4 ways to keep sporting gear clean and odour free

Whether you or your family members are working out or playing in a big game, here’s how to stay fresh.

Here are a few tips that will keep sporting gear fresh and clean.

Fight sweat stains. The classic, low-tech cotton tees may be the comfiest workout shirts. But they do tend to absorb sweat and may well show sweat stains. To combat this, turn your shirt inside out and pre-treat the underarm areas with Ariel Automatic Power Gel Original. Let it sit for 30 minutes, then wash in the hottest water safe for the fabric with  Ariel Automatic Power Gel Original. If the stain persists, repeat the process before drying.

Use the right detergent. Try using a detergent that’s specifically formulated to handle tough stains like grass, dirt, clay, and blood while also eliminating odour. Ariel Automatic Power Gel Original with pre-treat cap and Ariel Automatic 3in1 PODS Original together have a fantastic stain removal system for your gear.

Don’t wait to wash. Don’t leave your sportswear in a duffel bag after a workout or game. Since bacteria love to grow in moist places, make sure that your sportswear dries as quickly and efficiently as possible, even if you’re planning to wash it later. If it’s a sunny day, move equipment outside so that it dries faster.
