I've tried oils before, but have never been satisfied with the result. The best method I've found is:
1) place a baseball (or softball if that's your sport) in the base of the web to form a nice pocket
2) close the mitt around the ball and secure it with string
3) submerge the mitt and ball in a bucket of water and let it soak overnight
4) remove the mitt from the bucket and place it on a layer of towels in a dry location
5) let it dry on its own (this can take several days). you should turn the glove over once every 12 hours or so
6) after its dry, untie the string, remove the ball, and you've got yourself a mitt that's ready to go
