Are your clothes wet from sweat after a summer run? Mine always are. They might be a bit stinky, too. When practical, I like to leave my sweaty clothes out by the washing machine to dry off, keeping the stink out of the house. For this I use a free-standing towel rack like this one.
I lucked out and found mine at Goodwill a few years ago. I use it all the time to hang up sweaty shirts, hats, socks, and sweatbands after a run.
Consider getting a rack like this in your mudroom, utility room, garage, or laundry room to keep your dirty running clothes out of your regular hamper.
