How Does Kit Fresh Work?
Unlike the masking effect of many other deodorisers, Kit Fresh eliminates the smell of sweat in sports equipment. By tackling the source of bad odours, Kit Fresh leaves behind a fresh mint smell for a clean and odour free feeling. Free from harsh chemical ingredients, it’s also environmentally friendly, so safe to use around children and animals.
Containing task-specific bacteria and enzymes, Kit Fresh works by encapsulating the source of the odour and sealing it in. The bacteria then get to work to break down the proteins and lipids that create the odour. Once broken down, the enzymes get to work to digest them completely.
Does Newspaper Make Shoes Smell Better?
There is a common misconception that packing out your shoes with newspaper will make them smell better. Newspaper does have a use for shoes and could reduce certain smells, but it does not break down the odour. Newspaper absorbs the moisture in your shoes and as a result will remove any damp smells that you may have. However, it does not work for sweat. If you have wet football boots, we recommend you pack them out with newspaper after cleaning to absorb any moisture whilst they dry and to help them keep their shape. After the boots have dried, remove the newspaper and give the inside of the boots a spray with Kit Fresh to keep them smelling fresh and odour free.
