Oh, volleyball knee pads. So useful. So protective. So doggone funky!
Maybe sniff is putting it lightly. I took a deep inhale into those knee pads like I was at the end of a yoga class and it was that last deep breath before the om. Big mistake. Huge! I immediately started coughing — maybe I was gagging? — and was so horrified. It was like the smell jumped into my nostrils, traveled through my nasal cavity, and karate chopped me in the uvula. It was at this point that I felt personally victimized by my knee pads. 🤢
And so, here we are. Thursday night. Four-plus hours of volleyball this week. Another hour tonight. Knee pads still hummin’. I needed to do something about this for real before I started another week with funky knee pads. What did I do? I grabbed a bottle of the WIN Detergent I recently received and went to work.
While my knee pads air dry, and I am awake past my bedtime, I took a nice shower, washed my hair, and drank a huge water bottle of cold water. Bedtime = time to slip into something cozy. And what’s something cozy, warm, and funk-free I can wear on a chilly night like tonight? My prAna Cozy Up Pants and T-Shirt! (Take 25% off with my prAna discount code AREEprAna25) I can sweat with reckless abandon in this cozy gear because the hemp blend used in this line is naturally odor reducing. Granted, I like to hope I don’t actually sweat with reckless abandon, but who knows what kind of dreams I’m going to have tonight! You don’t know my life!
Have you ever sniffed a piece of activewear or sports equipment and immediately wished you hadn’t? Have you ever tried detergent specifically for sportswear? Are you a volleyball player who knows the struggle of keeping your knee pads fresh so that they can last longer? Do you have any friends who tell you, “this stinks! Here! Smell it!“??? What’s wrong with them?!
