This morning I put on some yoga pants and wondered if I had pulled them out of my drawer or out of the hamper! Blech.

I don’t have many yoga pants — in fact, I have zero — I wear my running pants to yoga. So I wore them anyway and regretted it every time I bent down and got a whiff.

After hoping I didn’t earn the nickname “the smelly girl” in class, I googled “how to get funk out of gym clothes” and got a bunch of links entitled, “WHEN TO THROW OUT YOUR GYM CLOTHES!”

Seriously?! I can’t be throwing things away!!

For the last couple of years, I’ve made my own laundry detergent. It is super cheap and has worked very well — but apparently it’s been having trouble keeping up with my current workout spree.

So I gathered all the workout clothes (dirty and “clean”), used cold water, 1 tsp of my detergent, and poured 1 cup of white vinegar into the fabric softener dispenser, and VOILA! Clean smelling synthetic fabrics!

Throw them away????
