For trainers, boxing gloves etc ...
Has anyone used a sports deodorant / air freshener for trainers or boxing gloves? I'm not adverse to sticking my trainers in the washing machine if they need it, but it can be a pain waiting for them to dry properly before I can use them again ... I did have a couple of little air freshner balls that went in trainers before (picked up from an expo somewhere) but I'm not sure what the proper name for these is and Google is not helping me!
I can't put my leather boxing gloves in the washing machine, are there any forumites out there who have found a good way of cleaning leather boxing gloves? I always use hand wraps which helps a bit, I was wondering if anti bacterial wipes would do the trick or if it would somehow ruin the leather. (I probably need to find a friendly boxing forum to ask this question, but hoping someone here may have an answer )
Nothing worse than being punched in the face with a smelly glove. Trainer tamers?
Thank you all!
Cake - just did a quick Google and found Odor-Eaters Sport Foot and Shoe Spray, only £4 ... I might try spraying that inside the gloves. Febreze until that arrives, thanks seren nos!
North London Runner - Trainer Tamers look good, a bit better than the ball things I had. I will get a couple of pairs so I can have some for my trainers and cut one pair up to leave inside the boxing gloves when I'm not using them ... I like to be considerate to my sparring partners' noses, right up until I hit them
Thank you! Can't beat Wilkos

Bicarb sods works great in shoes. Apart from a bit of dodgy looking white powder on your fingers, I'm sure it'd do the job just great. Tom - Please don't spam the forum pretending a product isn't yours when it is. Cheers
Thanks for the extra tips! Little Ninja - I can't believe I didn't think of bicarb before, I always have a small bowl full in the fridge.
Nessie - those trainer balls are such a bargain! I might buy some as little stocking fillers for my friends (although they might wonder if I'm trying to tell them something)
Tom - I will trial the coffee sock after my next boxing class. I love the smell of ground coffee!
A few weeks ago, I made a DIY heatpack by sticking a (bright green) cotton sock filled with oats in the microwave. My boss came in as I was heating it up and said "I'm almost afraid to ask, but is this some kind of new diet thing?" I can't wait to find out what he thinks of the coffee socks!
With regards to air freshener, aromas have the capacity to stir strong emotion, be it good or bad. Natural air freshener is a lot better for our pet dog since it has no chemicals added unto it. Here are a few natural air fresheners that you more than likely already have hanging out around the house. Check here to learn more: Best payday loans no credit check
Clearly Isabella missed the bit about not spamming the forum! At least Tom's product was relevant.
How come she's picked this old thread from nearly a year ago to spam, though?
Wow, I didn't know that smelly kit was caused by bad credit. You do live and learn!
