Work. Wash. Repeat.

Clean hands are crucial in the fight against COVID-19. If you must go out or go to work during this unprecedented time, a mask and gloves can go a long way in preventing the spread of the virus. Frequently touched surfaces like door handles, tables, gas pumps, shopping carts, card readers, and our very own electronic devices, are hot spots for transmission.

Whether you're protecting yourself inside or outside of your home, wearing gloves when coming in contact with high-touch surfaces can help prevent exposure to COVID-19. Gloves can also serve as a good mental stop gap in preventing you from touching your eyes, nose or mouth. According to the CDC, current evidence suggests the COVID-19 virus may remain “active” for hours to days on common surfaces where droplets can accumulate.

As we are expected to wash our hands, it’s important to routinely wash your gloves during the pandemic. COVID-19 is vulnerable to standard interventions like soap, water, bleach, UV light, and alcohol-based cleaners. So, how do you wash your gloves? Better yet, how do you wash synthetic gloves versus leather gloves, or nitrile coated knit gloves and insulated gloves? Rest assured, if you own a set of Mechanix Wear gloves, we've made washing them as easy as...

Synthetic Gloves

Our tried and true synthetic leather is one of our calling cards, along with our family of high-performance synthetics like Material4X, Ax-Suede, Armortex, and TrekDry. We recommend washing our synthetic gloves with household laundry detergent and warm water. Machine dry with low heat to prevent material shrinkage, or air dry your gloves to maintain long term material performance.
