There are so many benefits of working out regularly, but keeping your activewear clean can be tricky. First, choose garments with clear and easy care instructions for technical fabrics. First, never use fabric softeners or dryer sheets —coating the fibers prevents wicking. Wash in cold water to prevent fading. Presoak with a cup of white vinegar to break down residual body aroma. If you don’t have time to wash, hang your gear in natural sunlight to deter bacterial growth. Avoid the dryer, the heat breaks down elasticity and the technical function of your garments.
