How do you manage workout odors?

As a high-school Phys. Ed teacher, the locker-rooms can often acquire a musty odor of sweat and mildew. I’m sure you can understand there are strange and funky stenches that are often unique to youth. Kids. I’m working with the new FebrezeSport formula to help control some of these “aromas”: and wanted to see if anyone else might share their solutions in taking care of especially pungent smells.

curious about this one too
I'm curious about what ppl use as well.

As for me, whenever I have any article clothing that I find 'stinky' twice, I consider trashing it. It's a goner. lol!

washing inside-out helps
I've found that washing clothes inside-out usually solves the problem. The seams where fabric is sewn together will trap odor-causing bacteria. When washed inside-out, the seams are exposed to more agitation and circulation. If that's not enough, rubbing some liquid laundry detergent into the seams then washing inside-out will do the trick. They'll come out smelling like new and staying that way longer.

Is there a policy that all gym lockers must be left open & empty by the end of Saturday, for instance? That way most everyone will take their uniform home on Friday (or Saturday) at least.
