    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    anyone caught not washing his gi after every class will be choked unconcious (with his own gi), hogtied and hooded (with his own gi), and thrown off the mats (to think about his own gi, when and if he wakes up).

    Wash your gi.
    And what is wrong with febreeze?
    I have a two year old sirius that despite washing with baking soda, bleach and detergent still sometimes needs a little extra help.

    WASH YOUR GI AFTER EVERY CLASS YOU SLOBS!!!!

    * clear throat *

    The thing is that unless you live in a really cold and uber wet forest, your gi would take about 12 hours to dry if you hang it after washing it. And it doesn't have to be an elaborate ritual to wash it either:

    Drop some some borax, some soap and some color-safe bleach on the washer, dump your gi in it, wash and rinse them with cold water, and then hang them on a door or outdoors at night. It will be more or less dry in the morning.

    If you need to take it with you at work, just leave inside your car (on top of a towel) and it will be completely dry by the afternoon - it's not the best choice, but it works. Since hung it to dry all night, it should not be so humid that will stench your vehicle.

    Or better yet, get two gis, or if you are fortunate enough, you may be able to find a used jacket on ebay - pants dry faster than the jackets.

    And if you don't have a washer in your unit, at least put the gi on a bucket with water and vinegar overnight, rinse it and hang it to dry in the morning and put some febreeze when you come back at the end of the day. It won't be ready for use on that day, but at least it will reduce the germs in it until you get the chance to wash it properly (you don't want your dirty gi to ferment anywhere in your home.)

    Nothing really, so long as it's not used as substitute to washing it :tongue6:

    I use to train gi 2x per week and washed my gi only once per week. I wore an undershirt all the time. It helps, yeah?

    Even indoors? Damn. I ask in earnest, I've only lived in LA and South Florida - even in rainy season, **** dries pretty quickly down here.

    all line drying does around here is leave your gi either not dry in time for class 20 hours later, or permanently dyed pollen yellow.

    gis are consumables. hanging them up to dry doesn't change this, relative to putting them in the dryer.

    Exactly. I love when people make some sort of argument against washing their gis after every practice based on it meaning it won't have as long a lifespan.

    I wash my gi(s) after every session. I am still using both the gis I bought when I started (plus now two more) over 3 years ago. They don't fall apart, they're made to be hard wearing!!
