ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

FAQs

What makes HEX so different?

HEX was created to perform three key functions.

  1. The first is to ensure all the oils, sweat, and odor associated with bacteria and mildew are eliminated entirely from your gear and apparel.
  2. The second is to restore key attributes like wickability and odor prevention back into the fabric. The results are a win-win: fresh, clean clothes and gear and top performance after every wash.
  3. Lastly, HEX Ultra+ Dual Action Gear Wash is the only system designed specifically to clean and protect today’s high performance gear.
Where is HEX Performance made?

We’re proud to say that HEX Performance is made in the USA.

Can I use HEX on all my family’s laundry?

Yes! HEX was inspired by activewear but designed for all laundry. HEX also contains key enzymes to tackle all of your laundry needs. We particularly like to use it with our towels to keep that funky smell from developing.

Is HEX environmentally friendly?

Is HEX septic and gray-water safe?

Yes, HEX products should be septic and gray-water safe. HEX formulations are biodegradable, and detergents (in general) are typically good for septic systems. Septic systems usually encounter problems if oils are introduced to the system. Detergents generally cut and break down oils making the system run more efficiently. Learn more.

Is the HEX payment system secure?

HEX’s payment processing system is run through a secure connection to PayPal, Amazon, or Stripe. We never store credit card information, and your billing and shipping information is stored on HEX’s encrypted server. HEX will never provide that information to anyone.

I just ordered HEX. When will it ship?

All HEX orders are typically filled and shipped within two business days.

How do you calculate shipping charges?

Our shipping costs are fed to us directly from the shipping carrier, and we don’t add anything onto them. We don’t charge for processing or handling, and we don’t modify shipping costs from the rates given to us by the shipping carrier.

But we get it – shipping is expensive!

That’s why we offer free shipping on as much as we can: on orders of $25 or more. So you get more great products and less shipping charges.

And we’ve recently started a flat rate for all shipping below the $25 threshold.

The HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent bag has a smaller carbon footprint, which makes it more green to produce and ship. When you’re finished, the bag takes up less space in your trash too.

Yes. HEX Ultra+ Dual Action Gear Wash, HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent, and HEX In-Rinse Boosters are safe to use in all machines, including high efficiency washing machines.

Is HEX safe for my pets?

Yes. Items like pet collars and pet beds are easily cleaned with HEX. Additionally, HEX provides long-lasting protection from odors. We’ve received numerous calls from Equestrian owners who have become HEX loyalists by using it on horse wraps and blankets, raving about how well HEX works. All of these items are associated with grime, oil and sweat which is the backbone of HEX Performance.

HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent really works great on my family’s sweaty workout clothes. Can I use it on all my laundry?

Yes! HEX was developed to deep clean body oils, sweat, and dirt, however HEX also contains key enzymes to tackle all of your laundry needs. We particularly like to use it with our towels to keep that funky smell from developing.

Is HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent an additive or a detergent?

HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent is not an additive. It is designed as a standalone detergent made specifically to deep clean the sweat, oil and odor typically associated with bacteria and mildew in performance apparel. Use HEX In-Rinse Booster, the first fabric-safe additive, in place of damaging fabric softeners if you’re looking for additional static control, fragrance, odor protection and softening.

How often should I wash my laundry with HEX?

HEX replaces your regular laundry detergent. Use HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent each time your apparel needs laundering. Of course your clothes can still get dirty, but each time you wash with HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent, they will be deep cleaned, protected, and restored.

Can I use fabric softeners or dryer sheets with HEX?

No, we don’t recommend it. Typically, fabric softeners shouldn’t be used on moisture wicking apparel and performance fabrics because they can leave a wax-like film on the fibers. This wax closes up openings in the knit pattern that helps to keep you dry and cool. HEX Performance Advanced Laundry Detergent is specifically designed to restore moisture wicking apparel by removing this residual film that inhibits these properties. Dryer sheets add a fragrance to mask odor and provide antistatic properties. HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent completely eliminates odors so there’s nothing to mask, and it’s naturally anti-static, saving you time and money.

Looking for that added fragrance? Try HEX In-Rinse Boosters. They’re specially designed to be safe for performance fabrics.

Can I use HEX In-Rinse Booster as a standalone detergent?

No, HEX In-Rinse Boosters are designed to be the first fabric-safe performance additives. It’s the perfect compliment to HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent.

Can I use HEX In-Rinse Booster with my traditional detergent?

No. The formulas of the two products are not complimentary. HEX In-Rinse Boosters were designed with an entirely different cleaning chemistry than traditional detergents, and the two would counteract each other. We recommend using Advanced Laundry Detergent and In-Rinse Fabric Booster together.

Will HEX On-Demand Spray & Go clean my yoga mat?

Yes. Alcohol can break down the material of yoga mats and residues can affect their performance. HEX contains no alcohol and leaves no residues. Items like yoga mats, exercise equipment, helmets, shoes, and all items that you can’t wash are why we created HEX On Demand+ Spray & Go.

Does HEX work on athletic shoes and other kinds of footwear?

Yes. When we talk about gear, we’re including footwear in that category. HEX works great on footwear of all kinds.

Can I really wash hockey and lacrosse gloves and pads in the washing machine?

Yes. HEX Ultra+ Dual Action Gear Wash was designed to clean gear that you thought could never be cleaned. In fact, HEX was developed when a pro lacrosse athlete wanted something that could truly eliminate the smell and grime on his equipment.

For the past three years he has put his gear through a torture test of weekly machine washing, and his results showed that with HEX, besides being clean and odor free, there were no effects on the structure or integrity of his equipment. The good news is you don’t need to clean your gear every week in order for HEX to work. In fact, the HEX cleaning system will give an average of 30 days or more of clean, healthy gear. It’s important to always follow manufacturer’s care recommendations, we recommend testing for colorfastness before your first wash.
