However, you need to clean them carefully as your gloves can get harden once dried after the cleaning process. If this happens, what should you do to fix it?

You can avoid hardening your gloves by following these tips:

  1. The very first thing you need to do is to take your toothbrush and use it to clean your gloves as much as possible.
  2. The next step is to take a bucket with cold water. Add some salt and mild shampoo to it. Now dip your gloves in soapy water and rub the dirt with your fingers. Don’t forget to pay extra attention to the fingertips of your gloves. Once the dirt is out, gently squeeze out the water without twisting your gloves. Then put each finger on an old-style clothespin. It will prevent the fingers of your gloves from deforming.
