I've been using the alcohol hand sanitiser stuff that you see all over the place to give the insides of my gloves a bit of treatment that and hanging them on the washing line in a howling gale . Seems to be working to some degree in that my gloves haven't yet attained the "scent of dead thing" that I associated with my last pair .
best way to wash equipment

I have put everthing (separatley), but skates and helmet in my top loading wash machine on the handwash cycle, and then hung to dry. I was scared it would ruin my gloves, but they turned out fine.
I had an old pair of cloth Bauer 4 rolls I tried to wash and they came out perfect. Just washed on gentle and air dried. Tried it with my new ones too and no issues other than some superficial scuffs. Elbow pads and shin pad liners worked as well. I try to do it once a month.

One of these will dry a locker room full of gear in 30 minutes or less. Mine finally died after 12 years or so, time for a new one this year.
I am a big on using a Vornado fan to dry out my equipment. gets a lot of air moving
