Hockey Soup

Hockey Soup is perfect for a summer day. This recipe has been passed down in my family for generations. I decided to share with all of you. Happy cooking!

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Total: 30 min


  • 1 Pair of smelly Shoulder Pads
  • 2 Rank Elbow Pads
  • 2 Foul Smelling Shin Pads
  • 2 Funky Gloves
  • 1 Pair of Rancid Hockey Pants
  • 1 Old jersey
  • 1 Pair of Hockey socks
  • Tub full of water
  • Your favorite laundry detergent and/or NikWax
  • Salt and Pepper to taste *


  1. Play some hockey for 10+ years in your gear
  2. Realize your gear is disgusting and your teammates no longer want to sit next to you in the locker room.
  3. Find your nearest bathtub or buy a large plastic tub.
  4. Fill the tub with warm water and mix in your detergent, use whatever amount they list for a large wash. Your tub likely has 2 or 3 times the amount of water that a washing machine will hold, but that is fine. Since you are losing some of the efficiencies of the washing machine, it’s going to be harder to get all of the soap back out. Less is more in this case. If you’re using a plastic tub use less detergent.
  5. Swirl it around with your hands or an old hockey stick to get it all mixed in.
  6. Dump your gear in and do your best impersonation of a washing machine to move the gear around.
  7. After 5-10 minutes of this, drain the tub, and fill it back up with water.
  8. Without adding any detergent this time, repeat the agitation process with this clean water for another 5 minutes, and drain. You may need to repeat this rise step a few times to get all the soap out of your equipment.
  9. Remove your gear and let dry
  10. Go play! and enjoy all the new friends you will make in the locker room


* This is a joke, don’t add salt and pepper. It will ruin the taste
