Hey guys just wondering how do you wash your team/club kit

from,the

Jersey?

Shorts?

Socks?


1.)I'd like step by step instructions please from A. to B.

So far id looked on Wiki how and this is what i got

http://www.ehow.com/how_4996_care-soccer-jerseys.htm
Right after the game, fill the washer with cold water, laundry detergent and 1/2 cup baking soda, put all jerseys, inside out, into washing machine and set for longest cycle with pre-soak and extra rinse option. Use cold water only.
Hang to dry, if it's nice and warm out, let the sun do the drying, but don't put in direct sunlight since the sun will fade the colors.
But What about my socks and shorts??? and how do i know if i can trust this advice? i love my kit!

I asked my mom and that is how she washes my kit. Also you might want to look at the tags because they might have some instructions on how to wash them.

If you're worried about your numbers just put the jersey inside out and wash. Other than that just huck it in the washing machine. Socks, shorts, shirt, all in the wash for me. :P

Shinguards though...not quite.
