Tub wash works really well...cool water, antibacterial detergent. Laundromat with front loader also works well on cold/cold cycle.

Line dry only (rigging a line in garage worked well for our gear, 3 players in family is a lot of gear) after each game put gear on line overnight before storing back in bag helps keep down smell and bacteria between washings.

Fabreeze only works on mostly clean gear... I have used it in washer when washing the gear bag itself (minimal effect for the price).
