I had some Vibrams that smelled like death. I pre-soaked them in efferdent over night, threw them in the washer and the smell was gone.

Why dont you just wash them and dry them in dryer :)
That works for me though.

You should start using Defense right after training so you don't get that problem

Fill the sink with hot water, some laundry detergent, baking soda, a cap full of bleach and soak your gloves for 2 hours. The bleach, if used in small amounts, will kill odor causing bacteria or mold that could be on your gloves and won't destroy them. Then rinse them very well in cool water, ring them out, and either dry them in dryer with a dryer sheet or hang them in the sun. That should solve it!!

I had that issue, too. Ever since I am putting my gloves inside a mesh bag. That way they always get aired out.
