The Unique Benefits of Sani Sport

Ever been the person who is standing in a room wondering what that smell was only to realize it’s you? It’s your skate—your equipment.

Sani Sport SanitizerWell, we hear this a lot. Of course, customers do not want their equipment to have “that” smell, but it’s inevitable, even for the average athlete. 

And even if the smell is not the biggest factor, many people struggle with how to properly clean their equipment. Most people use water and some sort of cleaning agent hoping this will do the trick. This takes up a lot of time and energy, and…it doesn’t really work.

Here’s why: Not many people realize, beyond the not-so-pleasant smell of their sports equipment, a lot of harmful bacteria lives on the equipment that can be dangerous, if not treated.

Sports equipment is the ideal place for bacteria to set-up shop.

MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus for those of you who want to get technical) is a dangerous bacterium that has impacted many NHL and NFL players in recent years.

Players have been hospitalized, and even worse, lost limbs to this harmful bacteria.

So, what can you do?

In our shop, we use a Sani Sport Machine to clean equipment. This is a pretty special process because it doesn’t use water to clean, but rather ozone: A natural gas with strong oxidizing properties. Ozone cleans without changing the look or feel of your equipment and killing 99% of the harmful stuff. 

The best part is the machine can fit an entire bag of equipment – even your mouth guard!

We recommend regular sanitization for athletes. Even if you are using your equipment once a week, it is worth sanitizing. It’s easy, inexpensive, and convenient. Not only will you finally rid your equipment of “that” smell, but you will also be taking the best precaution against any harmful bacteria impacting your game, and your life.

Remember, we are all about you putting your best (and cleanest) skate forward.
