    Default Washing Batting Gloves

    Any suggestions on how to wash them without ruining the gloves?

    Wouldn't just wiping them down work? Maybe a little Lysol spray inside.

    A leather cleaner might work.

    I don't know.... I usually just buy dd a new pair once the smell gets unbearable....lol. She really likes the pair she has now and wants to know if I can get the smell out. I have never washed a pair of batting gloves and wasn't even sure if you can without ruining them?

    You can't get that stink out no matter what you do, it's like baked in. You can buy new ones but they will smell the same when she gets them broken in.

    My friend Kavin who works for P&G recommends using Bounce or Downy dryer sheets inside the gloves.

    When they take off their gloves attach them to the face mask so they can air out verses being waded up.

    Have them put the glove on and take a tooth brush with mild soap and water and do not soak the gloves just get the dirt off. Then use a blow dryer to dry them off.

    I just throw them in the laundry, with everything else. Just don't dry them.

    What about washing them in a pillowcase? They wouldn't have direct contact with any of the parts that could snag them. I agree with newtson above, do not dry them.
