General hints for professional care and cleaning of leather gloves

All unlined gloves are exposed to sweat, especially on the ball of the thumb and the fi ngertips. This sweat hardens the leather until it breaks. Held gloves are as sweat-resistant as we can make them, but you can extend their durability with the right care.

  1. Clean your gloves in tepid water using mild soap or special leather cleanser
  2. Wash in clean water afterwards to remove chemical residue
  3. Wrap the gloves in dry cloth and squeeze (no mangling!)
  4. Air-dry the gloves (no heating, direct sunlight or dryer)
  5. Do not use fabric softener
  6. Put the gloves on when still wet and clench your fists to mould them back into shape
  7. Put on the dry gloves and knead to make them soft
  8. Treat the gloves with a leather care product

General hints for professional care and cleaning of textile gloves and gloves with climate membrane

  1. Wash the gloves by hand with mild soap
  2. Wash the gloves with clean water afterwards to remove chemical residues
  3. Do not squeeze or mangle the wet gloves
  4. Air-dry the gloves (no heating, direct sunlight or dryer)
  5. Do not use fabric softener or bleach
  6. Do not dry-clean

If only the inner lining of a climate membrane glove needs to be cleaned, you can use water with a little mild detergent on the inside of the glove without having to clean the (leather or textile) outer shell.

Impregnation

Well impregnated gloves are dirt- and water-repellent. A wet upper causes a loss of heat. Therefore good impregnation protects also against cold. The upper is already impregnated when manufactured. As the impregnation looses the effect with use over time (when water does not roll off anymore), the gloves should be treated with a commercial impregnation spray.

Extend the lifetime of your glove with the correct care and maintainance!
