If you have smelly boxing gloves, then you probably feel the need to do something about it, and fast. We already covered the ways to wash boxing gloves, but we didn’t go over if you could put your custom boxing gloves in the dryer.

Can You Put Custom Boxing Gloves in The Dryer?

The short answer: no. You shouldn’t put your boxing gloves in the dryer. It’s just not a good idea. There are so many other ways that you can dry your boxing gloves. These new ways stop you from running the risk of ruining your boxing gloves.

Here are some good ways for you to dry your boxing gloves instead:

  1. Air Drying – This is the safest way for your boxing gloves to dry. This is the most natural way, and isn’t hard on the material. The only con to this is the amount of time you’re going to have to wait for them to dry. Make sure if you air dry your gloves that you don’t need to be using them for many hours on end, because nothing is worse than having to box with wet gloves.
  2. Stuff them with newspapers – This is a way that isn’t used very often. Not many people know about this, but it greatly speeds up the process of drying your boxing gloves. You can still use the air drying method with this, and it also speeds it up because a lot of the wetness on the inside of the boxing gloves gets soaked into the newspapers.
  3. Use a Blow Dryer – A blow dryer to dry off your boxing gloves is just short of what putting them in the dryer would do. This is why you shouldn’t let your boxing gloves get too hot when you do this. Take breaks as much as possible because the heat could ruin the inside of the boxing glove.

This is also a way for you to consider drying your boxing gloves. This is an alternative method that can still keep your gloves safe.

Using these three methods are the ways that you should dry your gloves. Stay away from putting your gloves in the dryer because it can ruin your gloves. The material in the boxing gloves from how they’re made aren’t suited for this type of heat. Hopefully you now know a little bit more about how to take care of your custom boxing gloves.
