I know that there's great debate surrounding whether to iPod or not to iPod while running...<br><br>
I love my iPod when I run, actually - especially at the gym because of the shite radio station they insist on playing there. I also use the iPod when outside, but at a low volume so I can hear stuff going on around me, etc. The thing is - the armband I use to take it with me REEKS!!<br><br>
My question is twofold:<br><br>
1) Anyone else have this issue? (please say yes)<br><br>
and<br><br>
2) How on EARTH can I get the nasty, funky smell off my neoprene iPod armband thing?? It smells like a corpse's fart.<br><br>
I tried just soaking it in detergent to no avail. I actually offended someone with it.<br><br>
Any ideas?

Couple of ideas...<br><br>
Have you tried Febreze on it?<br><br>
How about soaking it in baking soda solution? Baking soda is pretty good at soaking up odors.<br><br>
Or try soaking it in a strong solution of water and white vinegar.<br><br>
Good luck.

I don't know which one you have, but I have the nike + one (neoprene I think). It actually has wash instructions on the inside of the band. I put it in a lingerie bag and washed it with woolite. Air dried in a few hours. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Stink B Gone!

Glad I'm not the only one who's had this issue... I really thought that since it resisted everything (yes, even Febreze!), maybe I had especially funky sweat. Like a super-power. But not a cool one.<br><br>
I was too cheep, cheep, cheep to get the "official" Nike+ armband, so I lack washing instructions - but I will try each one of your suggestions in turn.<br><br>
Thanks!
