Tips to maintain cricket batting gloves in good condition.
Don’t wash the glove in a washing machine.
Steps to clean your batting gloves
To remove surface dirt, take the gloves to outdoor and shake it nicely. Put on the glove after shaking.
To get rid of dirt, scrub your glove with dry leather brush. After brushing, take the glove off and shake it out again.
In a bowl of lukewarm water mix two to three drops of hand dishwashing liquid. Suds should not be seen. You can also use commercial leather cleaner.
Dampen a sponge with the water and squeeze it out. If you are using commercial leather cleaner, saturate the sponge according to the package directions.
Put the glove on again and wipe it clean with the sponge. Use a gentle touch to avoid saturating the leather with water.
Rinse the sponge with plain water and squeeze it out. Wipe the glove again to remove any soap.
Clip the glove to a clothesline or hanger with clothespins. Hang the glove to dry outdoors or in front of an open window.
Apply leather conditioner to the dry glove according to the package directions.
Avoid using any liquid cleansers on gloves along with any cleansers that are oil-based.
