Anything I sweat in, I wash every use. If it's a jacket, every few times (no rhyme or reason). I probably should wash out my gym bag but it never occurred to me until you asked.

I wash my gym clothes every time I wear them.

I wash right after wearing each time. Like Jean I only wash the jackets every few times but everything else goes in the washer as soon as I get home.

I don't carry a bag since I get ready for the gym at home.

Okay, I'm gonna be the gross one, I guess.

I'll confess that about the only reason I need a sports bra is for nipple coverage and even then, it doesn't work that well.

I wash every time except that sometimes I use the socks from Pilates a second night because I only use them to walk to/from the locker room - we do Pilates barefoot and it isn't a very sweaty walk.

On nights I run or swim, I shower at the gym, otherwise I usually leave my gym pants on but switch back to my work top to walk home.

I never wear jackets - they are so cute but I am always
