How to use:

Nikwax Sports Refresh effectively removes odours caused by sweat, dirt and bacteria from your activewear. It helps fabrics perform better, keeping your activewear smelling fresh and keeping you comfortable for longer.

Why does activewear get so smelly?

The warm, damp conditions when you exercise cause the bacteria found on our bodies to thrive in sportswear and produce nasty odours.

Normal detergents mask these odours with fragrance, rather than completely washing them out of the fabric. This means odours come back rapidly.

Detergents and fabric conditioners also leave residue that reduces the performance of activewear fabrics, reducing its ability to dry rapidly. This means more moisture, more bacteria, and more smell!

Why choose Nikwax Sports Refresh?

Nikwax Sports Refresh is a high-powered cleaner, that removes odour build up, rather than masking it. The powerful formulation cleans away sweat, bacteria and dirt, ensuring your activewear is deodorised, with no nasty odours hiding under a fragrance.

Its special formula not only cleans, but accelerates the drying time of activewear, reducing the opportunity for bacteria to thrive and odours to form. Not only does this keep you smelling fresher for longer, it will help you feel drier, and more comfortable.
