I havemy gloves smelling just like new every week without costing much, well other than electricity bill.

Get your gloves, place them in a plastic bag, find some space in your fridge/freezer and freeze your gloves overnight after a sparring session.. next day place them on the radiator for a number of hours, let them unfreeze.
this kills all the bacteria inside your gloves that causes the odour.

no need to buy products and stuff that just kills thebacteria, do it yourself with your freezer.

Webster has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'm sure that freezing gloves would do the job, but what does it do to the life of your gloves? Seems like it would cause the gloves to crack from the contract/expand process

I've been using the fabric softener sheet method, and that's been doing the trick. Thanks again for everyone's input!

One thing you can always do is to get a spare set of gloves to use while you air out the originals. I personally now own 4 pairs of boxing gloves and 2 pairs of grappling gloves. I have the boxing gloves in regular rotation where I use one pair for the week while I let the others air out. I usually spray some Lysol into them and shove a set of glove dogs into them.

I've heard great things about Glove Dogs and using Fabric softner sheets.

But, has anyone tried febreze?

It's an old thread, but it could still be interesting to some people. I've tried a "grandmother's tip against smelly shoes" which seems to work fine and doesn't cost much. After training I've put baking soda into my gloves and distributed the powder thouroughly. Then after one or two nights I've used a vacuum cleaner to get the powder out of the gloves. I'm not sure yet how long the effect will last, but I think doing it once in a month would be ok.
