Washing your boxing gloves is one of the most important steps after each use. It will ensure the longevity of your gloves, and will also keep them smelling fresh.

The first step is to start by removing excess moisture from your gloves. You can do this by stuffing them with newspaper or paper towels for at least an hour.

Then, place the gloves in a bowl of soapy water and let them soak for ten minutes.

After the soaking period is over, rinse them off and dry them with a towel.

How Often Should You Clean Boxing Gloves

Boxing gloves must be properly cleaned and disinfected after each use. Proper cleaning will help your gloves last longer, prevent the transmission of diseases, and help avoid unwanted odors.

The gloves should also be air-dried before they are stored in order to protect them from the damaging effects that mildew, bacteria, and fungus can cause.

How To Remove Boxing Gloves Bad Smell

The sweat and the hand wraps can leave your gloves smelling like something you don’t want to come in contact with.

Luckily, there are a few ways to get rid of that nasty smell.

One way is by putting your gloves in the freezer overnight. This will kill off any bacteria or odor-causing microbes that might be lurking in your gloves.

Another option is using an enzymatic cleaner, which will break down proteins that cause odors.
