You may be washing your workout clothes the wrong way. But don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I’ll show you the secrets of how your workout clothing should be washed.
Now, I’m not telling you that you do not know how to do laundry, it’s just that workout clothing is generally made of synthetics. Synthetics are a newer fabric and not everyone knows how to launder this type of fabric. In fact, following old habits could cause these clothing items to wear faster and even damage them.
There are many new things that do not need to be used or can be replaced or even simply forgotten when it comes to washing clothes. Many people do not realize that they do not need half the stuff they are using in the laundry room.
1. Do Not Use Dryer Sheets
Dryer sheets were made for an earlier time in life. This was when washing machines were harder on clothes and the fabrics were also rough as well. This is before synthetic clothing was being made. Dryer sheets should be replaced with dryer balls.
2. Do not Use Fabric Softener on Synthetic Fabrics
Fabric softeners are known to leave a film on the clothing. This is especially true for synthetic clothing. Fabric softeners were made for older fabrics just like dryer sheets were. When a person uses fabric softener on synthetics it leaves a smell on the fabric. To avoid this problem simply skip the softener.
3. Do Not Use Traditional Detergent
Many people have used the same detergents for years and use it on all their clothing. This now needs to change because traditional detergent can actually clog the synthetic fibers. This means they are not being cleaned but being masked. There are specific detergents that can be used on synthetics and you should look for this next time you are shopping.

4. Do Not Overfill the Dryer/ Do Not Use High Heat
When you add too many clothes to a dryer it not only can add to the time it takes to try but actually damage the clothing because it is likely the heat is being turned to high. High heat can cause damage to many fabrics and even shrink them. Try air-drying certain fabrics and if that is not an option, use low heat. Lastly, run smaller loads in the dryer.
5. Clean the Washing Machine
Residue is bound to build up if the washing machine is getting general use. It is important to clean the lid, seal, as well as the dispensers as these areas can cause some funky smells. Use a brush or cloth to clean these areas. Plus, use an anti-odor detergent to help prevent future odors.
6. Do Not Add Fragrance Beads
When a person adds these new fragrance beads to their laundry, they may feel like they are having extra clean clothes. However, these beads just mask the smell. They do not actually clean the item. Use your detergent and skip the fragrance beads altogether.
