How to properly clean leather gloves?

Cleaning leather gloves requires some care and patience. Here are the correct cleaning steps:

Preparation materials: warm water, neutral soap, soft towel or sponge, leather care agent. Fill a wash basin or container with warm water and a generous amount of mild soap. Be careful not to use cleaners with acidic or alkaline ingredients as they may damage the leather.

Use a towel or sponge dipped in soapy water and gently wipe the surface of the leather glove. Avoid excessive rubbing or using a harsh brush, which may scratch the leather. Pay special attention to cleaning the inside of the gloves, which can harbor stains and bacteria due to constant contact with skin and sweat. Gently wipe the inside with a damp towel or sponge.

After cleaning, rinse away any remaining soap with clean water. Make sure all soap is rinsed off thoroughly to avoid leaving spots or residue on the leather. Gently dry the surface of the glove with a clean towel or paper towel. Do not use a hot dryer or expose to direct sunlight to dry, as this may cause the leather to harden or discolor.

After the gloves are completely dry, apply leather conditioner. According to the product instructions, use an appropriate amount of maintenance agent to apply to the surface of the gloves, and then wipe it with a clean cloth until the surface of the gloves is shiny.

Finally, keep the gloves in a ventilated and dry place and avoid exposure to moisture or high temperatures to prevent mold or deformation.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the above steps will work with some leather gloves but not all types of leather. Some special types of leather gloves, such as suede or waterproof-coated leather, may require special cleaning methods. Please check the product instructions or consult a professional first.
