I wash my canvas gloves with no problems. At times I have used leather gloves also although the bees dont like the scent. With leather I wash them with as little of water as possible and then use a non scented leather conditioner on them and let them sit for a while to dry and get rid of any possible scent that might be there. I hope this helps.

:no:I washed my leather "orange" gloves with my white suit once. Then sent the white suit through three bleach washes and was happy to get the orange out. I'm glad I caught it before someone stuck it in the dryer.

I now only hang dry my suit.
