Dri-FIT workout clothes are heaven sent for regular gym goers and athletes. Gone now, are the cotton days when your shirt will soak up your sweat until it was drenching wet. Dri-FIT wicking gym clothes consist of a microfiber and polyester fabric designed to move your sweat from your skin to the outer side of the garment as opposed to regular materials which keep the sweat directly on your body. This revolutionary feature makes it easier for the sweat to evaporate altogether. Thus, you can stay dry and have a lower body temperature for longer.
However, the downside of using Dri-FIT apparel is that it tends to smell pretty nasty, if you don’t wash it properly. Washing Dri-FIT clothes thoroughly can be tricky, yet there are a few tips on how to properly clean and remove odors from workout clothes:
1. Don’t Use Bleach
Bleaching your moisture-wick gym clothes will just fade the colors and not do much of anything for the stench. Bleach should be avoided even for white Dri-FIT garments. The harsh chemical will weaken the materials over time so that instead of wicking gym clothes just getting clean, they’re also being worn out faster.
2. Don’t Use Fabric Softeners
The extra chemicals and fragrance particles found in fabric softeners can clog the fibers of moisture-wicking gym clothes, thus limiting their capacity to wick away sweat and prevent odors. So when it comes to washing Dri-FIT clothes, it’s always better to use unscented special detergents like those offered by OdorKlenz Laundry. These surfactants will not only keep your moisture-wicking gym clothes clean and odor-free, but they can also make them last longer.
3. Wash Them in Cold Water
This is very important to avoid destroying the materials of your Dri-FIT clothes. Hot water will cause the gentle materials’ to deteriorate, so if you are using hot water currently, you should not expect the fabric to last long. If you can’t wash it in cold water, you should consider hand-washing them instead. No matter how inconvenient it may seem, it is imperative to keep your moisture-wicking gym clothes in tip-top shape.
4. Wash Them Separately
It’s always ideal to wash your Dri-FIT workout clothes and regular clothes separately from the rest of your laundry. It’s especially important to separate them from jeans or other clothing items with zippers or buttons because the zippers may damage your gym clothes.
5. Use Special Detergents
Regular detergents are designed to deal with mild odors and not the strong smells often accumulated in workout clothes. Those regular cleansers don’t remove odors from workout clothes; they just mask them with artificial fragrances. That’s why workout clothes washed with regular detergents start smelling again just minutes after putting them on.
To avoid this, you need to use special detergent additives that are specifically designed to remove strong body odors from workout clothes. OdorKlenz Laundry provides us with powder or liquid detergent additives that can remove tough odors and stains from Dri-Fit workout clothes and other apparel used in working out or exercise.
The key to properly washing Dri-FIT clothes is using the right detergents and water temperature. It’s also important to clean them right after you wear them. Leaving them in your gym bag for days will cause your clothes to deteriorate more quickly, plus, you’ll have a not-so-pleasant surprise when you open the bag!
