If you are a sports mom, I am certain you have asked this question more times than you care to remember. Everyone in my house participates in some type of sport so it is a common question around here. It's so bad that most times, I make them leave the stuff outside. I have tried numerous things to get rid of the smell but nothing has really worked. Normally, I tell them to hang it outside and let nature air it out. It is not a great solution but it generally works well when we don't need to wear the equipment again within 24 hours which is rare.
I was asked to try FunkAway and I figured if it could help my son's lacrosse equipment, it can eliminate any odor. The instructions state to saturate the equipment immediately after use but I used it after the equipment had sat over night.
