off the subject a bit; I usually buy double weave judo gis, and I always use fabric softners (the sheet types) because I really hate a rough gi against my neck. I know this is supposed to break down the fabric, but I typically get at least five years out of a gi top (less on the pants, but thats because I wear down the knees).
Me too, and bleach as well. Never really had a problem with it weakening.
