This detergent is especially made for clothes with unwanted smells and odors in mind since it neutralizes bad smell. We used to call it Sport Wash so if this was your favorite detergent that you can no longer find - here it is! We simply changed the name. The detergent is developed for sportswear since these kinds of clothes are often worn close to the body and exposed to sweat. Although, it works like magic on clothes with other smells to like old vintage clothes, mold, smoke, ingrown stains from food or leaking diapers.
What makes this detergent unique is the formula and the ingredient zinc salt. The zinc salt is a molecule that takes care of odor. For example, sweat is basically a bacterial culture that produces very very tiny molecules - this is what we perceive as bad smell. They are very difficult to get rid of completely. The bigger the molecules, the easier to wash off, but the bacteria creates these very tiny molecules. This is where the zinc salt enters the picture. The zinc salt reacts to the tiny smelly molecules and creates bigger ones, which makes them easier to wash off in the washing machine.
Besides defeating and neutralizing bad odor the detergent is also very gentle with synthetic fibers and cotton. It's very efficient in low degrees which is good since washing at lower temperatures prolongs the lifespan of clothes and saves water and energy. The laundry detergent is scented with citrus and cedar and it is very concentrated. You will not need a huge amount of detergent for one wash.
Odor Control Laundry Detergent is made in Sweden (just like all of our other detergents and Clothing and Shoe Mist) in a climate neutral factory in Vadstena. The palm oil used in the production of this product is certified as does not origin from the rainforest. The detergent is completely biodegradable.
