I must admit, I don't spend very much money on clothes and shoes. But when I do buy them, I try to invest in quality pieces that will last. This includes my athletic wear and fitness gear.
Since I do spend a fair amount of money on my athletic wear, I find there is nothing more frustrating than having pieces with odors that won't come out! Today I want to share a few tips that help me rejuvenate and keep my athletic wear fresh.
Air them out.
One major thing that has been helpful for releasing odors from my athletic wear is to air them out. In the past, I would simply toss my sweaty gear in the hamper with the other clothes. But what I've learned is, by putting my sweaty clothes balled up into the hamper I was allowing the odors to sink in and create even more odors.
Now I try to wash my sweaty clothes right away if I can. If not I hang them up or lay them flat to allow them to dry out a little before putting them in the dirty clothes hamper. This tip makes a world of difference.
Use a powerful laundry detergent.
If you have athletic wear that you are having a tough time releasing odors from try using a more powerful laundry detergent. Sometimes regular detergent just isn't strong enough for sweaty sunk in odors.
Recently I've had the opportunity to try out Persil ProClean 2 in 1 laundry detergent on my athletic wear to help remove tough odors. Persil ProClean uses Pro-Power™ Technology to help remove tough odors and stains.
Persil ProClean 2 in 1 laundry detergent was also rated #1 for use on smelly workout clothes by a leading consumer testing publication (PersilProClean.com). I also like that this product is very affordable. Use this coupon to get a discount on your Persil ProClean purchase. I picked mine up at my local grocery store in the detergent aisle.
Wash a smaller load.
I know I'm the main one who tries to fit as many clothes as I can in one load. However, when you have clothes in which you are trying to remove odors or stains from, this is not ideal. When there are too many clothes in the washer the detergent and water can't agitate them as well they would with a smaller load. To fix this I try to do a separate load with only athletic wear.
I have found this works very well to remove odors. I also like to use cold water when washing smaller loads to save money and energy. I find my clothes get just as clean.
So there you have it friends, a few ways I rejuvenate and keep my athletic wear fresh.
Can you add any tips to this list? I'll take all I can get.
