How to wash boxing gloves.

What the smell?!

Now it’s okay that they’re nice gloves and what luck you can’t pull, but every time I hear them, they smell like crap.

Those who practice combat sports know that gloves are the faithful companions of every training and every meeting for this reason it is essential to take the utmost care both as INTEGRITY OF THE PADDING and with regard to hygiene.

This is important to you but also to the people you work with who I don’t think like to get in touch with your smelly gloves.

Keeping your gloves clean and tidy is important for several reasons.

First of all to avoid the formation of germs and bacteria, which in addition to causing bad odors, on the other cause irritation and mycosis to the hands and arms.

There are some habits you need to follow to keep them clean “without cleaning them”.

✔ Wash your hands before wearing gloves. Do you arrive at the gym after work? Avoid tucking into gloves with dirty hands. Use soap and water.

✔ Don’t lend your gloves to others! Think of them as your underwear, don’t do this.

✔ Don’t leave your gloves in the duffel bag. Once you’ve finished your workout, open them as much as you can and put them to dry in a warm, dry place until they are completely dry. Put borotalco to facilitate drying. An alternative to the duffel bag can be the breathable protection bag.

✔ Use sanitizing sprays

If you sweat you suck and the gloves are smelly, try that.

If you haven’t been able to save your gloves from germs, bacteria and bad smells with the tricks you just saw, you can wash them with a cloth or towel dipped in water and ammonia, or water and bicarbonate.

I advise against soaking the gloves completely in the water, let alone putting them in the washing machine to prevent the outer surface from being roved, be it leather or synthetic material.

Once you have washed them put them in a warm and dry place to dry.

I suggest an “extreme” technique, bag your gloves and put them in the freezer for 24 hours.

Once the gloves are removed from the freezer, sprinkle with baking soda and leave them in an envelope for another 24 hours.

So you eliminate the bacteria that generate bad smells.
