Washing gym clothes

I hope this is the right section.

I've got a couple shirts and hoodies that I use at the gym and when exercising, the problem is that when I wash them in normal temperatures, the sweat odor doesnt go away. And I cant wash the in higher temperatures because they are custom made with prints on them, Im worried that it might ruin the graphics... Any tips?

I have heard that adding a bit of lemon juice can help get rid of bad odours without having to wash in high temperatures. And if you are worried about your clothes, try washing them inside out.

Thanks for the tip, I’ll try that next time. Wondering if I can raise the temperature to 60 C if I wash them inside out…? Also, maybe theres even something that you can add to a washing cycle to prevent the the prints from fading, just like with bright colours. Or for example soaking in cold water (http://home.howstuffworks.com/home-i...g-clothes1.htm) The image is printed through the fabric I think, not just on the surface.
