Removing smoke smell from goalie pads/glove/blocker

I recently bought a set of goalie pads and glove/blocker off of kijiji. Unfortunately the previous owner obviously smoked in their house. The equipment is in great shape other then wreaking of smoke.

What's the best way to rid the equipment of the smell?

I was thinking of putting each individual piece in a tied garbage bag with a box of baking soda.

What do you guys think?

Haven't ever had to do it with hockey gear, but with electronics a few different times. I've had good luck with Febreze and leaving stuff outside in open air. It will probably take more than one "cycle" especially with something softer and porous like goalie pads, but I would think would be pretty effective.

I had a bunch of power and audio cables that made my room stink one time. For those, spraying Febreze into a rag as if it were a cleanser, then aggressively rubbing the insulation of the cables, then leaving them outside for a few hours, worked really well.

LIBERAL dosage of Febreze followed with letting them dry in direct sunlight. keep repeating until smell is gone.

equipment should be as soaked as if it had been through a day's worth of hockey. even then, put some more febreze on it

The glove and blocker should be washable in a front loader right? The pads are a bit tricky though.

Nature's Miracle is really good at getting rid of bad odors. It works well on pet messes and cigarette/fire smoke. Vamoose odor remover is also good at getting rid of cigarette/fire smoke odor. Both products come in a spray. Nature's Miracle kind of has an orange smell to it. Good luck.

Just use 'em! They'll get a different kind of stink pretty fast.

Sprays, as a rule do not remove odours, rather they mask them. Only washing and rinsing removes a significant amount of the odour.

I loaned my backup gear to a guy who, unknowingly to me, kept it in his car and his roommate or buddy or something (probably him) smoked all the time right next to it. Came back smelling like an ashtray. I washed it with Rocket Sport Wash (you can find it online or at many hockey retailers) in my bath tub, and it cleared every bit of smell up, even the old goalie smell. I definitely recommend it.

I thought normal laundry detergent did the job. Cleared up all the smell.

The first thing I would try is a spray bottle filled with half rubbing alcohol and half water. Spray your gear down, and let it dry, repeat a couple of times. If that doesn't work, I'd try natures miracle- similar process.

The biggest problem with any kind of method that involves fulling submerging goalie gear is the drying process. It's really hard to get moisture completely out of certain types of padding (especially your blocker, which can cause mold) and I don't trust that the cleaning process won't shorten the life of my gear.
