I am curious. I have gloves made for bee keeping. They are a soft leather hand with a canvas type sleeve that goes 3/4 the way up my arm. After doing this cut out and handling the comb w/honey oozing from it, my gloves are a mess! Is there any way to get them back to something usable not just a sticky mess?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

My gloves are the Bucko goat skin ones and to clean them I just put them on, wash my hands with soap under hot water then hang them up to dry.
They get a little stiff once dry but just crumple them up a few times before putting them on and they are as good as new.
