  1. 1

    Turn on your washing machine, using a warm-water cycle.

  2. 2

    Pour in a capful of your normal laundry detergent and add your workout clothing.

  3. 3

    Pour 240 ml (1 cup) white vinegar and 240 ml (1 cup) baking soda into the washing machine. The baking soda is a natural deodoriser while the vinegar disinfects, killing any bacteria associated with the odour.

  4. 4

    Allow the wash cycle to complete, and dry the garments as you normally would.
