Washing leather gloves

Hi,

How you clean/wash leather gloves?
I have Ixon RS Rallye HP (100% goat leather), and I don't know what is best way to clean them. (i put them once in freezer for 30 minutes to kill bacteria, and smell was gone after that.)
I don't wash them, only rain wash them couple time, but now they start to stink little and look dirty.
I think it is time to clean them properly, but I don't know how.

Somebody have advice how to clean them?

Gas for heating, diesel for plowing, electricity for cooking, petrol for driving

Carefully. I use leather gloves alot. If they stink I gave them a quick go with vinegar inside, then quick rinse. That seemed to de-stinkify. In general like said above, saddlesoap is a standard for the outside scrubbing. Dont soak them, the leather will turn to mush.I use mink oil to recondition them after, it softens it a bit nicely and you get a form to your hand fit.

Neatsfoot oil also works well on the outside, it does tend to darken the leather however.

I like BROWN leather thank you, I buy it natural color (not dyed) and let it darken with age, Neatsfoot oil and bug guts. I don't intentionally clean leather, occasionally mother nature washes it for me and then I use the Neatsfoot to treat the leather.

I've used the Mr Clean Magic Eraser on my white riding gloves to keep them looking close to white
