@djpeanuts. My man lululemon is not for yoga heads only. Once you try one top youll never go back to drifit. Try anything antistink and you'll love it.

Do they go on sale? Prices are insane (as expected).

I workout a lot and have a ton of dri-fit gear that would end up smelly if i didn't wash them right after a workout. Who has time for that? I found a cheap solution that has worked every time, wash your dri-fit clothes with regular detergent and add a small cup of distilled white vinegar. The vinegar will destroy any funky smell that's lingering on your dri-fit clothes.

they are definitely not cheap, but you do get what you pay for.

i have a few of the metal vent tech shirts that i use daily and wash after EVERY use, yet they still hold up in shape and moisture wicking after 3 years.....

Soaking them a bit with vinegar and warm water before washing will clear it right up.
I use an extra rinse in my wash cycle and it takes care of the vinegar.

Will give the vinegar a shot. Thanks!

Even though we are not suppose to use bleach, I still do. It kills the bacteria on the sweat build up.

Care label instructions say to wash in cold water, so I wouldn't wash in hot water, as suggested previously.

I wash them right after using so they do not smell.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

I sometimes use my metal vents 2 times with out washing and still smells fresh. Metal vents are the best.

Never had an issue with Dri-Fit (or similar) items and odour. My routine: cold water, scent-free powder detergent, vinegar in the fabric softener cycle, air dry.

I wash mine within a few days after they have been worn. I don't leave them in a gym bag or plastic bag. I heard a trick that some people do is take them into the shower with them and rinse them.

I wash them with warm water, but once a week - so they sit for some time between washes.
Wouldn't adding vinegar to the mix...make the shirt smell like vinegar? lmao.
