There sure is.
Sports detergents available at Sportsmans Warehouse, Cape Storm and Cape Union Mart are specifically made to remove the lingering odor from technical apparel.
These items tend to trap sweat residue in their fibres while transferring moisture off your skin, and it’s this residue that creates the stinky bouquet. Some, like Nikwax Tech Wash, not only clean and deodourise a shirt, but also refresh its wicking properties. Some new tops are constructed to fight lingering odours by using antimicrobial agents, such as silver fibres or Cocona, that attack the stench before it settles in.
