I also found during the summer my stuff will get nasty just sitting in the car all day, I work out before work. And I even had some problems with them stinking even after washing. They'd be totally fine until I'd get warmed up and it was like the first drop of sweat just unleashed a massive stink bomb. I had to start dumping baking soda on worth loads and even soaked some particularly nasty shirts in vinegar

During the warm months, on occasions when I can't just throw clothes straight in the washer, I usually lay the dirty clothes out in the back of my pick-up. The sunlight dries them out, and kills enough bacteria that when I leave for the day, they are dry and stench-free enough to pack up.

As a general rule, though, I don't let the sweaty clothes sit in the hamper for more than a day.

I can not re-wear stuff I have been wearing during a workout, wether it is CrossFit, biking or jogging.... And they will "smell" even if I did not sweat that much... But I do have to wash and clean them after using them.

Looking for some tips on how to wash away the stains, since sport fabric should not be washed over 30C.

My UA white underwear have a bit of stains on the "common" place and I cant get rid of it, tried google tips with vinegar, etc..no success.

I know I should only wear them once, but for this I am too late...will do so in the future...

When they don't pass the smell test. Roughly once a week and usually air dry most stuff.

Then again, not really sweating that much because you know...Weightlifting and it's been cold/cooler.

Again, must pass the smell test. Kinda silly to take a shower and come to the gym clean and smell like ***.
