Washing gym clothes in cold water is a good idea for a few reasons. Firstly, cold water can help to preserve the shape and color of your gym clothes. Hot water can cause shrinkage and fading, which can make your clothes look worn out more quickly.
Cold water also helps to prevent any shrinkage of elastic or spandex material commonly found in gym clothes.
Cold water can help to remove detergent residue as well. Detergent residue can trap bacteria and odor-causing particles, which can lead to musty smells in your clothes. Cold water can help to rinse away detergent residue more effectively, which can help to keep your clothes smelling fresh.
Using fabric softener or dryer sheets is a common practice to make clothes feel softer, fresher and less static. However, there are a few reasons why you may want to avoid using them. fabric softeners and dryer sheets can damage your clothes over time. They can cause the fibers in your clothes to break down, which can make them more prone to wear and tear. This can cause your clothes to lose their shape and color, and can make them less durable.
Many detergents come with measuring cups or measuring lines, but sometimes people tend to use more than the recommended amount. Using more detergent than necessary can leave a residue on your clothes that can trap bacteria and odor-causing particles. This can leave behind an invisible layer of film that can trap dirt and other hard minerals, giving clothes a dingy or faded appearance and leads to clothes that smell musty, even after they have been washed.
Another reason is over-sudsing. When there is too much suds in the washing machine, it can be difficult for the machine to rinse the detergent completely out of the clothes. This can lead to a buildup of detergent residue on the clothes.
