To maintain and clean hockey training cones, follow these steps:

  1. Regular Inspections: Regularly inspect the cones for any damage or wear and tear. Check for cracks, splits, or any other signs of deterioration that can compromise the cone's durability.
  2. Store Properly: When not in use, store the cones in a dry and cool place to prevent any direct exposure to extreme temperatures or sunlight. Avoid stacking heavy items on top of the cones, as this can cause deformation.
  3. Cleaning: Use a mild detergent or soap mixed with water to clean the cones. Gently scrub the cones with a soft brush or sponge to remove any dirt, grass stains, or grime. Avoid using harsh cleaning agents or abrasive materials that can damage the cones' surface.
  4. Rinse and Dry: Once cleaned, rinse the cones thoroughly with clean water to get rid of any soap residue. Then, allow the cones to air dry completely before storing them. Avoid using heat sources like hair dryers, as excessive heat can warp or melt the cones.
  5. Disinfecting: To remove any bacteria or germs, you can disinfect the cones using a mixture of water and a disinfectant solution. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the disinfectant for the appropriate dilution ratio and application method.
  6. Remove Stains: In case of stubborn stains, you can use a mixture of baking soda and water. Apply the paste to the stained area, gently scrub, and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing off.
  7. Regular Replacement: Although regular cleaning and maintenance can prolong the life of the cones, it's essential to monitor their condition over time. If any cones become damaged beyond repair or are no longer safe to use, replace them promptly to ensure safe training sessions.


Remember, proper care and maintenance of your hockey training cones will enhance their longevity, ensure accurate training, and prevent injuries during practice sessions.
