To sweat without sticking up the health club, search for these textiles:

COTTON: It absorbs smells and inhibits the growth of smelly bacteria.

RAYON MADE FROM BAMBOO: When sweat lingers on a fabric’s surface, odorous germs soon follow. Bamboo could absorb up to 3 times its weight in water. You do the math.

MERINO WOOL: It soaks up odor particles, so you’re much less likely to scent them.

HEMP: Antimicrobial properties of this resilient standby may help maintain gear funk-free.
