Can you wash leather gloves?

Although usually the gloves should not be exposed to water it is still possible to wash them by hand. Do not machine wash leather gloves.

You'll need:

  • Our Leather Soap or Marseille soap. It is important to use a gentle soap with moisturizing ingredients.
  • Two pieces of sponge
  • Famaco Delicate Gel. (Gloves made from the finest leathers should not be exposed to spray or cream containing silicone.)
  • A dish for water
  • Leather Brush
  1. Wear the glove in your hand. Do not immerse gloves in water as lining materials with natural fiber may shrink if the water temperature is too high. Please also note that gloves with fur lining or otherwise containing fur should not be washed with water.
  2. Brush all excess dirt and dust off the leather.
  3. Wet the sponge and squeeze excess water.
  4. Use a sponge to foam the soap and gently rub the leather in circular motion. Work in sections. When you have cleansed a section use a clean side of the sponge to clean the leather of excess soap.
  5. Let the glove dry on a towel in room temperature for 15-30 minutes. While the gloves are still slightly damp gently put them on to restore their original shape.
  6. Repeat the process on the other glove.
  7. Now is time to apply the gel. Wear the glove in your hand. Use a clean sponge. Work in sections with gentle circular motions. A little goes a long way!
  8. Let the gloves dry for 15-30 minutes.
  9. Use a leather brush to make the leather shine and to remove excess product.
