Hit Refresh: Tips for Keeping Your Gym Bag Smelling Sweet

We recently returned from one of our weekend warrior trips, where we crammed in back to back workouts over a 24-hour period. All that sweat meant we had lots of wardrobe changes on the fly in between classes and, at the end of it all, our gym bags were beginning to look and smell more like locker rooms. It was time to hit refresh. Here are a few of our favorite go-to products for restoring our hard working gym bags and making them smell as good as new.

Available at stretchwash.com or, if you are in San Antonio, you can find it at JoyRide Cycling Studios.
