Anyhow, there is, in fact, an ideal way to deal with your duds after a sweatfest at the gym.
First, shirt goes down on the ground, follow by socks, headband, shorts and sports bra.
Roll that stuff up and place back in the bottom of the locker while you get your post-workout shower on.
Then, roll up the dirty clothes inside your used towel. Place the whole sweaty sausage into a giant plastic bag, stuff in the gym bag and tote home.
Then, all you have to do is dump the contents of the bag directly into your hamper or wash machine. Fin.
