  • Under Armour Shirts and the type.....

    There is one advertised that supposedly kills bacteria that causes that familiar odor of having worn body armor for a few hours. Anyone know what can be used to clean or add this type of treatment to every under armour type shirt? No matter what I have used to try and wash them, they still do not smell like the rest of my clothing. I guess its because of the synthetic fibers.

    Anyone know the brand name of the generic at target? I picked up something with an M...Mekon, or Mevrona or something. Im wondering if I got the right stuff or if I should be looking for some other shirts.

      I bought three actual Under Armour shirts and like a week later saw some generic one at WalMart. I checked the materials and the ratio was the same (81% Cationic Polyester and 19% Elastane). Whatever those are.

      10 bucks vs. 35 bucks. Hmmm....not a hard choice. I just would like to have them smell as fresh as the rest of the uniform. I would love to know what I could safely clean the kevlar in my vest with also that would not damage it. I was told not to use soap because it can break down the material. I dunno.

        DavidH: The ones at Target are Merona brand. Those are awesome. I have several.

        Southladeputy: Try spraying some Fabreeze on your vest panels, your carrier and maybe even your shirts. My wife washes mine with just plain detergent and I have never noticed an odor.

          Have you folks ever heard of a non-medicine pill called "Bodymint?"

          It's made in Hawaii but sold in the mainland....the stuff really works to curb body, foot, breath odor!

          I use it because I go outside a lot and believe me it works

          Do a google search on it.....

            Not a cop but I do wear underarmor type shirts (Wal-Mart brand) while working out and also under my chest protector while umpiring baseball. They smell fine after a wash in cold water with detergent, so I'm not sure what the issue is with yours. Maybe it is the wearer. j/k

              Half the time I forget, but just wanted to mention that you're not supposed to put these in the dryer - the heat breaks down the synthetic fibers and "wicking" capabilities over time.

                I wash my shell once a week (I have two shells) and "Febreeze" the actual armour then let them sit out side to air. This works fine for me. I do wear Under Armour shirts and I like them.

                  Interesting, the labels on my shirts and shorts say they can be dried at low temps.

                    Well shoot - most of my synthetic stuff has labels that say "hang to dry" - but can't argue with what YOUR label says. Also can't argue with a Welpe who's "now with less carbs"! (no, that one's too goofy, let's go with this)

                      I looked at the under armor type shirts at Walmart, Academy sports and Target. The cheapest and most comfortable I found were at Target, brand name Pro Spirit. They were either $10 or $15.

                        Who knows, maybe they just want the shirts to wear out quicker so I can buy more of them.

                            I ordered some Cool-Max v-neck t-shirts. I think they're like 13 bucks each. I have UA and I love the stuff, but I couldn't find UA v-necks for the life of me. I can't show any t-shirts while in my summer uniform.

                              Steve and Barrys has performance gear shirts, loose gear UA style for $5.98. I also have the Target brand shirts and love them.
