Default Smelly Shirt

I have a t-shirt that no matter how I wash it , it stinks. Wouldnít be a big deal but itís my favorite t-shirt. Itís an UnderArmor heatgear and fits perfect.

I can wash it with a full load of clothes and they all smell fresh and clean. This shirt is funky even right out of the dryer and 2 minutes after putting it on it smells like shiznit. Anyone dealt with something similar?

Dry fit? I know my wife had the same problem with her work out clothes. She got rid of them and only buys cotton now.

Unfortunately it’s been worn too much. The fabric has absorbed all it could of your stinch. Haha. I have some shirts like that and I’ve done everything I could to change it. A hot wash and sent chrystals helped some.

I have quite a few UA and Nike shirts I work out in like that. When I worked out at a public gym I would throw them away once they got too rank. Now that I have a gym at home I keep them longer. There are about 3 that smell like a 7-11 inside loop 610 once an ounce of sweat hits them.

Polyester gets stanky quick. Grows bacteria very well. The vinegar thing will probably work. Stick with a 50/50 blend in the future. It is kind of the best of both worlds.

yes... it's certain types of synthetic fabrics.
try Sport Wash that you can buy at the bike shop. If that doesn't get it, buy another one, it's not like UA is hard to find.

I have a few like this. My wife thinks its because that type fabric is made to move moisture away, so it doesn't absorb water in the washing machine enough to properly clean them. I'm a smart man, so I don't argue with her.

I have a couple under armor heat shirts I had bought on mega clearance at Bass Pro a few years back, never had problems with them smelling. I typically won't buy under armor stuff because it is mainly polyester... but with the exception of a few items here or there, I wouldn't say their polyester stinks more than any other polyester.

Polyester in general is the worst when it comes to retaining smell.

I can actually smell that description... that is bad. I don't think I could deal with it.

Tide athletic laundry soap always works for me. However, I have never had one get that bad that it was baked in. You may have to throw it out.

I bought a clothes rack and put it in the garage. Instead of throwing dirty shirts in the hamper or on the floor for my wife to pick up, I started hanging them until it's time to do laundry. It has eliminated my "stinky shirt" issues completely.

I have several of the same type of UA shirts I only workout in... a lot of Borax is the only way I have found. You have to wash it once with borax then once normal. If not, the Borax will burn your skin when you get sweaty.

So paying $60 for a magic shirt , doesnít come with magical anti-stink technology?
