    I wash mine at least once, usually twice, a week, but I have gray sweat stains around the collar and the cuffs, a gray dirt stain across the upper back from rolling around on the mat, and a yellow and orange stain across the waist from cheap dyed belts bleeding color. And they just won't go away.

    It's not a big deal, but it's annoying. I've tried oxyclean, clorox, clorox 2, everything I can think of. I don't want to drop another $60+ on a new one when there's nothing really wrong other than the discoloration, so I'd be grateful for any advice.

    oxy clean and Clorox ultra always works for me. But i wash mine once a week. Never had a problem. But then again i wear underarmor under mine, so i dont get it soaked with sweat.

    Twice a week is plenty. I always wash before it starts to smell.

    Man I train 4 days a week and I HAVE to wash it after every class or else it smells (for other people). I can't stand people who have smelly ass gi. One brazillian kid rarely washes his gi and I struggle BADLY when he has me in north/south position :wtc::barf:

    You should really wash your gi more

    Not washing your gi after training is sketchy and disgusting.

    I wash my gis after one use, always. I always have like 4 clean gis in my car for multiple training sessions a day.

    But that doesn't stop the gray. Must be the shitty college public washers. Still makes me look hard. :mamoru:

    that's disgusting. :ugh:

    it's not just about the smell... you should wash your gi EVERY time you roll or you're just asking to get a staph infection or ringworm or whatever...

    fuckin buy another gi or something... no excuse dude. :nono:

    It's not like I lay around in shit and only wash when it starts to get moldy. I hang it up to air out after one practice, and wash and bleach it after the next. Is that really that terrible?

    You're either the least skilled troll in the world or terrible at reading. Try again.

    Hahah judging from this thread, NONE of you should go train in Brazil. Most of the guys wash gis once a week. In that heat. After the gi ferments after classes for an hour on the bus ride home. Yummmmy.
