Washing Jerseys

Sorry if this is a bit OT, or if this has already been discussed, but I have a NYR CCM jersey from 2 or 3 years ago (white, if that matters), and I got a bit of mud on it.

Is it safe for me to wash at home? Do I need to dry clean it? Also, if I can wash it, what settings should I set for the washing/drying?

Thanks!

I throw mine in the wash with my other clothes just fine. But when in doubt, cold water..hand wash and air dry.

Definitely do not dry clean your jersey...any dry cleaner you take it to will (or at least should) tell you the same.
The CCMs I play in I machine wash in cold, tumble dry low.
My CCM Brodeur jersey says the same thing...do not iron, bleach, dry clean or stir fry. But I've only hand washed that one and air dried it. That would be the best option, IMO.

Let us know how you make out.

Machine wash cold, hang dry. Especially if it has anything heat pressed on it. If everything is stitched, throw it in the dryer.

There should be two tags...one on the collar and the other will be sewn on the inside of the jersey on the left side.

It also depends if it is autographed. If it's not, wash away. If it is, I would only spot wash the mud stained area.

I turn mine inside out when I wash. Protects the cresting.

The only thing with that is that sometimes the stitching gets kinda wonky. I'd say air dry no matter what.

Lol, thanks for pointing that out. I never noticed it

I'm gonna machine wash-cold it, which is what it recommends on the label.

Does the stitching ever get ruined when washing it, even in cold water? This is a rangers jersey, so all the lettering is stitched on.

I wash ours inside out, cold water, gentle cycle if I have to do it at home, but I prefer taking my autographed one to the laundromat and using a front loader. That's because I don't trust the stitching with a wringer washer. I've had no problems drying in the dryer on the lowest setting.

Authentics do not have a care tag.

Machine wash gentle, warm water is fine, to keep your crest in good shape. Do not use fabric softeners or machine dryers. Hang dry and i siggest folding a towel in half long way and drape over the hanger under the jersey while it dries.

OxyClean will not damage your jersey, should you need to remove any stains. For tough stains you can mix several cups of it into a gallon/gallon and half of water and let soak over night.
