Have you discovered that work out clothes and shoes can get a little smelly? Steamery Stockholm to the rescue. We now offer a Sport Kit with our high-tech laundry detergent and our on-the-go bacteria killing Clothing & Shoe Mist. Both products neutralize unwanted odors. What a dream combo!
What’s the difference between Sport Wash and regular detergents?
Unlike regular laundry detergents, the Sport Wash is a hi-tech solution with unbeatable odor control. A key ingredient is Zinc Salt (Zn(SCN)2), a large molecule with a great number of inactive and unstable oxygen ends.
A growing bacteria culture is excreting small molecules, which is what we perceive as odor. These small odor molecules will react with the inactive oxygen in the zinc salt and form even larger but stable molecules. The surfactant easily removes these large molecules from the fabric and brings them out with the water rinse. If you have a problem with far grown bacteria culture, pre bathe the garment in Sport Wash before washing it. Note that this detergent also works for any kind of smell, e.g. vintage clothes, long gone food stains, mold, smoke, the smell of baby poop, etc.
What kind of perfumes do you use?
We only use high-quality perfumes containing no polycyclic musk.
Is the detergent environmentally friendly?
Steamery Sport Wash contains nothing but natural ingredients that are readily biodegradable, which means they are broken down within hours. The palm oil used is certified and not rainforest harvested. All our laundry detergents are produced in Östergötland, Sweden. The factory is certified as climate neutral. This means they compensate for all CO2 as well as other emissions
Is the Sport Wash for sportswear only?
This is a very effective detergent that will remove odors from cotton and synthetic fibers. So, use it for smelly bedlinen, workout clothes, t-shirts, jeans, anything that needs an odor killer.
How on earth does this work?
The mist uses the power of nature’s own cleaners, microbes. They take care of the biological degradation in nature, by producing enzymes and other substances that break down organic matter. Microbes are also a vital part of human health and our ecosystem. In simple terms: The good bacteria “eat” the bad ones.
What’s in the bottle?
Water (of course), bacterial culture and perfumes. <3% non-ionic surfactant, methylisothiazolinone, benzisothiazolinone and n-octylisothiazolinone.
How do I store the opened bottle?
An opened bottle is stable for at least 6 months. Normal room temperature works fine, but please avoid direct sunlight.
How does the Clothing & Shoe Mist effect the ecosystem?
This product is easily biodegradable (within hours). The packaging is made of recyclable plastic and should be sorted as hard plastic packaging.
How do I use the mist?
The spray is ready-mixed for direct use in shoes and on textiles. Spray directly on the surface, let work and dry. Repeat if necessary. For best result, pre-treat shoes and other textiles before using them.
– Moisture-sensitive materials, such as leather, can stain from the water.
– For ultimate result, spray directly on the source of the smell for, not straight into the air like a perfume.
