If you wear a knee brace for a longer period, start certain odors to develop, which are not only uncomfortable, but you can deliver force to completely get from best knee brace, if not treated quickly. To prevent this from happening, I have a list of tips you provided your knees to wash bracket can use.
Tip 1 – The first thing I would recommend is to check the manual that comes with the clip. There should be some basic information on how to wash and maintain. If you do not come with one, most of the time you can find the manual by using a simple search on Google. (For example:. Go to Google.com, type “Pro knee brace McDavid User” and then click the Google Search button).
Tip 2 – For all kinds of key nonmetallic simply soaking the material (foam, plastic, neoprene, etc.) mixed in cold water with a small amount of detergent. For brakes with metal structure, you can remove the material clamp and dip, however, be aware that some material may be a little difficult to put back in the afternoon. Soaking instructions:
a. Fill a tub or sink with water
Second. Add detergent (1 tablespoon per 2-3 gallons)

re. Wash the moving material to knead with your hands and the material.
my. Rinse, rinse and rinse again.
They use too much detergent. If the material later rinsing, make sure that all the soap has been cleaned away. This is extremely important because remnants can breed bacteria and mold soap over time, thereby developing additional odors, what the purpose is contrary to what we are trying to achieve.
Tip 3 – Special products designed for sports equipment, such as the cleaning “Penguin Sport Wash brands.” They are more expensive, but they do an excellent job to eliminate odors.
Tip 4 – Some people put all their knee brace (metal materials and all) in the washing machine on the gentle cycle with cold water. Use only a small amount of detergent and, if possible, use an extra rinse cycle to ensure that all the soap before air drying is gone.
Tip 5 – A final step on the brakes with metal structure is to lubricate the hinges. A slight touch of red grease or fat self-sufficient.
It is highly recommended that you try these tips before odors develop.
