Remixing it Up: A RAD New Way to Clean Your Clothes!

They stink.

I mean, they really, REALLY stink. It would be embarrassing if I didn’t live alone. Heavy strength training along with frequent HIIT, pyramid and circuit workouts will do that to a (home) gym outfit.

“Wait a minute,” you’re thinking. “The post title promised I’d read about something RAD. Why the heck do I care about your smelly workout clothes?”

Because there’s something else I’d like you to meet. It’s called Remix, and it’s a brand new product from the ever-innovative RAD Soap Company.

Remixing Your Laundry Day

Remix comes in three scents: House Mix, One Hit Wonder and Grateful Threads. I was recently introduced to all three at the RAD Remix party, held at the RAD Soap store in Stuyvesant Plaza in Guilderland, NY. RAD opened their first retail store last November and has been turning out fun new products at a rapid pace ever since. Remix is the latest in a series of releases that include Voodoo body wash, Bath Juice bath soaks, Tub Tabs and rollerball scents.remix rad soap laundry soap

The buzz about Remix started several weeks before it made its debut at the party, which was a full-on dance party complete with entertaining dance tunes spun by none other than Zak the Soap Bro, a mini-buffet full of snacks (fruit included!) and a beer tasting. Remix was clearly the star of the show, and balloons added a final festive touch. RADsters popped in and out, stayed a while, shopped and talked, enjoying the welcoming and laid-back atmosphere.

Of course, I had to hit up the party to see all my RAD friends and finally try this new product I’d heard so much about.

What really piqued my interest about Remix was the promise that, unlike other detergents I’ve tried, RAD’s blend could banish the stench of gym clothes. Because, I’ll admit, there is nothing I’ve ever been able to do to get that workout ensemble to freshen up and STAY fresh. Another locally-made detergent had a nice scent but wasn’t powerful enough. Unscented natural detergent got the smell out initially, but it came right back after the first workout of the week.

After the party, I took my little sample bag of House Mix scent back to the apartment and used it in my usual Saturday laundry load. Upon opening it, I discovered a nondescript white powder with larger soapy “notes” in it, all sending up a very light “cashmere” scent. How did it stack up to all the previous detergents I’ve tried?

Does Remix Pass the Laundry Test?

The gym clothes, once again, serve as the best example. No smell. First workout, pure cardio? Sweaty, but still “cashmere”-scented. Even later in the week, after several HIIT and strength training sessions, the smell of the detergent lingered. I could walk into my bathroom without being bowled over by my workout clothes hanging on the door.

The rest of the laundry fared just as well. I’ll admit to occasionally smelling my own sleeve the first day or two simply to enjoy the pleasant scent of the detergent, and because it was so hard to believe the smell stayed without being overpowering. It’s especially nice if you wash bedding with it. Then you get to climb under the covers and stick your face into a fresh pillowcase full of RAD scent.

You also get to enjoy the softest clothes ever. EVER. I’ve tried a lot of detergents in the past, from the big names to the too-expensive types meant to keep dark clothes from fading to other locally-produced powder detergents. They all had their perks, but none performed anywhere close to Remix in terms of softness. Regardless of fabric type, every single thing came out of the dryer soft as could be. Even the towels, although these are always aided somewhat by the dryer ball I toss in with every load.

My only qualm about this detergent blend is some of the soap “notes” didn’t dissolve all the way and dropped out of the clothes when I was transferring them from the washer to the dryer. This may have been because the small bag didn’t come with a scoop, and I might have used a bit too much for that first load. Other than that, no issues at all. Two thumbs way up for the RAD family again!

Get Your RAD On

Remix is currently available in five-pound bags at the RAD store for $18.99. That’s 50 full loads! Think about it. If you do laundry once a week like I do, that’s almost a year’s worth of laundry. One year of soft, amazing-smelling laundry.

And no stinky gym clothes. (If you’re not in the Albany, NY area, small bags will be available online in the future.)

You can follow the RAD Soap story on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And, of course, check back here for more RAD chatter in the future.
