How Do I Clean Leather Golf Gloves?
Golf gloves take a beating. The soft and supple leather has to absorb sweat, the wear and tear of gripping a club, and swinging it, along with the unsavory conditions presented by a golf bag commonly left in the car trunk or the garage. Because of these factors, golf gloves tend to break down quickly, creating holes and the need for a replacement.
You can keep the leather on your glove from breaking down by washing your golf glove. All it takes is a little time and effort.
Rinse the glove off in cold water. You'll want to remove any dirt on the surface of the glove and get the leather thoroughly wet.
Fill your bucket with cold water and approximately 2 tbls. of dish detergent.
Place the glove in the water and swirl it around. Use your hand to agitate the soap in the water, allowing the motion to remove ground in dirt particles and sweat.
Place the glove back on your hand after two hours of air drying. This will help to stretch the leather, preventing it from shrinking.
