How to clean your karting gloves

Exhaust, oil, dust. Kartwear is constantly submitted to dirt, and needs to be regenerated after every session. Actually it's not hard to do: the layer of dirt can easily be removed with little work, elbow grease and the right products. Here we show how.

OMP Multipurpose Degreaser by Ma-Fra will be the key element of this operation.
Its special formula with balanced ph helps to blast out grease and dirt from every kind of fabric.

TOOLS
• OMP Multipurpose Degreaser
• Water in a spray bottle
• At least 2 rags

Here's our glove. It has gone through a difficult racing weekend and now we can check all the stains we're about to treat.
This glove is a typical example of post racing weekend conditions: small stains of oil dot the lower portion of fingers (the most exposed one due to the handle of the steering wheel) and the wrist. All this along with an opaque patina. We'll tackle all this elements, getting the glove back to its brilliant colour.

First of all, we'll take our OMP Multipurpose Cleaner by Ma-Fra and insert the nebuliser in the bottle.
Then, spray some product on the dirty area and leave on for about 15 seconds.

After 15 seconds, take a rag and vigorously rub the area. This way you'll finish the work of the OMP Multipurpose Degreaser by Ma Fra, which melted, teared off and fragmented the dirt. With your rubbing action, you'll remove it.
Repeat on each dirty area.

MIND THE RAG!

The action of the rag is fundamental: it actually removes the dirt and the powder that were previously "destroyed" and teared off by the cleaning product. Consequently, the first rag you'll use will be full of dirt. So, use a second, clean rag to dry the glove after it's been washed with sprayed water.

After a generous rubbing, it's time to take the bottle of water with nebulizer.
Spray the water on the interested area, then wipe away with a clean rag.
Finally, let the gloves naturally dry by hanging them, but avoiding to expose them to the sun.
