Nobody wants to be the smelly person at the gym. Body odors in our modern-day culture are considered embarrassing and can make pretty much anyone self conscious. So when some of my moisture wicking exercise gear started developing a bad smell even after laundering I of course started thinking that it was somehow my fault!
But fear not, those odors on the one hand are a common issue with those hi-tech fabrics (so it wasn’t me!!), on the other hand they are not permanent and you can find ways to remove existing smells and keep new ones from appearing.
