How often do you wash your skate pants/t-shirts?
« on: February 25, 2022, 09:46:34 AM »
Pants - wash only when they start to smell rancid, I let them air/sun dry after sessioning
T shirts - same thing, except I wash when they start to smell like an ashtray

Tshirts - if I skate in it once. If its only a 30 minute session and didn't get that sweaty

Flannels - Until it gets visibly dirty or smelly, I'm reasonably careful with outer layers

Pants - anything from 2-4 sessions, depending on how grimy the skates were

I don't really have any BO though, and skate pretty clean spots usually so your mileage may/should vary depending

I get not washing a shirt like a flannel every session but wearing a t-shirt more than one session is a bit grimy imo.

Pants - I usually get anywhere from 2-4 sessions before washing.

I have skate clothes specifically for eating shit. It's going to be washed after one session no matter how long.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

After every session. I'm usually in the streets and almost always come home filthy. If I just skate a park, I might only be sweaty. But clothes is still getting washed afterwards.

T shirt one wear then wash. Jumper usually the same but there's times if I took it off early or never got sweaty I'll maybe wear it again. Pants normally just whatever they get out the week unless they got super sweat then I won't wear them again.

Yes. I can wear cut off shorts and t-shirts full of holes if I'm going to spend an hour or two skating a bank in a back alley, but I'd rather not wear that when I have to be out and about. Everything goes to the wash after one session.

Pants: depending on how dirty they got during a session.
Shirts, flannels, hoodies: one session only - I sweat like a mad man

My work supplies me with a uniform so I've been skating in my work pants for 19 years. I'll wear them to work and skate them the next day then turn them in to be washed or vice versa. They give me 13 pair, basically Dickies


I don't own that many pants because of it

Haha this thread is great.
Brings back memories of my old flat which didnít have a washing machine so Iíd go to the launderette like once every other month maybe.
Everything smelled like an ashtray and weed cos I was chainsmoking inside.
Iíd rotate all my clothes - with a sniff check first to see how bad they were - till I had none left.

Not that proud but that was the life.

Depends on how often I'll be skating in them:

Pants- If more often, every two or three sessions. If less, after every session.
Shirts- Only one use per session, regardless. They smell and feel terrible to skate in full of sweat.

Of course I'm not putting them in the washer after every time I use them, it's a weekly process.

I don't think you're supposed to offer to fuck and blow children, especially ones with developmental disorders

Shirts and flannels I wash after every session no matter how long of a session.

Pants I usually wash once a month sometimes more sometimes less. It depends if they are visually dirty or smelly.

Iíve been hand washing my hats when they get super salt stained and smell gross. A smelly hat really bothers me.

I am mostly wearing five panel/camping hats so it's easy to just toss them into the wash and air dry. Beanies are washed with sweatpants, exercise clothes, and the like. Almost all my clothes are air dried. Really only socks and underwear are heat blasted to kill them crotch and foot fungi.

Shirts - every damn day.  And in the summer, a clean one in the car for when the session is over.

Pants / Shorts - once if I sweat enough to get them damp.  Otherwise, 2-3.

Wash everything after every session. Depending on the article of clothing, I'll hang dry so they don't get ruined by the washing machine.

yeah, we just got a washing machine. same story minus the ashtray odor. non-deodorant wearing odor instead. washing machine is tight. can change my socks every day...

but I generally wear the same pair of pants for a week, rotating out with a pair of sweat pants at home. Also got a pair of greasy and oily carhartt pants for working on my van. Those never get washed.

I guess what I'm getting at is that, unless my nice Pendleton shirt, I just wear the same shit for everything and wash it when it needs to be washed.

T-shirts- every session.

Pants and hoods, about once a week.

My wife gets the most shitty about the braces and supports, can't wash those as often and they absolutely stink the place up.

Pre-surgery I had to wear a brace to skate, afterward it'd be stanky. I was using a natural shoe deodorizer to mitigate the stink. It works to an extent, but ugh, I don't miss that fucking thing.

Put your shirts, socks and delicates into a laundry net - stops them from getting deformed and shredded in the washer. Don't overstuff them and you'll get a similar wash to if they were stuck in the machine without. Saved my work shirt and pants especially on the collars and cuffs. Also makes it easier to grab everything out of the washer without dropping stuff.

Air dry them if possible, a tumble drier does a number on fabrics.

Damn some of these responses are wild

The only item of clothing I will wear twice without washing in between are outer layers like sweaters and hoodies. Maybe pants if I wear them for like an hour and donít get anything on them

If Iím skating then the whole kit is going in the wash as soon as I get home

Yíall gotta do better at changing the stereotype skaters are dirty ass bums who give girls UTIs
