Let’s talk about stinky running clothes.  Over the years I’ve had my share of stinky clothes.  I tried various detergents to remove the smell. When that didn’t work, I simply threw away the clothes.  I felt bad doing so but there was no way I was going to donate them and have someone else wear them. Here is what I’ve used:

  • WIN High Performance Sport Detergent
  • Penguin Sportwash Laundry Detergent
  • Tide Plus Febreze Freshness Sport
  • Arm and Hammer Liquid Laundry Detergent

My clothes were clean but after a while I would notice a faint smell that just wouldn’t go away. Maybe it was time for new clothes?  I even added vinegar and that did help a bit.  One day I was at Target and saw the Seventh Generation Laundry Packs.  They were on clearance and I decided to buy one box.  I used them to wash my running clothes and let me just say that they’re no longer stinky.  I purchased the Mandarin and Sandalwood which left a clean, light scent on my clothes.  I finally found something that cleans my clothes and makes them smell good.  Each box is about $15  for 50 pods which comes out to $.30 each.  Not a bad deal at all.
