Care Instructions for GORE-TEX gloves

GORE-TEX gloves are made to last, but they’ll last even longer and perform better with proper care.

How to care for your GORE-TEX gloves
From motorbiking down a highway to skiing in the middle of winter, you want your GORE-TEX gloves to keep your hands dry, comfortable and protected. To keep them in adventure-ready condition, follow these easy glove home care instructions and be sure to check the manufacturer’s care instructions on the inner label too.


  • Shake out the glove to make sure there’s no grit or dirt inside the main hand chamber and finger cavities.
  • Hand wash in lukewarm water. 
  • Only use a small amount of liquid detergent
  • Don't machine wash (machines can be too rough) or dry clean
  • Don't use fabric softeners or bleach 
  • Gently squeeze water off, from the fingers to the wrist.
  • Line dry. Position the gloves with the wrists pointing down. 
  • Shell gloves can be tumble dried on a low heat setting.
  • When gloves are half dry, put them on and make a fist to restore their original shape.
  • Don’t place in the sun, or on a heater.
  • Don't iron your gloves.
  • When water no longer beads and runs off the gloves after washing and drying, you’ll need to re-apply a durable water repellent (DWR). 
  • Use  the pump spray DWR product of your choice. 
  • Use a water-based leather care product for leather gloves.
Special Care

Do not place damp leather gloves on other garments: dyed leather can stain when it is wet. • Do your best to protect gloves against damage from buckles, ski edges, and other sharp objects.



Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully. • Use a pre-wash treatment. • Make sure you rinse the stain removal product off thoroughly before washing.
