Workout Clothes' New Best Friend
Workout Clothes' New Best Friend

I'm Patty Post, Mom of 3, workout enthusiast and entrepreneur. I'm thrilled to bring “Get The Funk Out” to the Kickstarter platform! I created the product have been testing and re-testing the formula for two years! I brought it to a Chemistry company and we created this amazing formula together. "Get The Funk Out" solves my problems of stinky workout clothes and it will solve yours too! I've given over 50 samples to fit friends and family from around the world, and when they ran out they were asking for more!! I've learned that “Get the Funk Out” can be used for so many things with this type of testing. Yoga pants and workout clothes, tennis shoes, delicates, hockey gear, really anything that comes into contact with sweat GTFO will neutralize and kill the odor causing bacteria left behind in our sweat. Check this link out that explains why our workout clothes end up smelling stinky, "Get The Funk Out" solves this problem.

I have some pretty cool stretch goals. If we make the milestones that means that every order will get the cool products that are created with additional rewards purchased. 

Sweathouse is my business and "Get The Funk Out" is the first product that I'm bringing to market. I've established the brand, chosen manufacturers and vendors in Minnesota, paid for the testing of the product and set up all of the distribution, now it's up to you to help me launch! This is all really exciting and your support means the world to me!

Don't take it from me, take it from some of my testers from around the world!

FB Friends...I want to share with you an exciting new product that is the brainchild of Patty Gaslin Post, Sweat House Spray. Ever wish you could leave the gym or yoga class without smelling like you just worked out?!? Then you have to try Sweat House Spray. It is AMAZING!! You spray in the Y regions of your workout clothes and it neutralizes the odor. This spray is great in that it helps the musty smell that workout clothes tend to get from setting in while they sit in the hamper waiting to be washed. I even spray it in my husband's gym bag...odor gone!! Head on over to the Sweat House Brand facebook page and check out the fabulous brand Patty has been building!!

Judy September 2nd, 2014. Helena, MT: I spray it in my husbands work boots because he's a concrete finisher and his boots stink!! I also spray it in the armpits of his shirts and they come out of laundry with no remaining odor like they used too. For me, I spray workout clothes including undies before I throw in hamper to stop bacteria growth and sweaty stink. I also spray my running shoes! Works great!

Patty, LOVE the spray. Totally works!!!!!!!

Why Kickstarter?

This campaign is allowing me to pre-sell the product and if funded we will be able to bring our minimum order to our manufacturer. This will enable us to launch our business! The $10,000 goal is important to us because we can manufacture the minimum order and manufacture the minimum order of retail displays, then we can expand into your favorite fitness boutiques and studios. If we meet our stretch goal we can manufacture travel sizes of "Get the Funk Out." 2oz. bottles that pass TSA regulations and our 2nd stretch goal is body wipes. Throw it in your purse or carry-on and use it on your workout clothes, tennis shoes and delicates while traveling.

If we meet our "stretch goal" we can manufacture 2oz. travel sizes!

What is "Get The Funk Out"?

Get The Funk Out keeps your gear from smelling funky in the funkiest of places. Too often workout gear is tossed out because of a funky odor caused by bacteria that are trapped in the fabric. With Get the Funk Out, those days are gone.

Anyone who’s ever worked out in synthetic fabrics knows what sweat does to them. Ten minutes in and you smell like you just ran a half-marathon. When you’re done, you go home and throw it in a pile of laundry to be washed later. Bacteria love it when you do that. You could wash it right away, but who wants to do a load of laundry after every workout?

Spraying Get the Funk Out on your gear after every workout freshens your clothes and inhibits bacteria growth, preventing the funky smells from settling in between washes. Want to wear your favorite light flow yoga pants two days in a row? No worries. Just spray a little GTFO on them and you’ll be good to go. Speaking of yoga, it works great for exercise mats too! 

How to Use: 

"Get the Funk Out" works best when applied directly to clothing after every workout. Just remove your gear, turn it inside out, and spray Get the Funk Out onto fabric. Wash according to manufacturer’s directions.

We love to sweat. Whether it’s from a good jog, a grueling spin class, reformer session or an hour of hot yoga, there’s no better barometer to a great workout. Sweat is diligence and hard work. And while we love sweat, we don’t like wiping it off with nasty, over bleached, scratchy gym towels, and we definitely don’t like the funky smell that sweat leaves behind in our uber expensive workout clothes. So we started thinking. What if someone created a soft, absorbent, multi-purpose towel that we could use to wipe up sweat, deepen stretches, and support the neck during our ab workouts? And what if someone created an all-natural spray that we could use to get the funk out of our workout clothes?

Ditch the dirty gym towel. Sweat House Studio Towels are soft, absorbent and oh-so-stylish. Made from premium cotton fabric, 130 thread count, hemmed on 4 sides, and screen printed with beautiful designs these towels will last . Sweat House Towels are multi-purpose, too. Suffer from an aching neck from sit ups? Suffer no more, Sweat House Towels are longer than the average hand towel, designed to be held on either end to cradle neck while performing sit ups. Can’t get a deep enough stretch? Hold either end of the Sweat House Towel and perform various stretches to keep you limber.

Risks and challenges

Our business is Sweathouse and "Get The Funk Out" is our product. We bring products to market but we don't manufacture them ourselves, so we're at the mercy of our manufacturer and their suppliers for the ingredients. If there should be a delay in our manufacturing supply chain we will be up front with our backers about it, but we expect that you will have your "Get The Funk Out" by the new year!!
