Three tips for washing dry-fit workout clothes

Workout clothes have it rough. Your routine pushes your body and your clothes to the limit, leaving them sweaty and smelly. Keeping your clothes fresh might seem like a challenge, but with these three tips you’ll be a superstar in the gym.

Tip 1: Read the tag

Not all clothes follow the same rules for laundry time. Some clothes need to be hand-washed, some may need to be hung to dry, and some might go in the washer and dryer without a care in the world. Don’t just guess; read the label.

Tip 2: Wash the odors away

Workout odors can be nose-scrunchingly tough to deal with. That’s why you should use a detergent like Tide PODS® Febreze Odor Defense. It will wash away the odors so the only memories of hot yoga you’ll have are the sore glutes.

Tip 3: Dealing with dry-fit clothing

So, you love the scent of Downy®, but your active-wear with dry-fit technology says you can’t use fabric softener. That’s when you should reach for Downy Fresh Protect April Fresh. You’ll get the classic Downy fragrance combined with the motion-activated odor shield from Fresh Protect, and you won’t affect your fabric’s ability to stay dry.
