How to wash a soccer jersey?

Keywords: soccer jersey, hand wash, machine wash


If you love soccer as much as we do, then you know that a high-quality soccer jersey is a must in a real fan’s collection. It's the best way to show your team spirit and be recognized by other players on the field. But, what happens when it gets dirty? In this article, we will discuss all you need know while washing your soccer jersey.


The ideal way to wash a soccer jersey is hand wash with cold water.Using hot water can sometimes cause your favorite jersey to shrink, fade in color or become damaged.Washing by hands will be more gentle than you wash with the machine.Using a tub or container, mix together a solution of water and  detergent.Place the jersey in and allow it to saturate in the liquid. From there, gently scrub it to remove odors and stains. When you’re done, rinse it with clean water and hang it up to dry.


If you want to save time and energy, it’s better for you to do a pre-wash and put in the machine.Here are the steps to properly wash and dry your soccer jerseys.

The washing machine isn’t that functional. It cannot wash off some hard stains.So you need clean the stains on the clothes before putting it into the machine.Stains like sweat are easy to clean with detergent. But some grass, blood or beer can be stubborn.Here are some tips:

-Turn the jersey inside out and soak the stained area in cold water.

-Apply the detergent on the stain(vinegar, soap or shampoo)

-Gently rubbing the stained areas with your fingers or soft-bristled toothbrush


2.Pre-Soak The Jersey In The Dertergent

Before washing a soccer kit, always try to pre-soak it in cold water for 20 minutes before beginning. It will help ensure water and detergent penetrate through all the fibers in the soccer kit fabric.If that doesn’t work, just let the jersey soak overnight if possible. Make sure the water and detergent levels are appropriate to the load size and be sure the detergent has fully disintegrated into the water before adding the kits. This will help prevent build up or staining on the uniform as a result of clumped and trapped detergent.


3.Separate Soccer Jerseys With Non-Soccer Garments

Mixing your soccer uniforms with other garments may cause undue damage to the kit. For example; a zipper on jeans can scratch and pull at polyester fibers or cotton from hoodies, making them look opaque as well dirty after time spent in contact for heat pressing logos and numbers onto it. It's best if you wash kits separately so that they don't become irreparable due carelessly mixing their fabrics without regard! If you really treasure your jersey, you should wash your uniforms separately.


4.Turn the jersey inside out

If you want to maintain your jersey, you’d better turn the jersey inside out before beginning washing. This protects the garment from rubbing against the machine walls, therefore extending the life of the jersey.


5.Choose the proper detergent

When choosing a washing detergent, it’s best to choose one which is specially formulated for sportswear.Gym clothes require a tough sports wash that can address tough stains and odors.


6. Put your jersey in the washer

Washing your jersey in the washer needs a careful touch also.Here are some tips:

-Use cold water for washing your jersey. Hot water may cause fading, shrinking, and damage to the decals.

-Use good quality,mild sportswear detergent and put the proper amount

-If your jersey is stinky, add vinegar to the washer to neutralize the odor. However, add the vinegar through the bleach dispenser, otherwise, your jersey will absorb the vinegar odor.


7. Finish the cycle and examine the jersey

When the cycle of the machine finishes, check to make sure the stains have been removed. If not, rewash them by hands.


8. Always air dry

Putting jersey in the dryer machine is not recommended. If you dry it with the machine, the jersey is easy to wrinkle. The patches and writing on it can also be ruined. Hang the jersey on hangers to dry is the best way.Most often it will take 2 days for them to dry completely.
