Just like that our ice hockey season came to an end, but there is no end to the dirty, sweaty, hockey clothing piles because somehow they seem to multiply as we leave one season and head into tryout season and the boys finally completely unload their bags.
The end of the season is bittersweet, as they move on to new teams, make new friends and then they compare how their shirts look compared to the ‘newbies’, will our shirts make the cut?
Ice hockey shirts for the travel teams cost a small fortune and as any ice hockey mom will tell you, “we buy them big” to get more than one season. I depend on my laundry detergent to get them clean, fight off stains, brighten and protect them from damage in the wash. This is my story of lavishly living team sports out loud and my 3 tips to keep team sport shirts clean and bright.
3 Tips To Keep Team Sports Shirts Clean & Bright
When I find a great product, I love to share it so today I am happy to announce that I’m sharing #Tide in my life as part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™. I only share products and tips that I feel are relevant to all of you and I am sure that any sports parents will appreciate this find!
These are my son’s shirts, they have been trampled in the locker room, and worn several times in a row because ice hockey tournaments don’t allow us to get it washed right away. When you play back to back games, it is pretty impossible to wash the shirts so the stains, the dirt, all just get really dirty.
I have no doubt that I will clean this shirt without fading and with the ability to protect the clothing we love and that costs a lot to replace.
Make sure to unwad the shirt. That means that most kids pull their shirts off and leave the arms bulked into the shirt. Take the time to get the arms out of the shirt.
Don’t dry the shirt, hang it. I firmly believe that drying the team sports shirts is the worst thing you can do, simply wash and when the cycle is done, allow it to air dry.
Wash in cold or hot, because either way the shirt will clean, but you really need to know what product to use to get the cold/hot results.
