    I usually just use a hell load more of detergent in my clothes. Though it may be wasteful, at least it keeps the smells away.

    Couldn’t care less lolz.
    Even if the newly washed clothes do smell,they are only discernable to the wearer (aka your highness), and they are meant to be worn ONLY during workout. And guess what, when I work out, my body sweaty “frangrance” would have overpowered it anyway.

    Hey, that’s my mum’s tips as well. Soak those sweaty shirts in a bucket of water before washing.

    In my case, it affects my cotton shirts as well, so it’s not true that this only applies for those polyester, dry-fit material.

    Win works fantastic. Much better than the Penguin.

    I use it for my golf clothes, work out clothes, any clothes that have wicking fabric. We have used it on pet odors too. My friend used it on hockey clothes and it worked great.

    Stuff makes a difference.

    Mun, try hanging out your sweat soaked clothes as soon as you can to dry first before you wash them. In fact, under the fan will do. The smell comes from ammonia (part of the chemical constituent of our sweat) but mainly from the germs that multiply. Drying out first will reduce and stop the germ multiplication. Or when you wash throw in some white vinegar or even cider vinegar. Try also Dettol. The classical Dettol or the Dettol for clothes The latter is basically Dettol with nicer colour and lesser Dettol smell.

    I burst into laughter when I read this. I don’t think you need a different detergent for the clothes

    I have used Win. It worked okay, and I think it was better that regular detergents. I agree that soaking clothes first is the way to go. This makes a difference. I have since moved to Charlies Soap Powder for work out clothes. I will be using it for everything once I use up my regular detergents.

    I was still having problems with the stuff I couldn’t put in the washing machine, like my gym bag or my tennis shoes.

    I tried a product called Febreze SPORT

    I really like it and it gets rid or the musty, yucky smell.
    Has anyone else tried this?
