Whether you’re a professional boxer, a beginner in the ring, or an enthusiast of Muay Thai and boxing, it’s important to keep your gloves clean! Keeping your gloves clean not only eliminates odor and bacteria that can lead to skin irritation, but it also helps maintain the integrity of the material.
In this blog post, we’ll be talking about how to properly clean your boxing and Muay Thai gloves with step-by-step instructions. Let’s get started!
Step #1: Wipe Down Your Gloves
Before you start cleaning your gloves in earnest, use a damp cloth or paper towel to wipe down the exterior and interior surfaces of each glove. The purpose of this is to remove any dirt or grime that has accumulated on the surface since your last use. This will make it easier for you to tackle any stains or odors later on.
Step #2: Mix Up a Homemade Cleaning Solution
You don’t need harsh chemicals or expensive cleaners to get your gloves looking spotless again. All you need is some warm water and either mild soap (think hand soap), diluted vinegar, tea tree oil and/or baking soda mixed together in a bowl.
Make sure that the solution isn’t too thick; it should have more of a liquid consistency for easy application.
Step #3: Apply the Cleaning Solution
Apply the cleaning solution liberally all over both sides of each glove, making sure that its interior and exterior surfaces are completely covered. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes so that it has time to break down any grease or grime that may be embedded in the material. After 5 minutes have elapsed, use a soft cloth to rub down each glove until all of the dirt has been removed from its surface.
Once you’ve finished scrubbing down your gloves with the cleaning solution, allow them to air dry in the sun preferably on a flat surface before using them again.
With these simple steps, you’ll be able to keep your boxing or Muay Thai gloves looking fresh and new every time you put them on!
