According to a report by Mother Nature Network, polyester may be the reason why people find it so hard to get that funky after workout stench out of their clothes.

Polyester is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria to grow odor, as sweat seeps into polyester clothes, bacteria breaks down acids, hormones, and sulfur compounds into smaller, smellier compounds.

MNN suggests that if persistent body odor is a problem, people should try switching to cotton.
