I typically just shove them back into the plastic sleeve from whence they came. Surely, there must a better way to store gloves to promote longetivity.

    I use a simple Ziploc bag to preserve my gamer gloves. Push all the air out then seal. Gloves last much longer this way for me at least.

    Use a glove keeper/form after playing (the one below is on Amazon) & then the zip-loc bag. I've gotten a lot a mileage doing this.<br />

    this is what I was told is good/best, as it allows for some air flow, but perhaps the ziploc is the right move?<br />
    <br />
    not sure <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I will be using a new gloves today, so I will try the ziploc and see what happens.

    I just keep mine attached to the outside of my bag and it stays supple. Keep it in your golf bag and it'll get stanky.

    I always carry 2 alignment rods in my bag. When I am finished with my round I just slide 2 fingers of my glove over the rods. They are always dry the next day.

    I wash my gloves on a regular basis...it's amazing how much salt, oils, and dirt they can accumulate. The only time I have to replace a glove is when the velcro wears out.

    Also, what do people do to store new gloves that they saving to use later (i.e., bought in bulk)?

    After play I put my glove in the mesh bin on my bag with the glove straightened out. When I get home I simply stick the glove (fingers up) on the umbrella handle on my spare bag and let sit for a few days. Like golf shoes you need to allow leather products like gloves a day or two of "rest" for a longer life. Never had a problem. I was always told you need to let the leather breathe after use so I don't know how effective sealing the glove in a bag would be.

    My dad likes to seal them in a freezer bag and then store them in the refrigerator. <br />

    Both. The bionic glove I can just throw in the washing machine. Other gloves I will wash with dish soap and give them a thorough cleaning/rinsing. At the same time I clean my grips too, because they too accumulate a lot of dirt/oils. The other day someone grabbed one of my clubs and asked if it was a new grip. No, I just keep them clean. My current grips are 8 months old, have seen close to 100 rounds of golf and many practice sessions.

    Good Lord, I'm jealous you've gotten in close to 100 rounds in the past 8 months. I'd have to add up the last 4 years to get that! Darn adulthood is ruining my golf game. To the original post, I also place my gloves back in to the package from whence they came. I simply fold the thumb over and neatly place them back - free of creases/wrinkles. It has served me well over the last 20+ years.<br />

    Do you do this if they are sweaty? or let them dry first. I have always just shoved in my golf bag.

    Always use ziplocs. If you keep a damp leather glove on your bag to dry it will Harden up.

    Q, I didn't start the game until I turned 50. Since my retirement I average more then 200 rounds a year. I have a lot of catching up to do!

    I used to shove mine in a pocket but then it smelled like... well, it smelled bad so now I hang it on my bag. I think because it's a synthetic leather it doesn't get hard.

    I put them back in the original packaging, nothing more. <br />
    <br />
    When any holes or tears start to develop they become practice gloves and at that point I just attach them to the straps of my bag.

    so what you are saying is that after a round of golf you put a sweaty leather glove into a ziplock bag that does not breathe? In the summertime, my gloves only last about a month and a half at most, then it is time for a new one. I just put them back into a breathable pocket on my golf bag.

    <br />
    <br />
    I use a nylon brush and dishwashing detergent. A dab of detergent on the brush, wet the grip, brush down the grip, rinse off grip, pat dry grip.

    I usually use all leather gloves and in humid weather it helps to have the glove dry out by placing it over the car ac vent.<br />
    Add a dryer sheet and goes back into the original package. Smells good and stays supple for a while.<br />

    Do not leave them in the car trunk in hot weather... they get very firmish after you sweat in them.

    I've always stuck them on the outside of my bag, either to the velcro glove grab or velcroed around the towel ring. I usually get ~half a season out of a glove playing ~2-4 rounds and ~1 range session a week. I've washed with dish soap a time or two and while the glove did come out cleaner, after drying it was also more hard/brittle. I usually give up on a glove for being hard/brittle before I actually develop a hole. I will say I don't usually soak a glove with sweat and keep it on the entire round including putting and in the cart... if a glove gets notably wet, it's either from drink condensation or handling a ball just plucked from the edge of the water (I play in the evening and collect balls along the way).

    Reviving an old thread here. Had a golf buddy tell me this: right after the round, wrap up the glove in a paper towel, and put inside an OPEN ziploc freezer bag. Supposedly the paper towel pulls the moisture out of it. Obviously you kinda have to plan ahead with this by placing these items in your vehicle. I'm a couple weeks into testing this method. Results yet to be determined.
