My friend had that same problem, i think you're safe with baking soda!
Is there anything it can't do??

And if that doesn't work put them in Clorox Bleach or something.

That sounds like a great name for a Punk Rock band. Especially one from Canada

Honestly are you in some silver spoon league? Stinky gloves are great to facewash somebody.

Girlfriends HATE the smelly hands as well. Its hard to get the post-game "congratulations" from the gf when your hands make her want to puke. I feel your pain.

Spray them with febreze. (I think that's how it's spelt)

fabreeze and baking soda will get rid of the smell short term but it's only a mask.

The odor is caused by bacteria and/or mold.
For that make a solution of 3 parts water and one part bleach and spray it into the gloves. You don't need to soak them. This will kill the source and then the baking soda or Fabreeze will rid the leftover odor.

Why would you want to get rid of such a sweet smell? You don't really play hockey untill the smell from your bag scares old women and little children away.

There is a machine invented now which sterilizes sporting equipment in the fact of all the hockey injuries due to a skatelace infection. And if you don't want the hand smell its just as easy to wash your hands after hockey with some soap.

I know the Goalie Shop in Calgary has one of the machines.

Ammonia gets the smell out of all hockey equipment. Put a little in some water and wash your gloves with it and that will kill all the bacteria/mold on them (that cause the smell), then wash normally with soap and water to get rid of the ammonia smell.

And about the 'smelly hands for your gf' comment. If you're old enough to have a girlfriend, you're old enough to have a shower after the game. C'mon, walking around in your own sweat isn't cool.

Thanks for stating the obvious, you freak. I'm 25, of course I shower. The shower doesn't get rid of it. Hand washing doesn't get rid of it. NOTHING gets rid of it.

I had my gloves re-palmed and that's taken the smell out. I guess it was a bacteria or mold, as others have suggested. However, let me assure you. Once you have this stuff in your gloves, a simple hand-washing and a shower DOESN'T get rid of the stench.

EDIT: clappy added to reduce harshness

The best way is to not let your gloves get smelly in the first place. Easiest way to do that is with medicated powder (like they use for athlete's foot or jock itch), look in the foot powder area of the pharmacy. A good medicated powder will, 1) help them dry out a little bit, and 2) help kill any critters still lingering. And don't just toss your stuff in a bag after the game, let them air out that evening.

Downside, your hands might get a little dusty and dry when you use the equipment, but the powder washes off easily. You don't have to use a ton anyway ... just a couple dashes, shake it around in the glove for a few seconds, then dump out the excess.

Once they're in there, though, you simply have to kill them. As people have mentioned, ammonia, bleach, and also good ol' alcohol will do the trick, though some might not be so good for the material (or you, so make sure the room is well-ventilated).

not to nitpick...but my livelihood is dependent on killing microbes..


go with the bleach..it will kill both bacteria and mold.

ammonia and alcohol will only kill bacteria,
same as hydrogen peroxide.

As a female who not only is a hockey player, but has dated her share of hockey players, I can vouch for this-- the stink doesn't go away with soap and is repulsive to ride home with or have to smell for any period of time.

One thing you might want to try is Vinegar. There's something else that one of my guy friends told me about, but I can't think of it off the top of my head.
