    And do that 4-5 times.

    If you have the option on your washer, I would let it soak in hot water for 15 minutes also.

    Keep a good eye on it tho. Don't let it shrink too much.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I've heard about the old drier trick. I'll try soaking it as well. I don't believe I need to worry about letting this gi shrink too much.....Anyone else has any other tips let me know.
