What is the best method to wash cycling gloves? Mine, Nike, did not come with any wash suggestions. Any help?

I wash mine in a sink in cold water with a little powdered detergent. I squish them to get the water really dirty, drain the water and rewash. The second wash water is nowhere as dirty so I drain and rinse good. I then take them outside and, using the velcro straps, fasten them to a tree branch and let dry.

They smell much better afterwards.

just throw them in the washer and in addition to soap, use 1/2 cup of white vinegar. It will help out with keeping the rank smell away longer from all of your cycling cloths. Yeah, I know it sounds like crap but it works.

In the washing machine. But remember to take them out and not leave them in the machine when the next load is greasy rags and you use a lot of bleach. The black terry cloth on the gloves turned blonde. They look like the heads of those bleach blonde boy bands. Now the gloves only see the trainer, too ugly to wear outside.
No choice here.Chen2

My wife takes my gloves from me and throws them in the washing machine. Some of my gloves dissintegrated, the Specialized gloves have held up surprisingly well.
