9 Things You Don’t Know About Washing Your Gym Clothes

Apartment Therapy knows there’s no space in an apartment for smelly gym clothes. But do you really know how to wash those clothes and keep the odors away? If you use the decades-old products and laundry habits on your technical fabrics, you’ll soon find a lingering smell in your gym clothes that just won’t go away.

That’s why you need to replace your fabric softener with HEX Fabric Booster and use HEX Detergent for all your workout wear!

Tricks For Washing Workout Gear

Use a Specially Formulated Sports Detergent

As Apartment Therapy puts it, “Sportswear-specific laundry detergents exist for a reason.” We built HEX Performance because we understood the problem associated with cleaning these modern athletic fabrics. “Detergents such as HEX Performance attack the bacteria that grows on your gym clothes directly—removing the true source of bad odors (and the potential stains they leave behind) head-on.”

Stay Away From Fabric Softener

When odors linger on workout clothes, you might be tempted to add extra fabric softener and scent boosters to help hide the stink. But as Apartment Therapy discovered, “fabric softener— both in liquid form and dryer sheets— can damage stretchy fabrics and create a coating on your clothes that actually traps smells.” The solution? Dump the softener, and “try out a rinse booster like this one from HEX Performance for athletic gear designed to replace fabric softener and reduce static cling.”
