoor clothing. This formula is non-toxic and biodegradable so I don't have to worry about harsh ingredients on sensitive skin, even if our newborn baby's clothes sneak in a load.


The Extreme Odor Eliminator spray easily freshened up my running shoes, hockey skates and the plethora of boots and shoes in our house.

Just like the Sweat X detergent, this product is non-toxic and biodegradable as well. With a few sprays, it easily removes odors rather than masking them. I should probably order a whole case of these bottles!


A huge advantage of Sweat X detergent is the efficiency. Sweat X’s super concentrated formula only requires 1 ounce of detergent per wash load. Each 45 oz bottle washes 45 loads!

Sweat X 45 oz detergent is $19.99 and Extreme Odor Eliminator spray is $12.99. The Sweat X Value Bundle, which includes the detergent, odor eliminator and stain remover, is $39.99. You can buy Sweat X products in select retail stores or use code "BibRave15" for 15% off your purchase at https://sweatxsport.com/shop/! They ship to virtually any address in the world.

Here's My Verdict:


The Sweat X Detergent and Extreme Odor Eliminator spray has been very effective in cleaning our laundry, from athletic attire to daily wear to even bed sheets! I feel safe using it on my kids' clothing and sports equipment. The "Smell of Victory" is just the right amount of smell good without being overwhelming. I was most impressed that this powerful concentrated formula washes a whole load of laundry with only one ounce of detergent!

  3. Most of my laundry is fine except for a few old pieces that smell "funny" no matter what. My husband has a T shirt with that same "funny" smell. I'm curious to see if this detergent would cure them. LOL. Great job in getting back to training this week! Thanks for linking.
