How can I keep my volleyball knee pads from smelling so terrible?
After every game they smell absolutly horrible! I try spraying them with Glade stuff, but that doesn't help, they just smell bad again.
Is it possible ot wash them without screwing them up?
Been there, buddy! I'm a girl and my whole team has gone through that terrible sweat smelly-ness! Anyway, after every game, I toss my Nike knee pads straight into the washer. Inside out or not, it gets the smell out and it doesnt ruin the material. I don't know what kind of knee pads you have, but I'm sure they wont get killed if you toss them in. I mean, they're on your knees for in case you have to go for the dive so I'm sure that is harsh on the material anyway. Then after being in the wash with tons of laundry detergent, I toss them straight into the dryer if I need them again the next day. It doesn't kill it at all.
If you're on a tournament, bring a can of febreze. It covers the odor long enough after each game until you can toss them back into your bag and shower.
try sprinkling some talcum powder in there before u put them on, that might help to soak up some of the sweat which is causing the odor, or u could try odor eater stuff they have for shoes...yes they should be machine-washable too
You can wash them but dont dry them too long.
You need something that absorbs odors, not covers them up. Use Febreze - they even have an antibacterial one - it works on cigarette smoke, so it should work on sweat.
They can be washed in an industrial washing machine like what you would find in a laundromat. These washers are most often upright, and do not have agitators in the center of the barrel.
Let them dry out after you wear them.
