Second Chances in Laundry and Life

Before Vince joined my life, I walked my favorite hilly park once a week for about 5-6 miles. At least three days a week, I attended indoor cycling classes at 5:45am. After work, I would lift weights followed by hot yoga.

I’m not bragging, but I was a moving sweat factory.

Also, that’s all my life was at that time: workout, work, workout.

My moisture-wicking workout clothes were working overtime collecting sweat off my body and tucking it away in the fibers of the fabric. Ew!

My life before Vince was sweaty, routine and stinky.

Still Sweaty, But Not Stinky

My life with Vince is sweaty and routine, but not stinky.

Vince and I walk the neighborhood, I clip in for cycling classes at home while he hides under the bed, and now I pull out two yoga mats for our sunrise flow.

My life is now: Vince, work, Vince, workout, Vince

Part of my routine is that those moisture-wicking clothes from yesteryear are still around.

Thanks to Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator, which I use in my wash cycle with laundry detergent, my workout clothes don’t have the opportunity to routinely smell.  

Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator removes those odors, like perspiration and mildew, that can be hard to remove with detergent alone. I no longer worry that as I start to sweat, my clothes will emit that sour sweat stench.

Building Brands, Creating Jobs and Changing Lives

Just like Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator has given my workout clothes a second chance, Nehemiah Manufacturing, the maker of Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator, provides second chance employment to those who need it most. They employ those who are considered hard to hire due a spotty work history, no work history, or a record.

As a public librarian, I know we have many looking for gainful employment, but are shut out due to circumstances in their life. Yearly in the Cincinnati area, 2,000 are released from jail. Sixty percent are at risk of re-offending, but if they are able to secure employment they can break out of that cycle.


Nehemiah Manufacturing CEO Dan Meyer

Vince and I had the opportunity to visit Nehemiah Manufacturing and meet Dan Meyer the CEO. He spoke of their mission, introduced us to an employee who shared his testimony, and then took us on a tour of the factory (don’t worry, Vince was safe in the conference room).

Nehemiah Manufacturing is building brands, creating jobs and changing lives. They could use machines instead of people to manufacture and pack their products, but their mission is more than just the bottom line. Nehemiah Manufacturing hopes to inspire other companies in Cincinnati to live out this mission as well.
