Washing your gear

What do you guys do for washing soft goods(jerseys, pants, headbands, packs, etc etc) because I'm pretty curious about how to wash my pack. Jerseys and the like I do them just like I do regular laundry.

So how do you guys wash your stuff?

Cold water, no dryer for everything except your pack and big things like that.

Nothing in the dryer! Except a tee or long sleeve tee. Trust me.

I just set all my stuff outside and let it air dry, or somewhere in the house. If all else fails read the tag it usually has directions on what you should do.

There's a dryer or air dry.... That being said, of course you'll air dry everything.

Wash the pads, pants, jersey, headbands, etc. in the washer on cold/delicate. Remove all and hang them up to dry. For the pack lay it down outside and spray it down with the garden hose, hang to dry.

anything with velcro on it, I separate using mesh laundry bags. Like these:

They hold one garment in each... Run it through on a cold cycle and let air dry. My pack is washed about once a month. Everything else, as soon as I get home from the field.

These mesh bags keep the Velcro from wrapping everything else up?

I throw my pads, pants, jersey, headbands, and socks into the wash on cold. Put pads, headbands, and socks in dryer on low setting.

Since I live in an apartment and have no hose, I will wash my pack in a large square bucket in the bathtub then let it airdry afterwards.

Cold/cold, All free and clear detergent, 1/4 cap softener, scoop of oxi-clean, air dry. Almost every time after a day of play if not every other. Cannot stand the smell of old sweat and paint balls, could make me puke, people all running around all nimbly bimbly smelling like swass

Jersey, pants, forarm pads, knee pads, headbands, gloves, tank cover all go into the wash (cold/cold, heavy delicates setting, extra rinse cycle). Make sure all your velcro items like your knee pads are hooked up to it self so it does not mess up your jersey. Let everything line dry.

I rinse my pants off with a hose before puting them in the wash. I also wash my pack and cleats off with the hose, they do not go in the wash.

Washing your mask is also simple, just remove the lens and run it under a faucet, let it air dry in a dish drying rack.

I have thrown my pack in the washer by its self on gentle cycle then hang dry it. Works really well. Any tips on cleaning paint out of the foam on a mask?

I just wash everything in my sink with cold water. I then shake the excess water off and sit it all on a towel to let it dry itself. I do this with my pod pack, mask strap/soft ears, and gloves. Just make sure you wash your stuff the same day! You don't want to let paint sit on your stuff for days after playing.

Just run it under the sink. I do it with my i4's and it gets all the paint off.

I use an old toothbrush with a bit of water on mask foam. This is to prevent water from getting into the lens plus I've found that more water touching the foam seems to lead to the foam lasting less time. I used to run water over all my mask but after getting condensation in my lenses and foam seperation I stopped that.

I also tend not to wash my gear as often as before as I've found that oftentimes they come out with more wear/ripped stitches from the washer than the field. The rubber on my Dye pants came off from washing rather than sliding, etc...
