The Best Product in Sports Textiles Award is one of 16 juried honors given by WTIN.

Jury comments about the InvisiArmor product included the following: “[The] InvisiArmour (sic.) [product] is a practical solution that improves sport experiences for a broad range of applications. One area that is a very good benefit of this … is the ability for the consumer to apply this as needed. Currently, a lot of products that offer this solution are already applied to the fabrics/garments at the pre-consumer stage. We like that this can be consumer customized.”

About the InvisiArmor SPORT treatment
InvisiArmor® Sport Lasting De-Stink Treatment, when mixed at home with 3% hydrogen peroxide and sprayed on textiles such as athletic clothes, gear, or shoes, not only kills germs, but also captures odor molecules and provides a long-lasting scent. Treatments last for more than 20 launderings, but treated items can be worn many times without any stink before laundering, which helps prolong the life of garments. This formulation, which combines residual kill, residual capture, and residual scent technologies, is available directly to consumers, to give them more confidence every time they break a sweat or find themselves in a germ-infested athletic environment.
dReiniger LLC researches, develops and sells breakthrough infection-prevention products that reduce the risk of cross-contamination from high-touch textiles and surfaces in healthcare, fitness and other work environments. Intensive science and research supports every technology, to assure antimicrobial efficacy and practical use.
