Sports gear requires proper cleaning. Jerseys, cleats, shin guards, shoulder pads, gear bags can all harbor germs and bacteria, and they can get really stinky. We recommend Clorox® Disinfecting Mist for daily cleaning and deodorizing after every practice. This convenient spray can be used on hard and soft surfaces, no wipe required. Use as directed for everyday cleaning to help reduce germs and odor.
Keep in mind that much of your athletic wear and fabric sports gear can simply be added to your regular bleach laundry. Just be sure to check the care label and make sure there’s no spandex, and remember to check for colorfastness.
You’ll be glad to know that the same Clorox® Disinfecting Bleach with CLOROMAX® that sanitizes your laundry can also clean and disinfect sports equipment,* even your favorite plastic coated kettlebell. Any equipment with a hard, nonporous surface can be wiped down with a bleach and water solution. Here’s how.
