Tip of the day (new jersey)

We have all been there. You buy a new jersey or get your new club jersey for the season and your first event of the year is coming up.
You want to show off your new colours. Stop! before you use any jersey wash it. especially if it's a white or a light colour.
At this time of year the roads are wet, dirty and soaked with diesel oil. You will finish the event black. When you try to wash it if is was white it will have turned into a horrible grey colour if it light colour it will have a tinge of grey.
The best thing to do is to wash it first, the soap particles will attach themselves to the fibres so when it does get dirty the dirt doesn't absorbs quite so much. When you wash it you stand more of a chance of it coming out clean.
