    Properties of Anti-Odor Clothes

    Clothing can be manufactured to repel or reduce body odor in several ways. In some cases, fabrics are treated with antimicrobial technology to prevent the growth or spread of odor-causing bacteria and microbes. Agents like silver and copper are commonly used because of their natural antimicrobial properties.

    Additionally, moisture-wicking fabrics can help reduce odor. They do this by drawing sweat away from your body and through the fabric so it can evaporate. This wicking action helps keep your body dry and prevents bacteria from interacting with sweat to produce body odor. Quick-drying or breathable fabrics are also helpful in expediting sweat evaporation.

    Ways to Remove Odor from Workout Clothes

    Have you ever noticed that sometimes your workout clothes still smell, even after you’ve washed them? We’ve collected a few laundering tips to help you keep your athletic clothes smelling fresh.

    1. The best way to remove odor from smelly workout clothes is to wash them right away. This prevents the bacteria from settling into the fabric and worsening the smell.
    2. Avoid using fabric softener. While fabric softener can make everyday clothes smell and feel better, it actually traps bacteria inside your clothes. It can also affect the fabric’s ability to absorb sweat, which is not good.
    3. Use the recommended amount of laundry detergent. Too much can create a build-up of detergent, bacteria, and odor in the fabric. It also makes it more difficult for the water to penetrate the fabric and rinse away the buildup. You may want to check out our list of the best laundry detergents made to combat odor.
    4. If you can't wash your stinky workout clothes immediately, allow them to air dry before putting them in the hamper. This prevents the other clothes from taking on the smell of the sweat-soaked workout apparel.

    If you experience body odor outside of the gym, there are many clothing options to help you manage. Sweat-wicking fabrics, anti-odor fabrics, breathable fabrics, and sweat-absorbing clothing make living with body odor easier than ever.
