It's terrible when noobs do this.
It's even more mindboggling when a black belt does this.
Just waiting for the paperboy.

I have 3 Gis and I wash them after every practice. I thought this was normal?

I only own one but I don't bring it if I haven't washed it first. The only problem so far is that there's this collection of dirt or something around the knees that will not come off, and I'll be damned if I bleach the thing.
Woah. Alex Van Halen got huge.

Ever since I started I always washed my gis directly after use. For a while though, despite this rigorous laundry ritual (and the fact that I own 4 gis, soon to be 5), my gis would really start to smell powerfully after I'd work up a sweat. It was noticeable even to me.
Then my instructor told me about how colored gis (I own no white) always develop a funk because you can't bleach them. If I wanted to fix the smell, I should wash them with color safe bleach.
I do this now, and have the most pleasant scented gis in the dojo.

Despite the fact that I was my Gi after every use I also have those "darker" (slightly) spots at the neck and where the other people use to grab a lot and I tried washing it two or three times but it didn't help.
So I thought about bleaching it, I am not sure how this works out because I have a gi with patches and some artwork on the back and I don't wana ruin the thing by bleaching it... I guess I should only buy blue Gi's from now on. Or black ones with the "get of my back" logo in the neck, that thing rocks.
Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.
At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

Renzo Gracie NYC
New York Combat Sambo

Every dojo should have a back-alley exit. Anyone showing up with putri-gi should be taken out to said ally and the offending garment doused with kerosene. Once it's been set alight, the offender can try to doff it as quickly as possible. Live or die, repetition of aforementioned offense is unlikely.

Black Gis hide all manner of spores, mold and fungi.

I have to use the loaner Gi since i haven't bought my own yet, i'm not sure it's ever been washed in its decade long lifespan.

Worse than mold and fungus
Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.
