    I was wondering if someone could explain a little better how to wash a BJJ gi. I know I'm supposed to wash it in cold water and air/hang dry it.

    Do I use detergent? Bleach? Can I put it in a spin cycle in the dryer with no heat? Basically looking for what other people do to clean theirs. Thanks.

    So detergent and cold water, then spin or air/hang dry is fine. Sounds good.

    Wash it in cold water to prevent it from shrinking.
    Don't use too much bleach, cuz if you do, you'll have a nice blotchy yellow'ish gi (assuming it's white)
    If you've got a colored gi and don't want it to fade, wash it with a bit of vinegar every time. 1/2 cup'ish.

    If you want the thing stiff as hell, dont let the washer spin and get rid of the water. Drip dry the thing and it'll be stiff as hell. If you wanna be a massive cock, starch the thing once it's dry.

    I just washed my gi today tee-hee. Adidas Champion blue judo gi. Damn thing's HEAVY as hell. I like rolling around in my single weave better than that thing. I hope you got in on that sale i posted :o Cheap gear ftw
