Thanks - saved me from making a mistake.
Best way to wash cycling jerseys/bibs/gloves/headbands/socks/etc. is in cold water on gentle cycle with liquid soap, then hang up immediately to drip dry. Well...the socks I don't normally hang up. I just drape them over a folded up towel in the laundry room. The rest I hang in the doorways overnight. They are pretty dry by the morning.
Again, cold water, gentle cycle, liquid soap, hang immediately to drip dry. No softener, no regular cycle, no dryer, no "dry" soap. YMMV, works for me.
