Halo sports wash discontinued at Sainsbury's
I’ve tried the vinegar, Dettol, and Napisan, you name it, none worked. Halo restored previously rancid commuting softshells and thermals that were headed for the bin to their former glory. Cheap way to get extra life out of old gear IMO.
Edit: I’ve never paid 7 pounds for the stuff, and I only used it in a wash once a week. I find this is enough to ward off the odours, so a bottle lasts months.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Er, I’m sure it works.
For £7.00 a litre it bloody well should.
I’ve always used soapflakes for breathable stuff & Napisan as a stench remover.
They’ve always worked fine
I haven’t got any stinky stuff at the mo, but I WILL try some if I stink up a shirt again.
Can’t say fairer than that, can I?Posted 4 years ago
Meh, you’re all mad, mad I tell thee!
I’ve never suffered from stinky stuff so I suppose I can’t comment on the miracle properties of the stuff that unstinks your kit.
I am getting old, and I am disillusioned with the world, and you’ll have to pry my cynicism from my cold dead hands, probably with ‘New Miracle Cynicism Remover, which removes cynicism 20% quicker than other brands of ….’Posted 4 years ago
Nah, if I was a superhero, my power would be not smelling. I can do 100 miles on the road bike and maybe have a slight whiff of exercise, ride to work 5 days a week and perhaps think about washing my base layer, but only because I think I should, not ‘cos of the smell.
I suppose it’s a blessing.

I can lend you a toddler if you like. Remarkably good at cutting through social etiquette and telling you like it is:
“Daddy, you smell bad”
But if you really don’t smell then blimey!
I’m riding to work five days a week at the mo and tend to wear two or three different tops as they all get a bit pongy.
On the plus side, if we were still relying in pheromones to find mates then I’d be genetically superior 😀Posted 4 years agomontariusMember
I also tried all of the above solutions but none worked on my old sports tops. This product has prevented me from throwing tops out so worth the £4 a bottle for me.. Don’t use it every time, only every other time so lasts ages.
Other benefit is that this work really well at 30 degrees and keeps my lycra in good nic 😉Posted 4 years agoFunkyDuncMember
I used to use non bio powders and had stinky clothes. Changed to bio and the stink has gone.
I also have some cycling gear that is now 10+ years old that has been washed in bio, and not fallen apart.
I’d been more concerned about the nasty sweat stuff coming from your body rotting the clothes, or the effect of all that grinding mud doing damage than a cleaning agent. Of course the marketing departments haven’t told you that wearing clothes will do them more harm than washing them…Posted 4 years agoFuzzyWuzzyMember
Soapflakes are nothing like Halo, I use soapflakes for a gentle wash on jackets coated with DWR but Halo is designed to be anti-bacterial at low temps – something which soapflakes aren’t. Granny used to wash stuff at 60c and wouldn’t have a clue what lycra is – washing sweaty sports stuff at 30c is very different.Posted 4 years ago
As for where to get it – I had to switch to the Tesco stuff when they discontinued Halo, seems OK thoughminipcMember
for anyone who is interested, i had no problem finding halo sports wash detergent at my local sainsburys store, today. i just walked in, and picked a bottle off the shelf. which was a lot easier than either signing up for this site or leaving this message. the moral being, don’t believe everything you read on the internet, or expect it to be easy to leave a comment to help others who might be mislead by out of date information.Posted 3 years agodirtydogMember
