    How do you prevent a brand new gi from shrinking at all.

    By hand is the second best way if you want to too turn yellow and smell like an armpit (the best way is using the top loaded machines in brazil). Wash it hot from the start and if it shirks alot you can sell it and buy a GI of the right size.

    Hang dry, sure. But how do you keep it from getting stiff as a board?

    Alot of people say that you shouldent use fabric softner since its will weaken the GI.

    It wont turn your GI to ashes instantly. I have also used it and my GI is ok. I could still be bad for it.
