Size Guide Tips
To find out your glove or mitt size, measure (in inches) around your hand with a tape measure across your palm. You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed.
The surface of most gloves/mitts can be spot cleaned simply by gently rubbing the soiled area with a solution of Woolite, and water. (Follow manufacturer’s directions).
Fabric gloves/mitts, even with leather palms, can be hand washed with sports wash or Woolite. (Follow manufactures directions). Be sure to rinse thoroughly to remove all detergent. It is a good idea to have your hands inside your gloves/mitts during the wash & rinse process to help maintain the shape of the gloves/mitts. Soap has surfactants that reduce the surface tension of water and dramatically reduce waterproofness. (Nikwax or a similar waterproofing material, works best). Be sure never to wring out your gloves/mitts, it will ruin the internal stitching and lining materials. You need to let the gloves/mitts air dry away from direct heat.
Clean the outside of leather gloves/mitts with a mild leather cleaner. It is recommended that you have your hand inside your glove/mitt as you gently clean it. After cleaning, you should spray your gloves/mitts with a silicone spray to protect the leather. As for the inside of the glove/mitt: it is very difficult to clean the inside of gloves/mitts. You could try using Woolite on a cloth and gently clean the inside or try spraying the inside with Febreze. Then you would have to let them air dry.
A second option is to have your gloves/mitts professionally cleaned.
