Spring Cleaning your Sports Equipment

Spring Cleaning your Sports Equipment - RALLY

As the days grow longer and the weather warms up, it's the perfect time to give your sports equipment a much-needed refresh. Just like skincare, taking care of your gear is essential for peak performance and longevity. For teen athletes gearing up for the spring season, maintaining clean and well-maintained equipment is key to staying at the top of their game. Here's a closer look at some gear you might not think of cleaning regularly, but definitely should:

Sports Bags

Your trusty sports bag goes everywhere, but when was the last time it got it a thorough clean? Empty out the bag completely and shake out any crumbs or debris. Wipe down the interior with a disinfectant spray or cloth, paying special attention to pockets and corners where dirt and odors can linger.


Listening to a playlist or a podcast can help get you in the zone before a game or practice, but your headphones or earbuds can accumulate sweat and bacteria over time. Use a gentle disinfectant wipe to clean the surfaces, paying attention to ear tips and any crevices where dirt might hide.


Mouthguards are essential for mouth protection when playing contact sports, but they can also harbor bacteria if not cleaned regularly. To clean, rinse thoroughly with warm, soapy water after each use, and consider soaking it in a mixture of water and mouthwash to kill germs.

Water Bottles

H2O is your constant companion on the field, but it can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria if not cleaned properly. Wash your water bottle thoroughly after each use with warm, soapy water, and consider using a bottle brush to reach those hard-to-clean areas.

Knee Pads/Elbow Pads

Knee pads and elbow pads provide essential protection during high-impact sports, but they can also trap sweat and bacteria. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and care, and consider using a disinfectant spray to kill germs between uses.

Equipment Storage Area

Finally, don't forget to spring clean your equipment storage area. Whether it's a garage, closet, or corner of your room, take the time to tidy up and organize your gear. Sweep or vacuum the floor, wipe down shelves or hooks, and declutter any items you no longer use.

By incorporating these often-overlooked items into your spring cleaning routine, you can ensure that every aspect of your sports gear is clean, fresh, and ready for action. So, roll up your sleeves, grab your cleaning supplies, and get ready to tackle spring cleaning like a pro!
