The Ultimate Guide to Washing Your Sublimated BE Gear

We all know how nice it is to rock a fresh kit on game day, so we're giving you some tips on how to keep your BE Sublimated Jerseys looking clean. Let's dive into the ultimate guide on how to wash and care for your sublimated gear to keep it looking sharp and performing at its best so you can too.

Understanding Sublimated Gear: What Sets it Apart?

First things first, let's talk about what makes your BE gear special. Sublimation is a printing technique where the ink is fused directly into the fabric, resulting in vibrant, long-lasting colors that won't fade or peel, no matter how many intense games you play.

Pre Wash Prep

Before tossing your gear into the wash, take a moment to address any pesky stains. Whether it's grass, mud, or sweat, tackle stains immediately after wearing to prevent them from setting in. Gently blot or hand-wash stained areas using a mild detergent or stain remover. The quicker you tackle these stains the better!

The Wash: Handle with Care

When it's time to give your kit a proper wash, follow these steps:

  • Rinse First: After wearing, give your jersey or shorts a quick rinse to remove any excess dirt or sweat. This helps prevent stains from becoming deeply embedded in the fabric.
  • Wash Inside Out: To protect the vibrant colors and intricate designs of your sublimated gear, always wash it inside out. Use cold or warm water – never hot – and wash it separately from other clothing items.
  • Choose the Right Cycle: Opt for a low spin cycle or delicate setting on your washing machine. 
  • Skip the Fabric Softener: Resist the urge to use fabric softener or bleach, as these can dull the colors and compromise the performance of your jersey.
  • Stain Removal: For stubborn stains, continue to treat them by hand during the washing process. Avoid harsh scrubbing or abrasive cleaners.


    Drying: Air is Your Friend

    After washing, it's time to dry your gear. Here's how:

      • Hang Dry: Skip the dryer and opt for air drying instead. Hang your jersey and shorts on a drying rack away from direct sunlight to preserve its vibrant colors and prevent shrinkage.
      • Patience is Key: Remember, air drying may take longer, but it's worth the wait to keep your kit in top condition.

    Make sure your gear fits right from the start

      • Rinse and Air Dry: Rinse your hat thoroughly with cold water and allow it to air dry completely.
