Can I wash my gi?
Always wash your gi in cold water, 90-100 degrees maximum. If your gi is a little bit too big and you actually want it to shrink a little bit (sleeves), you can wash it at 110-120 degrees, but NEVER over that temperature. Cotton shrinks and our gis are 100% cotton.
Should I wash BJJ belt?
Yes, You Absolutely Need to Wash Your BJJ Belt.
How do I get rid of GI funk?
If your gi is super stinky, you can pre-soak it in a vinegar and water solution in your washing machine before washing it. Start with 1 or 2 cups of vinegar per gi and enough water to cover the gi(s). Use trial and error with the amount of vinegar and the time you need to soak it in order to get rid of the smell.
Can you tumble dry a Jiu Jitsu Gi?
Tumble drying low is fine, if you want to tighten up the fibers, but avoid leaving it in too long. Finally, unless you want to give your gi to your kid sister, avoid drying on high heat.
Can you shrink a Jiu Jitsu belt?
If you are going to do it, just wash it. Then check out the length. Then if you want it shorter (provided it will shrink), just put it in the dryer for 5-10 minutes (some regular interval) then check it again, and so on until it’s the right length, and air dry from there. Thats about all you can do
How much will a BJJ Gi shrink?
How much can a gi shrink? In the first six months, a gi will typically shrink 1-2 inches. Over the course of the next year, your BJJ gi will most likely shrink another inch or so. Of course, the amount your gi will shrink depends on the quality fabric used in the making of your gi.
Can I wash my belt with my GI?
The belt gets just as dirty as the rest of the uniform; containing all of the bacteria, fungus and mites as your uniform does when worn. You should wash your spats, shorts, rashguard, gi and belt after every session – and your gumshield should be kept clean too!
Is a GI machine washable?
To keep your BJJ gi clean and in the best condition possible, machine wash it inside out in cold water using a gentle wash setting. Once the wash has finished, immediately hang your gi to air dry, keeping it away from direct sunlight.
Do you wash belts?
Washing the belt more thoroughly with soap and water could completely ruin your belt, so it’s best to use it as a last resort. However, if you’re throwing it out anyway, washing the belt by hand may save it. Rub in more water and soap to try to clean the belt.
