Gym clothes get stinky and often times these odors are tough to remove – even if you’ve washed them thoroughly. Thankfully, there are a handful of effective antimicrobial and antibacterial products made just to combat tougher odors. Here’s some of the best that you can use on your clothes, and some you can use on your workout equipment as well.

1. Funk Away Odor Eliminator Spray

This handy odor eliminator spray works on clothes, shoes, and even fitness gear. Unlike some “odor eliminators” that just mask the scent, this Funk Away Odor Eliminator Spray actually kills the odor-causing microbes.

2. Downy Wrinkle Release Spray

Downy Wrinkle Release Spray is primarily used for removing wrinkles when you don’t have an iron (or the time to iron) clothing, but this multifunction product also does double duty as an effective odor eliminator. It’s also very affordable, with this 2-Pack costing just $10.

3. Molly’s Suds Laundry Wash

If you want a versatile, all natural odor remover (and all-around great laundry detergent), go for this bottle of Molly’s Suds All Sport Laundry Wash. It can be rubbed directly into clothes to remove stains and bad smells, diluted with water and sprayed on gear, or used as a regular laundry detergent.
