For many years, I have worn leather gloves for heavy construction work, and I have found that the inexpensive, stiff gloves last just as long as the expensive, soft, pliable ones. Now I’ve found a simple way to make them fit comfortably and help heal rough hands.
Using the thickest hand cream you can find, coat your hands with a liberal amount, slip on the gloves, and go to work. The cream soaks into the leather, softens it, and forms it to your hands. In a matter of minutes, you can’t tell inexpensive gloves from expensive ones. By the way, the lotion also keeps the gloves from getting stiff after being wet and drying out. They also seem to last longer.
