One of the unfortunate outcomes of stress and sweat is the sour smell that results from the combination of the two. What’s worse is when the unpleasant odor lingers on your clothes, even after they are washed. It can be even more frustrating when you’ve spent a pretty penny on sweat proof undergarments that are designed to keep you dry and fresh.
While the silver infused fabric of Ejis products is extremely helpful in fighting odor causing bacteria, they may accumulate odor over time. The residual smell does not necessarily mean it’s time to retire your sweat proof undergarments. They may just need to be refreshed; kind of like a PC that requires the occasional restart or reboot process.
We’ve compiled a list of laundry hacks and suggestions to refresh your sour smelling clothes. Try these tips for washing your laundry, especially sweaty undergarments, to keep them smelling fresh.
Remove smelly, sweaty clothes and turn them inside out to air out.
In addition to treating your clothes for odor, make sure your washing machine is clean.

Experts suggest cleaning your washing machine every six months so the smells don’t transfer from the washer to your freshly laundered clothes.
Clean your washing machine so the smells don't transfer to your clothes.
