Alot of shooters and law enforcement officers wear UnderArmour gear to keep warm and dry in those cold months. The problem is, after about a year or so of wearings and washings, the shirts seem to get a funky smell to them. I can’t describe it, it’s not necessarily terrible, it’s just not fresh. Instead of going out and buying a brand new UnderArmour top for $60, I decided to do a bit of experimenting with the washing machine. Low and behold, I found the magic chemistry (no, not the recipe for meth).
- Spray your garment with OUT! Oxy-Fast stain & Odor Remover . Let sit for 15 minuets
- Pour 1/2 cup of the OUT! in the “liquid bleach” section on your washer.
- Wash garment in washing machine with Tide liquid detergent, or your usual detergent. I’ve found the Tide liquid does well with eliminating odors.
- Dry as usual.
UnderArmour comes out smelling like a rainbow stretching across a river surrounded by pine trees…or something.
