Damp gloves can set your skiing holiday back very quickly if you don’t have an efficient solution to dry them. Carried by my own experience, I want to share you a couple of great trips how and how not to dry ski gloves.
A good pair of ski gloves costs quite a lot and it would be a shame to ruin it by drying it incorrectly or not drying it at all. Here are some dos and don’ts when it comes to drying ski gloves.
Act immediately – The longer your gloves stay wet, the bigger the possibility for mildew to form. They can also form a bad odor If you wait too long and good luck with getting that out! So dry ski gloves as soon as possible.
Dry under direct heat or in clothes dryers – Drying your ski gloves with a hair dryer, on a heater or near open flames can damage or even burn your gloves. On the other hand, clothes dryers can melt some parts of the gloves and shrink them.
Twist and turn the gloves – Your first instinct might be to twist the moisture out, but that can damage the fabrics. In the same vein, turning them inside out is also not recommended.
