we are trying something new. a friend works with leather and suggested it. after each game, a long wipe to get the dirt off. every other week of so, rub a little pure lanolin on the dry areas and/or flex points. good so far. it takes very little (half of a dime size dollop for whole glove). it goes far. Lanolin is in Lexol (previously mentioned). You can find it at drug stores in the nursing section.
