I always take really good care of my kid leather gloves...until now. I threw a dress in the wash, certain that I had checked the pocket, only to discover later that I had a pair of gloves in there.  Embarrassed At least they didn't go through the dryer, but they were washed in warm water.

I have them hanging up. They' don't look awful, but I'm worried. Anyone have any tips for rescuing this pair?

not a leather expert by any means, but if they aren't dry yet, I would stuff them with... ? acid free paper or muslin maybe... something to keep them from shrinking.

Maybe pop them on your hands while they dry---then a good rub down with a glove-appropriate conditioning treatment? (You can chortle with evil glee whilst rubbing your hands together for 15 minutes to work the treatment in. Think Appropriately Eeeeevil Thoughts while doing so...)

And then take off the gloves and pet your cat while practicing your evil laugh...
