Try soaking most of ya kit in a bath with warm water and shower gel for a few hours and leave it to dry outside, wouldnt suggest skates/gloves/helmet for this though obviously. For gloves (and other kit too) try using fabric freshner like fabreeze, and give it a good soaking with it and again allow it to dry. Usually do it every few weeks with the fabric stuff depending on how wet it gets from training/games, and every month or two for soaking in bath...hope that helps
Thanks much, it smells a lot better.

Why would i put my skates in the washing machine ?
They stink like my shoes.. so what ?
Kidding, lol well i put some in the washing machine, didn't ruin it, just elbow pads, shin pads, shoulder pads, and socks of course.
then hung them on the line, and sprayed them.. aah a lot better.

Hey, just a question
How do you wash your hockey equipment ?
Can you put everything except Skates & helmet in the washing machine ?
I also heard you can put it in the Dishwasher...
Please help, it really stinks !!
I find that simply leaving my equipment outside is enough to get the stink out... although keep in mind that too much direct sunlight can damage the synthetic materials that most gear is made of these days.
I usually keep some Febreeze handy, and I always line the bottom of my bag with fabric softener. As long as you air your bag out after every game it won't be *too* bad.
