Companies like CleenFreek have worked on developing an array of preventative products. Towels ($13, good for 100 washes), shower sandals ($25), and floormats ($25) are all treated with an antimicrobial to kill bacteria. It prevents odors and attacks staph and the more severe methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) which is resistant to most oral antibiotics and often requires hospitalization. MRSA has been contracted by many of the Rams. A wash-in detergent is also available, that when added to a normal rinse cycle, once every 75 washes, coats everything from jock straps to jackets with the antimicrobial agent. A surface protectant (not just a one-time cleaner) can be used as a long-lasting barrier for workout machines, floors, artificial turf, or any high-risk surface. The company even offers nasal swab testing ($25-$35 per player) to determine which athletes are carrying the bacteria asymptomatically (this could be one-third of population, according to CleenFreek). A positive test could be treated with an antimicrobial nasal gel.
