It works!

    I have a nice new washer with a specific setting for 'sportswear.' This detergent works just fine with the washer. My shorts, jerseys, base-layers, etc. come out nice and clean. Time will tell if the life of my expensive cycling wear is being extended by using this. So far-so good.

    I wonder if Assos is making fun of us

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've yet to find an Assos product that is as good as, much less superior to, less pretentious options. This is laundry soap. It hasn't worked any miracles in getting the funk out of my cycling clothing. And, it seems to make stuff itchy. I've never had a problem with itchy cycling clothes and was shocked at how uncomfortable I was after the first wash with this stuff. An extra rinse cycle mitigated this a bit but isn't necessary with other products. Sometimes I think Assos just brands stuff so they can make fun of the people who buy it.

    How much is needed for a load of apparel?

    Best Answer

    2-3 caps is enough for most loads. Assos recommends skipping the pre-wash when using this wash.

      Works as advertised to get that special funk out of your favorite jersey that you rode hard in, but never washed.

      Assos Cleaner

      Love the stuff! Definitely helps preserve the look and feel of sports clothing. I have used it for years. It is a bit pricey though; some what in line with all Assos equipment.

      The Best

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Assos Active Wear Cleanser is without a doubt the best laundry product for your cycling kit. I've used it for quite a while now, and it cleans beautifully and leaves a nice, clean scent. It is not a harsh cleaner like typical laundry soaps, but a very gentle product that will help preserve those expensive bibs and jerseys.

      Expensive but works as advertised

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I invested in a pair of Assos bib shorts this year for cycling. When you make that sort of investment its crucial to take proper care of the bibs and follow the washing instructions accordingly. Rather than chance it with other cleaning products I used the sample bottle that was contained in the package. The cleaner does the trick and cleans the bibs leaving them fresh, but doesn't appear to damage the fabric whatsoever. Worth it if you want to get the longest life out of your new bibs/shorts

      Is this cleaner HE washing machine...

      Is this cleaner HE washing machine compatible?

      Best Answer

      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: 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.
