As highly technological and delicate products, wintergloves deserve and need special attention. Following some basic rules when using, cleaning, drying and storing the gloves will help maximzing their performance and durability.
Read through our care instructions step by step and learn more about how to treat your gloves right.
1. Avoid Washing
Always check the glove care label thoroughly. Each model is different and can have different specifications.
In general, we advise against hand-washing or machine-washing gloves.
Beware that washing gloves can harm the material properties and the functionality of the gloves.
If you need to clean your gloves, you can use a wet cloth.
2. Drying at room temperature
Let the gloves dry at room temperature.
Keep away from radiators or other sources of direct heat.
Direct contact with radiators deteriorate especially the palm material and harm their durability.
3. Leather treatment
Clean full-leather gloves only by wiping them with a wet tissue.
After drying, treat leather gloves with dubbin or a similar type of regular leather care product.
Be aware of any instructions written on the used leather care product.
The Reusch Leather Care wax enhances the durability of the leather and maintains its smoothness.
Store the wax at room temperature.
Being a natural material, the outer appearance of leather can change slightly over time. Nevertheless, this does not affect its performance in any way.
Do not expose gloves to UV-radiation like intense sun light or light from fluorescent tubes.
Store the gloves in a cool, dark and dry place.
5. Wearing tips
Many gloves come with an integrated storm leash that can easily be fastened around the wrist.
Small woven loops on the inside of the cuff make it possible to add external storm leashes.
Never grab the skis on their sharp edges, as they can scratch or cut the upper material of the glove.
