Thread: Do you have a set routine for gi care?

  1. #1

    Default Do you have a set routine for gi care?

    Do you wash your gi after every class without fail?

    Or is it common for people to wear their gi to multiple classes before washing them?

    If you don't wash your gi immediately after class, perhaps because you don't have access to a washing machine until the next day, does it make it more difficult to get sweaty bacteria and smells out?

    Yes, I wash my gi after every class. I don't see why anyone wouldn't and not doing it is disgusting.

    There does appear to be some quite varied attitudes to gi washing. Personally, I would never wear a gi that hadn't been washed since the last time I wore it.

    I do understand that some people share flats and houses and don't have unlimited access to a washing machine, so they can't always wash it straight after class and sometimes have to leave it until the next day. In this case all you can do is hang the gi up to let it air, but I would never wear it to another class until it was washed.

    This Karate guy has an interesting perspective on washing belts (interesting to me at least).

    That changes nothing. Wash it every time you use it.
