The other night, I crawled into bed just after midnight. We were still enjoying the hot summer temperatures so our bedroom window was still open.
“Eww, what smells?” I asked. I jumped out of bed to close all of the windows, thinking that one of our neighbourhood skunks was letting his presence be known. But as I neared the window, I realized that it wasn’t a skunk smell. Disgusted, I crawled back into bed.
“Is that you?” I asked my husband.
“Yes, it is.” I was convinced it was him. “Did you shower before going to bed?”
“No, you did not. You absolutely stink.” I wasn’t thrilled about having to wash the sheets the next morning.
“It’s not me,” Dave replied. “I showered.”
“Then what is it?”
Out of bed again, I marched into the bathroom to see if the skunky smell was coming from the backyard and, sure enough, I found it. I closed the door and crawled back into bed.
“Never mind,” I said. “It’s just my running gear from my workout.”
How do you protect your clothes from the “sweaty” smell? Do you use a sports detergent like Sport Suds? I use Tide Pods but am starting to think that a sports detergent may be in order. What tricks do you have to prolong the life of your gear?
