Don J Asked, Do You Have a Body Odor Problem in Clothes from Hand Washing?
Polyester is known to retain body odor forever. You can not wash the stink out.
I second the suggestion of cotton.
Lawrence is correct, polyesters appears to feed bacteria more than cotton.
Bacteria and germs, just in our mouths there are 3 billion. It is the reaction of bacteria with materials that cause smells, for example bacteria will quickly rot food. Yet, add sugar to juice, and it can help make wine. We live in harmony with bacteria and germs. What kills bacteria? UV rays, direct sunlight, extremely hot water, and some nasty chemicals, all of which will also kill skin cells, so rinsing your clothes after laundry is highly needed. But, denial of food stops bacteria, I think a glass surface in direct sunlight for 10 hours would kill most any bacteria, but add some drops of water to a glass, sit in the back of a cupboard, in a dark and cool place, and wa-la, a better place for bacteria. Blocking ultraviolet rays makes it easy for bacteria to live.
Think denial of food, and killing them bacteria naturally with direct sunlight. Please note, growing bacteria, mold, and fungus is best done in a cool basement.
What is the true cause of disease? When the body fails fight off too many bacteria because we feed them too much sugar, along with bad sanitation and personal hygeine. What is true cause of cancer, chemicals is my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky6bwy3PzLw
