Of all my protective gear, the wrist guards are by far the most aromatic. After even a short session I have to wash my forearms 3 or 4 times to get rid of that rip roarin' nasty scent. Simple Green works great for the rest of the pad family, but is Simply Inadequate for the wristies. Does anyone have any suggestions for a skin and pad safe cleaning product for eliminating that funk, or should I just get used to it?

I usually just leave mine outside on my porch overnight OPEN and they seem to air out fine. Have you tried Fabreeze?

Throw them in the wash on hot with a little bleach.

This usually helps with mine. Also, try spraying rubbing alcahol after each session.

d'oh! Febreze! I had some under the kitchen sink. Drizzled a little on the ol' wristies... fresh as a daisy. They currently pass the "here, smell this" test. We'll see if they pass the "where'd I get this itching rash?" test after tomorrow's session.

Thanks guys,
dex

A good cure for Rector Rot is to wear your pads into the shower after a session. Then let 'em air dry. Works great and don't cost nothin'!

I like the soak in water with a little bleach idea.

The stench and bacteria are killed. Works with my kids soccer shin gaurds.

When I broke my wrist a few months back, my skin was almost rotting off when I got he brace off.

I would try to kill the bacteria, that is what is causing the stink.

if my wife caught me in the shower with my pads on, that would be it... "the Tegretol isn't working, I'm calling your doctor..."

The rubbing alcohol spray after each session works great! I've been doing it forever on my skate gear and on my downhill mountain biking armour. Totally kills the odor causing bacteria.

the trick is to let them dry before putting them away, that keeps the funk to a minimum.

I always toss a few dryer sheets in my skate bag and replace every other week or so. Helps keep the "stank" down!!
