Assos Active Wear Cleanser $45.95
Like carnauba wax for your high-end clothing.
We know that all who've landed here are true equipe campionissimo and manga.Yio. Or, in non-Assos Speak, Assos fanatics. You've invested in Assos clothing not because of the cost, but because of its unparalleled technical sophistication. And along these lines, you understand that your Assos wardrobe deserves better than your day-to-day apparel. Now, don't get us wrong, Assos apparel isn't delicate stuff, but it does indeed benefit from special care. For this reason, Assos created its Active Wear Cleanser for laundry day. Essentially, it's an antibacterial treatment that's formulated to clean your clothing, to keep the color vibrant, to maintain the elasticity of the fabric, and to maintain the softness of the fabric. And of course, in true Assos fashion, it's PH-neutral and skin-friendly.
Yes, there's an Assos product for every occasion — even for doing the laundry.
The Assos Active Wear Cleanser is available in 300ml jar. Please consult with your official Assos care instructions prior to washing.

Is this cleaner HE washing machine...
Is this cleaner HE washing machine compatible?
The bottle doesn't say anything about being (or not) HE compatible. I looked on the Assos site to try to find more info...but no. I did find a phone for Assos in Switzerland: Tel+ 41 (0) 91 641 62 62.
Also, a on-line Assos' customer care address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully they can give a definitive answer (unless someone else knows for sure).
As it turns out, I did receive an answer after emailing Assos a few weeks ago.
The rep stated that their product is HE compatible. I have tested it several times and it's turned out wonderfully. Just a little goes a long way. I use a little less than the recommended amount and my clothes are just as fresh.
Works good, smells nice
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Despite the somewhat-small size of the 300ml bottle (the 1L bottle appears to be currently on backorder), it doesn't take much of this stuff to create considerable suds and do a good job cleaning your athletic garments. I love taking good care of all of my Assos investments so that they will last as long as possible... so I don't mind always hand-washing everything. I use this on my Brooks running garments as well. Although, I don't think this stuff is as skin-friendly as is claimed. My hands felt a bit dry after washing with this stuff the first time, so now I always use latex gloves when I do my hand-washing.
My bathroom sink is pretty small, so I will pour a small amount of this stuff (maybe around 1 tsp or so) into my sink... this is enough to clean some shorts and a jersey.
I tried rubbing this stuff into spots of tar and grime, but it doesn't seem to be too effective. For those types of jobs, I still use dish detergent.
