Your New Year’s resolution to work out more may make “laundry day” a bit dirtier and smellier… but that isn’t an excuse to break it! Here are a few tips to clean your sporting gear and keep them fresh while you get healthy in the New Year.
Fight sweat stains. The classic, low-tech cotton tees may be the comfiest workout shirts. But they do tend to absorb sweat and may well show sweat stains. To combat this, turn your shirt inside out and pre-treat the underarm areas with Dynamo Power Gel.
Use the right detergent. Try using a detergent that’s specifically formulated to handle tough stains like grass, dirt, clay, and blood while also eliminating odor. Dynamo Power Gel has the best stain removal power for your gear.
Don’t wait to wash. Don’t leave your sportswear in a duffel bag after a workout or game. Since bacteria love to grow in moist places, make sure that your sportswear dries as quickly and efficiently as possible, even if you’re planning to wash it later. If it’s a sunny day, move equipment outside so that it dries faster.
Refresh your gym bag with dryer sheets. Your gym bag can start to retain the odors of the workout gear inside it. Place a couple of dryer sheets in your bag for a quick and easy fix that will keep it smelling fresh.
