What should you buy for Fitness boxing?
Boxing gloves manufacturing companies are trying to add diversity to the design and color of the gloves. Now, they are producing more stylish and protective gloves. As women are also participating in fitness boxing in a large number, companies have given more importance to the style. For example, some gloves are purple in color. Though they look stupid, they are actually adding color and personality to your boring exercise session.
Apart from its appearance, women should be careful about the manufacturing company of the gloves. The company should have a good reputation for their gloves and guarantee the full protection of your hands and wrists. Lightweight (8-10 ounces) gloves are more appropriate for fitness exercising. They provide ample padding and completely fit on your hands.

How to wash-down your boxing gloves?
Boxing gloves are not like other standard gloves on the market. A boxing glove has two sides- outside and the inside. The outside is technically called the ‘skin’ which is made with top grain tanned leather from goatskin/cowhide. Inside of a glove is called ‘padding’ which is made of high-density polyurethane, nylon taffeta, cotton, and (PVC) foam.
A boxing glove is cut, assembled, stitched, stuffed, and finished by hand.
As the boxing gloves are different, there are some special ways to keep it clean, strong, and dry. Here I have provided some ways:
- Gloves easily get sweaty, especially while doing workouts. So, you must keep it open after removing it from hands. The fresh air will pass through the open space and help it to dry soon. Alternatively, you can put the fan to hit so that it dries out the inside and takes the odor away. If you do not take care of your gloves properly, they will not last long.
- You can also use Febreze to wash down your gloves. This is used to kill the bad odor and bacteria from the gloves. Spray it inside the glove and get a fresh glove within minutes. You can use it to clean the outside as well.
- The ringside can also be used for cleaning the boxing gloves. All you have to do it putting it in and then leave it to get a cleaned out glove free from bad smell. But, Febreze is cheaper and the working procedure is also very easy.
You must clean out the gloves and dry as best as you can to get germ and sweat free gloves. If you follow the above-mentioned ways, you will be able to eliminate sweating and damage bacteria completely.
