Learn why and how to prevent it with ELBA’s Outdoor / Sports function washing function!
Activewear clothes are made with synthetic fibers, which are designed to wick moisture off the body in order to dry fast. Due to this wicking benefit, these fabrics are oil-loving. This means they easily absorb oil, sweat, and bacteria (and have a tendency to hold on to them)

On top of this, 70% of laundry dirt is caused by body oils that are invisible to the naked eye – sweat, skin cells, salt, and a waxy fat called sebum. These soils accumulate and settle in the synthetic fibers which makes them hard to remove, and causes the odour you experienced.

These synthetic fibers can also get damaged from using the wrong or rough washing cycles, reducing the longevity of your clothes.
