Where to get Jerseys Cleaned?

Hi guys,

I spilled a bit of beer on my old 2003 Oilers CCM Pro... and my (2002 Salt Lake City) Team Canada Jersey got a bit of dirt on it after the craziness in Van.

I was told to stay away from dry cleaners because it'll come back frayed. Any truth to that?

So... if anyone knows where I can find a reliable place and let me know, that'd be great!

Thanks in advance!

I've been washing all of my jerseys at home now for years and never had a problem or noticed any unusual wear

in the words of the late great Billy Mays, "Oxyclean it!"

I just wash mine at home. It's an infrequent enough thing that the jersey doesn't get worn down from it. Just don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets and you'll be good.

Try a washing machine. That's what they are made for, cleaning clothing.

The jerseys you have are pretty much the same materials as what the NHL teams used before the RBK edge system, so do what NHL teams did and wash them in a washing machine. They should react fine.

The new RBK Edge Replica jerseys are cheaper and wear faster than the old replicas did.

Jerseys? Out behind the barn. There's a hose and some bag balm on the shelf by the window.

The only suggestion is that I turn mine inside out so to save the lettering.

And let it hang to dry, don't put it in the dryer.

Even replica jerseys clean up awesomely. If you're nervous about putting it in the washing machine (like if it's autographed or something), just do it in the sink with laundry soap. Let it soak for 20 minutes then rinse it out. I've never had a stain that didn't come out.

But yeah, don't put it in the dryer.

I'm serious when I say this but that's exactly why I only wash my jerseys in the summer time, maybe once more at the start of the hockey season... probably about once or twice a year in total.

hang em out on a line to dry, cuz for the rest of the year it's just too damn cold! haha

This is absolutely right. The dryer is the real killer. Just wash in the machine with cold water, and gentle cycle if you have it. If not, no biggie. Hang or lay flat to dry.
