How to Keep Your Jersey Looking Like New

Jerseys are a great way to show your support for your favourite team, but over time they can get dirty and worn. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to make sure that your jersey lasts for years. Let’s look at how to keep your jersey looking like new.

Wash Properly

The first step in making sure that your jersey stays in great condition is to make sure that it is washed properly. Here are some tips:

  • Most jerseys should be washed on a gentle cycle with cold water and mild detergent.
  • If possible, turn the jersey inside out before washing it so that the fabric won’t be exposed to direct friction from the washing machine.
  • It is also important to avoid using fabric softener when washing as this can damage the fabric.
  • After washing, hang or lay your jersey flat to dry rather than putting it in the dryer. 

Avoid Stains

Stains are one of the biggest enemies of a good-looking jersey. To prevent stains from occurring in the first place, try not to eat or drink near your jersey or wear it around people who do.

If you do get a stain on your jersey, act quickly! Blot up any excess liquid with a paper towel, then use a stain remover spray or dab at the stain with some mild detergent and lukewarm water. If all else fails, take it to the dry cleaners!

PRO TIP: There’s of course the chance that you wear your jersey while playing hockey, soccer, or other sports! Sweat stains are best removed by detergent specifically geared towards this type of tough stain.

Store Properly

When storing away your jersey for long periods of time, make sure that you hang it up instead of folding it so that there won’t be any creases or wrinkles in the fabric when you take it out again. You should also avoid hanging jerseys in direct sunlight as this can cause them to fade over time. Finally, if you plan on keeping multiple jerseys together (for example if you have several different teams), make sure that they don’t touch each other while they are being stored as this could lead to fading and discoloration between neighbouring fabrics.

To Wrap Up

Taking proper care of your jerseys will ensure that they last for years and continue looking their best! By following these simple steps—washing properly, avoiding stains, and storing properly—you can keep your favourite piece of team apparel looking its best for years to come! Go team!
