Nah, I just spray the inside with rubbing alcohol/water mixture. Though I have the RBK 9K skates and they're anti bacterial.

I am a freak of nature. I have no body odour, and my gear does not smell. Ever. At worst it will smell a little musty if I don't let it dry out. I don't even wear deoderant. I've used my goalie C/A about 10 times now and it still smells like brand new.

That being said...maybe I should get some disinfectant anyways.

Now that brings up an interesting angle to this topic, I've never known any females to stink like men, so does hockey equipment used by females even smell bad?

My gear never stinks at all for the first several months, but it builds after some time. Let us know how your CA smells after you've worn it for a couple of seasons.

I keep dryer sheets in my bag and put them in my gloves and skates after games. I also rub mint shaving cream on my hands before games to keep them from getting the glove stink! I have about an hour and 1/2 ride home from the rink so I unload as soon as I get home and lay everything out. A good spray of febreeze over everything. The elbow pads and knee pad inserts get washed every time with my jerseys,socks, etc.

I just bought a new, oversized LG washer with a sanitize feature. I can fit everything in there so once a month, I wash everything (except skates and helmet). Works great!!

Yes.

Mine isn't as bad as my male teammates, but I also don't leave it in my hockey bag in my trunk for weeks at a time like some of them do.

My dad always got penalty box duty for mine and my brother's games. He said girls smelled worse.

It looked like it sucked quite a bit for him so I've kinda been paying a little more attention as far as cleanliness goes. I play in a men's league once a week so I don't spend a ton of time there but still, neither does he. So I've been spraying all my gear down with Lysol after every game and I haven't seen any ill effects yet but I don't really want to come to find out that it makes all my gear break down 200% faster or something like that.

Does this sound like a good course of action or is there a better way to go about it?
I use Lysol after every game and it is wonderful. My gear always smells fresh and it seems like, when i play tournaments and spray my gear down after every game, it dries faster.

I'll chime in on this. At college hockey games, I can smell the gear from several rows back when the women come close to the boards. Not so much with the men's team.

I use a Shock Doctor bag, run it three times after every game, that dries it out. I also spray it with alcohol and/or Febreze occasionally. I wash every few months with Arm & Hammer with Oxyclean detergent...that helps for a bit.

On my gloves, I rub a little shaving cream with lanolin into the palms every so often.

Drying right after use is key. If you miss it once, your gear seems to stink for life.
