How do you wash Jiu Jitsu clothes?
How to wash a BJJ gi
- Wash your gi immediately after training.
- Always wash your belt.
- Scrub stains with running cold water immediately before washing.
- Avoid bleach.
- Turn your gi inside out before washing.
- Wash in cold water on a gentle setting.
- If you’re washing your gi with other clothes, only wash with similar colours.
How do I get the smell out of my gi?
Air drying is preferred, as putting in a gi in a dryer will soften the material and weaken the threads over time. DO use good detergents that counter or eliminate bad odors. You can also wash with a little bit of vinegar as well and that should help get rid of any bad smells.
Can I dry my gi in the dryer?
This is the most important, although the gi may feel a little stiff when you put it on, however, you massively extend the life-cycle of the gi and prevent it from shrinking altogether. Don’t throw them in the dryer UNLESS you’re intentionally trying to shrink it.
What temperature do you wash Jiu Jitsu 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 you wash Jiu Jitsu belt?
Yes, You Absolutely Need to Wash Your BJJ Belt.
How often should you wash your Jiu Jitsu Gi?
Following these tips will make sure you’re not that person. Ideally you should wash your Jiu Jitsu Gi after every training session, and you definitely should after every session if you work up a heavy sweat. You can make your Gi last a long time and save money in the process by using the proper cleaning techniques.
How do you get the smell out of Jiu Jitsu Gi?
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.
How do you clean a GI with vinegar?
Throw in 1 -1.5 cups of distilled white vinegar, make sure you get your collar, arm pit, crotch areas on your Gi. Then, add a cup of baking soda to the load and a small amount of detergent. (Too much detergent that doesn’t get rinsed out is what collects additional funk.) Wash heavy with warm water.
How do you clean a dirty GI?
If your gi has developed mold or mildew smells and you don’t want to bleach it, you can try tea tree oil. You can make a strong spray with 2 tablespoons of tea tree oil, 1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol, and about a cup of water. Spray this all over your gi and let it dry. Then wash as usual.
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
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.
How long does it take a GI to dry?
In highly humid areas with low temperatures and very little air circulation, your gi can take up to 48 hours or more to dry properly if at all. Slow drying your gi will often result in your gi smelling damp. If your gi is hung outside in the sun on a warm day with a breeze, it should dry within 30 – 60 min.
How do I soften my Jiu Jitsu belt?
Find a round pole like a chair leg or stop sign, place the belt around it and pull it back and forth. Wash it with fabric softener the first time and dry it on hot after every practice or let dry in the sun. Within a year your belt will be very weathered.
How do you keep a GI white?
8 Tips To Save Your White Gi (And Re-Rescue It)

- Give hydrogen peroxide a go.
- Say no to chlorine-based bleach.

Should you iron a GI?
Though a gi should always be clean and pressed, a karate belt should not. Tradition dictates that a karate belt should not be washed or ironed. It should wrinkle and wear out with use.
