yea, my friend has a queasy stomache and the smell sent him off. lol. It doesn't bother me, but none of my friends want to ride in my car anymore, which is a problem. I need to get rid of the stink from my car, as well as my hockey equipment and bag asap.!

I use this stuff:

http://www.epuck.com/webapp/wcs/stor...tegory_rn=4922

It doesn't get rid of the smell as much as keep it from setting in and getting really bad. I spray down my shin pads, elbow pads, gloves, inside my helmet and skates with it after each game. I play roller hockey and wash my Mission Thorax girdle (plastic inserts removed) and padded shirt on gentle cycle in the washing machine along with my pants, jersey and socks, and they come out fine. (I've also done this with ice pants, but it wears them down a bit quicker). Just avoid the dryer for anything with foam in it.

I wouldn't bother with that spray or the sinkthestink stuff. Just use ammonia as i stated earlier. It's cheaper and you can get it anywhere.

As far as the water debate, i think your skates being damp from water is a hell of a lot safer for your skate than sweat, so make your own judgment there.

Dryer sheets/Fabric Softner sheets work maintain a fresh smell and they do absorb some of the stink, but they won't work if your stuff smells reallly bad. I always have one in my bag and i wash my gear as stated earlier and I'm willing to bet my gear smells better than all of your guys' gear.

Use Amonia and your very likely to have an uninvited visitor using your gear as its toilet. ESP if there are cats around.

Find a local OZONE sport cleaner. Total DRY PROCESS Turn around time is about 1 hr for your entire kit. Goalie is about 1.5hrs for more time to get the Ozone into the leg pads.

Mix 3 parts water to 1 part Isopropyl Alcohol. This will NOT affect padding or glues. Mist the gear inside and out very heavily. Allow to dry away from sunlight or any heat source. Repeat with light mistings every day and after each use. Do not leave your gear in a closed bag for much more than the drive home. White vineger also works as an anti-pet deterent. It leaves an oder behind that you wont be able to smell but cats and doghs will very easily and they dont like it. It will also remove sweat/salt stains from leather.

Shaving cream does work but for the life of your gear use saddle soap for any real leather components that have gotten stiff. Neatsfoot oil also works well but again not on synthetics. If you put a dab on the material and it kinda just sits on the surface and smears around rather than soak in, its synthetic...stop.

I had a teammate who puked when he opened his own bag He opened it, it stunk as usual...but also found the remanants of a mouse in there from his cats cause he leaves his stuff in the garage.

Well my stuff is not accessible to our two cats, and the ammonia smell is gone in a day or two, leaving your gear smelling like new.

I have never done the ozone thing (other than the ozone treatment in the PowerDry bag, which sucks). Not sure how much it is either.

The way I described cost less than $10.


Too each his own, i guess. I'm just glad their are SOME players who try to make their gear not reek so bad that others players feel nauseous.

I had a buddy of mine puke from my equipment once. I'm glad that I am not the only one who has that story. Since then I have taken very good care of my equipment and have dried it out after every use. It has been the best way to handle the smell by far.

I just washed all my stuff in my bath tub. it took me 2 cycles i washed the pans and shin pads and the water turned so brown and nasty i filled it all back up with stuff for the shoulder pads and gloves and elbow pads. i have it drying in a spare room with the AC unit on it and a a ceiling fan and a regular ground fan on it. i will see tomorrow how the smell is and honestly i have the worst stench from my equipment from high school and JR and that never being washed once and only getting new shoulder pads in that time frame makes it nasty.

i tried the 3 parts water to 1 part Isopropyl Alcohol today on my backup skates to see how that will work on the odor. my skates dont have a strong were it bothers other people, there is just enough that it bothers me.
