It is recommended that ISAMU KARATE uniforms/GI’s be washed after every use in cold water with a standard laundry detergent. For the best results, add the detergent to the water and after the machine has just started its cycle, open the lid and place the uniform inside and let it pre-soak for 20 minutes. Then close the lid and let the machine complete the cleaning. After, immediately remove your uniform and hang it out to line dry. Machine drying should always be avoided. We do understand that a uniform can still become soiled and need whitening. In this instance, add a little bleach into the water at the appropriate time during the washing cycle and be careful not to pour bleach directly on the uniform. If you follow these steps your uniform will stay clean and last for many years.
Black Belt Care,
If your belt is dirty then we recommend hand-washing with mild detergent in cold water. As with the uniform, hang it out to line dry immediately after washing
