The smell of sweat is not attractive! Do stinky, smelly sports gear and clothing intrude on your senses?  What about smelly shoes that have been on sweaty feet all day?   Norwex has an amazing enzyme-based product, Sportzyme, which eliminates organic odor from shoes, high heels, work boots, equipment bags, shoulder pads, knee pads, skates, cleats, helmets, air casts and more.

The special bio-active formula in Sportzyme contains dormant, non-pathogenic, fast-acting microbes and enzymes that break down and eliminate the organic residues which cause odours.

When sprayed on a surface, these microbes feed off food sources such as sweat, urine and other organic matter present on sports or work equipment, clothes, footwear, or other gear.

These microbes release enzymes that break down the organic matter into smaller particles, which allows the microbes to digest the organics and convert them into water and carbon dioxide.

Key Features:

  • Destroy organic odours completely.
  • Based on natural enzymes.
  • Formulated with enzymes that target organic odours.
  • No animal testing.
  • Non-aerosol pump.
  • Container is recyclable, HDPE #2.


  1. Shake well before using.
  2. Spray over the entire surface where the odor is present.
  3. Apply heavily for the first application.
  4. Allow time to work.
  5. Reapply after 48 hours if needed.

Sportzyme is regularly used at our home! From hockey equipment, the girls’ basketball shoes, winter boots… everything gets a good spray to eliminate the odour!

I once did a presentation for a lady who jokingly told me that the Norwex Sportzyme saved her marriage.  Her husband had played hockey for years.  He had a routine after each practice or game which involved placing his hockey gear, including the gloves, on all the heat registers around the house.  YES, it REALLY STANK!!  The whole house was rancid.  She purchased a bottle of Sportzyme which her husband now uses faithfully after each game and, to their delight … his gear is odourless!

Do you have a stinky shoe closet?  Leave the Sportzyme bottle on the top shelf of your closet for easy access.  Give your footwear a quick spray and in the morning your closet will be scentless.

Many are skeptical about this product, until they try it.  At my parties, I state that I’d stick my head into my husband’s hockey bag… without hesitation!  There is NO odour!

Did You Know?

Enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts, capable of speeding up chemical reactions, which help complex reactions occur everywhere in life.  They bind to the reactants in a chemical reaction and assist in the reaction without being changed at all themselves.

Science has been able to identify approximately 3,000 enzymes in the body, and each one of them carries out a very specific task. Most enzymes are used for the body’s normal metabolic processes (digestion, breathing).  Certain enzymes ensure that, in the case of injury, the blood coagulates and the wound heals, while other enzymes control the production of important hormones in the body. Enzymes also destroy environmental toxins and disease-causing free radicals and can kill intruding pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and fungi.
