When washing a colored gi for the first time, do I wash with vinegar + soap? or vinegar without soap?
Tagged: Off The Mat
not sure about the soap. but i dont use it. doesnt make sense to me. and use cold water.
shoot. should probably remember, but what does the vinegar do? didn't know it made a difference with colored gi's. it was something about making the gi stain resistant. is this close?
it sets the color
I am not sure about the gi but I used to wash all of my training equipment by hand.
I have a BLUE gi and i wash it after every use and i have to say it hasnt faded as much as you would think. Cold Water and TIDE
it sets the color. got it. OH! like an easter egg (the kits always say use vinegar). thats good to know. thought about getting a colorful gi and it would be nice to keep it looking somewhat new.
appreciate the tip.
