Do’s and Don’ts of Glove Care
3/9/2010
Just like any other tool, your ball glove works best if you take good care of it.

Rawlings offers the following tips to make sure your glove is in fine condition as long as you need it:

• Do keep a ball in your glove when you are not using it.
• Do condition your glove occasionally to prevent drying and cracking.
• Do wear a batting glove to keep sweat from drying and cracking the leather inside your glove.
• Do tighten your laces routinely because leather could occasionally loosen.
• Do condition your glove with Rawlings Glovolium leather treatment oil.
• Don’t submerge your glove in water because you run the risk of cracking or drying it out.
• Don’t put your glove in the oven or microwave.
• Don’t dry your glove using a heat source such as a hair dryer.
• Don’t buy a pre-broken-in glove. They are not as durable and will not last as long.

Over time, any glove will begin to break down. Rawlings offers a wide variety of gloves with the latest features to suit your unique needs. However, if you’re too attached to your old glove to purchase your next Rawlings glove, you can have it repaired or restored.

For this service, Rawlings Gear recommends Kenny Jenkins Glove Repair, (417) 683-2207 or kennyjenkins@hotmail.com. Business hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central time.
