The Best Detergents for Workout Clothes

Residential laundry services: Bikers wearing sweaty uniforms.

 When you’re in the thick of a good workout, you don’t think about the aftermath of putting down your weights or leaving the gym. You’re more likely to think about how sore you’ll be the next day than the clothes you’re wearing. If you don’t use residential laundry services, you should give your sweaty clothes a thorough clean. Workout clothes can get a lot filthier than casual outfits, and you don’t want lingering bacteria in the closet.

Wash your workout clothes like a commercial laundry services pro with one of the below detergents, then pop them in the dryer or when necessary, hang them up to line dry.

Laundry Booster to Aid Your Normal Detergent

If you don’t want to swap between two different detergents, you can use a laundry booster. For destroying the sweaty stench, try the Odor Eliminator by Tide. It goes straight to the fiber level to remove odor-causing stains and bacteria, and works with regular and HE machines, and front- and top-loading machines.

For a greener option, try the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Laundry Booster that’s safe for HE machines. It uses natural plant extracts and doesn’t have a masking fragrance, containing only what you need to eliminate odors from dry and wet workout clothes alike. It’s also biodegradable, comes in a recyclable container, and is safe for pets and children.

Powder Laundry Detergent

If you’re more of a powder detergent person, try the Pro-Enzyme Laundry Detergent Powder, which works with all washing machines and is formulated with protein-eliminating enzymes. Enzymes target organic material, such as bodily fluids (sweat, blood, waste, etc.), and break down them and any odors. It’s all-purpose and can brighten and refresh your whites with oxygen bleach, which is safe on colors.

A greener option is Rockin' Green Platinum Series Active Wear Laundry Detergent Powder. It’s specifically formulated for battling odors and stains in workout gear made of synthetic fabrics. It has a touch of tea tree oil to boost the power of its highly concentrated powder. The formula is non-allergenic, making it safe for sensitive skin and babies. You can use it two ways: in the washer or in a soak. The latter can be done occasionally to remove years of buildup and reveal how hard you’ve been working out.

Heavy Duty Laundry Detergent

For the toughest odors and stains, you’ll find Tide 10X Heavy Duty a must have. It’s formulated for “impossible” stains, like those that have already set in, and grease, oil, wine, and smoke. One dose is said to have ten-times the strength of regular laundry detergent, and is the #1 Tide detergent for working professionals. You can trust it’ll take care of your workout clothes with four types of enzymes, increased surfactants, and polymers.
