A couple weeks ago I introduced you to the Hex Performance Product line designed to clean and protect your sports gear. I lovingly refer to it as “laundry care for your sports wear”, and like the packaging says it is a radical breakthrough in clean!
It was time to put HEX to the test with a pair of my sneakers that had never seen the inside of a washing machine (they are 2 years old). I wear these things to work out, when we do labs in my classroom and working outside. They are filthy as you can see in the photo, but worse, is that they smelled terrible!
I washed them with the Hex Performance Laundry Detergent and then dried them in our new dryer on the shoe rack. When I opened the dryer door I was elated to quickly realize that my shoes DID NOT smell bad anymore, in fact they actually smelled pretty good. In addition the detergent did get out some of the dirt. Unfortunately my before and after photos look so similar because of the lighting that you cannot see the differences. There are still some stains (because you know science labs stain everything), but overall the shoes are much shinier, cleaner and whiter.
Hex does recommend that you use this with your new sports wear and gear and continue to use it to ensure longevity and protection. My shoes were 2 years old and I was very surprised that they were pretty clean and even more so I was elated that the stench was gone!
Make sure to check out HEX at Target and their Website!
