Are you a proud owner of our Fairtex gloves?
If you are, then you know you're equipped with some of the best gear in the business.

These gloves are not just an accessory; they're an investment in your training, performance, and overall experience in combat sports. But like any investment, they require proper care to ensure they serve you well for years to come. 

In this guide, we'll delve into the essential tips and tricks for taking care of your Fairtex gloves, helping you maintain their quality, hygiene, and longevity.

  1. Cleaning your Fairtex Gloves:

    • Start by airing out your gloves after each use. Leaving them in a well-ventilated area helps prevent odor and moisture buildup.
    • For routine cleaning, wipe down the exterior and interior of the gloves with a damp cloth or antibacterial wipe. Pay extra attention to areas that accumulate sweat.
    • Avoid submerging your gloves in water, as this can damage the materials and padding. Instead, use a mild detergent or specialized glove cleaner sparingly on a cloth to gently clean the surface.
    • After cleaning, allow your gloves to air dry completely before storing them. Stuffing them with newspaper can help absorb moisture and maintain their shape.
  2. Deodorizing and Disinfecting:

    • To tackle persistent odors, sprinkle baking soda inside your gloves and let it sit overnight. The baking soda will absorb moisture and neutralize any smells.
    • Alternatively, you can use specialized glove deodorizers or antibacterial sprays designed for sports equipment. Spray a small amount inside each glove and let them air dry thoroughly.
    • Regularly disinfect your gloves to prevent bacterial and fungal growth. You can use disinfectant sprays or wipes, ensuring they are safe for use on sports equipment. Remember to wipe off any excess product and allow your gloves to dry completely.
  3. Maintaining Glove Shape and Padding:

    • Avoid leaving your gloves in extreme temperatures or direct sunlight, as this can cause the materials to degrade and the padding to lose its shape.
    • After each use, gently wipe away any excess moisture from the padding to prevent mold or mildew.
    • Periodically inspect your gloves for any signs of wear and tear, such as loose stitching or flattened padding. Repair any damage promptly to prevent further deterioration.
    • Consider investing in glove deodorizers or moisture-wicking inserts to help absorb sweat and maintain the shape of your gloves over time.
  4. Proper Storage:

    • When not in use, store your Fairtex gloves in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and humidity. Avoid leaving them in closed bags or lockers for extended periods, as this can promote bacterial growth and unpleasant odors.
    • If possible, use a glove deodorizer or moisture absorber inside your storage area to keep your gloves fresh between uses.
    • Consider investing in a glove drying rack or hanger to allow proper air circulation and prevent moisture buildup inside the gloves.

Your Fairtex gloves are more than just gear; they're an essential tool in your training arsenal. 

By following these simple yet effective care tips, you can ensure that your gloves remain in top condition, providing you with comfort, protection, and performance for countless training sessions and sparring matches to come. 

Remember, a little care goes a long way in preserving the quality and longevity of your Fairtex gloves, so don't skimp on maintenance. Your hands will thank you for it!
