Yesterday the goalie on my beer league team told me that the reason the palms of your gloves stiffen up, and wear through, is salt. According to him the best thing to remove the salt is to let water run through the gloves and the hanging them fingers up to dry. My question, though, is how much? How much water can the palms take? I figure it would take a lot of rinsing to get rid of about three months of dried-in salt, and these gloves cost a pretty penny, and I wouldn't want them water-damaged. Does anyone have anyone have any experience with this? Any other technique I could use to prolong the life of my gloves? PS. I did do a search, but none of the threads I found discussed this in detail.
