    That isn't to say that you should never shower. But three times a day is probably overdoing it.

    The thing is for competitions i can train as much as three times a day in upto two different places, that was why i was showering three times a day. I only shower two times a day

    showering BEFORE training is very bad especially

    there was also an article on the UG that suggested making a 70% solution of water and one of these alcohols:

    isopropyl alcohol
    ethanol
    methylated spirits

    and putting it in one of those spray bottles.

    you spray your gloves/pads/whatver and wipe off, then spray again and leave to dry. good shit, gonna nick some isopropyl off work

    70% isopropyl the best dilution for killing bacteria frommy experience.

    It's also a pretty good for pooling on your hands and setting fire to yourself with a bunsen burner. It seems to take a lot longer to evaporate than you'd think though (it stung and burnt )

    Have you seen this stuff advertised in Fighters Only?

    http://www.puresanitizer.com/

    It's $19.95 + shipping but at the moment is $19.95 including international shipping. Supposed to be good for 800 uses.

    They say:
    PURE sanitizer is an effective and easy way to help prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, fungus and infection. This patent approved formula is designed to kill 99.99% of disease causing bacteria and fungus, including ringworm, staph, and hepatitis, within 15 seconds after application.
