How to wash a jersy

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Look inside the head opening, you know, the place that ur head goes through, tends to be slightly larger than the other two holes which are indentical (that big word means they are the same), and smaller than the bottom opening. Now you'll possibly see two tags (little pieces of material with writing on them), one will probably have the maker of the jersey and some other info on it, ignore that. The other piece will have "Care Instructions" printed on it, follow those. If still not clear on how to do this complicated task, go to your LBS where you purchased the jersey and ask them, im sure they'll have a good laugh.

Ask your Mommy to wash your jersey with her delicates.

Maybe the OP needs to view the washboard scene from "Far and Away" for a demonstration. (but, a washing machine will work, too)

Wash in washing machine using the delicate cycle, cold water (for wash and rinse), and maybe a slightly less than normal amount of detergent with no bleach (i prefer Tide HE Free liquid detergent).

Then hang dry.

Preferably wash cycling clothes by themselves or only with other things that require the same washing method (delicate cycle with cold water). Also, if you're only washing afew articles of clothing (such as only 1 jersey and shorts), you can throw in a towel or two for some extra cleaning power (through extra agitation).

How many "how to wash clothing" threads do we need? WTF?

We obviously need a "laundry" sub-forum.

Whatever you do, don't "Bounce" your shorts...you might get saddle sores.

Wash along with darks. Hang dry.

That's it. No special handling required.

The psychology behind how many times "wife" and "mommy" are interchangeable is a little disturbing.
