Between eau de chlorine, funky insoles and questionable stains, triathletes are a notoriously funky bunch. Though many cleaning and deodorizing products are marketed to the endurance athlete crowd, they can sometimes be expensive and hard to find. In response, budget-conscious and handy triathletes have discovered quick and easy remedies using products already in the home. Triathlete.com compiled some of the best tips and tricks from readers and bloggers.
