    I'm with kidwoo on this one...mouth detergent in my chamois will definitely bring that minty fresh tingle to my taint and make my ride oh so much more...refreshing.

    I'd have to add some bleach, and maybe some of those cakes that go in the bottom of the urinal.

    Use "dermatologist recommended" Arm and Hammer detergent with no perfumes or dyes if you want to preserve breathability of your garments. Anything scented leaves wax behind that blocks breathable fabrics.

    Man if only I had some protec pads to wash.................

    Every time I've used listerine in my mouth, it's so smooth with no burning sensation at all. What a great idea to get it all over things that touch your crotch. I bet it's like standing on the wing of an F15 fighter jet with your fly open. I can't wait for my balls to tingle with minty freshness!!

    stoked on all the suggestions! thanks everyone. i saw the mouthwash thing on a surf website and it worked on my pads/helmet liners too, so thought i'd pass it along.

    Penguin Sport Wash, best detergent I've used. It's biodegradable and leaves no scent or residue and it works really well on everything from gortex to body armor BO.

    just in the shower body wash works great, rub on, lather, spray off with hose...

    2 Toms foot and shoe spray works good for when you dont have time to wash and dry your pads. www.2toms.com

    can't wait to soak Wentz in mouthwash at sea otter. Think it will get the smell out of him?

    I highly recommend using Woolite as the detergent
