Now that the we're coming to an end to fall ball, I notice that my son's catcher's gear really stinks (and the bag too for that matter). His gear was used as the team gear and a lot of sweat and dirt have accumulated since March.
How do you guys clean your gear? Can the pads be pulled off and washed? Or do you just replace them? What about the chest protector? Can you throw it in the washing machine?
And as far as the helmet and shin guards go, I'm thinking a good hand wash and then some disinfectant spray might be the way to go.
I'd appreciate some suggestions.
