Use scent-free de­ter­gent

They may smell nice, but de­ter­gents with scents, per­fumes, soft­en­ers, or ad­di­tives can leave residue on your clothes af­ter they come out of the wash­ing ma­chine, which can even­tu­ally de­grade the fab­ric of your clothes. This can cause a break­down in your clothes’ per­for­mance at­tributes and wick­ing abil­ity, and ac­tu­ally cause foul odour.

Separate your shoes and ap­par­els

Plac­ing your sneak­ers and yoga pants and tank in dif­fer­ent bags within your gym tote to min­i­mize the spread of odour-caus­ing bac­te­ria. “Look for spe­cific bags that has separate com­part­ments that al­low you to store your shoes away from the rest of your gym clothes,” she says.

Buy anti-stink clothes

When pos­si­ble, opt for cloth­ing that in­cludes poly­giene tech­nol­ogy, which uses nat­u­ral sil­ver salt in low con­cen­tra­tions to pre­vent bac­te­ria from mul­ti­ply­ing—and help your clothes stay fresh and odour-free.

Hang it up

Don’t just toss your sop­ping-wet sports bra and shorts into the ham­per. Hang any wet gear up to dry, even if it’s just over the back­seat of your car.
