5 step guide to washing golf gloves
Fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a small amount of mild detergent.
Place the gloves in the water and gently agitate them to distribute the detergent. If there are any areas that are particularly dirty, use a soft-bristled brush or sponge to gently scrub those areas.
Rinse the gloves thoroughly with clean water to remove all the soap. Make sure to remove all the soap residue as it can cause skin irritation or damage the gloves.
Gently squeeze out any excess water from the gloves, being careful not to wring or twist them. This can stretch or damage the material.
Lay the gloves flat on a clean towel and allow them to air dry. Avoid direct sunlight or heat exposure as this can damage the material. Once the gloves are dry, they are ready to use again.
