Have you researched the effects of sun on these bacteria? I have found that most times the clothing is more stinky than the person wearing it. Hanging our stinky clothes out in the sun is the only way I’ve found to get rid of the smell. Most detergents just mask the smell with perfume, and we can’t go that road because of contact dermatitis.
Hey Trisha, the sun contains UV light. The UV light helps killing off the bacteria and helps degrading the fatty acids. Also the oxygen in the open air helps transforming the sweat secretions and helps steering towards a ‘better’ microbiome. The wind additionally helps blowing away the malodors. Hanging the clothes in the sun is definitely a good idea. Best, Chris
