Does it matter what color your BJJ Gi is?

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.
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.

You should wash your spats, shorts, rashguard, gi and belt after every session – and your gumshield should be kept clean too! You can reapply your stripes – it’s sports tape.
