Obviously you don't want to wash them all the time, so I recommend getting a Rocket Sports Dryer and hanging your gear there. If not, make a gear hanger yourself. Wash only when the smell gets a bit strong. Don't wait until it molds.
That's pretty much my system with my son's gear. Rocket Dryer after practices and games, and maybe once a month I put the stuff in the washing machine on the hand wash setting, then 15 minutes on low in the dryer, then the Rocket Dryer again

at this point, you could probably sell your stick collection for the down payment

Here is what I do and it works amazingly, and you kill 2 birds with one stone. I just throw all of my crap in the back of my truck and drive through the jet blast car wash. Easy and labor free, and you get a clean truck out of the deal.

Oh yea, choose the option at the car wash that does not us the F-18 jet engine dryers, unless you want to chase your gear all over the place.

When you do use a front loader though, make sure you do separate washes.

The only things I throw into my washer are gloves and shoulder pads, as they are the most foul smelling things in my equipment bag. As a result, I don't have to worry about equipment velcros tangling up.

Everything else has been relatively odour-free for the last year.

Ive had the same set of gear for about a year now and w/ a fair amount of wear and never sprayed it or use a special method and it still doesnt stink.

All i do is take it out the bag, lay it on the floor of my basement and let it air dry..

Idk if its because its cooler in the lower level of my house that combats odor but i it just works for me...
