How to Remove Odor and Disinfect Sports Facilities or A Fitness Center Effectively and Efficiently With SNiPER

SNiPER is the perfect product with which to disinfect and deodorize sports equipment because it is non-corrosive and non-abrasive. This means that you can spray the soft grippy parts and not worry that they will corrode under the assault of harsh chemical disinfectants. Additionally, SNiPER receives the lowest toxicity rating that the EPA gives out in all 4 categories (skin, eyes, lungs and if ingested). SNiPER is an all purpose cleaner that will deodorize  and disinfect sports facilities quickly and safely.  You can spray everywhere and not worry about corroding your equipment or creating indoor air quality issues for your patrons.

Get a Power Sprayer

The best sprayers are sometimes called “fogger” sprayers. You can dial up or down the droplet size for maximum efficiency and effectiveness and this also makes them a quick way to apply. The better type of foggers are electrostatic, which imparts an electrical charge to the liquid coming out of the nozzle giving it a “wrap-around effect. This means little to no waste, so they are even more efficient. You could also use an airless sprayer, but you will need to find the right nozzle. Airless sprayers are not as good as a fogger, but can be used if nothing else is available. A good power tool can make it easy and quick to disinfect sports facilities that are large and have a lot of equipment. SNiPER is non-corrosive and won’t harm that equipment.

Locker Rooms and Lockers

Use a fogger sprayer to spray the air, walls and ceiling. Adjust the spray settings to a larger droplet size for this application procedure. For routine maintenance, you can dilute by 4 parts water to one part SNiPER. If it is the first time to use SNiPER in a problem area, do not dilute – use it full strength to obtain maximum results. Once the area is back to its pristine state, you can go back to using a more dilute mix to obtain maximum efficiency. Spray everything to deodorize and disinfect locker rooms and lockers.

For lockers, empty them of their contents. Use your sprayer to thoroughly wet the interior. You can even spray the equipment while it is out of the locker.

Shower Areas

If you can see mold growing in shower areas, spray directly on the mold. Allow to air dry. Give the mold 2 days to finish dying and then clean away any crud remaining by scrubbing with a non-scratching scrub pad. If the moldy areas are large, use a ‘fogger’ such as the Fogmaster Jr or the to spray the entire area. Spraying the air will also kill spores. Spray the floor to kill the fungus that causes athletes foot and other irritating issues.

For ongoing maintenance, use the fogger to spray the entire area periodically. You can dilute SNiPER by 4 parts water to one part SNiPER for this type of maintenance.

Workout Areas and Floor Mats

Use the fogger to spray fitness equipment. Spray a light mist that evenly coats the equipment.  Walk away and allow it to air dry.  Spray, and walk away!

The EPA says that only hard surfaces can be “disinfected”, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be made clean. You can dilute SNiPER by 6 parts water to 1 part SNiPER for “Sanitizing”. Read this article to learn the difference between disinfecting and sanitizing.

Gym Bags

Brush away any gross stuff that might be accumulating on the fabric. Spray liberally making sure that no spots remain dry. Allow to air dry naturally. Use a gentle scrub brush to work over and remove any stubborn stains.


Some plastic clothing can develop a stink that is hard to get rid of, because plastic is actually quite porous and the pores can become filled with sweat and microbes that produce the stink. It is NOT RECOMMENDED to simply spray the clothing items directly. Instead, find a small washtub that is just big enough to hold all the clothing. Add enough water so that when you put the clothes in, they can be completely covered by the water. Add 3 – 6 oz of sniper and mix it a little. Add the clothes and allow to soak. The longer the soak time, the less SNiPER is required to remove the stink. You may want to experiment a bit to see what delivers best results for you.

Some Things to Bear in Mind

You can dilute SNiPER by 6 parts water to one part SNiPER for sanitizing (kills 99.9% of germs). For first time usage or in highly contaminated areas, go with full strength for maximum effect, which is disinfecting (kills 99.999% of germs). For routine cleaning and maintenance, “sanitizing” is likely to be sufficient. Even with routine maintenance, you may still need to do a full treatment with undiluted SNiPER once or twice a year.

For both disinfecting and sanitizing, allow the surfaces you are cleaning to remain wet for 5 – 10 minutes. The longer it remains wet, the greater the disinfecting effect. Allowing it to air dry will produce the strongest effect.

You can clean, deodorize and disinfect sports facilities and equipment with SNiPER disinfectant, without harming the equipment.

My Mildew Stain Disappeared!

I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!

Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor

I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!

Rotten Potato Smell Gone!

There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!

Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew

I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.

Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell

Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.

Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.

A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!

Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!

Thank you, Ted!

Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!

We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.

Removed All The Feral Cat Urine

Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.

I Am Amazed at The Results!

I learned about Nok-Out from Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate column and had to try it. Shipping was so fast and your customer service is OUTSTANDING! I am amazed at the results! I even filled a tiny spray bottle to keep in my car. I won’t be wasting my money on any other cleaners anymore. You have a lifetime customer here. Thank you so much!

Cats Get Old!

Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!

Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann

We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️

“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”

Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!
