I use a shitload of antibacterial hand soap with a brush and then white vinegar solution bath. Seems to do the trick.
My buddy swears by using denture cleaner in a large ziploc bag and letting the VFF's soak in them for a while. Scrub, rinse, then throw in the washer for a cycle.
I use them whenever I'm in the gym now. Squatting, deads, cleans, snatches, etc are so much better in them.
I ordered some NB Minimus trail zeros but had to exchange to size down (most reviews said to size up and I did, oh well), so they should be in my hands by the end of the week.
