Welcome, Ricky. You'll find that you're among friends here. Have some coffee?
I can go with "all of the above" on your cleaning list. Cleaning a glove is one of my favorite ways to relax. I'm to the point where I occasionally buy one just to clean it. The only part that vexes me is trying to condition it without making the leather too dark after it's been cleaned. I go a little easier on cleaning the buttons these days. As much as I like seeing them shine like they were brand new, I prefer them to match the condition of the rest of the glove now. Of course, bringing out the stampings and signature is always the frosting on the cake. And turning a glove that had the texture of a wooden door stop into nice supple leather is very satisfying.
