How to Clean Stinky Hockey Equipment
Here's what you will need: Dirty hockey gear, 35-50 gallon plastic/rubber trash can, swimming pool chlorine, and garden hose.
Step 1: Place an appropriate amount of pool chlorine (ratios are usually found somewhere on the chlorine container label) in the trash can and fill about 1/4 full with water to begin diluting. To hold a full set of adult gear, you'll need between a 35 gallon and 50 gallon trash can.
Step 2: Throw in your dirty gear and continue filling completely with water.
Step 3: Allow to soak for 3-6 hours.
Step 4: Remove equipment and hang to dry. Discard water.
- Hot tub chlorine can be substituted for pool chlorine, however take care with the instructions as it's usually more concentrated.
- You may find your hockey gear is too buoyant to stay in the can. Put the trash can lid on and place some rocks or bricks on top to keep your gear submerged.
