In a hockey playing household, equipment odour is a fact of life. Three hockey players in the house means three bags means three sources of stinky equipment. All hockey equipment stinks. Wet equipment stinks more. And short of stowing it outdoors, there are limited solutions.
One of my friends has been playing hockey for half a century. He has created a storage system with activated charcoal like that used in cat litter boxes that dries and deodorizes your hockey equipment. www.benchthestench.com provides a storage solution that solves the odour problem. Wives and girlfriends rejoice.
