Wacky Wednesday

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.
“No.”
“Yes, it is.”  I was convinced it was him.  “Did you shower before going to bed?”
“Yes.”
“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?

  1. I do use sports suds – on super stinky stuff I toss it in a bucket with hot water and sports suds and let it soak for a while, then wash. That seems to help a lot, especially with things like my husband's super nasty knee brace.
