Washing Gloves

I've never washed any of my gloves before, but I feel like it's time with my current pair.

How do you wash your gloves, if you wash them?

I put them in my HE washer w/soap and no softener (not for any reason, I just don't want to risk softener doing something to them). Run on the hand washables setting and let air dry. Always come out looking like new.

Washing machine with a mix of soap and white vinegar. The vinegar really helps eliminate that nasty spoiled cheese odor.

But the exercise is futile. The smell always comes back a few games later

I literally wash my gear like a peasant. I fill a bathtub with HOT water and soap, throw in my gear, and use my hockey sticks like a row and push everything around to get them clean. They smell great each time.

I'll post some pictures later tonight.

why not just isopropanol, "rubbing alcohol" , after each game? Then air-dry

Stops the bacterial growth which causes your "stinky" smell (and skin infection). A bottle lasts 1 month+ depending on how often you play and costs <$5

Clean gear starts with good maintenance after every game. Take it out of your bag, spray with alcohol and hang dry. Only takes 5 minutes

During the summer, leave it outside for some UV treatment.
Wash your gear sparingly and with low-heat. It breaks down the foam. Do it once a year

unless you plan to buy new gear every few years

Some pro shops might have the sanitizing machines. I know there is a local shop that sells used equipment and they will do it for ya. Not sure how much. Could be a place near you that has one? But then again maybe you were looking for a cheap way to do it yourself?

I ended up washing them in a tub with dish soap. Let them soak in a bucket for a few minutes than rinsed well. It did a good job. Thanks to everyone for replying.

I'll hose mine down outside and then leave in the sun to dry. Repeat a few times.

I've started doing this and it's been working pretty well.

Febreze anti-microbial BEFORE and after each game. I don't like using crusty, stiff, smelly gloves so it works out great.

I have found that washing gloves is futile. My Warrior gloves have lasted the longest of any I have used without getting crusty, but I just think it's the type of palms (clarino instead of leather).

I spray them with Febreze anti microbial, or regular Febreze mixed with rubbing alcohol, or diluted rubbing alcohol, sometimes, after games. Helps neutralize the scent. They still smell a little weird but not as bad as my old leather palm gloves.

Any time I have washed gloves in the past, they got really crusty soon thereafter. I don't know if it caused crusty palms, but I won't do it again out of fear of screwing up gloves!

This guy uses his washing machine, but not the dryer on gloves. Anyone else done the same?
