View Full Version : Odd question

Here's an odd question for you guys, but an important one: What's the best kind of laundry detergent for washing tennis apparel? I ask because tennis apparel is expensive and it's obviously made out of a better quality material then your normal clothes so I'd like to take the best care of it that I can.

Anyone have any suggestions? Do you just use whatever detergent you normally use but with a less amount?

I just wash it with Tide Cold laundy soap. I do all of my laundry in cold water and let it hang dry. It works well enough for me and doesn't carry any of the weird smells! :)

+1 on the Tide Cold.

I still use a dryer for mine on normal...no odors or wear issues from it for me.

I didn't realize polyester qualified as a high quality material:)

Just follow the example of Tony Roche. Former Grand Slam winner who only owned one pair of tennis shorts at a time. After a match he would wear his tennis togs into the shower, soap up, rinse and then hang out to dry.
