HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR WORKOUT WEAR
Like most people, you probably don't overthink how to care for your workout clothes. But if you've invested in quality gear, it's worth a little extra time to ensure it lasts.
Gym clothes can have an unpleasant odor because of the bacteria, skin cells, and salt left behind when you work out. But there’s another cause for those sweat stains - sebum!
Wearing performance fabrics is great for staying cool and giving you a good range of motion in the gym, but once your workout ends, those clothes become odor-magnets. If they're not washed quickly enough or left on their own accord, bacteria can grow, causing odors to linger, worsening over time if not dealt with immediately.
Wash them in cold water to get your performance wear clean, smelling fresh, and odor-free. This way, you can avoid meltdowns caused by synthetic fibers that attract sweat stains, plus minimize the amount of odors generated from these fabric types!
Here are some simple tips that will keep your workout clothes looking and feeling great:
-Wash your workout clothes immediately after use. This will help to remove bacteria and sweat that can cause lingering smells.
-If possible, wash workout clothes in cold water. Hot water can break down the fabric of some workout gear.
-Hang workout clothes to dry, or use a low heat setting on the tumble dryer. High heat can damage workout clothes.
-Avoid using fabric softener on workout clothes. Fabric softener can leave a residue that can trap bacteria and cause odors.
-Don't mix workout clothes with other items in the laundry. Wash them separately to avoid lint transfer.
-Store workout clothes in a cool, dry place. Heat and humidity can cause workout clothes to deteriorate more quickly.
The best solution is to hang clothes to dry. It will help maintain their shape and keep them from getting too hot, which could cause shrinking or loss of elasticity in materials like cotton! If you have no choice but to use a high-heat setting for short periods (less than 20 minutes), try doing it outdoors with limited ventilation nearby to avoid damaging either one beyond repair.
Experts strongly advise against putting booths near windows because moisture can accumulate when air conditioning systems filter out liquids such as rainwater before releasing fresh.
By following these tips, you can extend the life of your workout clothes and ensure they're always ready for your next workout.
These simple tips can keep your workout clothes looking and feeling great for longer. So don't neglect your gear - take care of what it deserves!
