If your leather gloves are in need of a wash, there are simple steps you can take to clean them. For a quick spot clean, dampen a cloth and use a mild soap to gently rub the dirt off of the leather glove. For a deeper clean, holding your gloves under running water and rubbing them with soap will help remove all of the dirt. Make sure you let your gloves air dry and put them on occasionally while they're drying so that they form to your hands.

Using Damp Cloths

1Dampen a paper towel or clean cloth. 
A soft microfiber washcloth works well, but a clean paper towel will also work. Place the cloth or paper towel under clean running water to get it wet and then gently wring it out to remove excess water.
  • The cloth or paper towel should be damp but not dripping.

2. Use a mild soap to create a lather with the cloth. You can purchase a soap specifically designed for leather, or you can use the mildest soap you have in your home. Put some soap on the cloth and rub it together, creating a lather on the cloth.
For example, saddle soap is a good option for your leather gloves as it cleans the leather while also protecting it.
You can purchase a soap like this at a big box store or online.

3. Rub the leather gloves with the sudsy cloth gently. Try to work the soap into the leather using the cloth, rubbing very gently so as not to ruin the exterior. Pay special attention to the dirty areas of each of your gloves.
It may be easier if you put on one of your gloves and clean it with the cloth using the other hand.

4. Use a clean, damp cloth to remove the soap and dirt. Dampen another cloth or paper towel just as you did with the first one, wringing it out so that it’s not dripping. Use this to gently remove the dirt and soap from the gloves with repeated rubbing motions.
  • Make sure you get all of the soap off of each of your gloves.

5Repeat the process if dirt still remains on the gloves. If you notice that there are still some dirt spots on one or both of your gloves, use a sudsy cloth to rub the dirt away gently. Use another clean damp cloth to remove the soap again
