washing jerseys

i just got an ovechkin jersey with pro stitching on it and was wondering if it is safe to wash in the washer and dryer? i know if the name and # is pressed on the pressing will eventualy fall off but is it safe with the stitching?

Nothing will happen if you put it in the dryer but this next whitish stuff will appear on the jersey and wont look as good as pre washed. I just hand dry my jerseys.

In addition to not putting it in the dryer I would turn it inside out when you wash it.

So it is safe to wash it in the washing machine with cold water and detergent? But not a wise idea to dry it in a dryer

wash inside out...dry on the clothesline or something. avoid the dryer, you'll be fine

if the stink is getting to you( i collect gameworns,and some are PUTRID)...the best thing is to hit it with febreez and hang it outside in the summer or spring ALL DAY.....or if its really bad..throw it in the dryer on cool or low heat...with a fabric softener sheet thingy..not too long or too hot tho..

Since you posted this in the Rink section, I'm assuming you must play in it. I don't even machine dry my practice jerseys, since i'm afraid they'll shrink, so I wouldn't recommend it for a game jersey. Read the tags though, they should say how to care for it. I'd honestly wash it the bare minimum though, since you probably paid a fortune and want it to last.

I've always machine wash and machine dried my jerseys, never had any problem with them.
