About Clean Gear of Connecticut

Introducing Clean Gear of Connecticut - We Clean all sorts of Gear!

Welcome to our website! Here you can learn about our Gear Cleaning Services – how we clean sports equipment, our horse blanket cleaning services, professional turnout gear cleaning and other household goods we clean, decontaminate and restore.

In short, Clean Gear of Connecticut cleans, sanitizes and then dries and packages a wide variety of athletic, recreational and professional gear. We also clean household items not normally cleaned by conventional or standard dry cleaning methods. For example, we clean Ugg Boots, soft goods such as bedding, pillows or stuffed animals and other heavy-duty items like camping gear, leather shoes, boots and purses or pocketbooks.

We know stench and filth

The company is owned and operated by Jeff Owens, who knows the bio-contamination found in dirty hockey gear as well as the excessive filth that can be found in horse

blankets firsthand. Jeff grew up in hockey locker rooms as a player, toting bags of smelly gear from home to the dressing room and back. His experience continues as a hockey and then lacrosse coach. What’s more, he married into a farming family so he knows exactly what horses roll around in. Now, his children spend their time in rinks, on the lacrosse pitch or mucking around in hayfields or stalls. It’s only natural that he got into gear cleaning services – this business is a natural extension of how he spends his nights and weekends.

Cleaning Process

The centerpiece of our operation is our Esporta® ES 3300 Equipment Washer and Dryer. Originally developed in Canada to clean hockey equipment, the Esporta ES 3300 uses specially formulated non-contaminating detergents, sanitizers, and hydraulic pressure to remove a variety of impurities and contaminants:

– bacteria – blood – yeast
– fungus – mold – dirt
– perspiration – smoke – soot


During one of the 28 factory-configured cleaning and drying cycles tailored to unique types of soft or hard goods, your gear is placed in a protective mesh bag within a section of the Esporta ES 3300 to protect it while all organic, as well as inorganic contaminants, are removed. Once the cycle completes, we package your gear for pickup or delivery.

Located conveniently in Wallingford, Connecticut, we can clean for any team, group, organization or business here in Southern Connecticut. We can arrange for pickup of volume orders or you can drop off during our open hours.

We had advanced to the semifinals. It meant a three-day hotel stay. There was NO WAY we were going to make it with 18 bags of stinky, stinky gear. We called Jeff at Clean Gear and he picked the gear up on a Wednesday, cleaned it Thursday and had it back to us Friday morning before we left. - Mark B., Hamden Midgets
