Are you a little stinky?
I mean when you’re working out day after day do your clothes start to smell? Maybe, even before you put them on?
Well, Stacy and I used everything over the years to try to keep our clothes smelling fresh and clean.
Now, I’m not saying Stacy and I are stinky after we train, but when you wear the same clothes over and over again, training every day, you can gather a little funk in those favorite workout clothes. Just saying!
Let’s see… we’ve tried numerous detergents, the additive packs the different detergents sell in addition to the regular stuff that “guarantees” smell to come out. Yeah right.
We’ve tried the sports detergents even the really expensive stuff that comes in a small bottle and pretty much does everything but make your workout clothes smell better.
We have come full circle to one of the most inexpensive, yet best ways to keep your gym clothes fresh and odor free!
Thanks to Team Trinity member, Levette Bagwell and some research, we found that by simply adding ½ - 1 cup white distilled vinegar to your wash, in addition to your detergent, it will get the stink out.
And for those of you out there with a workout schedule like ours, try Costco for extra-large bottles of vinegar. Much cheaper and in bulk!
Who knew that this easy to find cooking product would turn out to rid odor?
Try it. You won’t be sorry. And neither will the folks in your group exercise class. 🙂
Start Strong, Finish Stronger!

Those are great pointers! Another way to stay fresh is the choice of the gear you’re wearing.
Everyone loves the 100% polyester/moisture wicking/moisture management shirts these days. When purchasing these materials, be sure to look on the tag to see if it’s had a anti microbial treatment. These will kill any germs that form from workouts which cause the problems. Cheaper versions of these materials are not treated, and will smell terrible after the first wash. So, MAKE SURE what you’re buying says ANTI-Microbial!
