Leave the gloves just beside an open window to allow air to dry the sweat from your gloves. It will be left for a couple of days if winter season is around and merely a day during summer days. Be sure that every time you arrive at home from the gym, you hang your gloves right away. If this step has already been a habit you will be assured that there is no way that your friends would tease you for having a bad pair of gloves. Remember that it only works with the fresh breeze. Leaving them on the table or anywhere else would never work at all.
