Leather Glove Care:
Soak gloves in water overnight
Brush off propolis with a toothbrush.
Wipe down with methylated spirit.
Leather will go stiff after washing gloves. Putting them on and working the gloves when they're almost dry will help to soften them.
Never soak gloves in hot water, as shrinkage can occur.
Never bleach gloves as this will rot the stitching.
If you have to check for AFB it is best to use disposable nitrile gloves over your leather gloves.
