If you find the task of cleaning gloves to be boring and time-consuming then consider some preventative care to reduce your cleaning efforts. Here are some quick and easy steps to keeping your boxing mitts Which is also called ‘ guantes de boxeo ’ in Spanish clean and deodorized:
Let Them Dry Completely
Drying your gloves after training sessions is essential. Bacteria and germs need moisture to survive. If you dry your gloves after every training session, germs won’t survive and your gloves will stay odor-free for longer.
After every training session, you should hang your gloves in a ventilated area or put them in front of a fan. They can also be dried in the sun.
Wipe Your Gloves After Every Use
Another preventative step for keeping your gloves fresh is to wipe them inside and out with a paper towel after every workout or match. Doing this will remove extra moisture from the gloves and minimize the growth of bacteria that can cause a stinky smell.
Do Not Put Your Gloves In Your Bag
Too many boxers and fighters put their boxing gloves in their bag right after training. This gives bacteria a chance to reproduce and grow. After a training session, avoid immediately putting your gloves in your gym bag. Take them home and let them dry.
Use Hand Wraps
Another method to keep your gloves fresh is by using hand wraps. These wraps act like a sponge and absorb moisture from the padding that is inside the gloves. This method works great, but you will need to keep the hand wraps clean. Dirty hand wraps can also start to stink.
