Taking good care of your workout clothes and getting rid of that unpleasant smell can be a real challenge sometimes, especially for people who work out every day. Here are a few effective tips for removing those bad odors from your gym clothes.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is one of the ingredients that are great for getting rid of all those unpleasant odors coming from our workout clothes. Just add baking soda to your laundry to remove the smell, or soak them in a baking soda solution overnight.

White Vinegar and Lemon Juice

White vinegar and lemon juice are also effective at absorbing bad odors and killing bacteria. Add a little white vinegar or lemon juice to your wash or soak your smelly clothes in a white vinegar solution for only 15 minutes.

Don’t Sit Around

It can be tempting to stay in gym clothes after you’re done with a workout, but this is exactly what makes them even more sweaty and smelly. Changing clothes after a workout and washing them immediately is the best way to prevent bad odors.
