I put mine on the top rack of the dishwasher, and then let them dry in the sun. No stink and no problems.

My gloves also have suede patches. I make sure the velcro is attached and throw them in the washing machine. Then I clip them to a hanger and let them air dry. I also throw a dryer sheet in my cycling bag so they take a little longer to get stinky!

Another vote for the washing machine and dryer - all of my gloves including the ones with leather or suede palms. I don't use a lingerie bag but I make sure the Velcro parts are well matched before pitching them in.

I only get the microfiber kind. I throw them in the wash and hang them to dry. They hold up beautifully. No leather.

I've never had an issue with washing gloves. Drying them is another story... Typically I throw them in a lingerie bag so the velcro doesn't harm other items then let them air dry. Typically only takes overnight to dry.

Good to know there are options. I really didn't think they would survive a cycle in the washing machine.

Thanks everyone for all of the feedback!

I get stinky gloves too... they are also leather, but I washed them in the washer with detergent in my load of jeans and they're fine.

I wash my stinky gloves in the sink in hot water with laundry detergent and baking soda, rinse WELL and let dry. A spray of lysol after each ride keep the bacteria out :)

Did you ever try baking soda like fill them w/ it. Then let them stay like that over night. Hang them in the sun.

You can wash them with detergent in the sink, hang to dry. I do it when they get that 'stinky' smell. They are suede and they come out fine. I also wash my helmet and dry it. I may do this every other week in the summer, or as needed.

It might be really humid and the never really dry. Check into and antibacterial material or soap and wash or spray them.

I have gloves many years old and they don't smell unless they don't dry properly.

My bike gloves (which I couldn't live without) have acquired the natural stinky smell that comes with riding almost 20 miles a day, three days a week, in the Florida sun.
They are made with suede, so I can't throw them in the laundry, and I'm too cheap to buy another pair every 3 months. Any ideas on how to get them clean and stink free?
