How hard is it to Relace a baseball glove?
Re-lacing a glove is something that can be done in just a few hours. It’s true that the first few times you do it, re-lacing can be one of the more complicated types of softball and baseball glove repair, but we promise that you’ll become more comfortable with the process after having done it a time or two.
What can I use instead of a baseball glove?
Shaving cream softens and moisturizes your skin to make shaving more efficient and comfortable. Shaving cream works on leather gloves the same way it works on skin, by softening and moisturizing. Avoid shaving gels and creams that contain added perfumes or use alcohols that may dry out or damage the glove.
Is glove steaming bad?
Steaming your glove is easy, quick and effective. However, the process can negatively affect the leather’s fibers. (That’s why steaming voids Wilson’s one-year glove warranty.) Steaming your glove will soften it, but will also make it less durable.
Should you tighten baseball glove laces?
There is no right or wrong answer to your question, but as long as the glove catches well, the laces are tightened to your liking and you oil your glove from time to time, your glove should last for a while.

Can you use olive oil on baseball gloves?
If your beloved, aging baseball glove is showing signs of wear and tear — cracking and hardening of the leather — you can give it a second lease on life with an occasional olive oil rubdown. Just work the oil into the dry areas of your mitt with a soft cloth, let it set for 30 minutes, then wipe off any excess.
Can you use baby oil on baseball gloves?
You don’t need to douse your glove in baby oil for it to get nice and soft. Just use a drizzle and work it into the leather. Repeat as necessary.
Is Vaseline good for baseball gloves?
Vaseline is another substance you can use to break in your glove. Vaseline contains various mineral oils and moisturisers that are effective leather softeners.
