I've got SealSkinz Winter gloves (the ones with small gel pads on them). I haven't used them since last Winter and I found that they're a bit pongy now. What's the best way to clean/refresh them?
Be warned though - it's an exercise in extreme frustration getting them turned inside out, and usually even more difficult to get them right side out afterwards.
It mentions turning knitted gloves inside out but not the ones I have. I can't see how they can be cleaned properly if they aren't turned inside out.

Not full proof, but less likely to end in damage.
On one (not a px pun) bag I had the zip itself was sharp and would cause damage in itself, so do check those too.
I have some fairly costly, and much loved garments, so just ordered some more bags to pop them in when used on a weekend ride etc.

My very first pair were full finger gloves and I washed them for a year or so without turning them inside out. After that time they just stank even after washing. Turned them inside out, problem solved and have been doing it ever since - every wash, I'm a sucker for punishment!
