Glove Care Tips

  • Keep leather gloves in a cool dry place
  • If gloves get wet, lay them out to dry in a warm place; never put them on a heater or in the oven.  This drys the gloves out and could be a fire hazard
  • Leather gloves intended for wet work should be treated with mink oil or similar waterproofing compound.  This usually darkens the leather.
  • Never wash fleece gloves with anything wool; wool tends to create a lot of lint that will stick to the fleece
  • Hand wash wool gloves and lay them out flat to dry
  • Depending on the dirt (not oil or paint), cotton gloves can usually be tossed in the washing machine with other laundry.
