Best Laundry Detergent For Work Out Clothes
As the weather begins to warm up so begins the outdoor running season and the strong push to get in shape for beach season?
A question we often get on our website is what is the best laundry detergent for workout clothes?
First, let's go into what contributes to the odors in your workout clothes
DriFit technology has become increasingly popular and in case you are unfamiliar with it is a high-performance, microfiber, polyester fabric that moves sweat away from the body and to the fabric surface, where it evaporates.
Athletes love using Dri-FIT because it keeps them dry and comfortable but the gear takes a big beating hoarding the sweat odors and smells making it quite the challenge to remove and bring your clothing back to life.
What is commonly overlooked by those who use DriFit technology is that the whole you are working out you're sweating in your clothing at a higher rate than you normally would, and since the clothing was designed to absorb and retain the sweat it is also absorbing all the dead skin cells and oils that slough off your body when you exercise, which are commonly associated with body and sweat odors.
Detergent Do's and Donts when deodorizing your workout Clothes!
The cardinal sin we often see our Customer commit when trying to remove sweat odors from their workout clothes is adding extra detergent to the wash to compensate for the odors.
In this case more is not better and adding extra detergent to your gym clothes will actually make it worse.
You are probably scratching your head wondering why a simple way of looking at it is your washing machine was built with a standard cycle that's was actually designed to handle an exact or specified amount of detergent.
Anything more than the required or suggested amount will not get washed out and all residual detergent will make a home on your workout clothes, which may result in sealing in the sweat bacteria (odor causing bacteria),dead skin and creating an in some case fungus.
This may get the light bulbs going off in your head,if you notice that your workout clothes or towels have a musty or funky smell its more than likely mildew, which feeds off soap as well as dead skin debris.
