How to Make Wide Receiver Gloves Sticky Again
Spit on the gloves or pour water on them, then wipe them hard on a towel or shirt.
Put your gloves in the dryer on extreme heat immediately before use.
Put warm, dissolved melted sugar water on your gloves, let them sit for a few seconds and then wipe them off.
- If playing in a recreational league, consider spraying "Stick-Um" on your gloves or rubbing them with pine tar, but check the league rules before doing either. These methods are illegal in sanctioned leagues, such as college and the NFL.
- Be careful when trying to make gloves sticky, as this could be considered an unfair advantage and player could get warned or disqualified.
