How To Clean Up Gear After Sports in Camden 29Mar 2014

Whether you have children who play sport in Camden or play sports yourself, you will likely know just how much of an issue it can become to deal with muddy and sweaty sports equipment following the completion of the work out or match. When it comes to keeping a clean home, those involved in sports will often have to find a way to focus on keeping the sporting equipment as clean and tidy as possible at the risk of affecting the other areas of the home. But when it comes to dealing with things such as muddy boots and sweaty jerseys, what are the best ways in which to deal with the fall out of being involved in sports or any similar kind of physical activity (such as the gym)?

Perhaps the most important thing is speed. When it comes to physical exertion, it can often be the case that immediately thinking of the cleanliness of your home in Camden, NW1 might not be your first concern when utterly exhausted. Similarly, children or teens might find that they are too tired to give proper thought to the best way to deal with muddy boots and will put this off until a later date when they have recovered slightly. However, a quick and speedy response can often be essential when it comes to finding the best way to limit the effect of sweaty sports clothes on the rest of the home. If you know that you will likely have a lot of clothes to clean following an event, make sure that you have the washing facilities ready and waiting to go when you arrive home. Doing so can mean that you can deal with the issue as quickly as possible, preventing the likelihood of the smell reaching other areas of the home or for the sweaty clothes to get left unattended to and become more difficult to clean properly. Setting the wheels in motion before you have had a chance to sit down means that you no longer have to worry about carpet cleaning after leaving a sweaty, muddy pile of football kit on the bedroom carpet.

When it comes to muddy football boots, these can be one of the most difficult things to deal with. Again, it helps to make sure that they are dealt with as quickly as possible following a match in order to prevent the mud caking on the football boots and becoming harder and more difficult to remove. A wash basin full of hot soapy water as well as an old tooth brush can easily help shift the mud which is likely to build up and then all that remains is to leave the boots out to dry for as long as necessary, making them ready to wear for the next time.

Perhaps the most important thing to deal with is the clothes which you or your child might have been wearing during the sporting event in Camden. Likely to be sweaty, muddy and host to all sorts of bacteria, not only is it advisable to make sure that this kit is dealt with as quickly as possible, it is advisable to wash it alone in order to prevent the chances of cross contamination. Football and most sports kits are typically made from synthetic materials, so if you will be using a washing machine it will be advisable to check washing instructions before continuing. Those shirts which have personalised name and numbers on should often be washed inside out in order to preserve the lettering and the numbering for the longest possible time.
