The worst thing I've ever smelled in my life is a tie between some fish I accidentally left in the trash before going on vacation and the inside of a hockey glove. I imagine all used hockey gear, and football gear for that matter, reeks pretty bad, but when I used to visit my cousins in Minnesota, the inside of a hockey glove is what one would shove in my face while the other pinned me down, so that's what establishes my standard. StinkBOSS says its deodorizing incubator can take hockey gloves, or any shoes, pads, hats, or other gear whose stench could make you pass out, swirl some ozone all around them, and hand them back to you smelling sweet as pie. Or at least neutralized.
StinkBOSS doesn't mask or absorb odors, it circulates ozone, an oxidant that kills the bacteria causing them. Other products take a similar approach, but StinkBOSS says its machine is superior due to a fully enclosed design that cleans gear inside and out, and the slightly elevated heat levels (70 to 75 degrees F) it generates while ozoning. Ozone molecules can eliminate up to 99% of bacteria and viruses without the use of chemicals or solvents, and with no negative impact on gear, gear users, or the environment. The StinkBOSS is sized to hold any pair of shoes up to 9-1/2" tall (e.g., high-tops, hiking boots) plus any other smelly items small enough to sit inside the 16-1/2" x 22" x 15" chamber.
