How to Remove Sweat Smell From Your Workout Clothes?

If you love working out and you try to go to the gym as often as possible then you probably have one big issue – removing the stubborn sweat odour from your workout clothes. I know that in some cases no matter how many times you wash the clothing items, they still smell terrible.

I love working out and I have had the same problem in the past which is why I decided to start researching and figuring out exactly how to deal with that terrible smell. I have a few pairs of gym clothes and I don’t intend on investing in more so I had to learn how to remove the smell.

And, of course, I am going to share all of my secrets with you today!

How To Remove Sweat Smell From Your Workout Clothes?

The first thing I want you to keep in mind is that you should always separate your smelly workout clothes from your regular laundry. Otherwise, even your non-smelly clothes will start having that sweat odour.

And now that you know this, let me tell you how I remove the sweat odour. I simply fill a bucket with water and vinegar then I soak the smelly clothes in there for a few hours. Sometimes, I even let them sit overnight if they are really smelly!

Then I just throw them in the washing machine and wash them as usual. But again, I do not mix them with my normal laundry – I wash them separately!

If you really hate vinegar and you do not want to use it, you can also mix water with baking soda in a bucket then soak the clothes in there overnight as well. Baking soda is incredible in absorbing smells and liquids!

And then just wash as usual!
