comment How to maintain the hygiene of rockclimbing shoes?
I'm only doing this once every few months, and it's fine on the rubber (although the toothbrushes you see at the gym are for brushing chalk off of holds). I suppose if you were doing it all the time the drying could take it's toll eventually. Keeping them in a bag for an hour is probably fine, as long as you're good at remembering to always take them out. I'm not so good at that.

After trying powders, I'd recommend against them. They work in the short term, but they can build up over time. When your feet sweat while climbing, it can mix with any residue creating a very slippery environment in your shoes.
