Machine Kills Odor and Bacteria on Sports Equipment

Posted: Updated:
Parents dealing their kids dirty, smelly sports equipment don't have to sweat it anymore thanks a first-of-it's-kind machine at Play It Again Sports in Fargo. This week, the sports store installed a Sani Sport cleaning machine. The device cleans and kills bacteria using ozone.

Matt Fowler, a co-owner at Play It Again Sports says the machine is used for sport equipment that you can't put in a regular washing machine. The ozone created by the machine penetrates the fabric or material and it not only kills the smell, but could also keep your athlete healthy.

"This machine takes the smell away and it makes your kid safe. It takes away that bacteria," Fowler explains. "If you have one sick kid on the team, next week you'll have seven or eight sick kids. If you bring your equipment in right away, it kills 100% of the influenza virus and you could prevent that disease from spreading."

Fowler adds that the NHL endorses the Sani Sport and every NHL team has one in their locker room. He says several NFL, major league baseball teams, and even government agencies use the Sani Sport for their uniforms.

It costs about $35 and takes about 16 minutes to clean a full bag of sports equipment. Play It Again Sports is located at 2501 45th Street South in Fargo.
