How to Care for Your Soccer Jersey

December 9, 2019


Hey guys, this is Mason from SoccerPro.com
and I have a couple tips for you to help you keep your jersey looking fresh
and clean just like the day you bought it. Alright, so the first thing you’re going to want to do is
presoak the jersey. What you can do is if your washer has
the option for presoak you can do that otherwise, you can just put it in a pool
of cool water and just let it sit there for about twenty minutes before you put it in the
washer. Now, after you’ve soaked up the jersey, what you’re
going to want to do is turn the jersey the inside out. Now, this is going to protect from any name, number
sets, patches you have on the jersey from falling off. It’s just going to help ensure that that
stays on there for a long time. Now when you’re ready to put the jersey in the wash
make sure you use a coldwater setting. This is going to make sure that the jersey
doesn’t bleed and that the adhesive on the name and number sets won’t peel off. Also, don’t use fabric softener. This can
actually make the name and number sets wrinkle up. Once the jersey’s done in the wash, you’re
going to want to take the jersey out, lay flat or hang dry. Make sure you do not put it in the
dryer. This can make the name and number sets peel
off and actually the logo on the front as well, as you can see. By utilizing the tips we’ve given you today,
your jersey should last a lot longer. This Real Madrid jersey we have here was
taken care of. The name and number sets still look great, the logo on the
front still intact. As you see on this other jersey, it wasn’t taken care of,
it was thrown through the dryer and the logo on the front is starting to peel off. At SoccerPro, we include one of these jersey
care cards with each of our new jerseys we send out with name sets. Now, this has all the tips we talked
about today to help you take care of your jersey. Make sure you do that and get the longest life
possible out of your kit.

    What's the difference between licensed and replica jerseys??

  • Reply SoccerProVideo July 5, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    Licensed replicas are manufacturer by Nike, Adidas, Puma, or other officially club licensed manufacturers and generally cost between $75-$100…unlicensed replicas are fake jerseys and will cost far below that, but are made of inferior material…often with child labor

    You can either send it back as defective, or use a stain pen to treat the effected areas and then wash it

  • Reply SoccerProVideo March 21, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Some stains can't be removed, but for the most part, if you get the jersey in the wash quickly they with lift off the fabric.

  • Reply SoccerProVideo March 21, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Don't use any pretreatments or dryer sheets when you wash your jersey

  • Reply SoccerProVideo March 29, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    Your best bet is to take it in to a local shop that does heat-pressing or customizes apparel. They'll be able to help you or recommend a product that can work. Without actually seeing its hard for us to be able to tell you what to do.

  • Reply SoccerProVideo April 1, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Its best try and pull at base of either end of the snag, but not on the snag itself to get it go back into the fabric as much as possible first. You should be able to fix it that way

    It will mess up the jersey. Well that's the video says. I wouldn't risk it especially if you paid good money for an official jersey.

    How can you take care of wrinkles in jersey? Please respond

  • Reply SoccerProVideo July 5, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    The easiest way would be to wash the jersey like we state in the video and then hang it on a hanger and let it dry. If you must iron it make sure you are using a polyester setting on the iron and put a cotton sheet or white t-shirt over the top of it to avoid melting the jersey because it is very easy to do which is why we recommend never ironing one, just to be safe.
