A member PMed me a question but the system crashes every time I try to respond, so here goes (I hope Baptism finds it!):

At the end of a season, I'll use a little Lexol cleaner to get the dirt off (I never scrub, you can damage the leather surface that way). Then I'll add a light coat of Obenauf's LP (which is pretty much beeswax) inside and out. This will seal moisture in and keep sweat out.

I only use Lexol conditioner when leather feels dry or in the hinge/palm/web when I am breaking a glove in.

Yeah, this and the mobile ads are a bit annoying. Anything that can be done?

Hi Rous!

Thank you for responding. I was wondering what had happened. Thank you for the help. Overall, on a scale of 10, what would you give my well used glove? I'm in love with it, so I'm biased. But I am wondering what all the game use has done to it.

Looks to be in great shape! A little beeswax on the lining once per year and wipe the dust off and you ought to get many more years of use.

By no scrubbing, I mean you can wipe the glove out with a microfiber towel and some of the Lexol cleaner (follow the direction on the bottle), but if the dirt seems stubborn, don't really scrub the spot. Instead, get the area a little wetter and let it sit using the water to loosen up the dirt. You can literally scrub the finish coat off the leather.
