Are your gardening gloves dirty and ready to be binned? Maybe it’s not too late even when your precious gloves seem beyond repair.

Gardening gloves are actually made to become dirty and can be cleaned easily. If you follow our guide, they will look new again in no time!
Things you will need:
Dr. Bronner’s – Pure-Castile Liquid Soap
- Pure-Castile Liquid Soap
- Bucket with warm/hot water
- A sponge or soft brush
- An old dry towel
This is our simple guide on how to clean your gardening gloves. Follow these steps and your gardening gloves will look new again!
Total Time: 10 minutes
Fill a bucket with warm water
Fill a bucket with enough water to submerge your gardening gloves. The water should be hot but still comfortable to stick your hands in.
Add a couple of drops of Castile soap
Add about 10 drops (one drop for each liter) of castile soap to the water.
Put your gardening gloves in the water
Put your gardening gloves in the water and let them in for about 10 minutes. This will ensure the gloves are soaked and ready to be cleaned.
Clean off all the dirt using a soft brush
Remove the gloves from the water and remove any visible dirt. Once you are happy with how they look give them a final rinse with clean water.
Let your gardening gloves air dry
Once the gardening gloves are clean and you are happy with the result it is time to let them dry. The best way to let your gloves dry is by hanging them on the clothesline and letting them air dry.
Tip: Do not put your gardening gloves in the dryer. This will cause unnecessary wear on the rough, grippy material.
That’s it. Super simple and I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised by the results.
