    HOW TO TREAT YOUR LEATHER GLOVES AND MITTENS - Complete Guide

    People ask all the time how to waterproof or care for your gloves or mittens. Here’s our solution for all your questions...

     

    CG’s gloves and mittens are made with 100% of the finest genuine leather allowing us to keep our commitment to producing some of the best gloves in the world. Taking care of your leather gloves and mittens extends the life and durability of them. With quality in mind, we wanted to share our knowledge of how to care for your leather gloves and mittens to ensure their fullest capabilities and last longer.

    Everyone always asks questions like "Can you wash leather gloves?". "Do they shrink when they get wet?". "How do i waterproof my gloves?"... and the list goes on... We have you covered with the good and the bad for your leather gloves or mittens.

    How to Waterproof Leather Gloves and Mittens:

    We all need to remember leather is a "skin" so there is some natural resistance to the outdoor elements. It doesn't mean it's waterproof by any means.

    There is quite a bit of waterproofing solutions out there like Nikwax etc. but theres no need to put  harsh chemicals on your gloves or mitts especially if its something that comes in contact with your skin or face. 

    Our solution is ALL NATURAL COCONUT OIL. It soaks in to the leather nicely and doesn't have any harsh chemicals or odors like other waterproofing solutions.

    1- Take 1tsp of room temp coconut oil and apply to palm

    2- Vigorously massage into the leather while wearing both left and right sides for 5-10 minutes.

    3- Let the coconut oil soak in for 12-24 hours before using.

    4- Repeat after heavy use or when leather is aging.

    How to Properly Dry your Leather Gloves and Mittens:

    NEVER DRY THEM WITH AN EXTERNAL HEAT SOURCE! No heaters or fires! You should always air dry in normal room temp. Your gloves should be left to dry in their own time to prevent them from cracking and drying out.

    How to Clean your Leather Gloves and Mittens:

    Usually not necessary, but in certain cases you might need to wash your gloves or mitts. NEVER COMPLETELY SUBMERGE IN WATER AND NEVER USE A MACHINE WASHER! Our method to cleaning a leather glove or mitten is taking a warm wet washcloth (fully rung out) and rubbing it along the glove or mitten while wearing them. Baby wipes work as well. If you prefer to use soap use a small drop of body wash and wipe with a fully rung out warm wash cloth. No hand soap! Remember to always let them dry naturally.

    Don't forget to use a natural product like ALL NATURAL COCONUT OIL to keep your mittens in pristine condition to make them last!

    Live Your Habitats.
