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.
Wash by hand and not in the washing machine.
Wash the gloves with lukewarm water and regular laundry detergent.
Gloves with leather parts should not be washed, but cleaned with a wet cloth.
Do not use aggressive solvents or harsh cleaners.
Do not use softener for gloves with membrane.
Additionally be aware of any care instructions on the inside of the glove.
Let the gloves dry slowly by air.
Keep away from radiators or other sources of direct heat.
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.
As a natural material, the outer appearance of leather may be slightly changed in the course of time.
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.
