How to Clean Mold off Your Leather Gloves

Posted: 26 Dec 2010 09:00 PM PST

Hey guys, Jon here again. Leather, like many other materials that get damp and sit in a dark area, can get moldy. So, if you keep your riding gloves in the tail compartment of your motorcycle or anywhere else dark, chances are, mold will form. Whether it is a jacket, a purse, or gloves, treatment for leather mold is easy. Check it out.

Another remedy for mold on leather is mixing one part rubbing alcohol with one part water, then applying the mixture to the mold. Wipe clean with a towel. I did not mention this in the video because many motorcycle riding gloves are made with treated leather. You know, to make those bright colors we have. And alcohol can sometimes act as a paint stripper. So be careful and test a small unseen area before slathering it all on.

A general warning though, many mold types can cause allergic reactions. Clean moldy leather outside or in a well-ventilated area. Wash your hands thoroughly afterward.

Stay tuned for more updates.

I have this website that currently ranks usually in the top five for the keyword Tire Chains. It has been ranked number 1 on Google in the past and I hope to get it back there.

Today’s post is brought to you by the good folks over at the Tire Chain Dealer. If you are headed to the mountains for some serious shredding and need chains that are easy to install, check them out. They have many installation and product YouTube videos to make it easier to know what you are getting into when you purchase their products.

The most popular product is the Grip which installs in less than two minutes per tire and costs less than $100. So remember to check out Tire Chain Dealers before heading to the snow.
