my gloves smell like 2 year old gym socks that have been in your gym bag inside your gym locker for 2 years

lol washem dude. just think about it this way.Anything apparel wise you buy that isn't made to get wet then it is garbage since you did buy it to wear on a motorcycle

I washed mine last night. And then just put them on a fan to dry.

They smell ok, but I'll probably wash them again and start washing them more often.

Turn them inside out when you wash them. Most likely not dirt but probably dye from the leather.

You might be screwed bro... Gloves are like shoes... if you let them soak up the funk long enough then they turn sour. Throw some baking soda in the washer with them!:chair:

I just got done washing them for a 2nd time... they smell pretty good, but maybe just one more wash?

I'll try the baking soda deal too.

Right now, they are not bad, but I think I'll keep washing them often over the summer. I had no problem with them during the winter?

good call... yeah i go thru a pair of gloves a month. stunting eats up gloves and shoes... i actually go thru a left shoe in about 2 weeks.

2nd wash did the trick.

I'll just keep up with washing them ever so often ;)
