This is why your gym clothes smell terrible — even after you wash them

You may have a cleaner mind after yoga class, but your workout clothes are a playground for dirty, dirty microbes that defy traditional detergents.

Here are four tricks to washing the sweat from your high-tech workout clothes, for a less smelly summer:

1.Rinse immediately after use. After soaking workout clothes in plain water, Young recommends pressing the items between two hands to remove excess moisture. Do not twist or wring your workout clothes, which can damage the material and make it less supportive.

2.Do laundry once a week. Just like you separate whites from colors, you need to treat workout clothes as its own animal with its own time in the washer. Soak is also good, a laundry detergent that doesn’t require rinsing. Putting all workout clothes into a tub of water with one cup of white vinegar, two teaspoons hydrogen peroxide and two teaspoons baking soda.

3.Whatever you do, think dry. Odor-causing bacteria thrive in the damp, so don’t let your sweaty clothes ferment in the hamper. When you have time to machine wash your workout clothes, tumble dry them on low. Do not use dryer sheets, which can destroy wicking properties. Cotton gym clothes should be dried on high. For delicates, air dry by hanging garments on a regular hanger on the shower curtain road.

4.Alternate your gym clothes. Instead of wearing the same sweaty shirt every day, extend the life of your garments by buying several. Buy two of the same sports bra and rotate them, fuller-breasted women may benefit from three bras for reasons beyond smell. Supportive fabric gets stretched during intense exercise. As a result, the fibers need time to recover between workouts. The morale of this bosomy tale is that three bras are better than one when it comes to performance and stench. The same holds true of other malodorous clothing like bike shorts and jock straps.
