GO Soap Sports detergent is designed for Technical clothing and gear. Engineered to restore wicking and remove embedded sour odor from all of your expensive Technical clothing & gear. Technical clothing is very different from your day-to-day clothes. To get these clothes clean, it requires a very specialized detergent. GOSoap detergent uses specific surfactants that are able to break the bond between the man-made fabrics and the sweat/odor molecule. This bond is extraordinarily hard to break. Normal, everyday detergents are not capable of breaking this bond. They just cover up the smell with scent.
