It’s tournament season. That means lots of hockey, and lots of wet, stinky equipment. For those of us who drag the equipment to the hotel room to dry between games or overnight (if the hotel allows it), you know that the room can get both crowded, and smelly, in quite a short time. To top it all off, laying that equipment on the hotel floor could mean absorbing bacteria from the dirty floors onto the gear. (Gross!)
That’s why I was super excited to try the Rocket Sport Dryer – UV on the road at our first overnight tournament of the season. I was all over the opportunity to dry equipment in a small, enclosed space, instead of having it draped all over the room (that my son and I happened to be sharing with another mom and son). I was anxious to see if the Rocket Sport Dryer was worth all the hype, especially with the new UV feature to help kill bacteria.
It was a Saturday night in a hotel room when I first tested the Rocket Sport Dryer – UV. My son had played three games that day and his equipment and socks were drenched. With only a little effort, my Rocket Sport Dryer was unboxed and set up. The gear was hung, and the outer shell placed over the equipment (like a bubble). The fan and UV was turned on, and we were off.
I was amazed at how quickly the Rocket Sport Dryer worked. In just over an hour, the gear was completely dry! I will admit that there was a slight odor, but that was more because the gear started off a little funky in the first place. I later washed the gear with the Sport Wash and hung it to dry on the Rocket Sport Dryer the next time it was wet, and there was virtually no smell. The key to odourless drying is to use the sport wash first, get your equipment clean, and use the Rocket Sport Dryer-UV to help keep it dry and eliminate bacteria.
I am telling you. This is a VERY good product. If you have ever strewn equipment across your house or hotel room, this product is for you. And I haven’t found a better sport wash.
