How to Wash Ski Gloves
Ski gloves can protect your hands and allow you to have a better grip on the skis while out on the slopes. In time, dirt, sweat, wax from your skis and other debris can accumulate on your ski gloves. Washing your ski gloves can keep them in good shape and prevent hand irritation while skiing. You must be careful when washing your gloves, though, or else they could lose shape or become too stiff for you to use.
Things You'll Need:
Mild hand soap
Liquid fabric softener or baby shampoo
- Cold water
- Mild hand soap
- Liquid fabric softener or baby shampoo
Fill your sink with cold water. The water shouldn't be ice cold, however, as your hands will be in the water.
Put one tablespoon of a mild hand soap into the water.
Add one tablespoon of either liquid fabric softener or baby shampoo to the soapy water. Doing so will help to remove odors from the ski gloves and keep them soft.
Place the ski gloves into the sink. Allow them to soak for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Use your hands to squeeze the soapy water through the ski gloves and to wipe debris from the gloves. Do this underwater to fully wash your gloves.
Remove the ski gloves from the sink and hang them so they dry. It may take a long time, up to 48 hours, for the ski gloves to completely dry. To speed up the process, you could hang the ski gloves outside (unless it's below freezing) or place them in front of a fan.
