I Don't Stink Any More! (Giveaway too!)

Some people in my house actually have the nerve to tell me that I stink when I return from running.  I normally don't admit to the stench and blame it on the dog, but deep inside as I am gagging I know running brings along many joys, especially it's very own odors.

The colder weather we have been having lately does help things, but only a little.  If I have had a good run I am sweaty, that is the bottom line.  It doesn't matter if it is 90 or 12, if I have done what I set out to do I stink.  I am OK with this, and so is the rest of the family...... OK, maybe not my wife and kids, but the dog doesn't care..... usually.  You know, I still don't understand why my girls complain about my smell when I return from a run, it's not like they smell all pretty and everything when they get back from a run.... OK, they do, it is just me that smells.

Like I mentioned above, I am OK with stinking when I get home from a run, but what really irritates me is when I put on my clean running clothes and they already stink!  If you are a runner, you know what I am talking about.  We buy all this great running gear that is supposed to help wick away the moisture from out bodies and make us feel fresh and clean the entire time we are working out or running.  What they don't tell us is that every bit of sweat it pulls away from your skin is then locked inside those little fibers and comes back to haunt you every time you put on one of those "clean" shirts, or more appropriately, you and everyone around you.

I have to say I was quick to agree when I was approached with the opportunity to take the Smell Test Challenge from Febreze with their new product Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator.  You can imagine how excited my wife was as well with all the odor my daughters and I bring home each day.
Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator is a laundry aid that works in the washer with detergents to eliminate odors such as perspiration, cooking oil, grease, motor oil, pets, garden soil and mildew from virtually any washable fabric. While detergents clean the soils Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator cleans away odors that get trapped in fabrics.
Use Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator in any of your laundry loads with odors that can be hard to remove with detergent alone.  These loads often include items such as work uniforms or clothes, sports or fitness clothing, cooking towels, or restaurant uniforms.
So, the big question you are asking - Did it work?

Yes, it worked awesome.  We threw the stinkiest clothes at it and it worked just like they said it would.  Some of my favorite wicking or dryfit clothes can once again be worn with pride and not with extra cologne!  The clothes came out smelling fresh just like you would expect them to after being washed.  Gone are the days that you just expect your running clothes to just always stink!

The Giveaway!

The Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator people were kind enough to provide me with this opportunity to take the challenge and they are willing to let two of you have the same chance, but you must hurry since this opportunity is very limited on time.  The coupons expire on January 31st so we have to do this quickly.

Additional Entries (1 each):
***Once you have done each of the above make sure you leave a comment here on the blog telling me what you have done.  Each comment will count as one entry.

This giveaway will not last long because of the expiration dates on the coupons.  The last entry will be accepted at 10:00 pm on January 20th and the winners will be chosen by random.org.  The winners must contact me no later than 12:00 noon EST on the 21st or I will have to move on.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back soon!

  6. Okkkkkaaay, I so need this! My son, the 15-year old cross country runner, STINKS! BO galore! Even after I wash his running clothes, omg they still smell horrible. It's that crappy tech fabric...not only does it not wick away moisture, it traps orders. GROSS!

  8. I will like them on FB as soon as I get home and away from the Nazi prison camp I'm at who will not allow me to FB at work! The nerve! And I don't Tweet, I would go manic with one more social network in my life!

  9. As a lady I'd like not to tell that I have some stinky shirts after running in moist and hot weather (the synthetic fibre ones are the worst and I had this really shitty deodorant at one point). Some I've actually thrown away because of this... I won't be on this giveaway thingie since I'm from a land far away, but sure could use stuff like this on those shirts. Gotta check if I can find something like this around here.

  10. Hubby really needs this for his workout clothes...and okay I'll admit it I could use it too for my running clothes :)

  11. this would be great for my workout clothes, and also whenever we fry anything for dinner! Can't stand that smell and it always penetrates all the clothing!
