I like to wear gloves.
My everyday blue leather gloves with cashmere lining are filthy.
I think they get grimy from driving.
I also have a vintage pair of greige kid gloves that belonged to my mother which go perfectly with my trench coat. To tell you how old they are, they’re from Peck and Peck which went out of business in the 1970s.
To clean them, I put on a pair of the gloves and rubbed leather cleaner/conditioner lotion into the dirty areas, especially the fingertips.
Then I rinsed them with clean water and added a small squirt of blue Dawn which I rubbed around and then rinsed off.
I just let the gloves dry naturally.
They are much, much cleaner and ready for cooler weather.
Do you wash leather? Silk? Wool? Cashmere? Or send it out?
