GOALKEEPER GLOVE CARE
So you want to know how to look after your gloves? Well, you've come to the right place as gloveglu are recognised as pioneers in goalkeeper glove care.
We've outlined below some key tips to help you in your glove care and, if you follow these simple steps, your gloves will not only perform better but will also last longer.
Before, during and after play
BEFORE. When you buy new gloves best practice is always to wash them before use in luke warm water. This will ensure that any factory detritus is removed and that the latex is clean.
Always let your gloves dry naturally as direct heat my dry out the latex making it brittle and thus effecting the durability and grip.
DURING. During play glove grip can be enhanced using our gloveglu original, MEGAgrip or Stikee Stik products.
AFTER. To get the most from your goalkeeper gloves wash immediately after use in warm water before allowing to dry naturally, do not use a washing machine. We would advise simply washing them by hand and using the Keep 'Em Clean sponge and allowing them to dry naturally.
HOW TO WASH YOUR GLOVES
SPRAY & RINSE
Spray the gloveglu wash & prepare or Keep 'Em Clean FOAMA onto the palm of each glove.
We recommend to do this 4 to 6 times so all parts of the glove can face the spray.
Whilst wearing them, rub the spray or FOAMA into the gloves.
Make sure that you reach all the areas you want to clean! -you might like to use our Keep 'Em Clean Sponge to get into those difficult areas.
Wash the gloves under warm running water whilst continuing to rub together gently. Repeat these steps until you’ve got the results you want!
Once you’ve got rid of all the dirt, soak and rinse the gloves in warm water.
Gently squeeze out excess water. Last step...dry time! Give them a gentle rub with our Microfibre Towel to remove the excess moisture.
It’s always good to ensure your gloves are fully dry before using them again!
Let them dry naturally away from direct sunlight. This will decrease the chance of the gloves losing natural moisture (basically increasing the longevity of the gloves).
Use our Fresh 'N Dry Deodorizer for easy drying. BOOM! Clean gloves all year round.
MAKE 'EM GRIPPY
When you're gloves are dry you're ready to make 'em grippy again.
Select gloveglu Original for your newer gloves or MEGAGrip for those gloves where the palm has had more wear (typically your training gloves).
Spray 3-4 times on each palm and gently rub together.
Hey presto you've got your grip back!
Use regularly before, during and/or after play....or as often as you need depending on conditions.
