Q.  Can I wash hockey gloves?

A.   Yes!  Use one half a pouch full strength in each glove.  Then soak the gloves in warm water in a pail, laundry tub or washing machine for one hour.  Rinse and air dry.   Once your gloves have been "DRENCHED"  full strength once you can machine wash them with your other gear. Never use a dryer or other source of heat when drenching your gear.

Independent testing of hockey gloves

before & after using DrenchIT

When you take your hands out of your hockey gloves and they stink.  You wash your hands and they still stink!



Growing in your gear is a variety of yeasts, mould and bacteria that cling together in a slimy mass called a biofilm.

Plain soap and detergents can't tackle the job.

DrenchIT is specifically formulated to wash away the biofilm and our specialized odour protection technology coats the internal fabric of the gear and inhibits the re-growth of the odour causing germs.

DrenchIT mist is used to maintain the results.
