How to dry a wet baseball glove

This article, entitled How to Dry a Wet Baseball Glove, comes from Dawn Wells at Blogging Mom of 4.

Gloves get left out in the back yard and it rains or sometimes games are played through the rain. As long as it’s not down pouring or lightening, the game continues. Which makes for wet gloves.

1. With a clean towel, pat the inside and outside of your glove soaking up as much moisture as you can.

2. Cover with a good glove conditioner. We used the Nokona glove conditioner.

3. Let glove sit in an open, dry indoor location out of sunlight or a heat source. The conditioner will help pull the moisture out of the glove. Monitor and pat with a dry towel as needed.

4. If the glove needs re-shaping, you can place a baseball in the ‘pocket’ and wrap with a rubber band. Otherwise, if leather is still stiff, repeat the conditioning step and then just keep working the leather.

Hope that helps! It’s not the quickest solution but probably the best for the glove.
