Any Good Methods Of Washing Goalkeeper Gloves?

Fri Sep 22, 2006 9:26 am

As the title says-

My method for washing keeper gloves:
-wash off all the dirt under warm water
-fold a towel around the gloves and walk on them
-hang them.

Any other/better way to do this?

We're talking Hockey, right?

I wash my hockey gear...gloves...pants...and other stuff that can be washed...in the washer. Delicate cycle. *shrugs...seems to work just fine.
This isn't where I parked my car...

just throw them in the sink with some water and detergent let them soak. Throw them in the machine on a spin cycle hang out to dry. Voila.

I was the goalie for 2 years in high school. This is probably the best option. Otherwise, if you have some handy-wipes (like used for your computer), those might be better. I was always afraid if I washed them, they would lose their adhesive qualities.

Mmm. Disagree. Wholeheartedly. Remove whatever stuff is in your gloves with a bit of care.

Voila.

I never washed mine except to get the dirt off with water. I never use detergent. I also kept them in a baggy to keep the surface moist. Dry foam is never good and doesn't help with grip.

If they get to smelly, it'd probably time for a new pair.

I usually went through 3-4 pairs a season.

A true goalkeeper lives for the audacious odor of their smelly gloves - don't be a panzie.  Wink

Tbar220 was a hockey goalie at his college in Illinois. He'd know.

As a soccer goalie in HS and college, I let the stank from my fingers and where they had been be a calling card.

No I meant put them in a bag, hold it and spin around really really really fast untill you either vomit or fall over.
