    Augh....I purchased 2 sets of custom fit black leather gloves and while they fit like a second layer of skin, they turn my hands blue/gray.

    The manufacturer stated that the dye will bleed for the first few wears. However, after wearing them daily for a week I decided to wash them to try and get the dye out. I washed them by hand twice and got a ton of dye out.
    Let them dry and wore them...still a little dye bleeding...Augh!!

    It's been three weeks now and they're still bleeding, so I decided to go the long route and wash them in a washing machine at the laundromat today. Used a little soap on the warm cycle and after being washed they're still in good condition...

    BUT THEY'RE STILL BLEEDING DYE .
    This is so ridiculous it's funny .
    Well, at least my wife thinks so.
    She warned me not to order black gloves...now I can say...again...."I should have listened to the wife".


    Anyhow, anyone have a suggestion on how to stop the dye bleed?

    Thanks in advance.[​IMG][​IMG]
