When these rough rubbery gloves are rubbed together, instead of being earthed the resultant static electricity generated is stored in a small inbuilt high capacity battery. All it takes to unleash this charge through the electro-conductive patches on the glove's finger tips is a slight touch, after the small safety switch on the wrist of the left glove has been switched off. This ability to create,store and use electric charge makes these gloves much sought-after and they are therefore worn by many heroes for their monster-slaying efficiency.
Better just to dry clean but if you must, wipe with a damp cloth (not wet).
