    My Gloves Are The Stink!

    Im a Big guy 315pounds between 6'2'' and 6'3'' I sweat a TON! I need some good advise on what is the best way to clean out my GLOVES and SHIN/INSTEP GUARDS, because they stink. My friend recommend baby powder, and that only works about half ass for me. So instead off Trying a Million different things and risk maybe making my gloves/shin guards stink for good with random chemicals, i figured that i could ask you guys for some help on how to cure my fat man stink.

    If they smell already its too late. Lots of fresh air and sunlight are the best way to keep new gear from smelling. At this point your only chance is Lysol spray.

    Cornelius is right if they stink, there is not much to be done. With your next pair, try airing the gloves out on sticks - someone told me that hair dryer on a cool setting could work, but have not tried this as am a bald bastard.

    Try Febreeze. It's the only stuff that works.

    Or you could wash them. Like in a washing machine.

    You can wipe out the insides with disinfectant, but IMHO what it boils down to is that well-used gloves are going to smell. If you're working out several times a week then they'll never get a chance to dry. It's just one of those things that you get used to.

    I spray out mine with Lysol to kill the funk, then put them on PVC pipes I have in the garage so they can air.

    I have similar problem. Lysol and the washing machine and detergent are your friends. You could try freezing them, too. In the freezer. I learned that one in JKD.

    Anti antiperspirant? Or deodorant? May as well try to remove the funk.

    guys, listen to me on this.

    Go to a sporting goods store. One for hunters, not one for runners. Get a set of the little wire racks they sell to cook beercan chicken on a grill.

    Put your gloves on these to dry out.

    also, replace your gloves once in a while.
