Also soaking in white vinegar and then do a wash with normal laundry detergent and 1/4 cup of some more vinegar

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.

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.
