How to Keep Work Out Clothes Clean

It’s hard enough to find time to work out, but having to keep your work out clothes clean is an added hassle. No one wants to be the stinky lady at the gym, so just follow a few simple steps and your work out clothes will be stink – free in no time!

The odor that penetrates your work out clothes is the result of the bacteria that feed on sweat. To keep work out clothes clean, try using a laundry detergent that’s anti bacterial as well.

Also, high heats kill germs, so be sure to wash your work out clothes in the hottest water possible. Adding half a cup of baking soda, or some distilled vinegar, will also help keep your work out clothes clean and odor free.

Most people don’t have time to do a load of laundry every time they go to the gym. Try keeping gym clothes in a separate laundry basket, and sprinkle them with baking soda to help remove odor. Sprinkling baking soda inside your gym back will also help cut down on odors, and prevent your work out clothes from getting stinky before you even wear them.

A lot of work out clothes are made with quick drying material. If you’re worried about not having enough work out clothes, or you prefer not to leave smelly laundry hanging around, quickly hand wash work out clothes.

A quick soak in a bucket of hot water with baking soda and vinegar, or some detergent, will rinse away sweat and odors. Just hang the clothes to dry and you’re ready to go.
