Can you put hockey pads in the washer?

You can wash everything except helmets and skates in a warm-water load in your washing machine: chest protector, elbow pads, shin-guards, jock, pants, socks, neck-guard and even the gloves. Depending on the size of your washer and your kids’ equipment, you may need to divide the gear into 2 or 3 loads.

What temperature do you wash hockey equipment?

Hand Washing

Fill your sink or tub with warm water, detergent, and vinegar, and allow the equipment to soak for 45 minutes to an hour. Using a soft cloth or sponge, wipe down every piece of gear while it’s in the water. Rinse thoroughly. Remove the gear from the water and allow it to dry completely.

How do you kill bacteria in hockey equipment?

To make it, mix ¾ teaspoon of bleach with 500 ml of cool water. If you need more, add a teaspoon of bleach to 5 litres of water. This will kill most common bacteria, but be sure to measure carefully because too much bleach may damage the fabrics.
