I'd use either dish soap or shampoo and water in a bucket, wash with a soft cloth for the helmet. For gloves I've used Murphy's Oil Soap to avoid drying out the leather palms. Only things I've put in the washing machine are the removable liners for my shin and elbow pads.

My uncle does this as his business. I've had all my goalie gear totally cleaned at one point or another - pads, glove, blocker, pants, helmet. They can do it all, and the leather is almost like it was new again. Pretty amazing.

If it is the stink you wish to get rid of, allow me to suggest:

1. Spray your equipment down with a 50/25/25% mixture of water, alcohol, and white vinegar, repeat a couple times

If that doesn't work:

2. Get a bottle of Petzyme or Natures Miracle. These are enzyme cleaners that are designed to get rid of pet stains, but kill the odor bacteria causes as well. Light mist on your gear, repeat.

I don't care what those equipment cleaner places say- its bad to completely submerge your gear...

I dunno, I think it may depend on the gear. I've been "washing" my old Heaton C/A in the tub every few months for the last 5 years and it has held up just fine.

See, I did the same thing with my chest protector once...and while it didn't ruin it, it didn't dry out completely and it may have weakened the seams in a certain area after it dried. Then again, they just don't make them like heaton used to

Still, I'd submerge my c/a before my gloves. I just don't know that they would dry properly.
