Modern fabrics are generally hard wearing but some can be delicate and need to be cared for accordingly. Always follow the washing instructions and suggested temperature settings. Most recommend avoiding fabric conditioners and tumble drying. Fortunately, jerseys air dry quickly. Also be mindful of what you
wash kit with and don’t just sling your expensive riding garments in with everything else. To reduce fading some brands suggest you avoid drying their jerseys in direct sunlight. Even though many jerseys are given an antibacterial treatment they can start to stink after a while. This is where dedicated sports laundry products can help.
