Do you wash you spin cycle shorts (if they are the padded ones) after every class you take?

A chamois is a wonderful breeding ground for bacteria, yeast, etc - definitely wash your shorts after each wearing.

I wash everything that has gone to the gym. MRSA can be quite abundant in some gyms. DH had wound MRSA - you don't want it.

Yes, spinning is the same as outdoor riding - I've worn the shorts and worked up a sweat for X amount of time. Into the laundry they go.

I mean... regardless of how much you sweat, does anyone reuse ANY underwear without washing?

Like, if I ride midday after I've already dressed in street clothes, I'll put on a clean pair of underwear after my shower for the rest of the evening, even if I re-use the same bra, top and pants... This is getting to be like the bathroom cleaning thread, except a LOT more intimate

I don't take spinning classes, but...if I put on a pair of cycling shorts for only a few minutes, such as when I have to have them on while I'm having a bike fit issue taken care of at the bike shop, the shorts go in the laundry when I get home.

Yes, I've had enough itchies from my racing days (when chamois was leather and hard to clean) that absolutely my shorts go into every ride and after every spin class.

I've never been to a spin class when I haven't sweated profusely.

Same with me. I wash them after every use. For MTN biking, I immediately change into clean undies and pants after riding, rathering than going home in the car in my biking shorts. I'd rather be safe than sorry.
