How can your clothes smell fresh wear after wear on the ski slopes? Pack light this season and forget the travel wash.
We’re all guilty of filling our suitcases to the brim, yet still feeling the need to find a laundrette half way through our vacation. Particularly if you’re going on an active, sweat inducing, holiday like skiing.
What if you could halve your baggage allowance and not have to wash your clothes?
Polygiene has devised a unique permanent silver salt treatment that’s added to fabrics during manufacture, and actually stops the growth of odour-causing bacteria when you sweat.
How does Polygiene work?
Did you know, sweat itself doesn’t smell? What produces the pong is the bacteria that quickly multiplies in warm, damp conditions – like those under our arms!
45 per cent of us have discarded a piece of clothing because it still pongs, even after washing.
Polygiene uses tiny concentrations of 100 per cent recycled silver salt salvaged from industrial and electronics waste; manufactured in the EU and strictly controlled for purity. Silver salt has antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria. It’s applied to the surface of fabrics before they are made into actual garments.
The treatment is permanent and never washes out, so it lasts the lifetime of the product. In fact, it often extends the life of your clothes. Both laundering and bacteria break down the fibres in fabrics and eventually wear the product out. Because you’re washing Polygiene-treated clothes less, you won’t need to buy as many new ones as often. Saving water and pennies.
