Ladies and Domesticated Bachelors of the forum a lil help please.

As a good bachelor I used to take my time and hand wash my beloved Adidas Soca Warriors #10 with Love and some Softlan Gentle detergent and then I would hit it a small rise in some Comfort fabric sorfener....put it on a hanger to air dry and feel happy and contented.

It just so happen that over the past few weeks this jersey see plenty action and was thrown in the dirty clothes pile unnoticed.

I made a grave mistake.....and had poor #10 Tumble up in some BREEZE along with the rest of my clothes, it get some extra strong fabric sorfener and then unknown to me #10 was tossed in the DRYER......A CARDINAL SIN.


So here is my predicament.

I wearing the jersey NOW but it looking like it come out a cent paper bag.

It ramflee ramflee and the numbers look like they get kinda warped with the heat of the dryer...they lil bend up. However they not unsticking from the jersey so that is the only positive.

I then looked on the inside and the label states in NO FABRIC SORFENER, it have a Dryer icon with a big X on it as well.

I nearly dead!

I cuss whole morning...imagine 450$ and the jersey take lix....steups.

Anyway my question is.......the IRON icon was not crossed off.

They had instructions to wash and Iron on the reverse.

Now from previous clothes...I know yuh cyar iron football jersey....it go melt, Shine or burn hole.

Has anyone of you ever ironed this new Adidas kit and if so what were the results.

I want some advice before I go and shit up meh #10 even more.

Sincerely,

Domesticated Bachelor in training.

Try wetting it and smoothing out the wrinkles with a iron. Doh set it too high doh.Iron on de inside to be safe eh!!  Hopefully de iron go smoothen it out...and de water go help....and plus the water go prevent it from burning. If dat doh work and anybody tell yuh yuh juzzey need to iron....jus say yuh make a mistake and put de iron on ramfle.  ;D

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

You can put in on the ironing board and put a sheet or some other flat linen fabric over it and try to iron it. Make sure that even with the sheet over it the printed side is face down on the iron board.

Use low heat and see if it helps.

Good luck man.

Only thing I could suggest is that you flip it inside out, iron on low heat but full steam...The steam should take care of the wrinkles.
For future the best thing for any football jersey is to wash in cold water on Delicate cycle without frabric softner and then hang dry.
well yes

hello, even if you iron inside out, make sure to put a handkerchief or wax paper, or something like that under the numbers/letters, otherwise they will stick to the other side-
when in doubt, do not ever put a good jersey in the dryer
good luck :)

essexgirl22! Do you know how much they are asking for those jersey down in Trini. Those jerseys costs a bit of money an not alot of people have it like that. I paid $450.00 and had it fed-ex... so I understand the man dilemma. By any means necessary its called! ;D

# 10 Has Risen Again.

Forumites.

I hit #10 with some Skip laundry detergent and I heng him up to dry on a plastic hanger.

When the jersey was nearly dry...I pull a damp cloth, put the iron low, put a full steam, turn him inside out.....rest the iron on the garment and with love and tender care, applying just the right amount of pressure....smoothed the creases till the numbers were flat and normal once again.

The Jersey Looking brand New like it now come out the clear see tru plastic bag in Francis.

And it smelling good too.....also the numbers have not raised up or unstick from the jersey so it worth the 450$

I will now have to get the white Away #10 and take even more care with that one.

Alyuh.....I posted this thread to make sure alyuh ent F^&*up alyuh gament.

Let the wife, or girlfriend read the directions and make sure and cherish this jersey. It belonged to the most talented player in my generation to put orn the red black and white.

Let me give you some incite as to why we need dryers in TT.

Right now is rainy season....so rain hitting yuh at 8 in the am, a little after lunch and just before 5 in the afteroon.

Then you have to deal with a bigger menace...Birds and their droppings.
A load of clothes has been soiled many a time from a corbeaux,picoplat, pigeon or one of dem damn black birds that peck you in yuh head when yuh passing.

Finally the biggest menace of them all.....sprangers, aka, fingers, aka pipers aka drug addicts...aka bandit.

Unless you have a pitbull or a highly aggressive pothound aka dustbin terrier, and you on the lookout, a load of washing may not last too long on the line as there are people who like your drawers more than you.

Dryers are a must!

for those of you in the US, or for those who can get their hands on one in TnT...an "onion bag" works just as well.  This is the nylon mesh bag than onions and oranges are often sold in here in the US...and like a larger version of the mesh bag that 'chinee' marble used to come in long time.  Works wonders for all delicate materials, including knit hats in the winter time.
