Most of your items can be washed in one of the large front loaders on gentle cycle. Pants can go in alone. Shoulder pads alone....the rest can go in together such as socks gloves jersey. Warm wash gentle sycle. If you dont have a front loader then take it to the laundromat.

With top loaders if anything rubs on the stationary tub bin it will wear a cut right into the gear.....the bath tub option is good but it takes FOREVER to hang dry with out a spin.

keeping gear fresh once it is clean is easy. NEVER leave it in a closed bag. let air dry ASAP after use and for inside gloves and other stuff you can mist it with a solution of 1 part isopropyl alcohol(rubbing) to 3 parts water after each use before you let it air dry. Bleach can weaken stitching.
