A lot of expensive, useless gimmicks are marketed to hunters (e.g., "ozone generators"). I was on the fence about whether products to reduce UV reflectivity was just more of that voodoo. But based on the types and distribution of photoreceptor cells found in large mammals' retinas, I'm convinced that most big game animals do see a broader light spectrum than humans. So I examined my hunting clothing with a UV flashlight. Some clothing had built up patches of bright UV reflection compared to the overall camo pattern. Some reflectivity was probably a result of phosphate detergents, and some reflectivity was from oils and other substances that rubbed into the fabric and didn't wash out with usual dirt and grime.
This detergent either removed the UV substances or reduced UV reflectivity after two to three washes. It did not seem to dull or wash out the camo pattern itself. For good measure, I borrowed night vision gear, which translates the other end of the light spectrum, and found that this detergent gradually blunted IR reflectivity in the same manner. Some materials, like exposed velcro and labels, were inherently reflective and had to be removed.
Something to bear in mind before washing the life out of your expensive camo, however: reflective brightness is not the same as contrast. Some camo is high contrast to break up the human shape. A pattern of seemingly unconnected light and dark shapes looks like natural background movement. So the goal, as I understand it, is not to somehow wash bright spots from your clothing but just to tone down the UV/IR loudness to match the rest of the pattern as you normally see it.
Big plus: this detergent is even better at cleaning and scent removal. It was more effective on the worst clothing (wool socks and polypropylene sock liners after a summer backpacking trip) than anything else I've used. I've found that Scent Killer and Dead Down Wind detergents can require up to three washes to clean the worst clothing; off-the-shelf unscented detergent takes three or more washes, or never quite does the trick. In one wash with this detergent, those nasty socks were the cleanest they've been since they were new.
YMMV, and of course animals will always be able to detect some human smell in clothing. Wind discipline beats everything. But considering its immediate scent removal, gradual UV/IR advantages, and price under $10 per liter (when I last bought some), this is the best hunting gear detergent I've found.
The reason that smell keeps coming back is not because you naturally stink, that is the bacteria and other muck that stays in the clothing. Why did it stay there? There are a few reasons I believe. The main reason is you didn't wash it right away after using it for a workout or after sweating. You probably thought, "I'll wash it when I wash the rest of the clothes at the end of the week" So it sits in the hamper for more days than it should. So when you do wash it, it's too late. Another reason is you are washing it wrong. Nike suggest Dri-Fit clothes are to be washed with cold water and to not use any sort of fabric softner or those sheets you throw in during the dry. This ultimately ruins the moisture wicking factor of the clothes and the bacteria get stuck in the clothing. So when you wear it again the body heat activates the smell. So don't worry, it's not you who smells, its the shirt. It is a lot worse during the summer because your body temp can shoot up right away and that shirt will start smelling instantly.
I ran into this sport wash after trying a bunch of stuff. I tried using that Tide with febreeze sport wash. Tried using heavy duty wash and washing the clothes longer. Using hot/hot, or hot/cold washes. It doesn't matter, the smell comes back. The Tide with febreeze sport wash or other similar ones just makes the shirt smell really nice at first, but it doesn't matter once you start to wear it and it "activates". So FINALLY, after many reviews I tried Atsko. Yes, it is a lot more expensive per load, but I was willing to try anything. At first I think due to the hype, I thought it was working great, this was before summer hit. I really thought it "IMPROVED" everything. It is unscented and just leaves the clothes smelling naturally clean. It doesn't pump your clothes with strong fragrances. Then summer hit, the smell really was still there!
I do laundry once a week, and I run a lot and workout throughout the week, and I don't wash my clothes until the end of the week, so I had a lot of clothes "ruined". EVEN ATSKO couldn't save it. BUT WHY DID I STILL GIVE IT 3 STARS?
HERE IS HOW TO FINALLY SOLVE AND CLEAN THE CLOTHES. If Atsko or similar true sports washes didn't defunk your clothes and still giving you the symptoms mentioned above, it means you left your clothes too ruined for it to truly be cleaned by Atsko alone. This is what you need to do, or at least what I did to fully clean those ruined Dri-fit polyester blend clothing:
1) Put all those clothes that are affected and put them in a big bucket
2) Fill that bucket with water just enough to have all the clothes soaked
3) Put WHITE VINEGAR into that bucket of water. How much? I put a ratio of 1 parts white vinegar to 2 parts water ratio.
4) Put some BAKING SODA/POWER into that bucket. How much? I just put like a cup or however else I felt was enough to get a good mix.
5) Let it soak for an hour or 2, one time I forgot and left it over night.
6) Now wash it in the washer using ATSKO sports wash. I did not even ring out the clothes. I just took the clothes and transferred it to the washer. I did not put the left over water mixture though. Some people wring out the clothes first, again I did not.
7) OPTIONAL: my first time I also put a little bit of white vinegar and baking soda/powder INTO THE WASH WITH THE ATSKO detergent.
8) Run a normal wash
9) Run a normal dry in the dryer, do not use any fabric softner or sheets
Then do a test. Don't worry, your clothes won't smell like vinegar if you put some during the wash. I no longer put white vinegar or baking soda during the actual wash because I just soak the clothes longer with vinegar and baking soda/powder already plus I don't wring out the clothes when I transfer it so there it still some I presume.
As for the test, it's summer, so the ultimate test is simply wear the clothes that have always activated the smell with your bodyheat. With it being summer it was perfect timing to test it because I would easily sweat. I noticed FINALLY, there was no more of that smell of the shirt. Now you will be able to tell when your actual body smell takes over if you keep sweating. I'm glad to say using this method and Atsko, my clothes are say to wear again.
I only gave it 3 stars because Atsko can't do it by itself (trust me I've tried doing multiple washes with Atsko before method above) to clothes that really have been pretty much permanently ruined, but follow solution above and problem solved.
There have been some complaints about the cap, and I agree, it's poorly designed. There's always a little bit that dribbles down the side after I've put it back on. A minor annoyance that Atsko can fix. For me, this is not enough to take away a star, because it has no effect on the performance of the product.
