TOO MUCH GLOVE OIL
Gents/Ladies.

I just bought a brand new glove but I put way too much oil on it. One of the worth reps told me to put it in the oven for 10 min at 350 which I did even though I knew that wasn't porbably right. It still has a lot of oil and it is very stiff...What is the best way of removing the excees oil and soften it. Thanks in advance for yoru advise.

C U at Glen Burnie, MD this weekend.

great advice if you want to start an oven fire, lol, leave it out in the sun and just let the oil absorb, plus you can try wrapping it in a cotton towel and let the cotton wick out some of the excess oils

Was that said on the 1st of the month?


If you haven't ruined it by now, and it's still sopping wet, you might try placing adsorbent material, cloth, paper towels etc, in the finger areas, in the folds of the glove, where you catch balls and around the glove then drive on it to squeeze the oils out. Maybe it will help remove most of the excess.

just noticed the post with same info but I hope you get it semi right.

Modi funny u mentioned the fire...when I took it out it was smoke everywhere...and the house smelled fro few days...LOL. I have left it out few times when is warm and sunny, it is getting better...I wanted to use it this wknd at Glenn Burnie, MD. but I guess I will use my old dog until I can get this one right. Thanks guys.

Paco, I hope it didn't get ruined... I knew a guy who did the same decades ago, and it was 'toasted'. His wasn't new though, just wanted to soften it up but was hard as a brick when it cooked.  
Smoke was really bad then too. We were outside and it cane out the windows.
Lesson learned.
Good luck.

Gunny2...You are killing me. That is a good one!!! LOL. Hey when are you coming up north? I am playing 50AAA with a bunch of retired Marines I guess they need a little Navy guidance. LOL. I believe my custom glove (PR flag and my name stenciled) is going to be fine. I came up with the bright idea of putting it in the dryer with a lot of wet towels and it seems to do the trick, it feels much softer and the oil is gone, right now I have tight with a ball inside of it. Will see when I get home this afternoon. Thank you all.
