Product Review: ProWash

A little while back I was sent some ProWash to try out. I’ve definitely been testing the stuff, I’ve done several loads with it and I am impressed.

ProWash Detergent

A little about the product…
ProWash removes embedded sweat, odors and soap-residue without leaving more residue behind. Since it is a residue-free product, it rinses clean and allows the fabrics to retain their wicking properties and to not come out of the wash overly-perfumed. The detergent is safe for all fabrics, but really excels when it comes to performance apparel since we need those to keep functioning in the way they’re supposed to! The detergent can be used as a stand-alone detergent, as a booster for your existing detergent or as a pre-treatment for stains.

The packaging is cool!
ProWash comes in a pouch with a see-through window on the back. The window has little lines that can be used to see how much detergent you’ve dispensed. The pouch was designed to be kinder on the earth and they’ve got a whole page that outlines the reasons behind this packaging method. For me, it’s nice because it doesn’t take up a ton of space and when it comes time to dispose of it, it won’t take up all the space in the trash can. I couldn’t seen anywhere if it was recyclable (since I can only recycle plastics 1 & 2), but that would make it just about perfect!

My experience?
This stuff works! I loved how everything came out of the wash fresh and smelled clean. Not artificial-clean-perfume-scent, just plain clean. My green Under Armour shirt that I wore in this year’s RnR in Phoenix with the detergent… the shirt that had a big blood stain on the front even after laundering post-accident? After I washed the shirt with ProWash… the STAIN IS GONE! There is still a tiny faint outline of the stain in one spot, but it’s not noticeable unless you’re looking for it or you even know to look for it. So this stuff saved one of my shirts… Woo Hoo!

ProWash can be purchased online or at a variety of brick-and-mortar retailers, including Wal-Mart.


  1. thanks for the review! sounds like a good product, and the earth-friendly measures are extra incentive for me. (guess i’m a hippie). glad it worked well for you!

  2. I’ve tried to find it in all the Wal-Marts around me, but no luck, so I ordered it online, said “ah well” to paying for shipping, and it arrived in about 2 days. I think it’s well worth the price.

  3. Hi, I clicked over to your blog from Runners’ Lounge for your TiaRT post and started reading a few older posts too. Thanks for the ProWash review! I need something that will get sweat and sunscreen stains out of my white tech clothes. I’ll be looking for it on my next trip to WalMart.

    • Lisa: If you don’t spot it at Wal-Mart, you can always order it online. The
      ProWash makers state that you can get it at Wal-Mart, but I’ve heard from
      several people that they can’t find it at their local stores. I agree
      though, those sweat/sunscreen/deodorant stains can really be nasty on white
      tech gear! Good luck finding it and thanks for stopping by!

  4. Found ProWash on clearance at WalMart for $4.50 a piece – I bought 3 of them. After realizing what a bargain they were I went back to buy the rest on the shelf – but they sold out before I got there…

    Great deal at at WM if you can still find them.
