When I shake their hand after arrival, I’m dry as a bone. I think that’s the important part

I've tried a lot of different clothes they all do it. The silky shorts aren't as absorbent but my new employee helps the most.

Are your shirts 50/50 or all cotton? Cotton will stay wet for hours. Get you some Dickies work pants that are 65% polyester too.

For some reason I always thought you looked like the little guy in your avatar.

Nike Dri Fit polos have worked well for a lot of people for shirts and help your body breath to stay dry. Take an extra pair of shorts and shirts when you're running hard so you stay fresh. The 1.25 for an extra load of laundry through the week is worth maintaining a good image.

Edit: I bought these and wear them a lot in the summer for local meetings: https://www.logoup.com/Nike-Dri-FIT-Pebble-Texture-Polo_p_1837.html

Of course they're dry fit. A golfer is wearing them. I'm sure that "sport" is very active to make the players soak their clothing in sweat, lol

I think it has polyester in it. I'm worried about getting clothing that has a lot of polyester. I bought one of those weight lifting shirts that are real tight. I needed something to help my ego and make me think that I'm fit, lol. But as soon as a drop of sweat got adsorbed...It had the worst smell. I don't want my work shirts having that same odor.

The shirts really do work/help. Used them for years.

our new washer is a front loader and we are suppose to use that se detergent or whatever it is. This year I was noticing our clothes would smell a little funky after wearing them a little bit. We started using prozyme plus and osr for our laundry and even stopped using softener and clothes stay fresh now. I think the new laundry detergent doesn't work well. Have had other friends with the same complaint who don't work like we do.

I was having the same problem. I started adding borax to it and that seemed to put a dent in the funk

Borax is good too. Also started using longer settings for the wash.

To get things really clean let it soak in borax overnight in hot water.
