  • Rank WO clothing

    Sort of a weird question but, i have a few pairs of WO gear that i use that reek really bad after i WO in them, while in others with the same material, it is not bad. I tried making a correlation with the fabrics but as you can see they don't all produce the same output. I usually don't have bad BO (although i am not claiming to smell like roses after a WO). Has anyone found any fabrics that are better for decreasing smell? Any cleaners/detergents work best to prevent this?

    Thanks guys and gals.

    A fire pit?

    I have 50% poly and 50% cotton thirts and find that I sweat less in them.

      I had some issues for awhile when I lived in WI and was doing a lot of marathon training + wearing sweat-wicking clothing. I picked up a bottle of Win detergent and despite the higher pricetag, it got rid of the lingering BO that regular detergents just couldn't get.

      Nowadays I just add oxyclean to my laundry in addition to detergent. You could always give that a try too.

          Oh boy..in my first ever gym', a gentleman who was in the SAS (he had written a book on his escapades) was the sweatyist man I have ever seen. He poured with sweat constantly, EVERYWHERE. Not only did he not clean equipment after he used it, but he smelt of shit ( imagine rotten death), he used to train in his clothes..sweat in them badly and then just put them in his bag, NOT wash them and then wear them again. We all complained to staff about his pools of sweat on benches/over the dumbells and on floors - he didn't give a shit.
          (I mentioned his SAS involvement because I thought he would of been expected to be clean n tidy with them thus teaching him how to not smell like dead carcas..alas no)

            I don't wear cotton anymore unless I have to because it ends up smelling of ammonia and I hate it. It won't smell until I start to sweat in it. Hats are just as bad and I end up throwing them away after awhile.

            I have found that UA and Nike dry fit doesn't stink no matter how much you sweat in them so I use dry fit shirts and shorts and never have a problem anymore.

                    So true. My GF just went on a spring cleaning rampage of throwing away some of my gym hats that have 'The Funk' to them. Probably for the best, seeing as a few times I've gone to the gym and wondered who the stinky kid was.....:painkiller:
                    I guess this just means new hat shopping for me

                      Maybe it's an individual body chemistry thing: cotton works better for me than synthetics. The wicking, UA type shirts tend to get stinky.

                      What works for me is training clean to being with, and then trashing the old favorites when they start to hold the funk. Easier said than done, but who wants to be the stinky kid.

                          I am sure there is something to be said about diet because ketosis would tend to cause more of an ammonia smell to the sweat. I even used more detergent and they smell awesome out of the wash ... right up until I start to sweat and everything goes to shit. lol

                            Same here skip. Cotton shirts seem great out of the dryer, but the funk is water activated!

                              It's bacteria, right? And yeah, definitely water activated!
                              Soaking in near boiling water will kill it, so will bleach or anti bacterial detergent.
                              But prevention is better than cure. Always wash your gym gear on hot!
                              If at first you don't succeed... Try doing what Skip told you to do the first time.
