Cleaning Your Glove

No BS Cleaning. 

We could sell you some snake oil but all you need is simple dish soap and water to clean your glove.

Cleaning Your Glove

Start by removing any dirt with a soft brush. A Shoe Shine Brush with 100% Soft Genuine Horse Hair Bristles would be best. You could use a toothbrush if thats all you have. 

Use about 1 cup of warm water and mix in a tablespoon of pH-neutral dish soap or one that has a pH-balance of around 7. I've found that original Palmolive dishwash liquid soap offers the lowest pH-balance available for any dish soap. If you can't find Palmolive, you need a pH-neutral detergent.

Dab your Horsehair Shoe Shine brush into your soapy water mix and gently scrub your glove to remove dirt.

Remove excess soapy water from the glove with clean cloth and allow it to air dry.

Now you can condition your glove with Maven's Leather Balm.

Chemistry 101

A substance with a pH of 7 is neutral; anything lower than 7 is increasingly acidic, with 0 being the most acidic, and anything higher than 7 is increasingly alkaline, with 14 being the most alkaline (or 'basic').

Anything on either side of the scale may harm your leather glove so be sure to use a pH-neutral detergent.
