    Dettol's active ingredient is chloroxylenol ( 4-chloro-5-dimethylphenol). It must be good for us because the molecule even looks a bit like a badminton bird coming at you!

    I just got a reply from Febreeze, they don't ship to NZ either...What's wrong with these companies ? Do they think people don't sweat over here ?

    Thanks Chiaki, will email them and see if they ship over here...

    @Fidget: lol

    I wash my apparels in a front loading washing machine at 20 degrees temperature. Most fabric softeners work for me eg Downy, Softlan, Comfort etc.

    I have used Nikwax Base Wash in the past. Pretty effective in removing the smell build up associated with polyester type materials. Make sure you get the BASE wash rather than the other ones (tech wash etc), as this is meant for the dri fit type base layers rather than the waterproof clothing that the other types are meant for.

    I'm only spraying febreeze onto the armpit area after I wear the shirt and before I put it into the dirty laundry basket until the next wash. I don't think anyone wants a pic of my hairy armpits anyways.

    Guess what, I found Dettol here in the supermarket. So I tried soaking it for a bit, rinsed it and just put it in the washing machine. I will let you guys know the result.

    Wow, it is definitely better ! I just used a small amount and I definitely can't smell the stink any more. I still want to try it out on the court, cause normally it becomes worse after playing.

    Anyway thanks for all the good tips so far.

    Cheers

    Good that Dettol works for you... I'll be trying that next as the Febreze hasn't helped solve the problem much after the wash.

    As a matter of fact, I think I see on the white fabric in the armpit area, a few dots of dark green which I can safely assume is a growing bacterial colony! :blech:
