A Little About Us - Our Why!


Our Family-Owned, Small Business (Mom operated)

Thegreenglovedryer was born out of necessity.  Our enthusiastic, outdoor loving family needing a solution. We were tired of stinky, wet gloves every morning!  Laying them on our vents just didn't work and waisted energy in the dryer didn't do the trick either. The insides were always damp.  After 8 hours of building our first prototype, The Green Glove Dryer was born and has worked flawlessly since day ONE! Our hope is that using our Green Glove Dryer makes your days a lot easier more enjoyable with Warm, Dry Happy Hands!

With our sincerest appreciation and gratitude, Thank you for your support. 

~ The Smoots Family

"Best Kids Winter Glove Dryer" ~ from our customers

"Love it! I have 2 and use it daily in our Michigan household with 2 young boys. So happy with my purchase! What a great device and better than using the dryer!" ~Vanessa C.

"This thing rocks! No more kids gloves that smell like feet because they never dry all the way inside, or not getting dry for school the next day! I love the simplicity of this design. My kids even think it's so cool they put their own gloves back on it each afternoon. I've been recommending this to anyone who will listen! "~Carmen H.
