Cleaning Your Football: Preserve Its Performance and Longevity

When it comes to summer football, your football itself is a crucial piece of equipment that deserves proper care. Follow these pro tips to clean your football and ensure its performance and longevity:

1.1 Gather the Necessary Supplies

To clean your football, you'll need the following supplies:

  1. Mild soap or football-specific cleaner (our sports disinfectant here)
  2. Warm water
  3. Soft cloth or sponge
  4. Towel

1.2 Wipe Down the Exterior

Using a soft cloth or sponge dampened with warm soapy water, gently wipe down the exterior of your football. If you can, use our disinfectant wipes instead of a soft cloth to ensure the disinfectant process. Pay attention to any dirt, grass stains, or debris, and ensure that you cover the entire surface.

1.3 Rinse and Dry Thoroughly

After wiping down the football, rinse it with clean water to remove any soap residue. Then, dry it thoroughly using a clean towel. Avoid exposing your football to direct sunlight or excessive heat during the drying process.

Disinfecting Your Football Gear: Protecting Yourself and Others

Keeping your football gear clean and free from harmful bacteria and odors is essential for a safe and enjoyable summer football experience. Follow these pro tips to effectively disinfect your football gear:

2.1 Preparing the Gear

Before disinfecting your football gear, gather the following supplies:

  1. Matguard USA Football Gear Disinfectant
  2. Clean cloth or sponge
  3. Well-ventilated area

2.2 Spray and Wipe

In a well-ventilated area, spray the Matguard Disinfectant Spray generously on all surfaces of your gear, including helmets, pads, and other protective equipment. Ensure thorough coverage and let it sit for a few minutes to allow the disinfectant to work its magic. Then, using a clean cloth or sponge, wipe off any excess disinfectant.

2.3 Drying and Deodorizing

After disinfecting your gear, allow it to air dry completely. This helps to eliminate any lingering odors and ensures that your gear is ready for your next practice or game. Remember to store your gear in a clean and dry area to maintain its freshness.

Cleaning Football Gloves: Maintaining Grip and Performance

Football gloves are integral to a player's performance, providing enhanced grip and protection. Here's how you can effectively clean your football gloves:

3.1 Removing Excess Dirt and Debris

Before cleaning your football gloves, gently brush off any excess dirt or debris using a soft brush or cloth. This helps to prevent the accumulation of dirt during the cleaning process.

3.2 Hand Washing

Fill a sink or basin with warm water and add a small amount of mild soap or football glove cleaner. Gently agitate the water to create suds. Submerge your gloves in soapy water and carefully scrub them with your hands, paying attention to areas with visible stains or odors.

3.3 Rinse and Air Dry

Once you've thoroughly cleaned your gloves, rinse them under cool running water to remove any soap residue. Squeeze out excess water gently and then lay them flat to air dry. Avoid using a heat source or direct sunlight to accelerate the drying process, as this may cause damage to the gloves.
