How to Clean and Deodorize Hockey Pads, Football Pads
Whether you are a soccer mom, a hockey mom, a young athlete or a seasoned veteran, you understand firsthand how awful sports equipment odor can smell. For years you’ve accepted the fact that you have to live with this equipment smelling up your garage, or that you have to feel uncomfortable in your own pads because they smell so bad. You’re in luck – there are several solutions to your problem. Some solutions work very well, while other solutions are much less effective. Below are the most popular ways athletes and professional equipment managers take care of their equipment.
Vapor Fresh is the single-best solution for smelly sports pads. Vapor Fresh is a sports equipment cleaning and deodorizing spray based on all-natural active ingredients. Your equipment will smell great simply by spraying Vapor Fresh onto your pads and letting them dry. Vapor Fresh is a quick, affordable, instantaneous and effective solution to foul-smelling sports equipment that is trusted by professional, collegiate and amateur athletes alike. Vapor Fresh can be sprayed on almost all types of sports equipment, from chest protectors and shoulder pads, to cleats and sports bags.
Some athletes choose to air-dry their equipment. Air-drying involves giving pads plenty of fresh air and room to breathe immediately after wearing them prior to putting them back in a sports bag or locker. Although this method is simple, it is very time-consuming and does not eliminate the odor nearly as well as other methods.
Jumping in pool
May sound odd, but some athletes choose to put on only their equipment that will not get damaged by water and jump into a pool. Apparently the Chlorine in the pool water can help briefly neutralize the equipment odor. This method is rarely used, and is one we do not endorse. The main problem with this method is that it does not treat all equipment, since things like hockey skates and cleats cannot go into the pool. This method is also not very effective at deodorizing. Jumping in a pool with pads on may be fun, but it could be dangerous and it will not remove the odor like Vapor Fresh and other sprays.
Chemical-based cleaning sprays
Vapor Fresh is the leading sports equipment cleaning spray, but there are other options as far as sprays to deodorize your sports equipment. Other sports equipment sprays contain harsh chemicals such as Chlorine and artificial fragrances, which can be irritating and uncomfortable. Cleaning sprays not specifically meant for sports equipment can leave sticky residue or give the athlete terrible rashes. These chemicals are not a good option when it comes to cleaning your sports pads. Instead, opt for a sports equipment cleaning spray based on all-natural active ingredients.
Conclusion: Vapor Fresh is the best option to clean and deodorize sports pads
