When I was still active in mountain climbing and going the gym, I usually wear Dri Fit clothing because it’s convenient, cool to the skin and lightweight. Washing and drying them is also a breeze, dirts and stains can be easily removed and they dry easily. It has been the popular choice for most athletes because it wicks away perspiration from the body and brings it to another surface of the fabric. One major disadvantage of this fabric is its smell, no matter how much fabric conditioners and detergent I used, it still has this funky smell. Until I answered this from Dneero, I learned that the culprit for that funky smell is the residues left by perspiration in the fabric. Feel free to answer the survey below.
