How to care our BJJ kimonos – Helpful tips to care for our kimonos.

Having enough kimonos for your training rhythm.

The key to maintaining a kimono is the number of times you train per day. If you are training every single day, then it will be difficult for your clothing to dry in time and they can become dirty or humid if not cared for properly. However, with just one bjj gi (training uniform) someone could go all week without having their clothes washed as long as they have at least two uniforms that can be switched out between workouts so there’s always clean laundry available when needed.

Your kimono jiu jitsu ALWAYS should be washed.

The sweat is highly corrosive to the kimono jiu jitsu tissue, also the acid uric, sweat is more harmful than bleach (believe it or not), chlorides, and the like, so we recommend washing the kimono every week, amid washed extend in a cool place , leaving open the possibility of better ventilation , which makes more efficient evaporation of perspiration.

Be careful with the use of chemicals

Do not use bleach, or chlorine  washing the brazilian jiu jitsu gi, because these products will reduce your kimono jiu jitsu lifetime , losing strength and become susceptible to breakage. Wash with the right products is as important as washing your jiu jitsu gi.

Use water cold to wash your gi

Wash your jiu jitsu gi inside out, always with cold water, since the hot water helps fix dirt and bloodstains.

How to dry your jiu jitsu gi?

Do not put your jiu jitsu gi to dry in the sun, in the shade always in dry and ventilated, the heat causes the fibers to harden , leaving to look hard , the heat also makes the shrink more ease.

You can use fabric softener in the wash

You can use fabric softener, beeter if is neutral composition. Imagine that you get to train with the bjj gi with smellfield flower or dew day.

Beware of Dryers

Avoid drying the kimono in dryers, it can cause the jiu jitsu gis to shrink significantly.

Store in a clean, dry area

Never leave your kimono dirty inside the trunk of the car, lying in a corner of the house, or in a backpack. With the kimono clogged and dirty, the smell is unbearable, and is fertile ground for the proliferation of bacteria.

Keep Your Gi Looking Fresh

Avoid machine wash , wash preferably by hand with mild soap and soap coconut, using a brush to rub the stains.
