    I usually just toss gloves in with the rest of my cycling gear on cold, and drip-dry the whole lot.

    Works for me...

    Nothing says class like a drying rack with a weeks worth of commuting gear sitting in the livingroom.

    That's what I do as well. Toss 'em in with the rest on cold. Hang dry. My gloves last a long time. Washing them regularly will actually make them last longer. Dirt and grit trapped within fabric abrades it and causes it to wear out faster than sending it through the wash on a regular basis.

    Nice lookin' gloves, by the way.

    Kidding.

    I just throw them in the washer with the other gear, just make sure the velcro is lined up perfectly. Drip dry.

    Excellent tip. I usually save my gloves and wash them with regular clothes, since the velcro likes to stick to the lycra and tear tufts of it off. Not a good thing.

    Toss 'em in the washer with the velcro strap closed and aligned this way the velcro will not stick to anything else.

    If it was a muddy ride I'll wash everything with a hose (to take all the mud off), prewash on the washer with a little detergent and wash it the good ol' fashion way and hang dry.

    My girlfreind wont let me out of the house if my duds aren't fresh
    She wants my riding clothes as soon as I pop in the door so she can wash them.
    Boy, does she have me trained.

    If they're part leather

    I would hand wash them in the sink. They'll probably last longer.

    I have Fox Digits which I've used for a season now. I throw them in the washer and the dryer and have had no problems. They come out of the dryer looking brand new.
