Any hockey mom knows that there is no smell on earth that comes near the scent of hockey gear. As a mom of three players, it is a battle we have tried to fight for years in our house...and most of all...in the car...on those long rides home from travel games. We've had very limited success, and it has never been long-lasting. Most other products on the market just cover up the smell, but do nothing to eliminate it. And the scent just seems to grow on the gear as the kids advance in age. For that reason alone, I entrusted this Fresh Wave review to my 15-year-old hockey player. Here's what he has to say about Fresh Wave:
According to the show, Sports Science, hockey gloves are the most odiferous of all sports gear. There is no exception when it comes to me, playing hockey almost every day of the week. By now my mom has learned to avoid me whenever I’m moving my hockey gear around. Thanks to Fresh Wave this is starting to change.
When my mom gave me Fresh Wave to try I was somewhat leery about how it would work. Well, with one over-night stay in my gloves, Fresh Wave pearl packs had managed to leave a fresh smell. I’m not sure how it overcame this atrocity of a smell, but it did. I’ve also started to utilize the Fresh Wave spray and crystal gel from the Stinky Dorm Kit to neutralize all of my gear.
Fresh wave should be making big waves soon in the deodorizing area. I think it works just as well as Febreeze spray and other products. The difference is it doesn’t leave a residue. It seems to suck the smell up rather then mask it. Fresh Wave is a safer, non toxic, healthier way to deodorize the worst stink possible. Thanks Fresh Wave.
I cannot concur with my son more on this. I was a true skeptic, and was unsure about how Fresh Wave would perform when we put it to the test. The laundry additive made a huge difference when laundering hockey gear and musty towels from the hockey bags, too! Fresh Wave sure makes those post-game congratulatory hugs much sweeter! I second the "thanks" to Fresh Wave!
According to the website, here's more on the science behind the product: Fresh Wave® natural odor eliminators use the power of nature and molecular science to get rid of organic and inorganic odors. Rather than masking unwanted odors, our products go to the source to destroy the odor. More importantly, Fresh Wave products use no toxins, so they are safe to use around people and pets.
