    Anybody have solutions to de-stinking my running shoes, handwraps, and 10oz gloves?

    The normal wash with detergent just doesn't cut it.

    Anybody have any tricks to share?

    fill a bowl with water, dump some bleach in it, and soak your wraps. Works for me.

    Hand wash for the gloves and shoes. Wraps get chucked into the washer.

    I soak my wraps in water and washing powder overnight. Come out smelling nice and dandy in the morning.

    Wraps go in a delicates bag, cold/cold wash with a little oxyclean - line dry.

    Gloves get pantyhose filled with cedar chips after each use. I febreze the fabric/chips as well

    For shoes - use febreze sport with sweat-tech (same as above)

    One thing I did that helped tremendously was putting fabric softeners in my gloves while letting them air out. Shoes could probably do this too.

    For wraps, I just made sure the gloves didnt smell, let the wraps air out, and wash them regularly.

    I hear putting gloves in a plastic bag and putting it in the freezer works.

    Vinegar before the wash? That'll kill bacteria.
