When do you wash your clothes ?

I usually train later at nights, either at 5 or 7 p.m. , come home, manage to quickly dry out the stuff on the balcony, so i can shove it back in my bag in the morning. Since i train almost every day, i just change the towels but dont seem to have time to wash my shorts or shirt. Just wondering, when do u wash your clothes ?

Re: When do you wash your clothes ?

I have 4 pairs of gym shorts, wash when they are all dirty. Usually only one wearing per pair, given the warm climate and my excessive sweatyness. One or two shirts per workout and one sweat towel.

I sweat like a whore in church on Sunday, so I don't ever re-wear anything. When the laundry is full (or I'm running out of workout clothes) it's time to fire up the washer. I have at least a dozen different pairs of shorts I wear, and twice as many t-shirts, so I could conceivably almost make it two weeks without washing. I always lay things out to dry before tossing them in the laundry hamper though; otherwise the smell is just unbearable after a few days.

Re: When do you wash your clothes ?

I wash my close when they are dirty. Just kidding. as already said, I have more then one pair of shorts and cycle through them and as for shirts I wear what ever because it will be taken off soon enough.

Usually go 2-3 workouts on a pair of shorts, change shirts every day

I wash after every WOD. I sweat too much to re-wear anything.

Re: When do you wash your clothes ?

I workout at lunch time so I store almost all of my gym clothes at my office (as well as my jump rope, shin guards, and most of my athletic shoes). After every workout they go into a hamper that I bought and they go home with my every Friday religiously. I have probably 8 pairs of shorts and 12 shirts I cycle through. I can't wear anything more than once because I sweat like mad.

Nothing worse than someone that smells of sweat in the gym... you know that old smell that makes your eyes water.

We had two people we had to tell to wash their clothes or leave... i mean they stunk...

I use my clothes once and then wash them but with no softner only washing powder. Softner will ruin the clothes.

Re: When do you wash your clothes ?

I have enough shirts to last probably last a week and a half without washing. Shorts I only own maybe 4 pairs so I might repeat every now and again, but typically it's every 3 or 4 days I'm washing it all.
