How to Clean Puck Marks Off Goalie Equipment

By Hillary Marshall

Submerge a foam sponge eraser in warm water. Lift it from the water and wring it out so it is moist but not saturated.

Rub away the puck marks on non-porous equipment with the foam eraser. Don't rub too hard or you may damage your equipment. Remove all the marks you can with gentle blotting and rubbing.

Mix 1/3 rubbling alcohol and 2/3 water in a spray bottle. Shake well. Spray mixture on any remaining puck marks on your non-porous hockey equipment. Wipe away the excess alcohol mixture with a clean towel. The alcohol is a solvent and should dissolve what remains of the puck marks.

Saturate a sponge with warm water. Add a few drops of dish soap and wring the sponge out. Wipe down all non-porous equipment to remove all dirt, debris and stain removal residue. Dry the equipment with a clean towel.

Set your washer to a gentle cycle with warm water. Add a mild laundry detergent and 1 to 2 cups distilled white vinegar. The vinegar will help remove puck stains and odors from hockey clothing without damaging it.

Put all porous hockey equipment in the washer; pads, jersey and pants. Allow wash cycle to complete. Check that puck stains are gone. If they are still present, repeat the wash cycle with detergent and vinegar.

Remove hockey gear from washer when puck stains are gone. Hang to dry in a well-ventilated area.
