How to Get the Smell Out of Workout Clothes
If you exercise regularly, you probably notice that over time your workout clothes start to get a certain “funk” to them, even after washing them.
I’m not going to lie…
My workout clothes stink!!
My husband and I practice hot yoga 2-3 times per week, and are careful to wash our yoga clothes and towels right away. However, they still started to get a weird smell to them after a while.
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve put on “clean” yoga clothes only to discover that they smell like I just finished a workout. And when you’re packed into a crowded yoga class, you don’t want to be stinky!
How to Get Sweat Smell Out of Gym Clothes & Yoga Gear (in 3 Steps)
After an hour of exercise in a 100° yoga studio, everything from our towels to clothing is literally soaked in sweat.
Since normal laundry detergent doesn’t quite cut it for removing sweat smell from workout clothes, we added FunkAway Laundry Detergent Booster to our routine.
FunkAway is unique in that it doesn’t just mask smells – it eliminates them!
As soon as we get home from yoga class, we take our damp clothes to the laundry room. That’s when FunkAway works its magic…in just 3 easy steps!
1. Mist dirty clothes with FunkAway Aerospray until damp.
If you don’t have time to wash your clothes right away, that’s ok. FunkAway Aerospray starts working immediately to neutralize odors until you’re able to do laundry.
I was actually amazed at just how well the aerospray works — our stinky gym clothes smelled better immediately. Literally as soon as the spray hit fabric, it started working!
2. Add FunkAway Laundry Detergent Booster to Washing Machine
When you’re ready to wash your workout clothes, place them in the washing machine drum and add your regular detergent to the soap dispenser.
Next, add a capful (or two for super smelly gear) of FunkAway Laundry Detergent Booster to the dispenser with your regular detergent.
3. Wash and dry as you normally would
Getting the smell out of yoga clothes doesn’t take any extra effort if you use the odor-eliminating power of FunkAway! There’s no scrubbing or pre-washing — just spray, wash, and go!
For best results, wash your yoga clothes and towels as soon as possible after using them. However, if you’re in a hurry you can spray them with the FunkAway Aerospray so it will start breaking down odors until you have time to run a laundry cycle.
TIP: You can also use FunkAway Aerospray on your yoga bag and blocks (non-cork blocks) – they start to get smelly over time too!
How Does FunkAway Work?
The secret lies in FunkAway’s proprietary OM Complex™ — this unique formula breaks down odors at the molecular level until they are completely gone!
Instead of perfumed sprays that simply mask odors, FunkAway totally eliminates them. All you smell is clean!
