New years resolution to get fit…but not whiffy!

After the over-indulgences of the Christmas celebrations it’s no wonder that one of the most popular New Year resolutions is to get fit! There is a lot of focus from health professionals on getting people active, including Sport England’s latest campaign.

Whether you’re taking up a team sport, sweating it out at the gym or jogging round the park, investing in some good quality exercise clothes can give you extra motivation to push yourself that bit harder. But after a few sessions you may find that simply washing your clothes doesn’t remove lingering sweaty odours. Aluminium deposits  from some anti-perspirants can build up under the armpit area and when combined with sweat, discolour the fabric. The problem is usually worse with roll-on products.


Our top tip to keep them smelling fresh is to spray them with White Vinegar 10-15 minutes before washing them. Any persistent odours will be neutralised by the vinegar quickly and safely, leaving you with fresh workout gear, ready for your next session. If the build up is particularly bad, it may be worth soaking the gear overnight in Soda Crystals Laundry Boost.

And what about those whiffy trainers? Pour Bicarbonate of Soda into a pair of socks and tie at the top, then simply place them into the trainers until you use them next. The Bicarbonate of Soda neutralises the odours safely with minimum hassle!

Good luck with your resolutions for 2016!
