Kirk and I came across the line of Febreze Sport Spray recently at Target (look in the laundry cleaning product aisles) and it is carried by other big retailers including grocery stores and drug stores. Designed to be used on items you can’t launder such as shoes, gear, backpacks and more it cuts the stench to nothing quickly. There are two scents to choose from – Active Fresh and Fresh & Clean.
We have tested it on gym gear and it works nicely. The scent is not much different than using normal Febreze although for me I have to spray it outside. Spray till damp and then let dry. And enjoy not breathing in funky old odors for once!
