Washing your jersey

How do you do it? I have an older Thornton that has sewn numbers, and my new black Nabokov jersey will be those heated numbers ... I have yet to wash my Thornton jersey as I only wear it to games and am extremely careful not to get anything on it. But what if I do? How would I go about washing it without ruining the crest or the stitching? I don't want to have the stitching on the numbers frayed ... and what about the heated numbers? Would it be washed differently?

I'm guessing I would just hand wash and hang to dry, avoiding the dryer like the plague. Am I wrong?

I just hand wash the area that's dirty and hang dry. If your sweater is really messed up, you could throw it in the machine and then hang dry it after. I do it with all of my sweaters before wearing them, even if they're stitched. The crest gets a little frayed, but it's very minor and the numbers are virtually unaffected. If you do go with the washing machine route, I recommend ironing out the crests and lettering with a thick towel between the iron and the sweater before hanging them to dry. You'll get rid of any wrinkles that the machine makes and your sweater will look pristine.

You could put them in the dryer, just use the no heat/delicute cycle. I do it for all my jerseys (ones I play in, and Sharks). You're probably better off hanging it to dry, and it will dry fairly fast, but a delicute cycle won't hurt. I also only wash my Sharks jerseys after wearing them several times. They don't get too stinky considering I wear them once a week (at most) for 2 1/2 hours (and always with an undershirt(s))

You can wash them on normal, and hang them to dry.

Drying usually takes less than 24 hours and gets them pretty clean.

I play a lot of hockey and sometimes use my Sharks jersey for a game or two, so they can stink pretty bad. A normal machine wash + air drying will usually take care of any scent.

If you have a specific stain, a cleaning stick or spray before you run the load should work as well.

Give it a good Turkish Shower, just drench it in Axe.

I cold wash mine and hang it to dry, sometimes on the gentle wash cycle or whatever. I usually only do it when I (or someone) has spilled beer on it though...

I currently turn mine inside out and put it into a large pillowcase, tie the end of the pillowcase and put it in the washer with cold water. Then hang dry.

I washed and dried one of my jerseys in the past and the logo came out with creases in it. I then had to iron it. I used and damp towel, put it over the front logo and ironed over the towel. worked great.

Inside out on gentle then hang dry ... sounds good. Thank you all.

I think I'll pass on the Turkish shower though.
