How do I clean my smelly running clothes
I think I found that napisan seems to degrade elastic quite well Hopefully it doesn't, t just seems to.
I've been using Milton
with lots of success...
I did find that milton stuff online but can't find anywhere near me that actually stocks it, and I live just north of Glasgow with most major supermarkets within easy reach, but none of my local ones stock it.
Is it a similar price (£5.60 ish) in Tesco?
If it is 20mls per wash, it's a fair bit cheaper than Halo.
DB2-Have a tesco extra here but they don't sell the milton fabric stuff, everything else milton but not that .
NickL-I have bought a bag of soda crystals but couldn't find any info online that says they actually kill bacteria, just that good for stain removal.How much do you put in?
Yes, about £5-£6 per bottle...
Shame more places don't do it, its great!
Woohoo my local Tesco have Halo now, £3.99 for a Litre. Just bought it today so haven't tried it yet.
In my locality also no one stock very rare
Its stocked in Sainsburys @£3.99
We always take our tops into the shower with us after training, we give them a quick wash there. Once they are dry we put them in the washing machine. The problem with stinky tops begin when you use them and then it takes you a few days before you put a washing machine with them in it.
Now, when we still get tops with awful whiffy arms which actually seams to be the black ones most of the time, I have my nan's easy and cheap trick ...all you need to do is buy the cheapest white vinegar and put the top in water with it overnight. The vinegar kills all the bacteria and other little animals that cause the smell...so you won't need hot washing machines that actually are not that good for the quality of your tops anyway
I hope it helps
I tend to take my kit into the shower before I put it in the washer, although when it really hums I tend to use a bit of Dettol (I would suggest the fragranced stuff as the original isn't my favourite smell, Orange and Lavender or something is alright!) and you can use that in the wash. That seems to do the trick and kill the germs. I think my wife washed it once in my son's Napisan and that seemed to come up lovely!
