I think whatever you spray on it or wash it in, the biggest key is to take it out of your bag and air it out, otherwise it stays wet and is a perfect environment for the bacteria to grow.
Same here exactly. Ever since I started doing this about a year ago (thanks HFBoards!), my gear has stayed relatively odour-free. I still wash certain pieces on a regular basis (i.e. jock shorts), and the rest of the stuff (shoulders, elbows, etc.) a few times a year, but the alcohol/water mix is great to stave off the grossness between washes.
