Soakers are essential ice skating equipment. They are terry cloth blade covers that protect and keep figure skating blades dry.
- Ice Skate Soakers
Also Known As: Figure Skate Cloth or Towel-Like Blade Covers
Through the years, ice skate soakers have become fancier, but simple soakers do the job.
Figure skaters should not walk in soakers, skate guards should be used for walking on concrete and other other surfaces.
Also, ice skating blades should not be dried with soakers. Instead figure skaters should dry their blades thoroughly with a towel or cloth, then the dried blades should be placed in soakers.
