i use "sportsclenz." bought a spray bottle at cyclones in richmond. works great on my goalie gear, especially the glove and blocker. i spray it on my chest pads and use it to clean the inside of my goalie mask too after every game.

with the glove/blocker/chest/pants, i just spray after every game. for the mask, you spray and then use a cloth to wipe it away.

Are you for realz?^

like it has been said best bet is the hockey tree. The only thing of mine that would smell would be my glove and blocker. Which sucked because my hands would smell for at least a day after even after a few showers. Jersey, socks, etc. was washed after every use.

Aside from that nothing else would smell as long as it was aired out. I used to wear under armor beneath my pads... maybe that helped with other stuff smelling.

"I am for realz"

I don't have a front loader, so I'm using a tub as suggested to dump my gear in. But the gear floats, so it's not submerged in water.

I have a tree, and I spray my stuff after each game. I wear underarmor as well.
Airing your gear out only prolongs it from smelling, but it doesn't automatically clean itself from bacteria and odor...

Your gear will stink eventually... if your's doesn't, you're luckier than pretty much everyone else. lol

Considering i live in an apartment where the storage area is too cold to air dry my gear, i bought this...

http://www.nhldigest.com/shock-docto...ry-hockey-bag/

Their claims is not as accurate as they state it would be, but for my situation, it works just the way i want it to. I can just go home, keep my gear in my bag, put the bag on my balcony and let it dry there.

Where did you buy this bag?

I'm up on SFU and it is now the rainy season and there is no way in hell my gear is drying when I leave it on the balcony due to the mist/fog/clouds.

If this said bag works anywhere near what they claim, it is what I want for christmas.

u may want to consider waiting for christmas....the stores considered this a waste. Most store i know are clearing it out.

i got mine in the Hockey Shop surrey on clearance....89 bucks or 100 for the wheeled.
FYI now that its colder, its taking longer to dry my gear, Fact of the matter is my gear is pretty much dry when i play the next time around (pending my next game is not the next morning after a previous day game)

I always just pull all the gear out of my bag, leave it on the shelves of a wire storeage rack in my enclosed balcony, and keep a fan blowing in the enclosed balcony for about 12 hours and my stuff is dry and ready to go after. My stuff doesn't smell at all, used for about 2 seasons of ice.

Before I moved into my condo, I used to just lay all the gear out across the floor and it would take way longer to dry out, and would begin to smell after a few months of use playing roller. I think the key is just to help it air out quickly.

Can anyone tell me what's the difference between top loading and front loading washing machine in terms of "how it washes" ?

Because I bought the Sudz stuff, and I tried soaking it for an hour and rinsing in the bathtub but it didn't really work. It only helped a bit...

It says it's best to be used for front loader washing machines.
But I have one of those "Efficient Energy" top loader washing machines that
loads from the top, but it doesn't have that "fan" thing in the center. It's just
empty like a front loader and it spins. Would that work the same as a front loader?

Safe to put my gear in there? I was thinking of just testing with my elbow pads first...

That fan thingy is the agitator. Your washer should have fins on the sides of it. That is what helps get the skid marks out of your tighty whities.

Give it a try. should work fine.

I use this stuff from Richmond Ice Level (in Ironwood mall in Richmond) called "SportsClenz", and it's pretty good. It got rid of five years of stench for my shin guards and elbow pads.

I was at The Hockey Shop (in surrey) a while back and they sell this shit that the guy claims the equipment managers for the Canucks and other NHL teams use. You do, however, have to put it in the washing machine and what-not.

Go to a laundromat and use the machines there. I used our top loading washer once and one of the pieces of equipment fucked up the agitator. It stopped spinning. I had to get a guy to come and fix it for like $100. Laundromat will probably only cost a few loonies.

It is safe to put your gear in a front load washing machine. It is NOT safe to put your gear in the top load washing machine.

"Rocket Rod's" hockey shop in Delta (Inside of Great Pacific Forum arena) has a gear cleaning service for $25 a load. But I haven't used it and not sure about the results...

you gotta start fresh, so after every game, leave it in a room with open air, opened windows so the air is refreshed every minute and i usually spray febreez on my gear just to make sure.

Tried it... it kinda works, but I can imagine it having even better results if it's used in a washing machine.
Plus, the gear floats when I used this method, which was really annoying, since whatever is sticking out of the water doesn't get cleaned.

My question now is what about the new high efficiency top loaders? They don't have the same agitator design as the traditional top loaders.

I've used my front loader once, but only put my shin guards and elbow pads in it and it worked fine. Not sure if these guys are overloading their machines. Guess it also helps my washer doesn't have the center agitator.

Gotta wash my gear this week since it is christmas break. Gonna use the pay machines in my condo.
