Washing an autographed jersey?

Wed Nov 28, 2018 8:11 pm

Dumb question I know, but my autographed Sammy Hagar jersey needs a wash. If autographed with a sharpie, will it remain or get washed out?

Funny thing happened to my brother. He had a Ronick jersey signed by JR. Well my mom washed it and the signature came right out. There was just a faint line where you could see his signature. So my mom got a sharpie and traced it out. I think she told my brother a few months later. Moral of the story. Be very careful.

I've only done it once when I had a couple jerseys that needed cleaning: I was told to turn the jersey inside out, use only cold water, and line dry it afterward.

Autographs stayed. All jerseys were signed on their number.

YMMV.

I wouldn't do it, either get it dry cleaned if it needs a washing, or just Fabreze the crap out of it if it smells.

I tried putting one in a washing machine a long time ago, & it put wrinkles in the patches & numbers. That was washing it inside out, on cold, & letting it air dry.

I googled this topic. Whats been said here is pretty spot on but it also suggested setting the ink with a hot iron or in a dryer at the highest setting appropriate for the fabric type.

So have you tried washing it yet? I'm curios about the results.

Never tried it yet. Too nervous. I wonder about dry cleaning. CD One Price is a Wolves sponsor and will clean Wolves jersey's for free all season

Lemme double check through my jerseys, but I'm pretty sure the only instructions I've ever seen are "DO NOT DRY CLEAN."

That's probably why they offer to do it for free :)
