  • The right way to wash you BJJ Kimono The right way to wash you BJJ Kimono

    Washing your BJJ Gi

    We all like to buy something new, don't we? Perfect product, brand new, that unforgettable smell ... With a BJJ Gi it's no different and of course we always want to keep that feeling for longer. A lot of people ask for washing tips and now the time has come: we have put together some basic instructions that will help you extend the life of your Atama Kimono!

    So, unless you are still living in ancient Japan with those ladies above taking care of your kimono, you should pay real attention to the tips below ;-)

    1- UNDERSTAND YOUR PACE - if you train a lot, several days a week, one single BJJ kimono will not be enough. Have more than one and switch between them. So both can last longer.

    2- ALWAYS WASH! - there is no way around it, if you used you MUST wash it. Never leave the BJJ Kimono wet and muffled inside the bag, backpack or lying around. This will only cause it to proliferate bacteria leaving an unbearable odor  (for you and others).

    At the time of washing, pay attention:

    a) Always use cold water.

    b) Try to wash your colored BJJ kimonos by hand and use neutral soap. Ok, we know that hand washing is not easy, if you go ahead and use the washing machine, please make sure to choose the right soap without any kind of bleach or chlorine. 

    c) Under no circumstances use bleach! This can damage the fabric of the BJJ Gi and you will not want it, right? If you have white BJJ kimonos, you can use half a glass of bicarbonate of sodium to make them whiter - but that's all!

    d) Dryers can shrink the BJJ kimono, so avoid it too! Hang dry them in the shade, it's the best option.

    Remember, a clean BJJ Gi shows respect for your master, your friends and yourself!
