    How to wash wraps?

    My slingshot wrist wraps smell like a goats *******. I figured it'd be best to use hot water, not boiling, mixed with vinegar. Any tips?

    Can't you just toss them in the washing machine? I don't see the material on them getting weaker or breaking down if they are washed infrequently

    That's what I would do if I cared, which I don't. If you're worried about the machine beating them, just throw them in the sink with whatever soap you've got in reach.

    Most stuff like this says wash with warm soapy water and let air dry.

    Funny as it sounds, I use a hand operated tumble washer (linked below) for our slingshots, gloves, any compression wear (elbow and knee wraps, copper compression sleeves, compression hose, etc), and all my good/expensive T-shirts that cost $20+ each. I air dry everything afterwards on the clothesline.

    Of course you could hand wash too, but the tumble washer is much faster and more thorough than hand washing. Plus less mess, less time, less water, and far less wear/tear on expensive clothing. Just my 2 cents.

    They are going to end up smelling worse with the vinegar.

    You can try freezing them to kill bacteria...

    Toss it in a mesh garmet bag and throw it in the washing machine on gentle. The wraps aren't going to last forever, so don't lose too much sleep over just using the things.

    i was going to mention this. i realize they're $40 bucks a pair, but how old are they?

    you might try letting them dry in the sun and see if that doesn't help with the smell somehow...

    Arm and Hammer pet odor carpet powder works if you don't want to wash these items. Sprinkle on, place in sun for a day or so (rotating, flipping over, reapplying powder, etc)....expect the scent of the powder to last about a week or so before dying down (hence the reason I didn't mention it above).
