How to Care for Your Duvet Gloves

In the cold months, duvet gloves are your best bet for keeping your hands warm when it's freezing outside. These gloves excel in extreme cold because they're filled with high-quality duck or goose down, known for its excellent heat retention.

To ensure that your duvet gloves continue to offer the best protection against the cold, mastering the art of duvet glove care is crucial. With the right care routine, you can make the most of them.

The Basics of Duvet Glove Care

Duvet gloves are designed to provide superior warmth and comfort, thanks to their duck or goose down insulation. To ensure they keep you warm all winter, follow these essential care tips.

Cleaning Your Duvet Gloves

Proper cleaning is crucial for maintaining your duvet gloves' loft and insulation. Here's how to do it right:

Hand Washing

Start by filling a basin with cold water and adding a down-specific cleaner. Gently submerge your gloves and agitate the water to create suds. Rinse thoroughly until all soap is removed. Avoid wringing or twisting your gloves, as this can damage the down.

If you're looking for safe detergents for your down items, it's essential to avoid regular detergents. Many regular detergents have degreasing properties that can strip natural oils from materials like down feathers. They may also contain fragrances and additives that can stick to and weigh down the loft of the down, reducing its effectiveness. Instead, opt for specialized down detergents designed to clean and protect your gear effectively. Nikwax Down Wash Direct and Granger’s Down Wash are great choices.

Air Dry 

To keep your gloves or mittens in good shape, it's important to dry them properly after each use. Here are some easy tips:

Don't use heat: Avoid using things like heaters, hairdryers, or radiators to dry your gloves. Heat can harm them.

Air dry: Instead, let them air dry at room temperature. It's gentle and safe for your gloves.

Stand them up: To help them dry faster, stand your gloves upright. Warm air rises naturally, so if you place them off the edge of a table, between a wall and a basket, or something similar, it allows air to get inside and dry them effectively.


Leather Treatment with Waterproofing Wax

Consider using Waterproofing Wax for Leather, a water-based waterproofing cream designed for smooth leather. This product offers immediate and long-lasting water repellency (DWR), preserves breathability, and can be applied to both wet and dry leather surfaces. It's the perfect solution to keep your leather items protected.

Storage Tips

Avoid Compression

Don't store your gloves in a compressed state for extended periods. Instead, use a breathable bag or hang them in a cool, dry place.

Inspect and Repair

Regularly inspect your gloves for any signs of wear or damage, such as tears or loose stitching. Address any issues promptly to prevent further deterioration.
