To help you take better care of your beloved gym clothes, we have broken down some of the best things you can do to keep your workout gear looking and feeling fresh and extend its lifespan.

Separate your laundry correctly

Separate your sportswear from the rest of the clothes you plan to wash. Sort them out by color: dark go with dark, colored go with colored, and white go with white. Then turn your clothes inside-out to give them a deeper clean and safeguard colors.

Choose a sportswear-specific detergent

Sportswear-specific laundry detergent exists for a reason – it’s formulated to fight away natural odor and deep clean moisture-wicking fabrics and synthetic materials. Reach for a more delicate detergent that is generally free of harsh chemicals like bleach, phosphates, or enzymes that can damage and break down certain fabrics but still get the job done.

Choose the right temperature

Wash your sportswear in colder water – around 20°C or 30°C. Hot water might hurt your gym clothes more than it could help, as extreme heat can actually break down the elasticity and lead to shrinkage and a shorter lifespan for your clothes.

Remove stains and smells

For stains, opt for handwashing with a special detergent and gently dab the stain with a sponge. To remove smells, you can always count on a good odor eliminator or try an anti-odor spray, to keep your gym gear smelling fresh for longer. For an all-natural odor remover, you can put half a cup of white vinegar into your wash’s rinse cycle. Goodbye stains and smells!
