Stinky sports bags. Between sweaty shoes, dirty shin guards and sweaty T shirts it seems like gym bags don’t stand a chance.
We’ve been wiping ours out after each use, but the stinky smell never quite seemed to go away…until now.
I used some of our essential oils to create my own homemade sports bag spray and the smell is gone.
Homemade Sports Bag Spray
- small spray bottle
- warm water
- lemon essential oil
- melaleuca alternifolia essential oil (tea tree oil)
We have started to explore essential oils and I love the idea of using them in place of cleaning products with lots of chemicals. To make the gym bag spray I chose the melaleuca and the lemon to help cleanse and sanitize the bags.
I filled the bottle with some warm spring water and added 4-5 drops of lemon and 3-4 drops of melaleuca and then sprayed it inside the bag. And the smell was gone! Thank goodness.
