Wash the gloves in soap and water (I put them on and act like I'm washing my hands). After they dry, soak them in mineral oil laxative. After working that in well, you can blot them so they aren't so oily with any old rag or paper towel. Bee suits are usually washed. Best to remove the veil and hand wash that. Wash it on gentle by itself so you don't get venom and propolis on other clothes. Hang it on the line to dry.
