I broke open a brand new set of flight gloves today and the leather sticks to itself. Finger to palm, palm to palm, any leather that touches other leather sticks a little. It's annoying, and noisy.

How can I get rid of the stickiness without ruining the life of the leather? Toss 'em in the washing machine? Wash my hands with soap and water, while wearing the gloves? Rub them in dirt like you would with sap?

i'd say use dirt or powder. that should work, or just rub your hands together vigorusly with them

Rubbing my hands together just bunches up the leather and shifts the gloves around, because of the stickiness.

Now to go find some dirt here in the city...

Leather gloves? Wouldn't saddle soap and then leather protectant be a good idea?

Nomex flight gloves.... just wear them awhile.

Baby / foot powder...... Just rub some on the leather. Should take care of the stickiness.

I'd also suggest silicone spray, but I'm not sure how that'd affect the fire-retardant properties.

If that's not an issue, it would work well and also softens up the leather a bit.

I dunno,but, i'm sorry I got them sticky in the first place.
