Looking After Your BJJ Rash Guard

To take good care of your BJJ rash guard and ensure its longevity, here are some tips:

1. Wash After Each Use: It's important to wash your rash guard after every training session. This helps remove sweat, bacteria, and oils that accumulate during training.

2. Rinse Immediately: If you can't wash your rash guard immediately after training, rinse it with cold water as soon as possible. This helps prevent stains and odors from setting in.

3. Cold Water Wash: Use cold water for washing your rash guard. Hot water can damage the fabric and affect its elasticity.

4. Gentle Cycle or Hand Wash: Use a gentle cycle on your washing machine or hand wash your rash guard. Aggressive cycles or machine washing with rough items can cause pilling or damage the fabric.

5. Mild Detergent: Use a mild detergent that is suitable for the fabric of your rash guard. Harsh detergents can degrade the fabric and affect its performance.

6. Avoid Bleach and Fabric Softeners: Bleach can weaken the fabric and cause discoloration, so it's best to avoid using it. Fabric softeners can leave residue and affect the rash guard's ability to wick away moisture.

7. Avoid Excessive Agitation: When washing, avoid excessive rubbing or agitation, as it can lead to fabric damage. Gently squeeze or press the rash guard instead.

8. Air Dry: After washing, hang your rash guard to air dry. Avoid using a dryer, as the heat can shrink or damage the fabric. Direct sunlight can also cause fading, so choose a well-ventilated area or shade.

9. Fold Properly: When storing your rash guard, fold it neatly to prevent wrinkles and creases. Avoid placing heavy objects on top of it, as this can affect its shape and elasticity.

10. Avoid Rough Surfaces: Be mindful of where you place your rash guard. Avoid rough surfaces or Velcro straps that can snag or damage the fabric.

11. Check for Damage: Regularly inspect your rash guard for any signs of wear and tear. Look for loose threads, stretched seams, or areas that might need repair. Address these issues promptly to prevent further damage.

12. Rotate Between Multiple Rash Guards: If possible, it's beneficial to have multiple rash guards in your training rotation. This allows each one to have ample time to rest, air out, and recover between uses, which can help prolong their lifespan.

By following these care tips, you can keep your BJJ rash guard in good condition, maintain its performance, and enjoy its benefits for a long time.
