Drying out GK Gloves
Many of our soccer games are played in the rainy fall and spring seasons. Here are a few tips on drying out and/or washing your GK gloves after a game in the rain.
Here is how to dry out GK gloves after playing in the rain, or after washing them with a mild liquid hand soap or dish washing solution:
Lay an old towel flat on the floor and lay gloves face down and side by side on top of the towel. Fold the towel over the top of the gloves. Then step barefoot (or in flat shoes) on top of the towel getting pressure on each part of the gloves. Move the gloves to an dry spot on the towel and repeat. Then just leave the gloves lying on the towel to air dry.
Speaking from personal experience, a ritual that Rick Wilcox had was to always wash his gloves on the morning of a game day, so they were clean and just a little moist at game time. To wash GK gloves, lather hands with just a dollop of liquid soap and spread the soap over the surface of the gloves. Rinse and squeeze them out, and repeat over and over until the bubbles are all gone. Then dry as described above.
