    "When it needs it, whenever that may be"
    That sounds very philosophical.:D

    In the U.S.: Every other use.
    In Brazil: Once a week.

    As of now i train once a week, which is on thursday night 6:45 to 9:00pm, i wash my gi after every training session, i will probably cut down once christmas break gets here, when i start training 2-3 days a week. They just take to log to air dry.

    i train 3-4 times a week I dont wear it 4 times in a row but 3 isnt bad I usually wash it after 2 days training

    ps I alway throw it in the dryer before I train with a dryer sheet:)

    Do you guys think it hurts to over wash the gi. Does it make it less durable?

    Wash after Every use. A good gi will endure the washing

    Do you all hang Dry the gi or machine dry the gi?

    i'm the same way! for some reason i prefer the coarseness. plus i think that the dryer adds extra stress on the gi over a lifetime of use.

    hey do the stains always come off your gi when you machine wash them?? Ive been using a brush to get the stains out when the machine doesnt get them, i wonder if thats bad for it..

    Honestly i dont know my buudy has a white gi and it looks filthy, he was it adequately but it still has stains all over it. Luckily i have the blue gi you cant see anything on it.
