Washing / Drying Your Century Brazilian Fit Student Jiu-Jitsu Gi
Always wash your Brazilian Fit Student Jiu-Jitsu Gi at 30-40 degrees centigrade. Washing at a higher temperature can not only cause excessive shrinking but can also wrap the collar of the jacket. Washing and drying at high temperatures can cause the collar to warp out of shape.
Always wash your Brazilian Fit Student Jiu-Jitsu Gi inside out, this prevents other clothes or indeed the Gi itself from rubbing the fabric. Especially in colored Gi’s this will help to keep the Gi’s correct color for longer.
DRYING – Under no circumstance should you place your Brazilian Fit Student Jiu-Jitsu Gi in a tumble dryer, this will cause high levels of shrinkage and will stress all areas of the Gi causing it to lose shape (see above section on washing at high temperatures)
Always allow your Brazilian Fit Student Jiu-Jitsu Gi to dry naturally do not let it dry at any high temperatures, i.e., radiators, towel rails. A method We recommend is to place the Gi’s on a clothes hanger and position it about 1m from a radiator. This Method allows the warm air to circulate and dry the Gi, without the excessive temperature.
If you have the option, outdoor dry is preferable to an indoor dry. This method is faster in the summertime, and the sun will likely contribute to killing bacteria/germs on the Gi. For more info “sun’s effect on bacteria.“
– If you are one of the people who likes to iron their Gi’s, please iron inside and not over any of the patches. Even though the patches on the Brazilian Fit Student Jiu-Jitsu Gi are woven in, they can sometimes stick to the bottom of the iron.
– By nature, all BJJ Gi’s will shrink slightly (no matter what some brands might say!). Cotton is a material that will absorb water heavily when washed. When the Gi is thoroughly dried, the material will shrink back and condense down to its tightest form.
If the Gi is dried quickly at a high temperature, the water evaporates from the material quicker, and the cotton condenses or shrinks more. That is why when washing and drying you should do so at the lowest temperature possible.
