Anyone who's ever come in contact with a hockey bag knows that they can be some of the worst smelling things on the face of the earth. If that wasn't bad enough, the smell of player's hands after a game or a practice can be enough to make eyes water. As hockey players and coaches ourselves at HockeyShare, we've been on the hunt for products that can make our sport a little easier to handle.
Hockey Bag Smell
There's nothing like the smell of a hockey bag in your car on a warm summer day - and let's face it, it isn't much better on a cold winter day either. We found a product that will drastically reduce the smell from your hockey bag for 3 months! The BagBall Sports Bag Deodorizer has a non-toxic odor neutralizing compound made of natural oils and has a recyclable outside plastic shell. The ball works by adjusting the dial for your desired strength. As the athlete travels with the athletic bag, the compound element createst a slight air-flow within the bagball and permeates the dry vapor odor neutralizing compound. Give these a try, you won't be disappointed! They also work great for that less-than-pleasant gym bag.
- Make sure your hockey player completely empties the contents of the hockey bag after each game/practice.
- Store all equipment in dry place - moisture can lead to mould!
- There are products to help the player store his/her equipment, such as the equipment "tree"
- Wash and/or hang all apparel-related equipment, such as undergarments, jerseys, socks, etc.
- Place a fabric softener sheet inside each glove & skate when not in use
Hockey Hands Smell
You can scrub for hours with soap and water and still not get the smell of your hockey gloves fully off your hands. Now there's an easy way to not only eliminate the smell, but also kill the bacteria and germs that cause it! Hockey Hands Spray uses Isopropyl alcohol and tea tree oil to do more than just mask the smell. With a 99.99% effiency rate of killing harmful bacteria - including Staph A (Staphylococcal Aureus) and MRSA (Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus), there's never been a better way to fight the stink.
- Wash your hands immediately after the practice/game, while they're still damp. This will remove odour-rich moisture and decrease the odour left on your hands
- Always dry out your gloves after each game/practice
- Sprinkle a little baking soda into each glove after the game/practice. Baking soda is a natural odour-remover.
