How To Properly Care For Your Sports Jerseys

With the big game around the corner, you may invest in a new jersey to wear, or you may have a “lucky” jersey that needs to be washed. We promise a clean jersey can still be lucky! For best results, bring your jersey to the experts at Pilgrim Dry Cleaners. Clean jerseys at home with caution. Do not use bleach for stain removal. Before washing, make sure to turn it inside out to protect the sewn on, or painted lettering. Signed jerseys should be tested before washing by blotting the ink with a damp white cloth and detergent to see if signature will bleed. Do not use too much water when testing, or it could leave a permanent ring around the signature. If no ink comes off, wash on gentle cycle in cold water and air dry. Never apply heat with an iron, or in the dryer.
