Atsko Sport Wash. This stuff is awesome,and I have tried many.It rinses residue free and restores the loft to garments such as down or fleece.I have also used All free and clear and baking soda mixed together in the past with very good results,but I am sold on the Sport Wash.Atsko has a very informative website.

Does the All not have U-V brighteners, I routinely use the baking soda especially to rinse out /wash the base layers

Don't store your scent lock stuff with any scented wafers, the carbon will adsorb the scent until it no longer will work and back into the dryer it goes

Unless a detergent specifically states that it does NOT have uv brighteners, assume that it does.

I use Atsko sportwash too. No UV brighteners, no perfumes, just clean and scent free clothes.

And it's pretty cheap too! You might look at the bottle and think, " 4 bucks for that?" But you only need a little capful to do a whole load! You'll do more loads with that little bottle than your wife will with a gallon jug of stinky old All !

I use actual earth when storing mine. Some princess pines, some dirt from the woods, a handfull of acorns...
