I'll see if their claims of restoring wicking power to older tech clothes is true next time I go running.

Penguin Sport Wash Results
Time for Penguin Sport Wash update. I just went over to my dryer to sniff at tech clothes. Yes, it is a strange site to be sniffing clothes but I've been trying out a couple of different brands here. My first impression was the smallness of the cap. WIN detergent came with a larger cap that looked like a Tide liquid detergent cap. You pour a full cup for a full load and half cup for half load. Simple. Penguin is a little vague here. The cap is smaller but there is no instruction other than, use one capful. For what size load? There is no answer. I resist the urge to pour two capfuls. After the wash, I sniffed all over getting strange looks from my dog. There is no fragrance and I'm confused because the clothes don't stink but it doesn't smell good either. There is a vague hint of vinegarish smell. I'm now wondering if I didn't use enough detergent. But after a delicate drying cycle, the clothes come out smelling neutral. It doesn't smell at all. There is no locker room smell nor is there any fragrance. It's just neutral. I guess I'm just not used to that.
