When we work out we do it to break a sweat.


To get those muscles working. To feel the burn, that great feeling of pushing yourself and then exhaustion – followed by the adrenaline rush and endorphin peak.


After we finish a run, a HIIT class or a bike ride, typically we are not leaving our socks and clothing smelling like roses.  We stink!



Regular laundry detergents are for regular clothing – but we know that after we sweat, those clothes are any but regular!


With the newly released HEX Detergent, specially designed for athletic clothing, we can get that stank out the first time through the wash.


Sweat and grime sticks to clothing differently than a jelly sandwich would. The composure of our sweat is very different than that of food or dirt. This means we need a detergent that knows how to battle that stink and those types of germs left behind.

The clothing industry has changed what our clothing is made of – Fabrics are now synthetic or blended mixes. Traditional detergents don’t take into account these types of materials and what happens when grime and sweat gets absorbed into them. Using a traditional detergent, you can typically still smell grime on synthetics (your running shorts or tops) after they have been fully washed. This is because its not getting into the fabric and releasing the unwanted parts. Its still dirty!


HEX eliminates odors caused by sweat, bacteria, and mildew


HEX is a clean liquid – no dyes or fillers to try and cover up smells – instead HEX works and removes those smells. There is nothing to hide with HEX.  HEX pours like water and is easy to use. It has no dyes, no fillers, no optical brightener, no phosphates – it’s just clean.


Traditional detergents will clog your clothing with dyes and fillers. Once you start to use HEX on your clothing, after a few washes, you will remove all those cover up agents and start to truley have clean clothing.



HEX Performance contains an eco-friendly non-allergenic molecule behind that helps to actively prevent future stink and stains!

MamatheFox Thoughts


  1. I love how easy to use the pods and the liquid pour pouches work. I can quickly start a load without a hassle
  2. My clothing smell great – like nothing!
  3. I feel like my clothing will last longer now because they are getting clean, but not being over worked by harsh dyes and additives
  4. The On Demand + Spray and Go is amazing for shoes! My feet stink after I jog, and this really helps a LOT
  5. The Laundry Odor & Stain Fighter is for sweat and bacteria, not your kids PB&J stains. It works differently than other stain removers – so keep HEX for your performance needs
  6. My husband doesn’t mind the switch! He is a creature of habit but seems to not mind my new HEX Performance detergent in the laundry room.

33 Comments on Detergent for Athletes – Hex Performance

  1. Yes! I so need this!! I feel like I’m always using extra detergent when I’m cleaning my workout clothes. I could probably save a lot of money by switching to Hex for my workout laundry!

  2. Its great that this kind of detergent exists. I know the feeling of clothes which come out of the wash still carrying the stink of sweat and grime. I usually put these clothes for another wash round and feel guilty of the extra water and power which is needed. With a detergent like Hex I am sure this will be a thing of the past.

  3. Here’s to getting the “stank” out! Lol! Love it! I’m sure athletes aren’t the only ones that could use this!

  4. I really need to give this a try. My fiance’ is a paint contractor and his clothing reeks in the summer.

  5. Sounds like a product that would be awesome for my youngest son’s Soccer uniform and shoes.

  6. This looks like a great option for workout wear and for really any clothing during the summer months.

  7. This sounds like a great detergent. I love that there are no dyes or fillers to try and cover up smells – instead HEX works and removes those smells.

  8. In addition to being made with ingredients that are gentle on the environment, Hex is biodegradable and sustainably packaged. It would be nice if Hex provided information on whether the ingredients were tested on animals.

  9. This sounds like a detergent that would work well for my husband’s work clothes. I will look for it!

  10. My boyfriend gets pretty smelly. (Shh i didn’t say that) would love to try this out for his clothes.

  11. I guess my question is, is this stuff more expensive than tide? Is it affordable? I really would like to try it, but I don’t know what to think of it compared to anything I’ve EVER used.

  12. This HEX detergent sounds wonderful. I’ve never heard of it before and will have to look into it. This is definitely a detergent I would love to give a try. Thanks for the review!

  13. I will have to let my oldest granddaughter about this, because she works out all the time. I doubt if she knows about this~~

  14. I haven’t heard of this brand. I’d like to try it on my sports clothing. Thanks for posting!

  15. I am going to get this product for sure. Thanks so much for sharing! We battle smells in this house all the time, and it’s true that our synthetic clothes are so much harder to get clean. Sometimes the laundry comes out smelling fine, but once it’s warmed against the skin again for another round of exercise, it just smells like a sweaty, rotten, tropical flower from the detergent perfumes covering the yuk still in the clothes.

  16. Well I haven’t tried it yet. I hope to win I would love to try it out . Sounds great

  17. These products sound awesome and I would love to try the Laundry Odor & Stain Fighter
