I use some of the sprays that you can buy from hockey shops. I also use smelly pucks, I have about 7 in my bag and it keeps the smell out pretty good.

7 smelly pucks? I use one in my bag that I use for ice and roller and it works fine. Which sprays are you talking about? I have a tendency to lose the smelly pucks and these sprays might be worth an investment if i can find them for a good price.

The fresh pucks are called "Freddy Fresh Puck" at least the ones I use. Just to let you know.

I use sonic aroma spray, I got a pretty big bottle of it for $10. And those smelly pucks have been collected over a long period of time, its pretty weird in my bag all 7 of them have different smells so my equipment just smell incredibly sweet.

where can I find these "smelly pucks", or the "freddy fresh pucks"?
is there a web site?
thanks in advance!

Here is a link for freddy fresh pucks:
And here is one for smelly pucks:
I hope this helps you and your gear out.
I own a Roller Hockey Facility, and you think your bag is bad!!!
There are some good sprays available: No BO, Zap, XO. Smelly pucks are good. (Be very careful if you have birds in your house-many of these sprays can cause bad breathing problems with pet birds-XO seems to be the best if you have birds)
We even have a goalie that puts dryer sheets in the glove.
But if you want STINK. We had a junior player that liked to keep his gloves soft and pliable.....So after each game, he put them in a SEALED ZipLock bag....They they stayed soft, because they were always damp...and wet=bacteria=STINK.
That is just WRONG.....sorry to anyone that was eating while reading this :-)

Get a big cooler and fill it with hot water and detergent. Grab the gear that smells and soak it in the cooler for about a day. Pull it out and let it dry. If that dont work try some kind of pet deodorizer as those things work well for getting rid of funky smells.

But what happens when you want to use the cooler? Does the equip. leave any sort of stench or a ring like the one that mysteriously shows up in your bathtub?

As long as you rinse it out you should be safe.
"CONTACT M" new product from "Vaportek" encapsulates the odor molecules then digests them biologically - no fragrances or masking - IT WORKS - and no I dont sell the stuff - they sent me a bottle from the factory to try on my dog when she got sprayed by a skunk - killed the odor in an hour. Used it on gloves skates etc. - wont get 100% but reduces it to almost nothing - more appications might do it but was afraid of saturating the equipment - a few squirts from the spray bottle did the trick.
