A few times each season I will fill the tub with warm water and a cap of arm and hammer detergent with oxy clean in it. Soak all my pads for twenty minutes then drain and rinse well.
Gloves I will put some shaving cream with lanolin (lanolin? Like sheeps wool?) on the palms inside and out and rub the stuff in and air dry. Keeps them somewhat clean and supple.
Skates don't get sprayed or cleaned, just air dried.
After games, I put all the equipment on a metal rack, air dry, and spray with alcohol/water, but I picked up the febreze sport stuff a few weeks back and it cuts down on the smell way more.
I thought Lysol was bad for your skin, I wouldn't feel safe using that unless I washed and rinsed the equipment afterward.
