PEE-YOU !!

OK, enough joking. First of all, soak or rinse your cycling clothes after EVERY ride. Gotta rinse out the sweat before it dries. I let the clothes sit in the bathroom sink while I shower. I'll rinse them through with shampoo or bar soap then hang them to dry. I don't re-use them unless they've been laundered.

For your current stink. Try soaking them in some Borax and warm water. Rinse or wash them and try it again. You may be too late. Don't use clorox or bleach - it will destroy the fabric and fade the color. Borax is great stuff.

Good lucky Pepe. Paul
Try using some Arm&Hammer baking soda (powder?) nmNJRoad

...wringe out periodically while hanging cloths as this improves the drying

Try 1/2 - 1 cup of white vinegar in a sink full of warm water, soak for an hour then launder as usual. If it gets stinky B.O. out, it should work on anything.
Did it happen to be in new jersey? ;-b -nmgrzy
