How to care for your golf glove?
Hello Fellow Golfers!
In this edition of Girls on the Green, I’ll be sharing with you some tips on how to care for your Cabretta leather golf glove so you get more wear out of it.
The first thing you should know is that you should never put your leather golf glove in the washing machine and avoid using your glove in heavy rainy conditions. Exposure to excessive moisture will dry the leather out. However, this doesn't mean that you can’t wash your globe using water. Here’s some tips on how to do this while maintaining the condition of your glove.
After each use, clean the surface dirt by wiping it off with a damp cloth and then rubbing it with a dry cloth.
Dampness will reduce the life of the golf glove. Avoid exposing your golf glove to excess moisture. Use your towel, rather than golf glove to wipe your damp head, face and forearms and use your bare hand to handle wet balls at a ball-washing station.
INVEST IN A SECOND OR THIRD GLOVE
It’s always a good idea to have a couple of gloves in your golf kit to rotate preserving the life of your golf gloves! Plus with Eighteen Eves amazing selection of glove patterns, you’ll be perfectly coordinated with every outfit in your golf-robe!
FOR A DEEPER CLEAN
- Dunk in warm, soapy water and carefully ‘knead’ it to loosen the dirt.
- Thoroughly rinse the golf glove with clean water
- Gently squeeze and place the glove on an absorbent towel to let it air dry. Don’t put it in the clothes dryer or attempt to dry it with a hair dryer. Application of heat will make the leather shrink.
- Put the glove on as it begins to dry to stretch it. It will harden a bit, but the warmth and moisture released by your hand will quickly loosen it up.
As we know, the cost of playing golf can add up. By investing in a good quality golf equipment like Eighteen Eves gloves and looking after them, can help keep your playing costs down.
