    do not put them trough the washing machine

    get a decent fabric spray and some cleaning wipes ~ washing machine will kill them if your not carefull

    I would have thought that no matter how careful you were the washing machine would kill them!

    As mentioned, Wipe them down, dry them out after use, I have a small towel that I fit into each one after each session to dry them out, then I wipe them down and air them out in the bath.

    How often do you guys clean yours this way then?

    I clean mine every week or so. What I also do is air them in my shed outside after every use to make sure they dry. Do not leave in your kit bag whatever you do.

    If they smell put them in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer over night. This kills the bacteria that cause the smell.

    This also works on your trainers.

    Hi all,

    We have done some extensive research on the best ways to sanatise smelly kit. There are some ways that delay the stink for a while like freezing and deodorant etc but this is only a very temporary fix and does not kill the bacteria. Washing them in any way does risk damaging the item as its not designed to be washed.

    We are now offering a glove sanatising service on our website. Return postage to you is included in the price.

    We can de-stink gloves, mitts, kick boots, head guards or anything of that size.

    Process does not use any heat, liquids or nasty chemicals.

    More detail here :-

    Its totally safe for all fight gear and will dramatically improve smelly kit. We will also be stocking suitable antibacterial spray for use on fight equipment soon.

    Dettol Antibacterial Spray, Odour Eater Spray, Airing Cupboard. After each and every use. Done
    I don't believe in belts. There should be no ranking system for toughness.
