Softening Baseball Gloves

Did you know that you can use Vaseline instead of oil to soften the leather of a baseball glove? Works just fine!

And while rubbing it down with Vaseline, try telling it how pretty it looks today. That always softens me up. LOL ;)

I've played ball for 50 years! & this is one trick i have learned, beleave me the best way to break in a ball glove OR shoes is with (isopropyl rubbing alcohol !!!) NO oil NO grease NO vaseline all which will let dirt sand & other things stick in & on your glove! take the rubbing alcohol bottle & soak it --play catch--soak it--play catch do this 6 or 7 times !! some gloves it looks like some color is comming off,but they always look fine & it dosen't hurt them at all. (shoes) my friend always gets shoes a half size too small--soaks them then runs in them 3 0r 4 times & they form fit to his feet !! (yes you can do it with white shoes)

Does it work fine? There is a raging argument about how to take care of a baseball glove.


The manufacturers and salesmen are lined up with Vaseline "Yes!" while the leather repairmen and collectors line up saying "No!"
