How To Get The Stink Out Of Workout Clothes

I am going to start this post with a confession: I don’t glisten when I work out–I sweat buckets. After three miles of running my clothes are as wet as if they just came out of the washing machine.

Second confession: my sweat smells–and it isn’t a pretty smell. I read somewhere that this means my body is good at releasing toxins. However, those smelly toxins leave an odor on my workout clothes that regular detergents just don’t seem to get rid of.

How to get the stink out of your workout clothes. This is so simple!

Up until recently this meant I purchased workout clothing for as inexpensively as possible and then tossed them every four to six months.

Even though I rarely pay more than $5 a workout shirt and $10 for workout Capris, this tossing habit seemed less than thrifty and, well…I am a thrifty person.

Now, I had been told that vinegar in the rinse would do the trick. As an all-natural loving gal, I gave this super green and thrifty tip a try–it did nothing.

How To Get The Stink Out Of Workout Clothes

I tried a few more DIY ideas which all flopped and decided I would just have to live with frequently tossing my workout clothes-that is, until I stumbled upon this product. I honestly didn’t think it would get rid of the odor either since it had such mixed reviews in the review section, but it wasn’t that expensive and I knew if it worked it would certainly save me some money in the long run.

Because I was so apprehensive I will admit that I used double the recommended amount of product.

When the product arrived I gathered up all my workout gear–both dirty and clean–and did two loads worth with it.

I hung all my workout gear to drive like I usually do–I read somewhere that this helps dri-wick materials stay more effective and hey, I sweat a lot so I need them to be as effective as possible.

Oh and it was storming the day I did this so I set up my drying rack (similar to this one) in the upstairs hallway.

I then did the smell test and all but three items from those two loads of laundry were free of the smell of my stinky sweat. And those three items were the oldest in the two loads.

So what is this product? Molly’s Suds Sport Wash. It is non-toxic, all ingredients are FDA’s GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). Probably not 100% green, but as green of a solution as I have currently found that works to get rid of sweat smell in workout clothing.

Now that I have figured out that it works, my plan is to do my workout clothes this way at least once a month. Next month I will try using just one cap full like the instructions state–if that doesn’t work as well I will go back to two caps full per load. Still, even if I have to use 2 caps full instead of one, Molly’s Suds Sport Wash will be cheaper and more environmentally friendly than what I have been doing and that makes this green and thrifty gal very happy.

MobiSave is a grocery cash back app that offers something I haven’t seen others offer–it has no cash out threshold. This means that if you save $0.40 on your groceries using it one day, you will get your $.040 back in the form of a Paypal deposit within 48 hours.

No waiting to earn $5 or more before you can cash out. This is awesome for those who don’t buy huge amounts of groceries each month–and for those who do.

Earn cash back on your groceries with MobiSave. You can use this money saving app no matter where you buy your groceries--even ALDI.

 

Another thing I love about MobiSave is that it consistently offers several non brand-specific deals. Just the other week I used it at ALDI on their store brand ketchup, pickles and chips.

One other benefit of the MobiSave app is that you can use it wherever you buy groceries–and it is really simple to do so.

What deals MobiSave has to offer varies, but there are usually at least a few non brand-specific ones like the ones for bread and apples seen in the picture above.

Pick out the items on your grocery list and then go shopping.

It takes just a few seconds to claim a cash back with MobiSave.

When you get home from shopping, make sure to upload a picture of your receipt into the MobiSave app. I found this process to be fairly simple using the tips given by MobiSave in the “redeem” tab of the app (the one with the camera icon).

As soon as your receipt is verified, your cash back value will be deposited in your PayPal account. If you don’t have a PayPal account yet, it is very simple to set one up.

3 Things I am LOVING Lately: September 14

3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

So there is a reason this post is going up late today–I forgot it was Wednesday already. I blame it on my redhead runner. She had a day off work yesterday so we ran later than we normally do on weekday mornings and it threw me for a loop. Yep I am tossing the redhead runner under the bus–sadly it isn’t the first time.

First thing I am LOVING Lately…

My giveaway box for the month is already full.

I am so excited about how quickly I have been able to fill my September giveaway box! You might have already seen me share it in my Facebook decluttering group or on the Snail Pace Transformations Facebook page. I just can’t keep myself from sharing it all over the place.

Why! Because guys I am suddenly finding it a lot easier to toss, toss and toss. I have been reading The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own and I don’t know why, but something about the advice of the author just clicked with me. I have read dozens of books on decluttering and minimalist living and came away with 1000’s of great ideas and put very few of them to work. But this book is like having a friend hold your hand and say, hey lets deal with this for good shall we. It is more counsel and less drill sergeant.

Second Thing I am LOVING Lately…

A new coloring book

I have had some referral credit to spend at Educents  (an educational daily deal site) for quite a while. We haven’t really needed anything for  our homeschool lately so I was waiting for a good craft supply deal to come up. The other weekend I got an email from Educents that announced they had adult coloring books on sale. I snatched the one in the photo up and plan to bring it along on our BIG trip.

Oh and it looks like Educents is  offering free shipping today with the code PUMPKINSPICE16. Check it out here…

Third Thing I am LOVING Lately…

Our paper shredder.

I bought our paper shredder over a year ago and yet did not even get it out of the box until the beginning of September.

Yet another thing that I am regretting putting off using. Since the beginning of September this thing has helped me get rid of piles and piles of paper from various areas of our home.

These paper piles were essentially the last of the piles in our home. Well the piles out in the open anyways 🙂 .

Do you own and use a paper shredder?
