How to Clean Thinsulate Gloves

A pair of Thinsulate gloves can be a favorite cold-weather accessory, until they become soiled and smelly from extended use. While Thinsulate gloves can be made from several types of materials--such as Thinsulate, Gore-Tex, leather, wool, lambs' wool and fleece--care instructions typically indicate not to wash. However, if you use gentle cleansers and take the necessary care in washing and drying, you can safely clean your Thinsulate gloves at home using regular household products.
