Equipment Care

  • Clothing should be washed as you would any other white clothes however you SHOULD NOT use chlorine bleach.

  • Lames should be hung in the shower and spray rinsed.  It is not recommended to use cleaners on the lame. You can then either let it drip dry or use a blow dryer on it.

  • Fencing shoes should be cleaned based on the manufacturer's care instructions.

  • The Mask can be washed by itself in the dishwasher with the dry cycle turned off to avoid damage.  An alternate methods: 1. Place the mask in a 2 gallon bucket of water with a capful of Woolite and a touch of ammonia and then rinse well.  2. Spray the mask with a gentle cleaner and then spray it off .  Hang it to dry or place it in front of a fan. 

  • Washable gloves and socks can be washed normally in the washing machine.  Leather gloves can be wiped down with Woolite and water.  They can be placed in the washing machine but can become stiff afterwards and will need to be worked to soften.

  • Chest Protectors or anything made of plastic, Kevlar or fiberglass should be wiped with a mild detergent and water and then left to air dry.
