how to wash old, dirty, smelly, stinky, sweaty gym bags

  1. Make sure your gym bag has washable fabrics. Check the washing instructions on the label. Avoid washing leather.
  2. Clean out every pocket, corner, and crevice.
  3. Turn the gym bag inside out.
  4. Remove, cinch or tie up straps to prevent them from getting tangled.
  5. Put the dirty gym bag in a mesh washing bag. This minimizes damage to your washing machine.
  6. Toss mesh bag in the wash with towels of a similar color to prevent color bleed or lint balls.
  7. Wash gym bag on regular cycle with HEX Detergent and cold water only. The cold water is important because fabrics like canvas can shrink up in hot water.
  8. After washing, reshape the bag as best you can. Use towels or newspaper to help dry hold its shape while it dries.
  9. Leave out to air dry. Do not put your gym bags in the dryer!
  10. Love your gym bag again.
