How To Wash Your Keeper Gloves
- If you want to take care of your goalkeeper gloves wash them immediately after use in luke warm water.
- Soak the gloves in the sink and wash by hand, using your thumbs to gently remove the dirt – please do not apply too much pressure as this can tear pieces of the latex. Do not use any form of brush or scrubber to clean your gloves.
- It is not necessary, but applying a small amount of liquid dish soap to the gloves will help ensure that all of the dirt is removed and make the process quicker.
- Once you have removed all of the dirt, rinse the gloves in clean water and leave to dry naturally. Some gloves have a hook loop sewn on the wrist strap which you can use to hang them with.
