Re: Got my gi today :)

When I got my first gi, it was a touch large so I really fried it in the dryer a couple of times to shrink it. Since it fits well now and I am afraid to shink it any further, I try to air-dry it when I can, but this takes a very long time...and lends the garment an unfortunate cardboard-like consistency. In a pinch, I've found, using the dryer on "low" works just fine.

And if you haven't got time to wash your gi between every workout, say an evening practice and a lunchtime session the following day as I often do...a little Febreze, strategically placed, will do wonders.

Good luck!
