May 30, 2024


At My Club, we understand the pride and sense of unity that comes with donning a custom sports kit. These personalised garments represent the spirit and identity of your team, and proper care is essential to ensure they maintain their vibrant colours, crisp designs, and comfortable fit for seasons to come.

Washing Instructions

Proper washing is crucial for preserving the quality and appearance of your custom kit. Always follow the care instructions on the label, as different fabrics and materials may require specific washing methods. As a general rule, it’s best to wash your kit in cold or lukewarm water, using a mild detergent designed for athletic wear. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as these can damage the fabric and cause colours to fade. If your kit has any embroidered or printed designs, it’s best to wash it inside out to prevent premature wear and tear.

Stain Removal

Grass stains, mud, and sweat are inevitable when playing sports, but acting quickly can prevent them from setting in and becoming permanent. For fresh stains, gently dab the affected area with a clean, damp cloth or sponge, being careful not to rub the stain further into the fabric. For tougher stains, you can use a small amount of mild detergent or a specialised stain remover designed for athletic wear. Always spot test the product on an inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn’t cause discolouration or damage.

Drying and Storage

After washing, it’s essential to dry your custom kit properly to prevent shrinkage, fading, and the growth of mould or mildew. Avoid tumble drying where possible, as the high heat can cause fabrics to deteriorate over time. Instead, air dry your kit by hanging it or laying it flat in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight. Once completely dry, store your kit in a cool, dry place, folded or hung to prevent creasing or wrinkles.

Proper Fit and Care

During Use Ensuring your custom kit fits correctly is also crucial for maintaining its quality and appearance. Ill-fitting garments can lead to excessive stretching, tearing, or chafing, which can shorten their lifespan. Make sure you make use of our size guides upon purchase! During use, be mindful of any rough surfaces or sharp objects that could snag or tear the fabric. If your kit becomes excessively sweaty or dirty during play, it’s best to change into a fresh set as soon as possible to prevent the buildup of bacteria or stains. By following these simple care tips, you can ensure that your custom sports kit remains a source of pride and unity for your team for years to come. At My Club, we’re committed to providing high-quality, personalised sports gear that not only looks great but also stands the test of time and intense play.
