    Maybe, but probably not. It just stops them from reproducing (or doing much of anything) for a while.

    I was wondering, would putting my knee pads in the microwave kill germs? :icon_scra
    And could this **** up the rubber? I wash the knee pads every other week but since I have to handwash them it is a pain in the ass and I am not sure if it is perfect so I would also add this in order to kill what ever is in there after I washed them.
    Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.

    At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

    "Microwaves aren't ionizing radiation, so to kill bacteria with a microwave, you'd have to heat the kneepads hot enough to kill the bacteria" and "probably", respectively.

    Also, it's liable to stink up your microwave.

    Well I would put the stuff in a bag to avoid the smell. I thought even bacteria consist of water, some how and hence putting it in the microwave would kill them. I am not sure how to "heat them up" without ruining the rubber bands. Hence I hoped that the microwave would work. because I can't put them in the freezer because this will **** the rubber bands.

    I think it will kill the bacteria eventually - I'm not sure. I'll have to ask someone.

    My coach tells us to leave our nasty contaminated clothes in the sun.

    If your gloves already stink, it's probably too late to do anything about it. I know guys who have had to throw away perfectly good gloves because they couldn't get rid of that nasty smell.

    Prevention is the key. Here's what I do:

    Wash your handwraps after each use. Hang them to dry (electric dryers shrink them and destroy their stitching).

    After training, stuff your gloves with newspaper. A few hours later, remove the newspaper and let the gloves air out until your next training session.

    Once a week, clean the outside of your gloves with a baby wipe, and the inside with a Clorox or Lysol wipe.

    Occasionally (once a month or so) rub moisturizing hand/body lotion into the leather on the outside of the gloves. This has nothing to do with odor, but it keeps the leather soft and kissable.

    Dude....seriously, don't microwave your kneepads.


    Seriously.


    Try X-O Odor Neutralizer.

    I usually spray a papertowel with lysol and put inside. Then I put a paper towel tube (also lysol'd) and put it inside to let it air out. I usually just wipe the outside down with very diluted alcohol.

    No smell yet (3 monthes of 3-4x a week of use)
