Don't Sweat It

If you are an exerciser or simply someone who "perspires" a lot (I am both!), than you may be familiar with this problem: STINKY CLOTHES!

Both Adam and I notice that very quickly even brand new workout clothes can get pretty ripe. Adam actually goes through is workout shirts and throws them out on a regular basis.

But frequently tossing out all your exercise clothes is not very "green" nor is it feasible if you are on a budget. Workout gear is EXPENSIVE! Not only that, but I find it hard to find stuff that is flattering on my body shape (i.e. short with no hips or waist + big boobs).

I don't buy Lululemon anymore because it is too damn expensive and I have had bad luck with it (holes, shrinkage, colours fading, etc.). I LOVE the La Senza Spirit line of active wear, but it has been discontinued (boo hoo). Joe Fresh and Costco actually have some great and very affordable stuff, but they rarely have my size.

Sooo, I decided to try and "fix" some of my favorite stuff. Why not, they LOOK perfectly fine, they just smelled BAD. The solution, however, is simple.

After each workout, I take my clothes, place them in a big bucket I have in the laundry room, and soak them in baking soda and white vinegar until I wash them in the washing machine. If I do this after each wear, NO SMELL!

Hmm, I'm thinking we should start soaking Little A's Diaper Genie...
