How to wash leather gloves?

leather glove

Whether you’re welding, working in construction or just challenging someone to a duel, your 

leather gloves will get dirty. Washing is a great way to increase a glove’s lifespan, 

unfortunately you can’t just throw them in the wash with your laundry and hope for the 

best. So how do you clean leather work gloves?


1. Use soap and water: This removes the natural oils that are present in the leather. No 

oils means the gloves will stiffen and become brittle, effectively shortening the life, use 

and comfort of leather gloves.

2. Use saddle soap: A few of you are probably yelling at the computer “USE SADDLE SOAP! 

IT’S DESIGNED FOR LEATHER!” You’re not wrong, it is. But again, soap emulsifies the natural 

oils in the leather but also, imagine the time it takes to massage the saddle soap into each 

glove — not cost effective at all.


Dry clean: This is your best option to clean leather work gloves because it keeps the oils 

and lets you get the most out of your gloves.
