    While watching TV... work the hinge areas (If you do this fast the friction helps soften the leather quicker) Take the fingers and thumbs and work to the center of the palm.

      Stay away from oils. They can cause problems over time.

      Any product with Lanolin is best.

      I use Wilson Pro Stock glove conditioner.

      I also work with the pitchers who are dealing with injury problems.

        Shaving cream works good. I use Barbasol.
