How To Clean Boxing Gloves

Need to know how to clean boxing gloves?  Look no further. Chances are, your boxing gloves don't have that fresh out of the packaging smell right now and your opponents are cowering from the odor they are emitting. Although cleaning boxing gloves is fairly easy, it can be time consuming.

To clean boxing gloves you will need: 

  • Febreze
  • A Clean Cloth
  • Glove Deodorant
  1. Spraying Febreze or a similar product inside of your boxing gloves is the first step in cleaning them. Products such as Febreze not only help to freshen your boxing gloves, but they have antibacterial properties that can help to reduce the amount of bacteria growing inside of your gloves.
  2. Let them dry. Once you spray your gloves down, leave them opened wide so they can air dry.
  3. Use a glove deodorant to clean your boxing gloves. Glove deodorants can be found at your local sporting goods store or online. The deodorants are designed to clean your boxing gloves while helping to keep them fresh. 
  4. After using your boxing gloves, wipe them off. Not only does wiping your boxing gloves off help to keep them clean, it gives you an opportunity to check them for cracks. Use a soft cloth to wipe them down every time you get into the ring.

The most important thing to remember when cleaning your boxing gloves is to air them out as much as possible. Your hands sweat a great deal when wearing boxing gloves and can cause strong odors. Simply airing them out after use will reduce odor and eliminate bacteria.
