Wisk Deep Clean Detergent Review

Sunday, September 16, 2012

DISCLOSURE:  I received free samples of Wisk Deep Clean Laundry Detergent from Smiley360.com to try and review.  All opinions are my own.

My family makes a lot of laundry.  If we don't do at least a load of laundry everyday, the dirty clothes pile up and we run out of things to wear!  We've used a wide variety of different brands of detergent, including natural and organic brands.  Some work well, others not so much.  So, I was excited to get a chance to try the new Wisk Deep Clean Laundry Detergent.

I was really interested to see if it would get the stink out of some of my husband's and kids' clothes.  My husband is an avid runner.  And when he comes back, especially from the really long runs, his clothes stink!  Regular detergent doesn't seem to get the smell to go away.  Even the in-wash scent boosters can't touch it.  The clothes smell okay coming out of the washing machine, but once dried, they're back to their normal funkiness.

The same thing happens with my baby's tops.  He's still kind of drooly and his shirts and sweaters get this gross smell around the neckline from all the drool.  Sometimes the smell comes out, sometimes it doesn't.  My husband had gotten into the habit of just turning shirts that stank too much into rags.  It would be nice if we could save those clothes!

According to the literature that accompanied the Wisk samples, some detergents can leave behind hidden body oils and sweat that get trapped inside the fibers of your clothes.  I'm guessing that's what contributes to the smell of some of these clothes.  The average washload is said to have 20 times more body oils and sweat than visible stains!  Wisk Deep Clean is supposed to help get it all out.

Here's a picture of one of our most recent loads of laundry before I put in the wash.  It includes my daughter's soccer uniform as well as one of my husband's really stinky running shirts!

I did this load last night.  My daughter had another soccer game this morning and she only has one soccer jersey.  The Wisk Deep Clean is pretty easy to use.  The samples I received were premeasured for one load.  The detergent itself smells really good as do the clothes when they come out of the washer.  Some clothes, like my daughter's soccer shirt and my husband's running shirt, get hung to dry.  Others were dried about halfway through in the dryer before getting hung up to dry.  My husband's shirt smelled really nice when I hung it up last night.  But, sadly, this morning, when I was folding it to put it away, it was back to its normal stinkiness.  I don't know if anything will be able to get rid of it!

Wisk Deep Clean goes beyond surface stains and penetrate deep into fabric to attack and help remove hidden body oils and sweat that other detergents may leave behind.  It comes in five different varieties:
  • Original
  • High Efficiency
  • Oxi Complete
  • Fresh Breeze
  • Free & Pure
Would you recommend it?
Yes, overall, Wisk Deep Clean works well at cleaning regular stains and smells really good.  I was disappointed, though, that it didn't get rid of the smell in my husband's running shirt.  It may be time to retire that shirt and buy him a new one!

How much does it cost?
