I'm about to run into the same problem as the original poster, unfortunately.
I've heard they don't work well.
Two of the things that are supposed to kill bacteria which causes the smell are ammonia and heat. I've heard that leaving your stuff out on a really sunny day does wonders for the smell. And a girl I played with left her stuff out in the sun, it rained, actually washed away mold stains.
What worked for my really smelly gloves was spraying some Nature's Miracle ammonia spray on the palms and leaving them out in the sun for a couple hours. The smell is almost gone.
I'd love to find one of those equipment racks and leave my stuff on my deck for a few hours. Can't find any in the US although I have a parts list to build one from PVC pipe. I would imagine that it's a dry, sunny day, it'll work really well.
